    Ok, I'm currently running Revo 6 with Siyah Kernel and fancy trying ICS and noticed that O2 seem to have an ICS update kicking about. Thing is I'm confused as to which one I need. Most places I've checked tell me to connect my S2 to Kies for the update, but Kies doesn't recognise my phone. Presumably because it's rooted??

    The CSC is: I9100XEUKD1. Does that mean I need the XEU version of ICS or will any do.

    Apologies if this has been asked before, but it comes across as an absolute minefield to me. :thinking:

    You are correct in saying that because you are rooted you cannot update via Kies.

    If you want to try a stock, official, ICS ROM then XEU, generic, for the UK, is fine.

    if you're running checkrom6/siyah and are about to update to a stock ICS firmware, you will notice a fair difference in battery life and performance (stock ICS being poorer).

    since you have CWM, make a nandroid backup and flash a custom rom which gets rid of all the guff that sammy has put into ICS. i recommend D4 rom, see here [ROM][4.0.4][AROMA][OTA Kitchen] D4 Rom v9.0 - D4 Theme Engine v4.0 [26/04/12] - xda-developers

    just download the d4 zip and gapps package, put them on your internal sdcard, and flash thru CWM recovery (do a full wipe first, dalvik/cache/data).

    Cheers mate. I installed AndyxRom last night, wasn't too impressed at first, especially when it automatically added every app I have to my home screens. :thinking: Once I got into it though I found it not too bad, that was until this morning though, when on a 10 mile run the music player was going mental and kept skipping tracks soon after they started. Also it used 80% battery in 90 minutes of running. Granted I was using the music player and Endomondo but 80%!! :mad: So I was just about to try Wanamlite. Might give D4 a go too.
