    i've been using custom roms from xda-developers.com since there was never an offical ICS release for my galaxy s. if you wanna go the unofficial route and aren't afraid of rooting your phone, try out the already available ICS roms for the razr http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1363

    I finally received ICS is this morning.....The verdict is still out for me. I wish I was able to hide apps that I dont use....ie bloatware.

    You can disable them. Go into the "Manage apps" area, touch the particular app you want disabled, and select "Disable". It pretty much removes it from viewing, and running.

    I've been waiting for ICS for my Tab 10.1 since day 1. It isn't 3g, so there's no carrier rapeware to install, so I can't figure out what the delay is. Driving me nuts!

    As for rooting the phone, I'd love to, but I need the phone for my business and am worried about screwing up the warranty.

    It is. And the new browser is much faster than the old one.

    You are right just checked it out and it is no longer beta.
    But it's by far the best browser I've used on android or ios

    I've thought that, but what happens to your installed stuff, does it stay, or get erased? The other question I have is, for example, right now, my phone is doing all kinds of bizarre issues, which may or may not be software related (I haven't taken it in yet, because I'm afraid they'll offer to replace it with an upgrade, but only if I sign a new contract...and I refuse to do that with Rogers). What are the chances of something catastrophic happening where I have to take it in, and can't revert to stock?
