1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Will flashing a new ROM have a negative effect on ICS?

    As far as we know right now it probably will not. What will be a problem is deleting bloatware and blur or installing one of the leaked OTA updates. It is out understanding that the updates that will lead you eventually to ICS will look for the stock apps to be present and the stock kernel and baseband.

    So, once you are rooted install the official Bionic Bootstrap app from the market and use it to install Clockwork Recovery. Then without changing a single thing, reboot into CWR and make a "virgin" backup. Keep that file safe - put it on the a computer and keep a copy on your sdcard. That backup will let you return the phone to stock when the updates start hitting the phones.

    Good luck.

    What if we are just stock rooted with the original stock kernel and radio...we can still get ota updates right? We might just lose root right?
