    I think i was getting confused on different post..too tired. Ya to jump from one ics to another you must have a external sdcard. Fastbooting erases the cashe.

    well, I think I screwed the poochie...

    I flashed the 212 file, all went well, but when the phone rebooted, it organized the applications, then loaded to a screen with no home application (the setup wizard that I am used to seeing on first boot in GB was not there, nor any variant there of. I have a notification bar, and I can access parts of the phone from there (USB mode, but not settings to activate debugging... nor installed apps)

    Going to try a reboot...

    never mind, there was a settings icon at the top of the notification bar... going to mess a round a bit and see if I can trigger the setup apk...


    ***Update***
    30 seconds later...
    got the debug mode activated, so I was able to run ICS root, no errors.

    three reboots later, and the phone booted to a setup wizard...

    me like...
    now to do some configuring before heading to bed, hope my wife is happy tomorrow...

    total time (not including prep time of downloading all the files): 1hr 50mins
    final battery life: 40%



    Here is a screen shot from the install

    So, I did not say anything before now, because I thought it was a "feature" of ICS, but I am about to give the phone to my wife after spending 3 hours setting it up and adding and configuring apps, and the entire time, the "home" button did not work. It vibrates, but does nothing.

    I've read side threads on it and they recommend the following fixes (none were specifically for the droid 4)
    1. Reflash gingerbread stock, reroot, flash ICS again... (oh yeah, like that would work on the droid 4...)
    2. Perform a factory reset (holy screwed I am, I mean I guess I could, but then I found have to find time to set it up again without her seeing it and we will be at her grandmother's house in less than an hour...)
    3. Flash a GApps .zip seems to resolve it for most people who had that phone (do we even have a GApps flashable for ICS? This sounds like the last destructive option)

    Any thoughts? My wife will hand it back to me as it is and say h311 no


    ***update
    30 seconds later...
    I found a gaps download from the nightly cm9 unofficial thread in this forum, it is downloading now. Any thoughts on if I should flash it?

    Oh well, it is now or never, pulling in to the house...

    ***update again
    Actually I missed my opportunity, I downloaded the file to the internal storage and didn't realize until I tried to flash it. Still hoping for some input from your more experienced. Probably won't be for 30-45 minutes before I get another chance to pull the phone out where she can not see it.

    Why would you have to install GAPPS? Thats only for the CM9/Gummi/AOPK roms.

    I would first start with a factory reset since that's easy. If that doesn't work then you may have to reflash 212 from recovery (you can do this since 212 is updating over itself). If that doesn't work then start from the beginning (flash 219, 212 kernel, update to 212).

    I was reading on XDA that the native buttons can be disabled by changing some lines in the code. Maybe what happened when you flashed the update through recovery the settings didn't copy over correctly.

    Well reflashing 212 failed, it failed on "verifying current system" guess I'll have to factory reset and hope it works. Sucks as I do not have the time to reconfigure the phone for her. She has no idea how to do anything on her phone, and won't setup anything on her own. She had never even downloaded an app and has used android for 3.5 years now!

    Are you sure you are on 212 then? Check your system version under "about phone"

    The leaks should work going directly from 219 and it should be able to flash over itself. If you're getting a failure and because your home button is not working then something went wrong during the process so you may have to start over from the beginning.

    A factory data reset fixed the home button, although my wife is getting suspicious as I keep leaving the room for 1-2 minutes...



    Oh nice Google is putting the apps back for me at least! That never worked on my gingerbread Roms with my other phones.
