Like many others I've been waiting for one of these for many, many weeks (ever since my good friend was giving me crap about how good his Nexus is). And of course, all modification is done at your own risk.
    I don't think he was that bothered by what you said. I think he was more trying to make the point that anyone can run ICS because he, the person who brought us the first leaks, made it possible for everyone. Btw, how is that working out for you?

    Some minor neat improvements. Overall Im underwhelmed. Its slower than before and Ive now lost root upon the install.

    Another neg is the power band used to scroll now its double wide.

    Its a big meh. If anyone has a link on how to (re) root ics let me know plz. Its ok. Do it if you want. If you dont you're not missing out on much.

    So perhaps somewhat foolishly, I flashed 1.3 of this mod a little while ago without realizing it would remove CWM. I understand that the process of restoring CWM/a previous ROM would involve Odin, but i'm unsure of exactly how to do this. I'm not asking for a step by step here, but if anyone could point me in the right direction, i'd appreciate it .

    Well, 1.3 of this ROM is based on the FB21 build, so you could go here xda-developers - View Single Post - [KERNEL/RECOVERY][ICS] Rogue *Stock FB27* (Updated 3/5/12) download download the FB21rev2 TAR and flash it in Odin to get a CWM kernel back. Then you could get where you want to go from recovery. Keep in mind however that flashing kernels not signed by Samsung using Odin will increase your flash count and cause the yellow triangle on the boot screen. To avoid this, you can use sfhub's autoroot tool ([ROOT][NCIQ][EG30/EG31/EK02] Auto root your existing stock ROM (w/o ODIN/ROM Flash) - xda-developers) to install the FB21rev2 kernel or use Mobile Odin. Neither of these two kernel flashing methods have the two minor side effects.

    OR

    You could start over by going back to rooted EL29 using sfhub's Odin One-Click ([ODIN][TAR] SPH-D710.EL29_CL852097 (EL29 Modem/Kernel/ROM - Full Restore - Rooted) - xda-developers), flash the EL29 kernel with CWM then go from there.

    JayWill,

    excellent instructions! Thanks so much for the info. I assume option 2 would simply restore the device to a stock state?

    edit: I clicked the link and answered that question for myself. Thanks again!

    Yes it will restore you to a stock ROM with root, but also with stock recovery. You can then use sfhub's autoroot tool (linked within that thread) to install the EL29+CWM kernel and you're all set to go anywhere you want from there.

    Calkulin has FC06....I think samsung is giving us nightlies....this is crazy....it was just built today. I feel bad for the themers and developers, they must really be getting annoyed by now. Even most users can't keep up.

    I get the feeling Sprint is testing these builds on the fly, so Samsung is sending the TARs over for each build, and that's where the leaks are happening.

    Any body willing to help a newborn would greatly be appreciated. The problem I have is I wanted to try out the new Venom 4.0.3 ice rom on my epic 4g touch but wanted to go back to my previous rom after the test drive. So just like had done when flashing the ice rom, I used rom manager to restore a backup rom. In doing so the screen went black and only a blue light is on. I have tried the hold up volume button and power button to get to recovery with no results. I have Aldo tried the OTG reset plug in hopes to get it to go to a Odin screen with no luck. Only a blue light. Is this phone toast or can it be fixed.

    I hate to be the one to say it but I think your phone is toast. It sounds like you know what you are doing and have already gone through the trouble shooting steps I would recommend. Maybe just throw it on a charger and let it sit for a few hours then try again.

    For other readers, please I'm begging you DO NOT use rom manager no matter what anyone says. We will make a thread/announcement when it is fully functioning. And, honestly that might never happen. Just learn to use the recovery not rom manager or any app associated.

    I think it would probably be a good idea to get a ROM Manager warning post up. Too many people are used to using it and combined with these ICS leaks we're just seeing too many bricks.

    I'll try to get guide on how to work with these ICS leaks and the appropriate warnings tonight or tomorrow.

    Also that cm9 needs to be flashed from EL26 with clockworkmod and not rogue or anything else.

    Yeah I'll include a section on CM9. I haven't flashed it personally, but I've also read up on the process and the cases where people have bricked their phones.

    For me, I've seen 3 common variables related to these "blue light specials" ...

    1) ROM Manager / Temp Recovery
    2) Touch Recovery
    3) CM9

    And to a lesser extent, but possibly still related, any ICS Kernel + CWM repack. I've personally wiped and flashed an ICS ROM from a ICS Kernel + CWM repack twice now, but I would probably put this into the "risky" camp. My guide will focus on flashing anything ICS related from a GB Kernel + CWM repack or in Odin.

    Let me know if you can think of anything else I may not have touched on dtm. Thanks man.

    I am in the exact same boat. I have flashed several things from ICS repacked kernels with no issues. But I have not even attempted cm9 nor do I intend to till there is a more reliable way. The only thing I would add, is when returning to EL29 from any ICS rom, Odin the package that wipes completely and start from the beginning. Do not restore a gb nandroid back up while on ICS only restore it once you have returned to gb.

    Anyone know how to return to stock from ice cream sandwich? I downloaded it earlier today but I dont like it. It doesn't have all the features and widgets I like. For example, it doesntt have swype which I adore. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Just odin the EL29 package, [ODIN][TAR] SPH-D710.EL29_CL852097 (EL29 Modem/Kernel/ROM - Full Restore - Rooted) - xda-developers After that use the auto-root(stuck at the top of this section) and install a kernel with a custom recovery then restore your backup.

    This will work even if I never updated to the el29 update? the way I rooted was using auto root. then I flashed the blended ics rom. Forgive my ignorance. This is the first time I have ever rooted and flashed. Oh on qbking77's review on YouTube, he says that the rom comes with custom recovery in case you want to go back to gingerbread.

    Yes, it'll work. And from what I've seen don't ever use the custom recovery on ics to try to flash or do anything. It's caused a lot of hard bricks for people and isn't worth the risk.

    If swipe is your biggest deal breaker you should try TouchPal keyboard in the Market (Play Store), I was big on swipe until I found TouchPal, now its my favorit. Works well with ICS.

    Is not just swype. The browsers (stock, and dolphin) do not run as smooth as they do with stock gingerbread. I'll just wait for the official ice cram sandwich release.

    Used ODIN-OC to go to stock FC15 + Root yesterday. Lovin' it since I have the mobile data off... but when it was on that phone heats up quick! Hope that it doesn't overheat! Definitely IMO daily driver status.

    Link to ROM:
    [ODIN][TAR] SPH-D710.FC15_CL256308 (FC15 Modem/Kernel/ROM - Full Restore - Rooted) - xda-developers

    BIG thanks to SFHub for the post and all those who got the leaks this accessible to us!
