    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.

    If its a new phone be sure it's on 219 and not still 215. Otherwise the ICS OTA will fail.

    If you are on GB still and tried the OTA for ICS and had safestrap it will fail, but should just reboot to your GB.

    I believe you finished flashing 219 and the ICS kernel. Now you have a blank screen so press and hold volume up & down & power. Then go into recovery and flash the update.
