    Anyone figured out a way to get back to GB yet? I googled some stuff but the last couple of posts I saw were from early July.

    I like ICS as a system, but its not as fast/responsive as GB was on our phones. Sure the stock launcher doesn't lag, and the improved virtual keyboard response is nice (probably multitouch related) but it just doesn't have that "iphone-fast" zip like it used to with menus, browser, apps, 3d gaming, etc.

    The GB and ICS bootloaders are different. It can't be done. Those who have tried have bricked their phones.

    Unless they unlock the bootloader so we can change kernels, no.
