    So with 5.2 I can move apps to SD but will lose all my 3g/HSDPA data connection??

    Another thing I've noticed just today, none of my games are working?? Any ideas?

    All credit to the rom goes to adesirello on xda.

    Regardless on what rom you were on before, I'd recommend backup with Titanium / SMS Backup/Restore, then using CWM Recovery: full wipe, wipe cache, wipe dalvik, wipe battery stats, wipe cache, wipe dalvik, wipe battery stats then install. I'm assuming you are already rooted of course.

    Could somebody PM me a mirror for 5.2? To get swype, do I just install update 4.1 even though I'm currently on 5.1?

    I don't believe adesirello would permit me to link a mirror. People on xda have mirrors floating around. Check the thread.

    Regarding Swype, it's better to just download it from the market rather than install an old update.

    Alright just an update on v5.2. I finally got around to installing it and turns out Radio actually means FM Radio, not 3G etc... So my 3G works fine! But for some reason, the FM Radio doesn't work. I never use it anyway *shrug*

    I've not really been following this to be honest (busy at work at the moment) - is this looking something like a (relatively) stable ICS ROM?!?

    Yes, it's very stable - I only get about 1 crash per day and I've been running it for a couple of weeks now (although 5.0 was rubbish and I skipped it).

    5.2 is good!

    My galaxy s2 is arriving someday this week. I will be rooting it and installing this ROM straight away. Looks absolutely great and all the major kinks seem to have been ironed out. I was going to install CM7 but a stable ice cream sandwich ROM has been what I wanted all along!

    Sure is my good mate. There's a few kinks to work out still and it seems that different people have varying problems, but the majority of users are very happy with it. Try it and see if you're one of them!

    Also, v5.3 is out!!

    Changelog:
    - Softer and more stable
    - Added Swype (operating)
    - Added New Flash Player
    - Added New Maps 6.3.0 (Less battery consumption)
    - Added Video Editor
    - Fixed TTS (Text to Speech)
    - Fixed signal icons 3G, H, etc.
    - Added Launcher Trebuchet (New version)
    - Added Launcher Nova (New version)
    - Fixed Polaris Office
    - Fixed DSP Manager
    - Arrangements in the Framework and Settings ...
    - More ICS theme
    - More things ...

    It's working great for me! Only had time to flash and restore but seems great as usual! Also, sorry but I can't update the first post just now. Wedding is in 2 days and sooooo much to do!

    There's also a new kernel to use, LPH. Download links on the xda thread, as usual.

    AND: adesirello has said that a new version (probably v6.0) will be out next week, based on new leaked LPH rom. Can't wait!

    would'nt bother with v5.3 as it seems to have all the problems v5.1 had and more , gonna wait for v6.0 even though v5.2 is good for me theres no harm in taking a peek

    I never really had any troubles personally with v5.1 but this one does seem to have a couple more crashes than usual. I'll stick with it, but looking forward to v6.0!

    I've installed 5.2 as people have been badmouthing 5.1 and 5.3. However, my wi-fi is acting a little strange. I can detect signals but the "connect" option remains greyed out at the password screen. Anyone else having this problem? Any known work-arounds?

    EDIT: Solved the problem. For some reason I had to go into advanced options and tick the box about a WPS pin on the router.. never had to do that on my desire or laptop. Strange.

    I've found one consistent glitch where the phone crashes if the screen is locked with the LED torch switched on. Apart from that AndyX ROM 5.2 is as smooth as ice cream.

    Pics or it didn't happen! :)

    Belated congratulations, Kie. I'll be complaining to Royal Mail as my invitation obviously got lost in the post. :(

    Enjoy yourselves, and if I see you logged-in over the next 2wks I'll be banning your account until you're back home! :p

    Id suggest you start a new thread and this is about the new Andy X Rom based on ICS and I think your talking about the old version based on Gingerbread.

    Guys, sorry to tell you that Andy's ROM thread over on xda developers has been closed for repeated rules violations on posting material on the thread.

    Its not a surprise to me as the OP was warned repeatedly about some of the things he was doing.

    So, you may want to try another ROM while the OP attempts to get his thread reopened (which I'm not sure is possible).
