    Flashbooting to ICS, RSD Lite troubles.

    Hello everybody, so I have downloaded the ICS OTA update and have been holding it off the quite a while. I read all the issues, and some things that bothered me was especially the inverted gmail.

    So I was thing I woulf jump ship tomorrow. (No more GB ;( ) I know theres many improvements that come with ICS. Just felt like it would be a mistake. ( I do love ICS and JB, I flash ICS roms, but sadly data
    ;(

    So should I? or will ICS and JB roms be working soon with data / camera? Also.. Factory Reset, how would I do that right, with apps, text ect saved?

    It depends on where you are, are currently running an ICS Rom? After an update to ICS your apps will be saved by your Google account and reloaded once ICS is updated to your device. I recommend downloading a text (SMS) backup app and saving all your SMS messages before performing a factory reset then re-loading the saved messages once you have updated. As a side to the text message, download a call log backup app and save your call log for restoring after ICS update in the same manner as saving the text messages mentioned above.

    The biggest problem I had with ICS was battery drain, which was being caused by the DRM Protected Content service. If you're rooted and don't mind living without Google Play Movies, you can freeze that service in TitBu and the battery life will improve dramatically.

    1. I think I flashed one, but I'm on the stock ROM currently, and disabled root using Voodoo Root Keeper.
    2. Alright, I just don't like restarting all my games. (ex: Factor reset) but if it means ICS will be better. ^.^
    3. Check & Check, I got SMS Backup & Restore.

    Ok, so I had to click the install later button (I had to use my device) is there a way to manually push it instead of waiting another day?

    Do I need Titanium Backup (Pro) to do that? And yeah.. don't really use Google Play besides Apps and sometimes Books.

    You don't need Titbu to "freeze" apps there's a native option with ics. Long press till you can add it to the home screen then move up to the more options select app info and press disable.
