Default ICS General Impressions/Tips & Tricks

Hey all. Thought I'd make a thread where we can discuss our newest OS. General thoughts, problems, tips & tricks, etc. Have at it.

Two problems: SD card won't mount, and no phone/dialer icon shortcut.

EDIT: Got the SD card mounted, still no phone icon or personalize icon as shown in the official documentation.

Not having either of this problems... I did nothing special and both phone/dialer icon are where expected and SD card mounts with no problems.

A few things of note:

Contact links... gone (had to relink, done automatically except a few)
Facebook settings... gone (had to disable notifications and relogin)
Power Profile (High Performance, Standard, Economy)... gone
Sleep Profiles... gone
Camera save directory... back to default
CDMA/LTE set back to default (I had it set to CDMA only)

Just a few things I have seen in poking around for a couple minutes. More to come as I find them.

One problem I've noticed is that all my album art is incorrect in the HTC music app.

Never mind. Just did a reboot and it seems to be fixed.

Llama no longer supports having different volume settings within the same profile (I would set my notifications to low volume while I'm sleeping, but keep the ringer the same - can't do this anymore).
I, too, had to redo all my contact links. Also all of my general sound settings (ringtone, notification, etc).

Also, I think ~12 of my apps immediately prompted for updates, to make them compatible with ICS.

Definitely not a fan of them switching the "cancel" and "ok" button positions on most of the system pop-ups. What's the point?

Had to enable the wireless network, and reset the phone, to get it to pull down a data signal after the upgrade.

I do like the "app association" option in the phone settings. Also, I was happy to be able to disable Facebook messenger, but disappointed that I can't do anything with the stock bloatware (Slacker, HTC messenger, etc).

After all the hype, I'm actually not entirely sure why this is so much better than GB - but I'm looking forward to figuring it out.

Everything is smoother/faster. Web browsing has improved. Native animations function without using a third party app (spare parts). Signal switches better between 3g and 4g. There is a new power setting that is by default set for the WiFi to use less battery. I didn't realize this and thought my modem was crapping out. Switched to full power WiFi and its great again.

The confirmation box switch is a pain but after a couple weeks you get used to it.

HTClinkifydispatcher.apk is responsible for that new "App associations" menu, which also forces URLs from YouTube or Google Maps to open in the browser rather than their respective apps. This is part of the aftermath of the Apple lawsuit. XDA has a fix for rooted phones [How-To] Remove HTClinkifydispatcher.apk to open YouTube links to the YouTube app etc - xda-developers

Thank you! I thought I was going crazy everytime I hit cancel. I knew they switched them! Why?

Also I am having the MIA phone app issue. No idea why.

In app associations menu it lists maps, the way i read it is that it would still open the map app if i click a map url

Default ICS Update Glitches?

Has anyone else experienced the white screen with green "HTC" logo coming up every time you close anything (apps, settings, menus, etc.)? I did not have any errors during the update but that screen comes up more often than not. It lasts ~5 seconds and then I am able to see my home screen. I've tried shutting down completely and restarting...no change. Any advice??

That sounds very odd. Especially after the reboots.

Factory reset is in order I think

Will that erase everything on my phone that isn't on my SD card? I've never had to do that before so I'm uncertain about the process...

I'm appreciating any and all tips and tricks...
I love this update more than I thought I would. It's very well done, in my opinion.

I noticed now that when an article on a site like 'Huffington Post', it gives the option to share or save the article, as well as a direct access to Facebook as well.

All in all, I'm very impressed. Makes the phone seem more sleek, smooth, and fresh!

I'm seeing the same problem. Not looking forward to doing a factory reset, but I might do it if I see that someone else has done it and it fixes the problem.

So far I really like this. Everything seems to run smoother and faster. I really like the layout and the new features. It will be fun getting to know this.

One problem for me was that all my music playlists were erased. My albums etc are all there but my playlists are gone.

Make sure you don't have close apps I'm not using or however its worded clicked. It literally closes everything, including widgets and wall paper. So it has to reload the screen each time you access it, hence the HTC splash screen.

Can someone explain why it is recommended to do a factory reset after an OS update? I've seen that on other threads, but I'm not clear on why. My phone is running great after the update, so I'd like to know whether it's worth the hassle.

Hopefully the whole factory reset thing won't be as painful as before. ICS should have an option to backup to Google servers. Settings > Backup & Reset > Backup my data. This SHOULD allow your market apps and data to restore after a reset. This is one of the greatest improvements in ICS I think. Haven't tried it on a Rezound yet but its worked on my Gnexus just fine.

Try "Settings", "Developer options", then un-click "Don't keep activities".

I clicked it and got the HTC screen after closing every app.

Just finished update, was not rooted, and everything is working fine. All pics, etc are there. And FoxFi works like a charm. Getting closer to being as good as my Incredible. One thing I don't like are some of the pictures I take. In some of the indoor shots faces look a bit fake, for lack of a better word. Kind of like those Charles Schwab (spelling?) Commercials with real people with coloring added over them.

Settings > Developer options > Background process limit

Try that. It depends on how heavy your favorite apps (the ones you end up reopening and leaving on in the background all the time) are and how taxing it is on Sense. Start with 4 apps, and reduce it after every three or so HTC splash screens, or until you're lacking enough multitasking ability to do what you want. If it doesn't work for you, go back to Standard limit.

Of course, I am running .10 so if you can't find Background process limit, that would be helpful to know.

And heck, maybe I don't even know what I'm talking about...

(Also note, I have no idea why I stuck a Dalek in there...)

I was a very anti-factory reset person at first. I held off doing a factory reset on my RAZR... but man, when I did I fell in love with my phone all over again. My wife is out of town right now with her Rezound, so I am not sure if you can wipe your cache first but if you can do that also. My apps were auto-redownloading but I stopped it so I could pick and choose what I wanted back on my phone. But ya, I would say do it, it is going to take you a bit to get back to where you like it - but it is well worth it.

I think this problem is exclusively with URLs. I tried looking up directions on google maps on the PC, and then sending them to the phone with the Chrome to Phone extension. Previously that would cause the Maps app to launch, now it just launches the browser. Thankfully clicking on an address will still open up Maps.

Another change I noted is when you set a wallpaper, the cropping rectangle is actually the correct shape and aspect ratio now. You no longer have to guess which center part of your image will *actually* end up on your home screen.

I think I would have liked the old Incredible style scrolling wallpapers, but I can see how that would:
1) Be weird when you can scroll all the way around from panel 7 to panel 1.
2) Use a lot more memory than on an Incredible, since you'd be storing something like 1440x1280 (1,843,200 pixels) image instead of 960x800 (768,000 pixels)

I seem to not have this function available. When I click on an app,all I get is the force stop, uninstall updates screen. Hitting menu doesn't do anything at all. Help. Would love to disable some of the crap that keeps asking for updates.

Everything else seems okay with ICS update so far.

If FoxFi is running fine, can you let us know how you have it set up?

I can't for the life of me get this running at all... Neither Wifi nor BT work.

Now... does it work? I don't know yet... But the option is there...

is there some place i can go to find out what precisely should be changed or not in ICS? the reason being, i am looking at some sites that talk about everything that is in ICS, and i do not have all of these things. for instance, i cannot swipe sideways in my app drawer, there is no new people app, etc. anyone have any info on this? thanks.

People app is a product of Sense, so is the way the app drawer is set up. Not sure how that looks on Sense 4.0 phones but that not changing is because of the UI

Personalize, display, lockscreen shortcuts. Select which apps you want. Then go to settings, privacy and check phone and message notification previews.

Nice! Would have never thought of the privacy tab. First person to try a factory reset please report back. Is yours checked to backup by default?

I had the exact same problem. I was like how the f do i make a call with this "phone"? Not until two other people in my office did the upgrade (and had the phone shortcut) did I realize something went wrong with my update. I did a factory reset and the phone icon magically appeared. But for the life of me, I cannot root this phone using the method I did with GB (but that is for a different thread). Doing the factory reset sucks monkey balls, but at least you get a clean slate (and the ability to make phone calls).

I think she meant the actual notification pull-down window.

@gidget - when i am on the lock screen the notification windows just pulls down same as when phone isn't locked. It should work even if you dont have a notification. Try pulling it down

Also, I think ~12 of my apps immediately prompted for updates, to make them compatible with ICS.

Definitely not a fan of them switching the "cancel" and "ok" button positions on most of the system pop-ups. What's the point?

Had to enable the wireless network, and reset the phone, to get it to pull down a data signal after the upgrade.

I do like the "app association" option in the phone settings. Also, I was happy to be able to disable Facebook messenger, but disappointed that I can't do anything with the stock bloatware (Slacker, HTC messenger, etc).

After all the hype, I'm actually not entirely sure why this is so much better than GB - but I'm looking forward to figuring it out.
If you go to settings, apps, and then all aps, you can click on most of the bloatware and either disable them or, if that doesn't work, uninstall updates first and then you're given the option to disable them. I did this to a bunch of the bloatware craps like slacker, nfl mobile, etc. They no longer appear in my apps list, nor do I get the annoying update on Google Play store for apps I don't use.

Hi, long time lurker, 1st time poster. Since I downloaded the ICS upgrade yesterday, I've only noticed 1 minor issue & I'm wondering if someone here might know how to fix.

On my Favorite Contact screen, one (and only one) of my contacts is not showing their Facebook photo. Everyone else's photo is there. I tried logging out of FB, logging in and syncing and also unlinking & re-linking FB to this person & neither has worked. When I got into my Friends in FB, his photo is there.

Anyone have any other ideas I might try? Thanks for the help

Default Anyone notice heavy battery drain after update?

Since the update my battery usage is way off. I am draining the battery like never before. Funny, my wife and I have identical phones and hers is perfect after the update. Her battery life is much better. Why me?

Any suggestions?

I have this same problem - only, it's for the majority of my facebook contacts, not just one or two. However, there ARE some that do have their picture - it really does seem random! The pic shows for some people that I have only in FB, for some it doesn't - and it shows for some that I have both in FB and other contacts (gmail, yahoo, etc), but then doesn't show for others.

I've tried the same fixes as you have, as well. I do notice that if I open the individual contact, on the right it has a broken Facebook link - but I was always under the impression that meant that it was a contact you normally had on your phone, and it didn't know whether to link to the facebook match or not (?)

Have you checked your awake time? Sounds like your phone is not sleeping.

Open the contact in 'people' and hit menu>edit>then click the picture (or where the pic would be if there isn't one), you should get the option to choose which picture to use for the contact, ie. facebook, google, twitter, etc

If you can narrow down a certain app that is misbehaving then a uninstall - re-install should do the trick.

It is advisable to do a factory reset though after a major OS update

I have used GO SMS for my default text messager since I've had my Rezound. I like that it allows a different notification sound and much more customization for my contacts. But I have a big issue after I did the update last night. I can't get any of my contacts photos to show up.

So, I tried to use the stock messenger. The contact images show up but I don't see any way to customize the notifications individually.

I tried Handcent and there was similar problems pulling the images.

Typically, the images pull from Facebook images and they also attach to the individuals in my phone book so their photo pops up for caller ID.

I have noticed there appears to be 2 Facebooks on my phone. One I can find and one I only see when I try to upload pictures. Facebook for HTC sense. After the big download and reboot last night, I had a hard time connecting to Facebook and things erroring out.

Frustrating. Sorry this is so long winded, but if anyone has any tips, suggestions, etc. I will be ever grateful.

Thanks!
