You rock! I'm a big fan of AOKP and it looks like they have a ROM.

One word of Advice, you must be on a Gingerbread rom in order to flash an ICS sandwhich rom and if you are on an ICS rom and want to try a new ICS rom, you must go back to a Gingerbread rom first.

Interesting! I wonder if that will get fixed when the official ICS rollout happens. I pretty much expect to be set with aokp for a while though.

Cool! Yeah rooting with Odin looks pretty ready. I'm actually gonna play around with stock for a couple days before flashing anything. This is such a huge upgrade from what I had that I'm just having too much fun. Lol!

Justin, I'm running Blue Kuban now. Absolutely love the extra From features! So lets say I want to try a different ics rom, which gb rom do you normally flash first? Also, some roms suggest flashing a kernel with Odin before flashing, is that necessary?

I would probably use Odin to avoid bricking your phone. I made a backup of my phone when I rooted it, so I just go back to that, I might download a GB rom, but the rooted one I have is fine since it would be temp anyways if I were going to another ICS rom.

What I like about Blu Kuban is the fact that it has a rom updater so any features you need are right there to flash.

Yeah, it looks like Odin is pretty cool. I was asking around at XDA, and it looks like I have to flash the EL26 kernel in Odin before flashing a new ICS ROM.

So do you personally just restore your back up instead of using Odin? I made a rooted back up right away too, so I thought it might just be easier to restore my original back up (EL29) and then just flash a new ICS ROM.

And yes, it might be hard to leave the Blue Kuban. Sooooo many options in this ROM. It looks like S-Voice is in there. All the boot animations are great as well.

So I asked qb77 about the gb ics romantic flashing since some don't require you to flash back to gb and he said correct just use Odin to flash the el26 kernel and flash even on a ics rom. Might try it out

yeah, from what I've gathered, these are the steps:

1. Use Odin to flash EL26 Kernel
2. As the phone auto reboots, hold Power+Vol Up
3. In Recovery, backup, wipe, flash ROM
4. Enjoy!

Aokp is nice, but I'm going to wait for theme chooser to work properly. Currently it causes boot loops.

Thanks, I ended up biting the bullet and got a Sprint contract and picked up the Galaxy S2. My work has a new Sprint discount that gives me over 30% off. Couldn't pass that up! Got the S2 for $99, hard to beat.
