The general consensus is ICS will optimize applications every time Dalvik cache is wiped. So when restarting, or powering off, Dalvik should get wiped, and apps will be optimized. The only time it won't do this is if you have fastboot ticked, and you power down, then power back up (as this is when the power "fastboot" option is utilized). Even with fastboot ticked, when restarting it will still do this

hello All, new to the Vivid (just got one from Craigslist!) coming from the HTC HD2.
so everybody is getting "Android is upgrading" message at every boot?
Thanks to all (especially OP + PG!) for this ICS update.

Any thoughts on this posting from the Vivid Android Central forum?

"ICS updated, no hack nor rom"

***If anyone could get this newer OTA downloaded & pull it's zip from their phone before it installs it really would be helpful to the devs. It'll be in cache folder I believe, & you should be able to get it using about any file explorer***

I assume everyone is getting it. Wildchild released a update to his rom earlier this week and since I've flashed that one I no longer get that message when booting.

It's interesting that, from the person that posted the screenshots, that their kernel version and build number look almost a week newer than what I/we have.

Does it matter if the bootloader is unlocked or not?
