    So I'm trying to make sure that flashing this rom won't cause me any headaches. After reading the info here...

    http://rootzwiki.com/topic/21310-droidxbeta/

    It says that it is based off of 4.0.4

    Does that mean that you have to flash it over 4.0.4?

    But then I was thinking how can that be when the DX is not supposed to officially get a 4.0.4 upgrade?

    I guess I am just generally confused.

    I have no idea how I lived before having ics on my phone! The smoothness of it. The look and feel. Everything!

    Ya I saw your link for the aokp from on another thread. I wanna try it out but I want to get this rom all set up and backed up. So I can jump back if I have a problem.

    What is it that makes you like it better than other ics roms?

    It has some nice extra customizations in the rom control settings not available on the other ics roms.
    Don't get me wrong gummy rocks also.

    Well once I finish setting up everything to my liking I'll probably flash aopk. Just to check it out and then I'll decide which one I really like.

    Okay here is another question. I want to try to use the icons from a few of GO Launcher themes I used before. But I can't access the icons unless I run GO Launcher, which I really don't want to do.

    Any ideas?

    Yeah that's the way to do it try all the ics roms and decide for yourself which one fits you. On your icon question im not sure never really used any of themes but i thought there was an app you could use to pull icons from different launchers but i cant remember what it was called . Maybe someone else knows and will fill you in, not something i ever looked in to.

    I'll definitely be switching to AOKP today. Battery life on Gummy is sucking.

    You should probably run it a few days before judging battery life on any rom. Most of these ics roms are probably pretty much the same on battery life but yeah by all means check out aokp too. Ive ran roms which battery life wasn't good at first but after a few days improved.

    Okay. It just seemed such a drastic change. I was getting 2 days of charge on stock an Vortex Reloaded and now I've nearly gone down 20% in 3 hours. But I'll give it a couple more days.

    Yeah i forgot you came from vortex and i could see why your shocked lol...there's not a rom out there better on battery than vortex so don't expect to even come close to what you were getting on any of these ics roms. I don't worry much about battery life anymore i just accept what it is if i really like the rom. If battery life is top priority for you then yes vortex is the rom you want.

    n00b question - Where is the .sbf file for ICS Gummy? I downloaded a nightly of Gummy (6/14/2012) and unzipped it. I have two folders in the location I unzipped it, "META-INF" and "System". Neither folder, or any subfolders, have a .sbf file in them. How do I flash this with RSD lite? Am I missing something or too far out of the loop and using the wrong flash process?

    Note: I have flashed GB (.605) on my X a while ago, but would like to get to ICS and see if I can use this hardware for another few months before I upgrade. So i have some idea of what I am doing, but not a pro.

    Thanks for any help!

    There is no gummy sbf the nightly you downloaded is actually the ROM you should flash. Don't unzip flash it and make sure you also have ics gapps.

    Thanks for the reply. I figured out last night that I was thinking about how it worked incorrectly and found a walk through for flashing a Rom. I also flashed the gapps. So far is a great experience. But I did notice that the screen never times out and turns off, instead it stays on until I turn out off with the power button. I looked in the display settings but found nothing. I also liked in various other settings for gummy and asked launcher. Any ideas? Is there no screen timeout feature on this nightly?

    Thanks again for the help.
