    just upgraded to ICS via ATT. not OTA so it took about 2 hours but installed
    with no problems. took another hour to recreate my home pages.

    the onlt issue i found so far was that slider keyboard lighted keys do not
    light up (will go to ATT store to see if they can find setting)

    I also upgraded. Same lack of keybaord backlight. From a google search it looks like it is a somewhat common problem with ICS and there may be a simple fix if you root your phone.

    Still, I'll live with it. I have never had a smartphone without some annoying quirks.

    Possible fix here if you are rooted. I haven't tried it.

    I upgraded too and also lost the lighting on the physical keyboard. I did a full backup on Kies prior to the upgrade and am having trouble doing the restore. I keep getting errors when attempting it, even when trying to restore a single items such as contacts.

    I finally gave in, installed CWM recovery, and the fix I linked to in the previous post for the keyboard backlight issue. It worked.

    If you have encrypted your phone's /data partition or SD card, you need to decrypt both before CWM will work.

    Do you think the next update, or whatever they're calling it, will fix this?

    I seem to have had many similar issues.

    -Keyboard Light
    -Internet is super slow now
    -Battery life is terrible
    -No longer have a scrolling wallpaper, and no longer adjust to screen position

    I have done several things to fix. I constantly am clearing the ram, as it seems to run high. I have done a master reset. After which, many contacts upon restore became miss-matched. Some disappeared all together.

    My phone has not been rooted/unlocked/jailbroken, etc.

    Any suggestions?

    There were several issues with the ICS Glide update. Samsung pulled it from their servers a few days after it was released.

    How were you able to upgrade to the ICS? I go on the samsung website and each time shows that the ICS upgrade has been put on hold. I have bricked my phone in the past trying to upgrade before it went on hold. Please help! :)

    I used Kies to upgrade from the first AT&T ICS release to this second AT&T ICS release. Indeed, the keyboard backlight problem is gone without any hacks. Seems like the fast dormancy related kernel wakelock that was sucking up the battery life by keeping the phone awake is also gone.

    For some reason the update wouldn't download OTA. Software update always claimed by software was up to date.

    As far as I can tell, this ICS update is solid.

    Nothing else to report, so far.

    I know that not a features from ICS will be on all phones, but I have heard that I am at least supposed to get the unlock to camera function on my captivate glide. I cannot do that and have tried seeing if there is a setting d to change, but I haven't found anything. I also cannot create folders on my homepage or re-size widgets. I was just wondering what features I am supposed to have.

    Both are the same update. If you're planning to root go ahead and use the XDA procedure, otherwise save yourself a lot of steps and use Kies.
