    From what I was told once you flash a ics img file it updates the main version and there is no going back it is a permanent update

    Not true. There are a couple ways to fix it. The one that is easiest IMHO is to get the RUU. Use the latest one that includes the OTA. Just plug your phone in and run it(after relocking the bootloader) and it restores your phone to out of the box condition. It's similar to using SDLite on Moto devices. Done it several times, works like a champ.

    Before trying an ICS ROM, I do a Nandroid backup.

    I try the ROM, it never works out because they all have limitations and are buggy, and so I RUU the phone back to stock, root it, install Amon Ra and then go and restore my backup. I can do all that and be back to my unlocked, rooted, debloated GB in about 20 minutes...

    Easiest way to fix this problem is to not use PH98IMG.zip. If you manually flash the kernel(boot.img) in fastboot, your mainver does NOT get updated. I haven't restored a single Nandroid or RUU'd since I got this phone and I've flip-flopped between GB and ICS especially in the early running. In any case and more on topic, when you switch between GB and ICS(even a backup) you always have to reflash your kernel....preferably to the one that belongs with your ROM.

    Hi, where can you find the RUU? I'd like to maintain this option as I've already upgraded to ICS and may want to try the offical release.

    I know this question sounds stupid, I'm a web developer but new to Android and I'm gettiong my feet wet. Still trying to understand all the jargon.

    Ok, hopefully you mean you want to try leaked ICS. The OTA hasn't come out yet and lord knows if you'll be allowed to upgrade to it without an S-Off magic trick.

    There are several mirrors but this is the best I can give you for downloading the latest leak
    [Exclusive Download] HTC Rezound Ice Cream Sandwich Build 3.14.605.5, Brings A Handful Of Fixes And New(er) Radios

    Feel free to ask questions, that's what we're here for.
