Thanks, I got the manual update working. Helps if you follow the instructions and click the correct buttons.

Not sure if FF.18 is better than EL.29 yet, but will take the weekend and see how it goes.

Issues:

1 * my own wallpaper does not fit correctly anymore.

2 * USB mass storage.The USB device settings are no more on my phone that I can find. I run a linux laptop (ubuntu 12.04) so will have to see what is up with getting it to work.

Those are my only gripes.

 

Updated:

After using the phone with ICS, over the weekend, I decided to hard reset it to see if that helps the battery drain issue (make sure you backup settings and application login info first - doh!) ..

Wallpaper still zooms no matter what size I make it.

Still cannot get phone connected to my laptop (ubuntu 12.04) as "USB mass storage" device. Maybe some bright spark out there has some info I missed, though in a month I will be getting a MacBook so ....

Did the manual update...worked like a charm.

Does doing the manual update void your warrantee?

Nope, it doesn't. The manual update is the same software as the OTA update.

mapesy - is anyone going to keep a log of known issues with ICS update? Sure would be nice.

I am also wondering if anyone can tell me of a swype keyboard that has the numbers in the middle of the keyboard instead of the top line - I loved the GB swype keyboard and definitely miss it.

Haven't decided yet if there is more of a battery drain with ICS or not - on battery 5 hours and down to 52% with just talk (of course that was 72 minutes). I do have it on WiFi and auto notifications (but had that with GB).

Also noticed that you cannot tell how long a phone call was (I had to go to my account on line to see how many minutes used). There was a way on GB

But so far not "major awful issues."

I have a link to manually update your touch to official ICS without a computer. Who wants it?

I have installed ICS using the manual d/l method and everything seems to be working ok... with the exception of the LED notification for either gmail or the stock email. Any suggestions?
