    You have to do each in order right? I am still on 200. Looks like I have plenty work to do..

    There should be a disclaimer at the top of this thread.

    ** WARNING: extreme nail biting ahead.

    I love having the ability to muck about with my phone like this, but man... I sure is anxious when you dont have full access to your bootloader.

    Not sure.. Step 1 has you flash GB, and then fix the kernel, and install ics. Seems like that process should work from any starting point.

    Dont depend on my opinion. I'm not certain.

    Once you switch from GB to ICS, you can't go back. But my understanding is that you can hop around any of the ICS leaks from any other one (200 to 211 to 208 to 206 if you want).

    Step 1 WILL come up with errors - just make sure that the only errors you get are of this variety:

    FAILED (remote: ), and "writing 'cdrom' ... INFOPreflash validation failure".

    If you see other errors, take note of them in case they caused a problem and post them on the boards. That's how I figured out that two of my .img files were corrupt.

    Thanks. It looks like my question is a common one. It probably should be noted in any post with upgrade instructions. I think this gets asked a lot be cause I do recall reading in the past you must install the leaks in order.

    If you are still flashing the GB files try to grab a screen shot with the errors. This might help some others to know what to expect as normal errors. Just click the window and expand it. Hold down the alt key and do your screen shot. On my dell laptop I have to press the function key and F11. Then open paint or picture manager or something similar. Click paste, save and post here. I should have thought of that when I did the jump last night. The webtop part takes the longest, it's the biggest image.

    That's not a bad idea. Having run into so many issues, I specifically went through the batch file to look for errors. The only ones I recall seeing are the ones that say "INFOPreflash validation failure". I think I had 2 or 3, but I can't be sure. I just don't remember seeing any other types of errors when it finally worked.

    well, made it through, just finished reconfiguring my phone after the leak install.

    I went from 206 to 211 without a problem.

    All is well thus far.

    I didn't see anything mentioning but I need to clarify; Will these instructions work for 2.3.6 to 211?

    Yes, you can go directly to 211.

    You can use rootkeeper or use the exploit, they both work.

    I suggest that you still fastboot 219 so you have a clean slate to start the upgrade process from.
