    Absolutely not. Any custom ROM cannot be updated by an OTA update. It will fail.

    It's technically the same thing, so no, that would fail as well. You have to be 100% stock EL29 (only being rooted is okay) in order to install the official ICS update, either manually or via OTA.

    However, you can flash the FF18 rooted ICS firmware using sfhub's Odin One-Click, and using the "Preserve User Data" version will keep your data.

    Here it is if you want to go that route.

    Hi all,I hope some one can help me on this. I bought my s2 used some months ago and discovered I have EL13, rooted, stock recovery. I'm guessing I need to flash op's el29. My question is if I can just load the flash zip to the root of my sd card and use stock recovery to flash it or do i need to do all the steps? Do I have to wipe or anything?

    It works. You need to hold them down for a couple seconds until you hear the camera shutter sound.

    You'd need to run the EL29 Odin One-Click first, then you can manually install the ICS update from stock recovery.

    It works, you just have to hold it a little bit longer.

    EDIT: I'm SLOW on the draw. LoL!

    I used to be able to put my finger on the notification bar and see the date. I used to do that a lot. Not pull it down just hover. Now when you do that nothing happens.

    Me too.

    So may great nooks and crannies the phone had are either gone now or totally screwed up.

    The worst part is that you have to choose between Touch Wiz or Pure ICS and if you prefer Touch Wiz like I do, you lose most of the ICS features.

    I can't live without the unread text, email and phone count, so I stick with Touch Wiz for that alone. Can't believe pure ICS doesn't have that.

    OMG, you know what is a total miss?. When you get an email it shows an image in the notification bar that is usually blank. Why not do this instead for ppl who send you text messages? That is such a missed opportunity.

    I can't believe how "un-polished" thus is. Also when you get an email notification and clock on it, it doesn't go to the email, I think it just goes to what you had open last, if you have more than one account you have to go looking for the email. And I used to love being able to hit the menu button in the browser and go right to the address bar. Now you have to manually scroll all the way up. As I predicted, I am underwhelmed by this update.

    I installed the manual update. Is there any way to create folders like with stock ICS? (My dh has a Galaxy Nexus and I love that you can create folders of apps.)

    Firstly, thanks for your efforts at helping people with their questions...it helps greatly.

    My question is this; if someone (i.e. ME!) doesn't have the patience to wait for the OTA notification and wants to manually do the update...is there any difference with what the manual update installs on the phone as opposed to what the OTA update installs on the phone?

    Basically...will it still be ICS in all its glory irregardless of the method of install??

    I had a great experience upgrading and the new OS is fantastic. Make sure to learn about Home screen folders. It's a game changer.

    Don't change the name to update.zip. Keep the name you had when you downloaded, copy the file to the root of your SD card and it will work. It did for me.

    Yes, just drop the app on one of the screens. Then take the second or more apps and drop it on top of the first app you put on the screen. It automatically makes the folder and after you open it you can change the name of the folder also. Great stuff.

    Hate asking - but I've been searching a while - and can't find the answer.

    I'm running Caulkulin's 3.0 ROM - and want to go to ICS. What are my least risky steps?

    Can I Just wipe all and flash Phantom's FF18 ROM now?

    Or do I have to go back to EL29 and flash something else...?

    What FF18 ROM are people recommending?

    It's the exact same file so no difference.

    This is how I got my phone to do the manual update to ICS. I tried it with renaming it to update.zip and it would just hang. After leaving it named the way it was downloaded, it worked flawlessly. Oh, and I'm sure it's been stated before, but if you are capable of using a file manager on your phone, then there is no need to hook it up to a computer. I used Es, but that's my preference.
