    thanks for this update. is it possible to downgrade back to gingerbread? my gps signal keeps dropping out when the screen times out and is poor with the ics update. would updating to 214 help this at all? again, thanks for your great work!!

    No you cannot go back to Gingerbread. The bootloaders are different. Someone else posted in another part of the forum that they tried to go back to Gingerbread and they bricked their phone. :)

    Awesome, I'll keep this tucked away if I need it. Nice to know I can easily revert from the leaked kernel if there's ever any reason that is needed.

    Batman left verizon?
    Where did you go? And why? We need to know these things! :biggrin:
    I myself just learned about what big red is doing to the unlim. data plans. First thing I did, I went to the Sprint site to price plans and phones...:mad:

    All of the things you mentioned caused him to leave.

    I get as far as writing devtree and then the utility hangs. Any suggestions? I'm running a rooted gb currently btw.

    Welcome to the forums.

    What are you trying to do with the Utility?

    It is unbelievable how verizon is rewarding their old customers (the ones with the old unlim. data.) I've been with them since 2002!
    I still remember my first old windows phone -before the iphone was on the map- with the stylus and the "resistive?" screen and a whooping 128mb of ram.
    Battery life: 2hr on standby; 45min if you made a phone call; and as big as a brick.

    Option 1, sorry. The last time it seemed to hang i just unplugged my phone but did not shut down the utility. Upon returning to my computer the utility showed this prompt, awaiting device. I set to AP fastboot and plugged it back in and the utility continued. Now it's on the 3rd line of writing preinstall and has been doing so for going on 15 minutes.

    Finally made it through option 1. When I tried to boot the phone up I got the dead droid screen. Now when I try to boot it the dual core screen comes up and then it appears to turn back off. Anybody?

    Choosing Option 1 will not work if you are on GB now. Those are the Fastboot files for people that are on ICS and have problems, you can't just flash those onto any phone. I am not sure what you should do now, maybe use the 1.7 Utility for a stuck ICS and have the GB update on your SD card and install from there?

    You "MIGHT" be able to use the 1.6 Utility and option 1 to restore back to .181, but I do not know that for sure so I would not try it until someone else chimes in. I don't want you to mess your phone up anymore, I would recommend reading a bit more before trying stuff like this.

    I think your only option would be to use the 1.7 utility for fix a stuck ICS, that will trick your phone into thinking you are on the .181 boot.img and loader. From there you "MIGHT" be able to have the .181 update on your Ext-SD card and install it from there, or even if you have the ICS update .211 on your SD Card you "MIGHT" be able to load that one instead and be on stock ICS.

    Again might wait for someone else to chime in on this one, and as always READ READ READ then PROCEED. :)
