    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.

    when i do recovery from the menu it just brings up the duel core thing and then goes to a green droid with a spinning circle in the middle and just stays there

    it got to the end of the bar and nothing happens

    now it gives me a dead droid with a red triangle

    and i think my phone is going to die soon. and i know if that happens im ****ed

    Hold power and volume Up & Down to go into recovery and flash the update, you're almost there.
