    I'd move to it tbh. ICS will only get better. GB is dying.

    I went for it, after reading complaints about battery life etc I can honestly say it is much better than GB performance AND battery wise. I could get 3.4-3.6k on quad on 2.3.6 now getting 4.1-4.3k on quadrant 4.0.3, battery life is better and overall better in general. On browsermark i'm getting 100k+ which is pretty much in terms of ipad 3 and transformer prime territory! (108-112k) Nenamark still getting 60fps solid as its capped to 60.

    and my new ipad finally arrived yesterday :O, but don't worry guys. Android > iOS

    If you end up not liking that try http://rootzwiki.com/topic/15793-aospliquidsmooth-ics-v13-rom04212012/

    Lightweight, fast/responsive, and just plain works without any bugs.


    And the toolkit works great, just make sure to follow the instructions and itll b good to go.

    Thinking about wiping my DInc, and loading ICS on it. I'm looking forward to the Pebble release, and it needs higher than the 2.2 I'm running heheh, plus I'm having the "Application memory low" error, and it's bugging the crap outta me. Anyone got a good link?

    That ended up short lived for DD. The rom link was dead. Hooked him up with the 4/25 BAMF Paradigm build. I was going to have him try out Liquid but BAMF ICS has been solid on my Rezound so figured have him give it a shot.

    EDIT:

    That's interesting Ahhzz. I can take a look for some ICS DInc if you want?

    If you've got a sec, and don't mind, absolutely! I'm already pulling .apk's off the main memory to reload from SD when I get it all laid out, and I'm having a bit of a pain getting a good line on a ROM for ICS :(

    Yup not a problem man. Another way to backup your apps. Try my backup root. I started using it not long ago, really is pretty smooth and decently fast.

    I've actually got Titanium, that I like, but I've not had to recover yet, so we'll have to see heheh.

    One thing I like about Titanium, is built in DropBox support, so I can push all my backups online as I need it...

    If the SGS3 looks like this I'm getting one... in black obviously, white phones are for fags.

    funk Samsung. I can't stand them with a passion. First ever thing I got was a cell phone by Samsung and its total crap. good thing I never wasted cash on something more pricey like a tv or pc screen. Never again will I own one

    Samsung are one of the best brands... Many years ago they weren't amazing, but now they are.

    Can I afford Samsung stuff? Odds are not, doesn't change the fact I love their products. Pertaining to this thread, I always wanted a Gnex but lovin' the Rezound ALOT! Ever since we got ICS with Sense that can be desensed .... MMMmmmmm.... Practically is a Gnex but with a better camera, but not quite as good battery. Just waiting for kernel source and battery life will get much better.

    this. my blu ray player, HDTV and phone are all samsung, and they're all top of the line hardware.

    There's too much to read. :laugh: I've read some but I still don't really know how to begin. :laugh:

    All I was able to do right now was go from 2.3.3 to 2.3.6 using Kies. Now what do I do for ICS?
