    Hi All.

    I just heard another rumor about
    ICS coming out tomorrow.
    I'm on vacation and can't be without my phone.
    How long will the update last?
    Can I postpone the installation if need be?

    Thanks

    Ah yeah, just saw the thread. Doubtful for sure...

    But to the OP, yes you can postpone the installation. It will keep asking you but you can keep hitting later. It will probably take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, give or take. Hope this answers your question, happy vacationing!

    Some say yes.... It will be .4.04 or 4.05 but others say no difference. Yet others say because of file size is just a gingerbread update. Yet others say we will be desired hd`d......

    Well, here's my opinion. I have not downloaded any leak....yet. If you really believe the OTA is coming soon (and I don't think it will be here for a few more months, if at all) then wait. Most people have had good success with the leak and likely it won't be much different if any at all than the fabled OTA.

    Since my cell phone is my only phone and I use it for business a LOT I refuse to take any chances with installing the leak, even though I know it would make my phone better.

    I agree. In fact, in a lot of cases, a leak that developers have tweaked have actually been better than the OTA releases. Like when the Thunderbolt got the rollout for Gingerbread and it was random reboot city! Myself and many others had rooted and went with the GB ROMs from Team BAMF and we never had those problems. OTAs can be nice but, a lot of these developers are way better than those who work for the manufacturers. Just my .02

    I installed the second leak and I'm loving it. I'm not taking the ota until i know more about it and what it contains. The fact that it may be half the size of the leaks makes me wonder what the difference is. I may not take it at all and just stick with the leak. I'm in a wait and see mode.

    On one hand, the leak works well according to many people. No major problems reported.

    On the other hand the only major noticeable change is folders on the desktops. And, gingerbread also works well.

    The only reason I use ROMs on my older droidx is to use ICS and hopefully very soon jb.

    I'm tired of Verizon repeatedly missing ICS deadlines. The leak works well. The only unknown item is how much work will be needed to move from the leak to the official ICS when and if it will be released.

    btw, I can understand your reluctant to use the leak being how important your phone is in your business life. you are not missing anything phenomenal by staying with gingerbread.

    There is NO WAY the Rezound won't get an official ICS update. Not once has a phone been OFFICIALLY promised a new OS but then ignored. Rumors don't count. It might not be for a few more months (I don't think it will be), but it will undoubtedly show up eventually. Emphasis on eventually.

    Personally I would just rather not take the risk of installing a leak and then being unable to get the OTA without going all out on my phone. Some may not care about this, but personally I would just rather have the official version. And like someone else said, I still have no problems with Gingerbread so I'm in no hurry to get rid of it.

    By being desired hd,d means that something was promised but not delivered. Now it's called being desired hd,d
