    >>Do not recommend backup apps because it will change into a completely different version, the better once you have installed Android ICS, download it from the market. .
    >>Just do a backup of your contacts (if you do not want to lose and re-enter manually), if you sync your contacts with your gmail or google account is not required to do backup because google is responsible for restoring your contacts list.

To make the backup, with the phone on, press the POWER button until appears to turn off menu, select REBOOT and then select RECOVERY, the phone will reboot into Recovery Menu (remember to use this menu is Volume Up = Up, Volume down = down Call Button = Select or Enter, Power Button = Back), select "backup and restore" and then "backup" and wait to the backup is completed, once completed, select "reboot system now" to restart the phone. (the backup is saved in sdcard in a folder called "clockwork", don't delete this folder if you decide someday return you to your previous version)

    This has already been posted, and you are over complicating it, just download mike's zip and install from sd card, wipe data your done.

    Also mike does not permit reuploads, support the developer, he gets a little money for clicking his upload from ad.fly.

    After following this thread I'm stuck at LG startup logo. What should do?
    Repeating process doesn't help. Any ideas?

    Loaded IceCram Swift by miroslav, and it's all the same.
    By the way system partition is 234mb.
    Something is wrong cause got this problem with every newer rom, 2.3<=.

    And how much time i need to wait for Icecream to load after reboot?
    5-10-15 mins?

    Hi All,

    I have installed 9.0.0-preRC-GT540-MikeGspinski and everything works fine..
    But I have noticed that when we make or receive a call, we will be unable to hear unless we switch on the speaker button.
    Any idea on this ?
