    I'll get official ICS but Sony is all like, it's going to be slower, use more ram, etc.

    So the FUCK YEAH ICS WILL MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER has died a bit. I think I might end up sticking with GingerBread.

    It's because ICS was mostly designed to work with devices with 1GB RAM (and more of course). 2011 Xperias have 512MB.

    But at least Sony is being mature about it and treats its customers like adults, explaining the situation and releasing ICS anyway with some toggles to turn certain features off, instead of just cancelling the whole update without a reason.

    I wish that manufacturers would at least release stock ICS for phones that can't work with ICS + custom UI.
    Of course not through OTA, but maybe in a "dev centre" which would require more advanced users to flash it, since not everyone would be happy if the interface they got used to just dissapeared with an update.

    Just found out Google Voice is available in the UK, tried setting it up on my Note for some visual voicemail with GiffGaff, realised the app isn't working yet and got charged 20p for international texts.

    It's only a launcher choice.

    Oh, well I was thinking he meant stock UI because the default highlight color in GB is orange, but ICS has blue etc.

    Just rooted my Atrix 4G. Surprisingly easy.
    What apps should I get now?
    Is it possible to install another ROM, but still keep the default ROM? Like dualing booting?

    Speaking of UI choices, does ICS for the Note lock you in to TouchWiz's styling?

    The closest you can get to dual booting is doing a nandroid backup using Clockworkmod recovery (CWM). When you do a Nandroid backup it basically creates a snapshot of your phone at that moment in time and can restore everything to exactly how you left it regardless as to what else you've done since. If you juggle two nandroid backups you could do a really awkward dual boot.

    ROM wise, there's a couple of ICS ROMs, Neutrino's ROM and Nottach's ROM. All the ICS ROMs are still a bit ropey but decent if you can overlook the few shortfalls. I used the multidevice collab as a daily driver for quite a while, but Jokersax is a lazy dick when it comes to changelogs, so when you flash one you're basically going in blind. I'm currently using Nottach's ROM which is great if you want an optimized version of the stock ROM. Also comes with a really friendly installer. Neutrino is extremely fast but only because it's extremely barebones.

    Sony is talking out their ass. Everything has been running better since I put ICS on my Xperia Mini. It's sexier, smoother, even the battery life has been better. Sony is probably just saying that because all their bloatware makes their firmware run like a dog.

    Edited:

    if youre still on stock i feel sorry for you.

    Edited:

    also there is nothing wrong with using more ram, it just means you'll have less apps being kept in memory.

    Well by the time I get ICS and install it in would probably get root and delete the bloatware anyways, or deal with it after I send my mini pro to fix, again so I can do other root related stuff. And yeah, I'm still on stock because the official one hasn't come out yet, you have a unofficial or leaked one or whatever.

    It doesnt need 20 cores for it to run smooth. Thats why.

    Edited:

    Also dav0r speaks sense.
    That's very true, but there are a lot of things that need more computing power to run. 1080p video recording would be a start, and better 3D games would be able to run.

    Why do you think Apple shoves monstrous GPUs into their iPhones and iPads? It isn't just for bragging rights, it's to make it possible to run incredibly high quality graphics without stuttering in 3D games. It only takes running a PS1 emulator once to realize that processing power really is quite important.

    In other news, I ran the V6 Supercharger script on XDA and it really does work. In conjunction with something that flattens 3D widgets in Sense 3.0 and the entire phone boots up faster and operates with much less lag.

    It was the Desire, and while people who want and love AOSP are perfectly okay with it, the average person who was used to the 2.2 FroyoSense would freak the fuck out.

    I can attest to the fact that any device from HTC with at least 512 MB RAM and a 1 GHz Snapdragon S2 with 4 GB internal NAND storage will run flawlessly on ICS. I know this because the One V has the same specifications.

    The Desire Z may have more troubles as a result of only having 2GB available, but this just means that sd-ext will be needed. The Incredible S, Desire S, and similar phones will have no issues with running the exact same Sense 4.0A ICS OS that the One V does, and to say so otherwise is to fly in the face of logic. HTC is delivering updates for pretty much all phones near the spec level of the One V, so the fact that Sony isn't means more than just increased RAM usage, but shitty programming.

    As it is on Gingerbread, my Desire HD runs blindingly fast with a few mods and custom ROMs.

    Samsung is just being fucking lazy and deliberately EOLing the SGS1. The SGS1 obviously can take ICS, the Nexus S does it and there's more than enough internal storage with the 16 gigs it comes with, unless it has a weirdo 1 gig ROM and 15 gig microSD or something. The Hummingbird is more than fast enough to run it, and I know for a fact that with native ext4 partitioning the Galaxy S flies.

    My dad got his stock rom running pretty well but he stripped it bare and overclocked it, which requires unlocking your bootloader and voiding your warrenty.

    Edited:

    You can safely overclock the mini pro to about 2Ghz stable, though it'll probably half the life of your phone.

    I'd say don't overclock the mini pro any higher than 1.5 GHz.

    Edited:

    I'd also suggest running AOSP with custom OOM scripts and the like (V6 Supercharger can do this, but you absolutely must run a nandroid backup before attempting because the changes it makes go deep.), that is the best way to get absolute speed.

    Also, to those of you with a GT-I9100G, if you want official CM9 support, go here:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=24471034
    If anyone cares: Codeworkx bought the GT-I9100G, CM7 is in progress, CM9 will start when there's atleast a leak of official ICS.

    Not deserving it's own thread; Whenever I get a message on Skype , my SGSII (stock I think is the right term 4.0.3, is normal GT-I9100) doesn't vibrate even though I have vibration on (Vibration Intensity for notification is around 50% or so in Settings -> Sound -> Vibration Intensity) in settings and in Skype (Notifications is ticked, New IMs is ticked and Notification vibrate is ticked), anyone able to help me?

    Is an Xperia Play still worth getting? i love the gamepad on it but i don't know if it's getting abit old.
    Though the main thing i'll do on it is running emulators, if it can do that i'm happy.

    What ROM? I have CM9 and vibration works every time, but it's not the long vibration from stock gingerbread, instead it's two short vibrations.

    And personally I like that more, because two vibrations with a short pause are more noticable while the phone its sock in my pocket.

    edit: Have you tried playing with Vibration pattern in Messaging settings?

    I "fixed" the screen not being turned on by using SMS Popup, displays a popup window with the message etc, the beta is a near complete rewrite for ICS and is pretty customizable.
    (obviously it allows the screen to be turned on for a selected period of time)
