    @bigred8380 honestly if you are new to any of this I'd wait a bit. You get the file, put on SD card, go into stock recovery on phone...flash update. Then things get a bit convoluted regarding the update. We don't know yet if it's a point of no return or not.

    updates from Moto/VZW are done through the stock recovery. IIRC you hold the volume +&- buttons as you press the power button to boot to stock recovery.

    As far as doing it "safely" there really isn't a way to do that. Once you flash this you will be stuck on this build, presumably until the next leak/update comes out. Be very careful with this, there are people who really screwed up their RAZRs by flashing the leaked build and then tried to flash back to GB.

    Fact is, we just don't know enough about whats going on right now. Give the devs some time to see what they can come up with to bake into their custom roms. Hopefully this will allow them to get all the little bugs worked out of ICS.

    I would put money on the fact that someone will have a fully functional custom ICS rom before we see anything "official" from Moto or VZW.

    Great to finally hear some good news in relation to my cell phone after all this information regarding our plans. Though I've manually installed updates plenty of times before, I'll hold off until we get a more official build at least.

    I am getting mixed messages regarding whether it can be done with or without root.

    You HAVE to have a fully stock Rom on there though.
    Bloatware and everything for this to work.

    Flash at your own risk too.

    NOTE2: you can however use Pete's Root Tools to unroot the phone.

    @Jayman and @Nobreak- thx for the heads up! I've done this stuff on PSP's, just not my phone. I will deffo reads some of the tutolials and wait on conformation that we can get back to .905 if something goes astray.

    So let me get this straight. If I flash this there is no more safestrap, no more fxz'n no nandroiding, notta ziltch, im stuck with this ROM?

    I was flashing ICS custom rom builds - many of them, and a slew of problems with them. Radios not working, data not working, camera not working, bug after bug after bug. I am currently on stock GB rooted and EVERYTHING works.

    You guys who are taking the plunge with no life raft are crazy!!! What if there are radio issues, data issues, etc. What is your plan then?

    I think its best to wait for a scene release until the kinks are working out, wouldn't you agree? Or am I misisng something here?
