    I finally figured out how to get the facial recognition to work and, so far, it seems to be working perfectly. To activate it, you first need to delete the stored security certificates.

    Oh, the threaded emails are pretty slick, too.

    The face unlock feature works really well, even better when you take a few mug shots under different lighting conditions.
    I have found that the GPS isn't working as well as it did, that may just be just coincidental

    Haven't had any reboots or loading screens of death since getting the update yesterday morning. I'm almost afraid to be optimistic. So far so good.

    I've had 2 reboots since updating, but both when watching a video. Idle, it seems fine, since the last reboot, I've gone a full day with no issues.

    When I went to bed last night I was at 11 hours checked this AM was at 8 hours. So there was a reboot overnight. I did do a cold/hard reset after installing .24.
    Could be a video thing I did play around with all the players trying to make sure they all worked. I going to avoid videos for a few days to see if that is the culprit.
    Thankfully since ICS release the only issues I have had are reboots while sleeping at around 72 hours and a rare SOD.

    Google Maps keeps crashing. When I hit the location button, it will pause, then throw me out. On the plus side Places doesn't crash Maps like it did under .21. Yea! :eviltongue:

    I've been feeling a little lost the past couple of days so I've been rebooting mine myself every few hours and walking away in disgust. :p

    Trying to relive those early days of ICS, huh!
    Guess the odd adage "You can never go back" doesn't apply.

    After a bit more extrensive testing, it is definitely more stable. I went the entire Champions League final without a reboot (nearly 3 hours), but when I went to use Youtube straight after, it rebooted. Pre the update, I would've had at least 2 in that time so it's def improved. I don't reckon it's rebooting whilst askleep either.

    Also no more screen activating when it's asleep either! :)
