    I've been running a rooted Rezound since about mid-January. Lately, been having some weird issues (notification tones keep randomizing, network just stops working entirely, etc), and I figured that since apparently there is an ICS update out now, I'd just start the whole thing over, wipe, restore, etc, and give rooting another shot.

    It's been a while since I've done this, and I spent the last day or so looking over other threads on here to get the latest info, but there's still some confusion. You guys have been great help so far, so IO figured I'd ask here before I go forward with my plans.

    I basically want to wipe the phone, restore to original, get the ICS update (if it's even out yet), and re-root so I can get rid of all those stock crapps (NFL app, Verizon, etc). Also, so I can restore Titanium, of course.

    My question, then, is ultimately how to go about this. Is there a really good step-by-step guide for clearing the existing rom, restoring to factory, getting the update, and then re-rooting? Is this even possible? Is this even advisable?

    I'm not really on a time-crunch here, so I'm willing to take my time and collect as much info on the process as possible. The phone still works, it's just kinda irritating right now from time to time.

    For the record, I do have Amon installed to the phone, and I'm running CleanROM GBE 1.6, according to my system information.

    Thanks again!

    Question, I notice at the end of that second section that the last command is "fastboot oem lock"

    I'm assuming that, should I plan on updating and then flashing to CleanROM ICS, that I don't need to actually do this re-lock step?

    correct,no need to relock if you plan to reflash some other rom.
