Loving Gummy ICS ROM
I took the ICS plunge with Gummy 0.9 and have flashed a few nightlies since then. There were some issues with lag initially, but they appear to be fixed. The ROM is snappy, stable, and slick - FULL of extras.
v1.0 was just released yesterday. I'd highly recommend it if you've been waiting until "it was safe to go in the water."
Everything is over at XDA:
[ROM][AOSP][4.0.4][CDMA] Gummy 1.0.0 - 04/12/12 - The Remodel! - xda-developers
Coming from Gingerbread, I followed the directions in the thread Guide: How to flash ICS
A few lessons I learned along the way:
- Flash both the ROM and gApps before rebooting (and you need flash gApps each time if flashing nightlies)
- Don't do a full data recovery from Titanium Backup- it will hose you browser and SMS. Instead, just select the specific apps (avoid SMS and browsers) that need data backed up.
- Apex Launcher (included in ROM) for ICS Rocks! Bye Bye Go Launcher (but you were great for G'bread). You can also save your Apex settings - handy if flashing nightlies.
Try it out. I feel like a have a new phone. I haven't tried other ICS ROMS, so can't compare. But, I've got no complaints - this might be my last ROM until I upgrade my Fassy at the end of the contract.

You guys are the best! Rockin' Gummy 1.0 on my Fassy and my Bionic. You need a Team donate button. There is just too damn many of you. With all the different builds. It'd be like buying a round at O'Harrahs on St Patty's day! Thanks for all your hard work, all of you.

Re: Loving Team Gummy's ICS ROMs!
I just wanted any others like me that were on the fence about trying ICS to know it it's for real on a Fassy. BTW, I personally haven't tried tinkering with any OC/UV settings. If you do, note their caution on the XDA OP:
YOU MUST UNCHECK ANY OVERCLOCK UNDERVOLT BOOT UP OPTIONS YOU HAVE SET BEFORE INSTALLING

Re: Loving Gummy ICS ROM
Any experience if that might help in recovering browser and SMS data correctly when going to ICS?

Re: Loving Gummy ICS ROM
If coming from Gingerbread, did you first install Build 2 and have the right files on your SD Card? It's also using a newer version of CWM (CWM4) than I had used before. I followed the instructions on the post below exactly and it worked for me:
Supa's Useless Information: How to flash ICS on the Samsung Fascinate!
There are a lot of little details, including choosing the PIT file to repartition. Also, with CWM4, you no longer do the three-finger boot to recovery. Instead, choose the recovery boot option from the power button menu.
