    Downloaded to my stock D4 about 2 hours ago, PST. All appears well. Interesting tweeks to the system. New ringtones. Almost like getting a new phone. Going to try the camera as they claim ICS improves it?

    This patch is downright traumatic for some phones. Once you get the patch, and it installs successfully, I recommend leaving your phone on a charger for a few hours and just let it work itself out. I left mine alone overnight after the patch. Thing drained from 60% battery to "dying in the middle of a phone call while sitting on a charger" after the update. Very brutal, and my apps were wonky as all get out afterwards. One night left alone on a charger and everything was right as rain again.

    Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper also worked great...although it had to freeze and force-reboot my phone to reassert root. It was odd....

    You guys should do a factory data reset as well. I fastbooted ICS thursday night and got very poor battery life all day friday. So i did a factory data reset last night and it is definitely much improved today

    Yeah. But I read about one of the option something about killing all apps right away after used that it can cause problems. I haven't tried it, but i might. My battery life is so bad. The only thing that is running in my background is the GSam battery monitor. I might have to uninstall that as well. Had my phone on locked, batt drained about 30% doing nothing. Geez. Also, i turned off my animations, apparently, 72% of my batt usage is from display. I don't know if that would help, but trying couldn't hurt. I have my brightness all the way on low as well.

    I might try factory reset as well. Time to back up my files.

    Right, on the soak test motorola specifically said to wait a while for the phone basically to catch up with syncing etc. Battery life can be very bad in this initial period.

    Sometimes doing a factory reset will merely cause all of this work to be be restarted, delaying the better performance. But certainly after one or two days, if things persist, doing a factory reset might help.

    Mine was stuck on that screen for over 90 minutes, so I soft booted it. It came back up with ICS, but some things didn't work: Facebook app, sound and other settings would crash, etc. I wound up plugging my phone USB into my computer, backing up internal and external storage, shutting down, removing SD card, and performing a factory default reset. Success!

    I spent several hours yesterday reinstalling apps and app backups from my SD card, as the Google Play Store no longer does that automatically for you. But now it is indeed like having a brand new phone. I was dismayed that they moved the apps button to the bottom center of the screen after having moved it to the right in GB. At least now, you can group icons together in folders on the desktop, giving you tons of space! FB is now a stock app. I'm having a little bit of trouble with Handcent SMS not showing contact photos, but I'm sure they'll fix that bug.

    So, in short, I should have done like I always wind up doing anyway: backup internal and external storage and do a factory default reset. It's a pain, but ICS seems pretty good so far! dancedroid

    What, pray tell, does "ICS" stand for? Yesterday I got the update notice and selected the option to put it off. Today I got it so I let it do its thing. Took about an hour. At the end it went through 87 (as I recall) apps updating them. My guess is this is "ICS" and is a newer version of the Android operating system. The update took my battery from 90% to 50% (there was no warning, that I saw, to plug the D4 into the charger).

    So, what is ICS and what can I expect from it?

    ICS - Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0

    Google names each version beyond just a number.

    Ics is ice cream sandwich and it is an update to the android os. You should expect to see less lag, more stable os and signal as well as improvments in battery life
