    Having several problems too...
    Definitely major lag with long press. But in the last 4 hours my home button has completely stopped working. At first it worked in some apps, but not others, then it stopped completely. I've had to hold the power button down and reboot to get out of some apps.

    Confirm the long press is not working in stock Swype for numbers. Might have to look into the settings on that one.

    Have not tried turning 4g off yet.

    Also had some data issues, where an app was trying to log in but the data arrows in the notification bar never lit up, and the app never logged in. I even tried rebooting, same problem. So far I have not been able to login with that App or two others at all.

    Also the auto brightness works even when disabled, and auto wifi still activates even when turned off.

    So far everything I have plugged my phone into reports as USB, slow charging. Even my 1.5amp PC USB Ports, three 1amp car chargers, and three wall chargers, one of those is a 2.1amp charger.

    I am eagerly awaiting AOKP

    Not that particular app, but I am using an app to control the cpu and governor.

    I experience some lag here and there, its occasional but noticeable when I open a web page with tons of flash content.

    On a side note, has anyone noticed the sudden growth in the Spectrum community? Its like we get the update and BOOM! Lots of people. Just an observation. Everyone's welcome, just means a bigger family.

    First boot was laggy as heck. Couldn't stand it. Rebooted, still laggy. Factory reset and first boot was laggy , but muddled throrugh istalling all of my apps (including Nova) from PLay Store.

    Rebooted and set Nova up and wow...

    The thing flies now. I like it better than my Galaxy Nexus (Better battery life, better signal, better sounding voices on calls)... Loving this.

    Haven't even rooted yet, but it looks like I will be shortly.

    Yea u think the dalvik caches post launch on this rom, not post boot.... It loads faster, but seems to take forever to cache up. After it does, though, it's smooth.

    The Autobrightness has to be set with a base brightness now, so have to slide to base.

    Long press on top keys inserts a number for me...
    There is a setting for delay press. Left mine at short. In Accessibility.

    Battery life is worse than everything I used but stock.

    Bug: Default browser disables autobrightness and sets max. Has own setting in Browser. Stupid... -_-

    I find battery life is shit when I'm 3g,but on LTE, it's Dar better than gb.

    The way ics KILLS gb is in standby. In ics, it goes into a deep sleep and uses practically no juice... That's not the case with gb. So of you're a moderate user with long standby periods, you'll see improvement. If you're a heavy user, you likely won't see any benefit.

    BUT... This build is smooth and doesn't have all the bugs v6 did. Also, I was plagued by random reboots and haven't had one yet... And I've been using the phone a lot.

    3rd morning with ICS. Last two mornings, the Spectrum was going bonkers, making calls, opening the browser, messaging, etc by itself. I did not plug it in last night, no need, the battery life is outstanding now. I can't believe the software swap makes such a HUGE difference. Battery was at 76% this morning. Still kind of anxious to see what happens after a few hours on the charger though. I don't think the wackiness will go away on it's own.

    So strange. I leave mine plugged in all night and almost all day while at work and have had zero issues unplugging or even while draining the battery completely (Plague Inc, followed by netflix).

    Out of curiosity, have you done a factory reset?

    (Now that we have root, you should be able to back up your apps/data...just test it a night or two before restoring anything risky)

    I know it's not the easiest answer, but I'd recommend a 'factory restore' and if it continues, then pushing the cab to the device.

    Ok, numbers have started working in Swype... Still no home button, and button savior home button doesn't work either.

    Anybody else having this messege since the OTA?
    Don't know what to do about it. Called Verizon support and they didn't know what it was or what to do. So now I've come to the REAL pros!

    I got it too. Other says, it can be removed or freeze, so i root my ICS, and freeze it.

    Freeze it through Titanium

    Yup. It's a system app under titanium or rom toolbox. You can't freeze it without one of those kind of apps.

    So you're saying I have to root first to freeze?

    Thanx... I'll wait until D2A and Neph have unlocked the bootloader unless it actually starts causing any probs.
    Also a noob question... if I were to brick my phone, voiding warranty, couldn't I just run it over with the car and then get it replaced? How would verizon know it was bricked?

    My display settings reset themselves to default at some point. Also, the lg charger that came with the phone show charges also

    Verizon wouldn't be involved; that'd be between you and Asurion (and your conscience). ;-)

    ...it'd also cost you $100 (last I checked).

    Yeah, I feel that, but the Cellular industry has fleeced me dry of any shred of conscience that I have toward them. Thnx for the input, Path
