    Root and custom ROM. AT&T wants everyone on the same software version, so short of this, I'm afraid you're stuck with ICS like the rest of us.

    Stuck? Stuck? I wanted it, I desired it. And I got it. And I freaking loved it! But what you said, custom ROM, you don't need to root to get a custom ROM unless you're using ROM Manager.

    Had a feeling you'd say something like that, but evidenced by OP: there's at least two of us that are "stuck with" ICS. . Now that it's been out a while, a lot of the incompatibilities in apps have been worked out (Skype, Netflix [mostly], ServeStream, etc.) so it's not AS bad as it was.

    Well, hey, I am just an ICS/JB (HTC Inspire 4G/HTC Desire HD) Junkie! XD But yeah, it's easiest to root with a custom ROM, and there are a decent amount of GB ROMs for the Vivid, you just gotta look. A great place to start would be XDA.
