    I'm all ready to do it but scared because I'm a computer dumbass. Maybe I should wait, is it for sure coming out tomorrow?

    Computerfixer, your step 12. From Step 4 files (Files extracted to C:\), double click on the "DroidRAZRUtility.bat" file. But the files you said to exrtact to C:\ aren't the ones you said to do that to in step 7. I'm confused!

    RDA990, Mattlgroff and Computerfixer412: Thank you so much for all the effort you put into all of this!!

    To all others still working on this: It often takes two attempts to get this right and have ICS up and running. Some have had to do a 'factory reset' after completion for the Home and Search keys to work properly, but this DOES work IF the directions are followed carefully.

    This isn't for the faint of heart or the impatient. I've got ICS up and running and MAN, DOES IT ROCK!!!! That said, I worked on it from about 10:30 p.m. until 2 a.m. the next morning non-stop. Multiple failures and bricked phone. Had to run Matt's 1.7 about 20 times and clear cache 30 times. Ended up doing full wipe and factory reset. FINALLY got it to load start to finish without erroring out. Then the next day, I noticed several bugs... home key wouldn't work and a couple other oddities. Sooo... I started over again and it took about 1.5 hours of factory reset, Matt's 1.7 multiple times, clear cache, 1.7, etc and finally got it to reload again. Everything seems right now and home key actually works like it is supposed to. The ONLY thing I can complain about so far, is that the VASTLY improved email client doesn't always want to push email. This issue seems to come and go and I haven't nailed down yet what the solution is... If you don't have to have it, I'd recommend waiting for the OTA. If you do it, be patient and be systematic...

    I tried two other methods to get ICS on my RAZR, with bad results. This is the only method that worked without any problems. It works great.

    If you can't follow computerfixer's very detailed and precise instructions, heres a walk through video:
    If you do exactly what he does on the video, you can't screw anything up.

    How do you get the widget names working correctly following the update? When I attempt to add a widget to the screen, a list of widgets come up, but the text isn't there unless you touch an entry lightly. Anyone else seen this? How do you fix?

    Same story man. I let my battery run too low and it failed on the first attempt. Bummer. I tried the "no factory cable required" charging thread to no avail, I guess it doesn't work if you have already started the upgrade. So I rummaged through my old cable selection to find some donor parts and ended up buying some $14 adapter at Radio Shack to make my own factory cable (I attached a pic because it's frickin sweet ;) ). This was a PITA and took me like 3 hours because of my crappy solder iron. But after I got it done and tested (I checked the connections like a dozen times and even checked first using my work blackberry, ssshhhh!) I re-did the steps above and I was running ICS within 10 minutes. Now MY wife is mad at me for being grumpy, so time to go make up ;)

    Thanks all, you rock!!

    P.S. This is my first android phone and I've had it for less than a month, if I can do this. Anyone can!

    You are right, that was from step 7. Thanks!

    I actually manned up and did it yesterday, and I agree, UI is nice. There was a guy on YouTube who had a video showing how to do it, and it turned out just fine. Couldn't be happier with it.
