    Hi Misfitofscience, How long was your phone "frozen" on "Android is updating" and "Starting applications"? Mine's been stuck on that screen for at least 30 minutes!

    Thanks.

    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
