    My guess about flash is that ICS supports it, so they want it to work.

    JB is another story, but ICS still does flash, for better or for worse.

    Dautley can clarify if I'm wrong but QA quality assurance is still a stage where they are looking for bugs and working them out, staging would be one step closer to an actual full scale release to customers.

    ^^^^Quality Assurance servers are mostly for internal testing, staging servers are usually the last stop before something goes live.

    Have any of the other leaks been found in a staging server before this one?

    I installed the .230 leak on my Droid Bionic phone. How do I upgrade to the new .244 build? I'm aware I may need to roll back to GB to do this, but I wasn't quite sure how to do that. The .230 build is very, very buggy and has significant lag. Not as bad as GB, but a lot more lag than what ICS should typically have.

    @dave1812 - Google Chrome for Android does not support Adobe Flash at all.

    /facepalm. Way to state the obvious, sport. FYI: Chrome sucks, and Flash works with several browsers such as Dolphin 8.5.1. sigh...

    I love your knowledge share. Important on so many levels. IJS. And don't mean to sound condescending in any way. :D

    BUMP! How do I get my Droid Bionic updated from the .230 build to the .244 build? If I need to go back to Gingerbread to do it then that's fine. I just need to know the easiest and quickest way to get the .244 build on my phone.

    You do not want to go past 232 on ICS. Anything higher than 232 and you can not go back to GB and the work around to get the OTA update is rather complicated from what I have seen some talk about.

    This thread should have what you need. I would suggest reading through it completely and NOT going beyond 6.7.232. Builds beyond that one have a different level of security and you can't go back to GB. I have been running .232 since it came out and it is a decent build.

    If there is something in the process you don't understand, let me know.

    HOB is much easier to install/use than it use to be. Just read everything and don't skip any steps, know there is a chance (a very small chance) something in the final OTA could cause this method to fail and if you flash higher than .232 you are off of Gingerbread forever. If you run into problems Samuri is usually quick to offer support, but if you don't follow directions, don't have the asked for logs on hand, or don't do exactly what he says do, just be prepared to have your ego bruised a little bit in the process. :smokingsomb:

    If .244 turns out to be soak, I'll be glad to post it and it can be flashed from your SD card with stock recovery from 100% stock .905 (root should be okay but no custom recovery)
    But it would be irresponsible to post it until then.

    Samuri is a good guy, made an amazing update program but may be a bit harsh sometimes. However, he did CLEARLY explain what to do & not skip any steps. I appreciate his work

    OK, so I'm missing something here. I found the post the other night on what I needed to download and so forth in order to do ICS. Now I can't find the thread. Could someone point me in the right direction please? I would much rather ask my questions on that thread than post them in the wrong one and have them be off topic. Thanks!!!
