    Hi, I'm on Vodafone UK with my Galaxy S2, and tomorrow ICS should be available to download via Kies.

    Are there any special preparations I should do before updating? i have already backed up all my pictures, videos, music, contacts etc. but I was thinking more apps that may interfere with the installation?

    Currently, i'm using LauncherPro as a custom homescreen launcher. Will I need to delete this, and maybe some other apps so that the update goes smoothly, or would that not really matter?

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Sounds like you've covered the bases. I'd close your launcher and go back to the stock one prior to the upgrade just to ensure no unwanted apps are running over the top of the stock interface. You should be able to set your launcher as default once more after upgrade is over, or any other that you wish. Apex launcher is a nice one for ICS only. Worth a look.
    Make sure your battery is topped up before you begin the upgrade process.
