    Just noticed that right when I get an email it doesn't just say 'New Mail' like in gingerbread, it says the name of who the email is from, helpful if you are on your phone when the email arrives.

    I also seem to be stuck in a reboot loot after getting that ota update..

    Can you boot into recovery? And did you make a backup of the stock ROM? If so, do that and flash it. Once the phone boots normally, check out trter's tool to unroot or check out the SuperUser SU app, which I've been told can unroot you. Once unrooted, then accept the OTA.

    Someone might be all like, "it doesn't look like you have that much screen time," but it should be taken into consideration that I am not using the extended battery, or even Rezound battery, I'm using the stock Thunderbolt one that came with the phone since I got it.

    As of the time of the screenshot, the battery is at 25%.
    WOW! The stock battery? Fabulous!

    So far I am really liking ICS. The smoothness of the graphics is a nice treat. I still can't seem to remove some of the bloat. Tune Wiki is still there as is VZ Navigator and Amazon Kindle.

    VZW only removed some of the bloatware. The apps you mentioned are still in ROM, so you can't remove them <edit>without rooting</edit>. You can, however disable them in ICS. Settings > Apps > select app > Disable. Same place the "Uninstall" button is for downloaded apps. If you've updated the app at all, you may have to uninstall the updates before you get the Disable button.

    Congrats. No such love for me, though. 100% to under 40% in 3 hours with fairly heavy usage on LTE.

    You probably have as much screen time as I did, but I'm not really doing anything with my LTE. It's more like a test; before ICS, LTE would drain my battery by 10% in half an hour, without actually using it; now, it hardly seems to take more battery than 3G.

    I downloaded the update last night. Still getting used to everything, but there are 2 things I don't like. 1. I don't like that the notification volume is linked to the ringer volume. I used to set all my sounds on silent except my ringer at night, but now I can't do that because if my ringer is on, so are my notifications (email and stuff). Anyone know a way around this? 2. I use my phone as my alarm clock and the desk clock option is different. Instead of giving you a dimming option, there is just a docking option, which is way different than the usual desk clock. Anyone know of a way to dim the desk clock? I'm not new to ICS (my tablet came with it), but these are features that I don't use on my tablet.

    I tried the revolutionary method described in his post to unroot and get s-on, it says LOCKED and security warning in pink now, as well as s-on under that, but it's still rooted as I can take screen shots still, and when I try to download the OTA it'll fail, or after it downloads it just restarts back into that white screen with the pink highlited text on it and either hboot or fastboot highlited.

    I followed the guide exactly as it said, I have no idea why it won't work.. gahh. I have endless reboots now, which I fixed by clicking "clear cache", but that option isn't on there anymore... clicking recovery just takes it to fast boot

    The volume link issue is known and a "feature" of ICS and Jelly Bean. It's that way on my DNA as well. I completely agree - it's ridiculous and I hate it. There was quite a bit of ing in the DNA forums as well. I'm not aware of a workaround.

    Spent a half-hour preparing the phone (disabled Google 2FA, backed-up the entire SD card to my computer, uninstalled/disabled security software). My Thunderbolt is now upstairs downloading over LTE, plugged in, and I have the kitchen timer set for 30 minutes. (Must..not...check...phone...every...2...minutes). I'll just sit here and sip on some tea and surf. No... really. Stop laughing.

    EDIT: Well, it was easier than I thought. Even kept my wallpaper, unlike previous updates. Got Google 2FA back, and re-installed my security software. I like the look and feel and the size of the icon captions, and also that the folders now show miniature icons of what's inside. Now I can try out Chrome, too.

    Only issue is likely to be the linked ringtone/notification volumes.

    I'm confused. Were you able to get into recovery and restore a back-up? Did you try trter's tool or use the revolutionary unroot method? Did you try downloading the SuperSU app and using it to unroot? If you're rooted and accept the OTA, you're going to keep having problems, but I'm sure you know that already.

    I don't have great suggestions for you for the notifications, but I do have a couple. 1) You could always change the notification sound to "silent" in the text, email, and whatever other app you want silenced at night. 2)You could figure out how to program Atooma or Tasker to do it for you. I don't know how to do it cause I haven't had any need to learn, but I know it can be done.

    As for the clock, can you set the screen to 0% brightness before going into clock mode? I don't know, cause my retired Bolt is still on GB until someone releases the RUU, and I always dimmed it the way you did.

    I knew I needed to unroot in order to get the OTA, I wasn't sure about recovering from a backup only, but I think one was made when I used the Revolutionary method to root my phone. So I just went to the revolutionary thread and did what they said in order to unroot my phone, it says "locked" and "s-on" after I finished that, but it still wouldn't update OTA. My root checker app said I was still rooted too. So I tried trter's all in one tool to unroot too, but that didn't work on the very last step (probably due to me trying the other method first). I have a super user app installed and managed to use that to stop the OTA from rebooting my phone, but I"m lost from here. No idea how to just get back to stock and be clean again after trying both of these methods and all kinds of junk probably being changed inside my phone. I just hope I didn't screw it up for good.. I am eligible to get a new phone, but I'm just waiting to switch to TMobile and get far away from Verizon in a few months.

    Yep, the OTA won't work on rooted Bolts. Here's a link to Santod's ROM based on the OTA: InfectedROM Android Community Forums

    You'll probably have to register to see the thread.

    You don't have to unroot if you haven't been able to yet. Just flash Santod's ROM which is just the OTA: InfectedROM Android Community Forums

    If you have any questions, let me know.

    I just posted a Tasker workaround in the DNA forums today. I uploaded the profiles I created a couple posts below that link. Let me know if it works.

    Same here. On mine, I dim the display as far as I can (I use a Widgetsoid widget to do this), then go to the desk clock. At some point, the desk clock will turn to the "screensaver" mode with the time, day/date, and the alarm icon on its own. I woke up in the middle of the night, and noticed that it was after midnight, but it was still showing yesterdays day/date. Not sure if it was doing this before, and the correct day/date was on the main clock widget this morning.

    I am also still looking into the ringer/notification link "feature." I've tried a couple of apps so far, and neither seem to work. I'll keep looking, but having to work around this is aggravating.
