    Not installing for me. It hangs for hours with a blue Android robot and a yellow exclamation mark on screen.

    Do you have a Customer Recovery (ClockWorkMod etc) installed? If you do then you'll need to go back to Stock Recovery to install the update.

    Have a look here...

    You're welcome. Same here, no issues either. Seems to be running rather quickly with no lag, very nice update! :D
  6. Thanks Apter, I'd been checking with the orange helpers feed on twitter in the hope of finding out when the ICS update will arrive.

    Downloaded and working well, it's nice to catch up with all the other sesnsation owners on here, shame all the orange bloatware is still there :(

    Now downloaded without any issues. I agree that it seems to run faster, so far so good!

    There's a new option in ICS which allows you to "Disable" apps - including the rather annoying Orange "Bloatware". This will prevent the apps from running and from showing up in the menu.

    Settings > Apps > All > Choose an Orange Bloatware App (eg. The Sims 3) > Uninstall Updates > Disable

    All of your "Disabled" apps will appear at the bottom of the All Apps list, allowing you to enable them in the future should you wish to!

    Just an update on battery usage. I hammered the phone yesterday but using it "normally" today and battery life is certainly improved.

    Orange took their time but it was worth the wait

    Weird that some of you are only getting the update now? I'm UK, on Orange and have had the official ICS download for about a month and a bit now...:dong:

    Are you unbranded with a orange sim or is your phone direct from orange?

    There are still Orange apps, but at least they've removed the games which they expected us to pay

    I've just downloaded and installed ICS and initial impressions seem very favourable (even if the "Enter" key is on the opposite side now when I enter the screen unlock code).

    It seems less "laggy" than before and the font & layout gives it a fresh new look - in fact it's almost like having a brand new phone (should be really - it's my second replacement in 2 weeks due to the dreaded dust under the screen problems).

    I'm just going to show off to the wife as her Sensation is with T-Mobile and her update to ICS hasn't arrived yet!

    Not sure, How could I tell?

    Does your phone have things like orange Wednesday, orange maps etc, did you buy it from orange, will a different sim work in it.

    Ah in that case no it's not branded, although there is Orange plus on there, but no other branded apps.

    It's probably sim locked however.

    Excellent thanks. Now I can finally use Google maps from the map link in my calendar instead of the rubbish Orange maps it tries to load (but never works anyway).

    Phone definitely feels snappier too!

    I have downloaded the update and all seems well, however does anyone know how to change the widgets on the lock screen? Some things seem to have reverted back to defaults. Other than that the update looks good

    If I'm not mistaken they now reflect the same icons you have along your home page bottom row. Change an app icon on the bottom row and then go back and see.

    I also discovered that you can have more than one app in a given location. For example drag and drop another app icon to an existing one and they merge into a folder. I'm not doing that yet as it could get crowded, but a very nice touch none the less.
