    Pretty sure there will be no going back an OS since you are on the official build you are stuck with it.

    ICS Blew it

    Too bad cause ICS sucks in my opinion. I mean it's all nice and shiny cause it's new but I don't care about the GUI or whatever. I care about usability and me not being able to use flash on it, or view embedded flash from websites ( it's crashing my browsers - all of them) is a downturn. I wish there could be a way to downgrade back to GB.

    Unfortunately that would not work since all it would do is reload what is now the OS on the phone at this point. So if we do a FDR it would reload ICS on the device

    I believe they were suggesting to Factory Reset your device so that a stock ICS initializes and then you set up the phone and install apps. I've seen a Factory Reset fix many issues on devices that have been updated. If you haven't Factory Reset since the ICS OTA then it may be a good time to give it a try. Otherwise...your phone, configured and loaded with apps.....did an in-place upgrade from OS 2.x to OS 4.x. I'd Factory Reset.

    I posted this same question 2 days after receiving the ICS OTA, and was told that there was no way to go back to GB, and it would possibly brick my phone if I tried :(
