    4.0.3 Update

    What do you have to do if you're rooted and want the upgrade? Is it even out yet? Is it worth it? Sorry guys, I just dont know. I just go the phone today. I'm rooted and running 4.0.2.

    It's not out yet that I've seen. Have you installed CWMR? You may be able to take it rooted. If not I think you'd have to use the guide for returning to stock and then take the OTA. There are some custom builds of it out already though.

    I did install CWMR. I get to it through ROM Manager.

    Did you do the permanent install or are you having to re-flash it each time you want to access it? The reason I ask is because the phone uses the factory recovery to install the update, so you for sure won't be able to take it if you have CWMR installed permanently. You'll have to return to stock or put the factory recovery back in place.

    I actually did this and started with step 3:


    1. Unlock the bootloader if locked (fastboot oem unlock)
    2. Gain root access (superboot)
    3. Download ROM Manager from the market (free or buy and support the app)
    4. Flash ClockworkMod from ROM Manager
    5. Download Root Explorer from the market ($3.99)
    6. In Root Explorer go to System
    , mount as R/W(button up towards the top of the app), find recovery-from-boot.p (change to 1recovery-from-boot.p or delete)

    ClockworkMod should now be permanently flashed.

    Yeah it looks like you went the permanent route. Have you flashed any custom ROMs? Some of them are source built on 4.0.3. The development community will always be a little ahead of the official releases.

    Did you get the phone rooted and bootloader unlocked?

    Biggest thing about flashing (or even just being stock with recovery installed) is MAKE A BACKUP in recovery. Do it NOW because if anything happens, you can just reload your phone to the state it is in when the backup is done. So if nervouse, just run a back up, then flash and if you have problems or don't like it, just run a restore in recovery.

    I made a backup after I restored all my apps so I guess thats good. What's the advantages to these roms? This is the first phone I have that you can flash custom kernels. I don't know much about that.
