    Go to the Manage Apps menu setting. For each bloat ware you don't want, go into its settings, first uninstall updates (if applicable), then the button changes to "Disable". If you ever want them back (does anyone ever? Lol), go to the manage apps again, go to the "All" tab, and you will find them at the very bottom of the list.

    Awesome! I that's all I needed to know if it was there or not. I'm still waiting on ICS to arrive.

    I can access it via the play app, but trying to access via the browser on my phone gives a page not found error. Alternately, you can go to that link from your computer and have Google push it to your phone (which is what I did).
    Interesting. Trying to get to that link from my computer yields the same results as from the phone: Not Found and We're sorry, the requested URL was not found on this server.

    Hitting the system update before it's ready sends you to the back of the list.

    Again.

    It's a rollout. And rollouts happen in stages.

    Calm down.

    I *think* it only works if you previously had it installed on your device...I did and the link still works for me.

    Nope. Then again, I almost never am. But you're right: logging in at the computer, then retrying the link, brings up the Adobe Flash Player 11 page. Good catch!

    I just have to say that after using ics for a few days, I'm blown away. It's like I have a new phone again. The speed of phone was greatly improved. There are some changes I don't like (I preferred the old settings menu), but for the most part I'm happy, and impressed with how well the upgrade worked. I just wanted to show some love on here to reassure those who haven't gotten the update yet. Oh yea, as samurai has stated multiple times, it's a very good idea to get your pictures, music, etc off the sd card. It took about 20 min (for me) to get past that one step in the upgrade.

    Never heard that before...that sux! Why does it do that? It's like punishing people for being proactive in trying to get the update.

    Up and running on 246. Thanks to Hob and his support. Took me from 232 to a partial bricked phone and back to 246. Works great seems noticeably faster. Thanks again to Samuri

    Couple more observations:

    • The DLNA app under GB was part of Blur. The new equivalent is called My Music.
    • The News app was also part of Blur, and I don't see an equivalent in ICS. Guess I'll have to hunt for a new RSS client.
    • Tasker can no longer enable/disable GPS directly. It has to vector the request through Secure Settings. I have tested the new approach, and it works.
    • I don't know whether this is an ICS-specific question, because my newly-ordered dock/charger arrived a couple of days after ICS did, so I have no experience with the GB version of the docking software. Under ICS, docking the Bionic starts out working like the car dock, turning the display into landscape mode and offering a choice of bedside or office mode. Once the bedside mode is selected, though, the menu options allow for a 20- or 40-minute sleep timer, but there's no obvious way to select the media source from which to play for that length of time. I can queue up a directory on the DLNA server via My Music, then dock the device, then set the sleep time, but that seems like a rather clunky solution. Has anybody played with the bedside docking mode enough to be able to induct me into the inner circle of enlightenment? Also, does anybody know what the button at the bottom of the bedside display (the one with headphones on it) is supposed to do? It doesn't appear to toggle headphone mode, which is the only function I can think of that goes with the icon.
    • The car dock software doesn't always seem to pass the proper orientation information through to apps that are called from within it, so they sometimes come up facing sideways. I can't make it break reliably, though; if I come up with a way to do so that will probably also point up a useful avenue of inquiry for troubleshooting, and I'll keep the forum current on what I find.
