    In the guide it warns not to up date if the phone is rooted. When the devs do what they do and release a version for rooted users, where will it b posted? Thanks. Very excited for this

    Just updated to ICS and playing with it. Great thing is that I can disable a bunch of built-in applications now.

    bowhunt,

    there is a rooting subsection in this forum. DonB is also a great asset when it comes to ROMS. he may post here or you could reach out to him via PM.

    Amaze camera/camcorder stopped working after upgrading to ICS. Had to uninstall it.

    I am doing the update now.

    I was told by a very wise man to follow these steps:

    1. Backup entire SD Card to Computer
    2. Download & Apply Firmware Update
    3. Do a Factory Restore (Do not format SD card)
    4. Reinstall Apps
    5. Enjoy new Firmware!

    As soon as the Devs get the release in their hands usually within a day or so they will have a stock release for you to flash, we will have it posted in the ATR section

    Yes the Amaze camera is not compatible with ICS, I have tired to get it to work with rooted ICS Rom for months and no go, and many others have tried also with no success, you can try the CameraICS app in the play store, give it a shot see if you prefer it it.

    I'm having to wait on a rooted official ics to come but obviously you need root access to uninstall most preloaded bloatware even with the ota

    Not all preloaded apps, there are some that they allow to be uninstalled.

    I tried:

    3D Games
    Nascar
    Blockbuster
    Qik Video
    Spider-Man
    Sprint Radio
    Sprint TV and Movies
    Telenav GPS Navigator

    None of them were able to be removed. I could have sworn I was able to remove some of those apps before the ICS update.

    That is interesting, most of those should be able to be uninstalled. Have you tried uninstalling them with TB Pro

    Yes, strange indeed. I tried uninstalling the apps through ES File Explorer and it told me that the app includes "system apps" and that I need root to uninstall them. Not sure what's going on. I did do a complete wipe (including SD card) after updating to ICS.. not sure if that makes a difference.

    Before you rooted users ask in this thread, I already posted a release from a Member over at XDA minus the Hboot and Boot removed in the ATR section, use at your own risk. ;)

    Handcent SMS is not showing contact pictures anymore, as well as some contacts in People are not showing Facebook pics anymore...According to the Play Store, alot of other people are experiencing this using Handcent SMS and Android 4.0+...so its more than likely an issue with that, and not our phone directly...
