    Also I've never rooted a phone and have a Galaxy S (not S2). ICS can go on this? (Not officailly I know but with rooting?) Bit nervous about doing it TBH.

    Cheers

    I installed ICS on my Galaxy S (see my previous post ITT).

    You will need to root your phone, install Clockwork ROM manager, copy the ICS ROM to your phone then use Clockwork ROM manager to install ICS. If the upgrade goes pear-shaped, boot into recovery mode and install ICS from your SD card. If your worried about bricking your phone just wait until the official ROM is released (assuming it is going to be officially released.)

    XDA developers website will have all the answers you need. E.g how to root, how to use Clockwork ROM etc.
    From what I've read, there are no plans to release ICS on the SGS. It seems that once the phone is out, manufacturers like to give little or no support to their customers with regards to updating to the latest OS. This is a major bugbear of mine, as I believe that this is on purpose, so that we buy new phones.

    I would rather put my faith in XDA or similar, as Samsung show no interest in upgrading

    Just off to lunch, but once back I will put together a list of sites to visit....

    Can you check, and post, what build you are on, so I can point you in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    Ok....HBJB...

    Providing you are on 2.3.3, here is the link that explains how to root your phone...

    How To Root XWJVH Android 2.3.3 ROM for Galaxy S i9000 | The Android Soul

    This will also install ClockWorkMod Recovery.... This is what you need to flash the ROM. Once this is ready, it's worth going to Market and downloading "Titanium Backup". Backup all your data and apps to your external SDCard.

    Once this is done, go to this next link....

    [ROM][ICS][I9000] Team ICSSGS RC4.2 - xda-developers

    Scroll down to downloads and pick the top one.....

    Connect your phone to PC, and put the zip file onto the internal card. Boot into CWM mode (To boot into ClockworkMod Recovery — power Off your phone completely and then, press and hold (till Galaxy S logo appears): VolumeUP+HOME+POWER). You will then see that you can install the zip from sdcard.

    You may want to clear to factory settings before and AFTER you flash the ROM. I didn't and it doesn't seem to affect the phone....but that's in MY experience. Go to market, download "Titanium Backup" again, and restore all data and apps.

    Relatively straight forward, but you do this at your own risk!

    Just done my S2 with the equivalent "flavour" of ICS and all I can say is WOW I thought it was a great phone anyway but it's blown me away AGAIN. Having said that still looking at getting an S3 in the summer - looks lush esp if it gets the rumoured ceramic body.....

    I will skip the S2, and wait for the S3 too.....Ceramic body will be very nice, and shipping with ICS will be a deal-winner.

    ICS is a very nice OS (as you can see from previous comments of mine!) and it has given my S a new lease of life.

    By the way.....Why is it that when you flash a new ROM to your phone, the screen seems to become as good as new, to the touch? Or is that just me???

    I suspect it's probably to do with the cache etc getting wiped. The concept pictures for the SIII look amazing almost not bezel around the edge and if the figures about are accurate the phone itself won't be much bigger than the S2 it's just more of it will be screen - LUSH.

    I use mine with Active Directory manager on it so I can reset passwords etc without having to log on to a PC, v handy whilst wandering the school

    HBJB.....Did you do it?

    Any news?

    My ICS install was running nicely, but then over the weekend it started to freeze. Then, on sunday, it stopped booting altogether!

    Anyhow, I had a Titanium backup stored, so I revooted into recovery, wiped to factory reset, cleared cache and re-installed ICS. Took this as a good time to thin out some of the apps that I'd put on, and it seems to be running fine now. A LOT quicker!

    Also, I have an extended battery so I'm getting more than 1 day out of it.

    Not yet but mainly because I'm running late on a piece of OU coursework that's supposed to be in next week. Also my internet connection is virtually non existent at home (stupid BT exchange near me is falling apart gradually and I'm apparently on some dodgy piece of hardware - have got it moved now but haven't had the time to look at ICS).

    I'll keep you posted.

    If you DO go for the install, I would recommend flashing the Semaphore 9.1 (from the same forum) kernel.

    This is done in the same way as the ICS install...in that you install via recovery from the sdcard

    [SCRIPT][CM7/9] /datadata/ low storage notification lagless fix - init.d script - xda-developers

    I also recommend installing this script. It'll make your phone run smoothly, if it doesn't already.

    What has it upgraded to?

    How long have you had it?

    Why not upgrade to ICS?
