I'm up and running again, and quite happy to leave buggy, flaky ICS behind. Now it can be just a bad memory.
Thanks very much for the file download links and your instructions on how to do it.
And also a huge thanks (!) for helping me (and mercifully quickly, haha) when I was hung up. It was good news that it was something so simple, although I apologize for troubling you with a problem I created by my mistake. I truly appreciate you sharing your time to help me.
It might sound silly, but doing this removes a little bit of stress from my life, and it's for that I'm grateful. Thanks again and God bless!
