    OK, so using the pinned How To thread as a guide, I've got the BobZ file, his GApps file, the Wipe file, the Cannibal recovery, and the flashImageGUI file on my SD Card.

    Oh, and do I need to be connected to the PC for any reason? I'm using Dropbox to get the files to my SD Card...

    Let me know what I've got wrong before I start.
    1) Install the FlashGUI app and select Recovery with the Cannibal file
    2) Boot via the vol-Down stuff
    3) Backup my current data

    Do I then use the Wipe.zip file instead of manually doing the wipes from the menus? Is the wipe file better than Drew's wipe in the recovery file?
    Does the wipe also do the formatting or do I have to do the Format option as well?

    Install the BobZ file
    Install the GApps file
    Reboot and wait a bit...
    I want to try this tonight or this weekend. Can anyone confirm if I've got everything? Don't want to kill my phone...

    Thanks a ton!

    If this is your first time rooting READ THE STICKIES can't go wrong following the instructions

    Edit: you forgot to ginger break your phone first and plus I highly recommend starting off with a iho rom first due to the fact the this rom is a wip as stated. My suggestion is mrg's MiRaGe, or LeslieAnn's harmonia 2.08 and this is with no disrespect to bobz cause he made one of the top iho roms .

    Its because if you lose signal it fails to connect when the signal comes back . There is no other fix at the moment.

    My phone is already rooted which is why none of the sticky posts actually seem to apply. Just trying to go from rooted with 2.2.2 to rooted with BobZ's ICS.

    Well then yes install GUI and for there you can flash drews touch recovery and for as doing the wipes I would recommend LeslieAnn pre rom wipe which wipes it three times then afterwards flash bobz ics and his gapps and enjoy also research the recommended oc for instance on tdm's aokp the recommended is 600/480 on interactiveX and I don't get rr hope this helps ....oh yeah partion you SD card first before installing any ics is highly recommended

    For anyone who has the TTS issue not working. I compared Bobs smaller gapps to the regular gapps ics and found that googletts.apk was missing. Flashed the regular gapps and all is good!!!

    Thanks

    Wow. I feel stupid. I completely missed the 7/3 build... here I was hoping for a new build and I missed it, by two weeks, and I check into AC every day.

    Late thanks for the newest build Bob.

    My mistake... Seems that the google tts will not let me set it, not sure why...

    Although now texts can be read to me, navigation still does not have TTS...

    *************************************************************************

    OK, did a FULL wipe and install... See that google TTS IS installed now. Will test later.

    Thanks

    Use ES File Explorer and move the app manually from /data/app to /system/app

    I'm on quattrimus but I had a similar issue to this with Facebook. Try forcing gpu rendering under developer options... Might not work but it did for me.

    I'm having this problem as well. Was having it with browser, facebook, pulse, email. It was not consistant though. I did a fresh wipe and reload flashing the ROM, Bobz gapps and amphetamines all at once. Everything but Facebook is working for now. This is the most stable it has been for me so far. I also did the GPU force and no overclock. I hope it sticks.

    I don't know how helpful this will be, but I've only had one consistent fix (for myself) on ICS ROMs, dealing with Facebook. I have a TB backup of Facebook from when I was running IHO-BACKside. After flashing an ICS ROM and installing Facebook via the Play Store, I restore the Facebook app (app only) from TB and it works, for some reason. Again, this only works for me, but it may help others.
