    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!

    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.

    Thank you for this thread. I had been trying to update for several days until I ran across this. It worked flawlessly the first time. Patients is needed for sure, I think this was the longest wait for an upgrade in a while.

    Thank you again, From Maui

    Stuck at "writing 'cdt.bin'"

    I am trying to use the Fastboot utility and continually get stuck at the "writing 'cdt.bin'" step.

    This is part of the Fastboot process described in the tutorial using the DroidRazrUtility.

    I am on a rooted Razr Maxx running 2.3.6. I have tried the manual update OTA and it fails. I believe I have kept all of the system apps so as not to have conflicts.

    The ICS file is in root of the sdcard, and the DroidRazrUtility is extracted and run from C:\

    Any advice on how to proceed would be appreciated.

    I am having the same problem. It will not go to the menu that allows me to reboot in recovery mode. Did you find a solution? Does anyone else have advice?

    Ok, lets start from scratch...what system version are you running...menu>setting>about phone. If your phone will not boot, then do you remember what system version you were on? Or, are you still on Gingerbread and did you flash one of the ICS leaks? If you flashed one of the ICS leaks which one?

    Thank you for your quick response. I am unsure which version it was running, and unable to boot phone to find out. However, I solved the original problem by releasing and repressing power button while still holding down both volume buttons. I went to recovery>from sd card>Blur)Version.6.12.181.XT912.Verizon.en.US(1).zip. (The (1) is because I ended up downloading it twice and put the second d/l'd version on sd).

    When I selected this, I get:

    --Install /sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    Question, did you put the .zip on the sd card or the external sd card? It has to be on the external sd card.

    There were two options. One began with MOT and the other was a letter drive. I put it on the letter drive.

    Sorry for not being for clear...the ICS update .zip, the file you put on your phone.
