It's fine to do the ICS update if you do it the right way and understand going into it that you might have to factory reset to wipe ALL your data and settings and start over again.
The update its self is just fine. The issue, is that there is simply no way to make sure "everybody" can get the update and not have issues with something that is already on their Sensation.
- So, first get backups of everything as if you may need to factory reset.
- Run the ICS update
- If you have any issues after the update, try a battery pull, if that does not help, do a hardware factory reset.
- If you had issues and had to do the hardware factory reset, then restore your stuff over time. You could have some app that causes issues, so you need to be careful if something causes problems.
Yea, we know, you said that, repeatedly...
The device is a fully functional device with ICS after the update. People with problems all didn't do a hardware factory reset yet. One person had an issue other than that, just one person.
People the world over have the update and most are pleased.
Enjoy GB, I'm glad I have ICS and have no need to look backward.
I updated and kinda wish I waited awhile... most if not all of my con's should be fixed with future updates <- problem with that is knowing the relationship with T-mobile and HTC this could literally take forever<- especially since it's almost been a year since the device was released
PRO's of update:
- It looks good
- Adds some nice functionality and useful features such as swipe to remove notifications
- Wider selection of Apps from the app store such as <- Google Chrome Beta
CON's of update:
- It is laggy even with factory reset
- There is a way to work around some of the laggyness which stem from some default apps that come with the update... you need to go into settings and disable them
- You also need to configure I think one setting in the develepor settings mode to stop some of the laggyness<- honestly though when I did this it stopped allot of the laggyness, still in the testing phases though
- My 4G seems to drop out more often than before
- Sometimes the phone will restart itself
- When it restarts if I had my bluetooth on it will get stuck in a turning on state <- it never goes from this state until you manual re-start the device<- this may have been a result of me having fast boot turned on I'm doing some tests now to see if it will change
