Theoretically, do you think I could install the actual OTA or should I proceed with the manual ICS files you provided?
if you have the stock recovery,and all your apps you could take the OTA if you wanted. it will download the exact same files that you will apply manually,so i guess it comes down to wich will download them faster the phone or your PC,and wich one do you trust more to download without error
the end result is exactly the same,neither loading the files manually or letting the phone download them will provide any advantage over the other.
