    Default Re: New ICS Rumor

    I finally took the time, went ahead and rooted my Rezound yesterday. It wasnt scary, and tool I used pretty much lead me through the process step by step. I was being careful and exact and it took me like...I dunno 20 minutes. The creator of said tool said it could be done in five...and I dont doubt it.


    So now I have ICS. Its pretty and smooth. No problems.

    I get that some people dont feel comfortable rooting thier phones, but if the lack of ICS is giving you ANY pain. Just root it. Otherwise, dont sweat it. Itll show up eventualy.

    That being said, if your reading this...it pains you. Barring any work related barriers....root it. Yull feel like a more powerful geek after...I promise.

    I really want to root(and if this rumor is false I will), but I don't have time and am too dependent in my phone right now to risk anything. The first time I do anything like this I do a stupid amount of research to make sure I know exactly what I am doing. Being a junior engineering student that is looking for a coop and has an extra curricular that takes 40+ hours a week, I just don't have the time to look into it yet. After finals I will though and will be able to have ics one way or the other

    I'll believe ICS is coming out the day my phone receives the OTA for it.

    Unlocking should take about 10 minutes give or take. Installing a ROM, maybe another 10. Both guestimates depend on your ability to follow directions. Check out my guide in the Rooting section. I think it's fairly easy to follow.

    I already have and it more than likely with be the guide I use. It's not really the time it takes to do it, but rather the reading up on what I am actually doing that I need to do. I am new to android and Linux and I want to be prepared for Murphy's law if it were to rear its ugly head. I am an engineer so not understanding the why and how behind something does not sit well with me

    Rumor looking less likely. The Xoom was supposed to get ICS today according to the link in the first post but that didn't happen.

    It does seem odd that the date listed w/ the Xoom was the same day that the Razr lineup began to push out, yet another, maintenance OTA update via Big Red. If the Xoom was in a soak that ended on the 19th. That date scheduled for the OTA was subject to change, depending on the feedback from the testers. As you saw, the Xoom has already been through several release candidates, thus far. So it's quite possible they need to delay it a bit to fix something. They've been working on ICS for the Xoom for awhile, now. We may still see the Xoom release soon. Same scenario could happen to the Rez since it's only on release candidate 2. Even if the Xoom is not released before 5/9, it has no bearing on the Rez release. Although, it sure would've been nice to see the Xoom release on the date that was listed. No matter how it's sliced, don't believe it til you see it.

    I still say second half of the year, and wouldn't be surprised if it were 4th quarter.

    Oh Verizon..if you were an employee you would have been fired ten times over for never doing what you promise or when it is expected of you. At the same time I do truly wonder how much the software update release delays on VZW are actually the result of software issues rather than shady marketing practices to push one phone over the other. Conspiracies are awesome.

    I know I am new around here, but I have an opinion.

    yes, I know it is rare for someone on the internet to have one, but here goes.

    VZW is mostly responsible for the delays. So far I have yet to see a phone that VZW touches get updated in a timely fashion. Look at the GNex. Most of the other carriers that have an older version are plugging along, yet the newest is lagging. That should be telling enough.

    I just got my rezound today, still waiting on a battery so I havent even turned it on, but i would guess that you we will see ICS by the end of May. First week of June at the latest. That also depends on when they plan on launching the GSIII. Somewhere between that announcement and release, ICS will come out...

    If only there most consistent practice wasn't being inconsistent. I'll tell you one thing, they have mastered the art of building nervous tension among their customer base in the forums on the world wide weave.
