    This is assuming you're still rooted.

    1. Open up the Safestrap app (Install it again if you uninstalled it).
    2. Click the "uninstall" button on it if its not already uninstalled.
    3. Uninstall the Safestrap app now.
    4. Reboot.
    5. Open rootkeeper.
    6. Click "Protect Root" button.
    7. Click "Temp. un-root" button.
    8. Follow guide.

    Please charge phone up to 100% and backup any apps and important information, Internal SD card also. Don't be surprised if you need to use Utility since you had safestrap installed, but follow directions and you will be fine.

    After the server kept getting penetrated by bots, I've blocked many IP's, if for some reason your IP was blocked use one of the MIRROR links to download the files.

    I have also added a Torrent that i'll be seeding with 45mbps speed so that's the fastest way you'll get the files if you prefer that way.

    Thanks for all the work you guys put into this. I was really paranoid at first about doing this, but I just followed W0017roid's video on YT, which is mostly based on this thread, and I've got ICS up and running like a champ. Got tired of being BSed around by Verizon and decided to take matters into my own hands.

    Transferring File to External SD Card

    RDA writes: "2. Place the file downloaded in step one into the ROOT of your EXTERNAL SD card. (DO NOT UNZIP THE FILE)"
    I am currently transferring that file into what is called the 'download folder' located on the External SD card. Is that an okay place to store it? I don't understand the particulars of what it means to place the file 'into the ROOT of the external SD card. Some guidance here before I take the big leap and attempt to update to ICS. Thanks.

    Basically, the "root" of your SD card is basically the core of the card. Don't put it in any folders. When you put the card into your computer, and you go into My Computer and double click your card, that's the root. Don't click into any folders, just drop it right on there, if that makes any sense.

    Almost... It's 'me' not you. I just 'moved' the file out of the download folder located on the SD card. It now shows up looking like: Blur_Version....on.en.US.zip. There is a little Android icon located just before the Blur part. This file shows that it contains 362542 KB. Repeat: It is not located in any folder. What I did was transfer this file from the PC to Dropbox. Then opened up the MAXX and opened up Dropbox. I then moved the file to the SD card first placing in the 'Download Folder'. Hope I am making sense. Thanks.
