So, Civ (it's okay if I call you Civ, right)

Are you confident you'll be able to incorporate all your fun stuff in the actual release (OTA for U.S. on the 27th they say)? Do you recommend NOT installing the OTA when it comes out since we'll lose root, or should we go ahead and do so in order to get the ICS bootloader? Since there appears to be a working way to get root on the ICS bootloader, it may not be that big of a deal... Or should we all just wait to hear from you until you get the actual release build modded?

Thanks.

Just wait until official OTA update is released and devs let you know which direction you should take. Patience ;]

Why is it that this is the ONLY rom where you have to do a FULL data wipe with EVERY update...even a small one such as 12 to 12.5? with every other rom on ever other device I have I can do a dirty install with the smaller updates. With this rom my homescreen set up always goes back to stock & I can't get wifi to work without a full wipe?

I love this rom & I think it is great work for a stock looking rom. But it is a PITA to have to re-set up EVERY update...

Geeze it's not really a big deal. Do a backup from CWM and restore just the DATA from the backup.

Brings everything right back to the look and apps as before the flash.

I love Flexreaper, my tablet seems so much more stable then on any of the honeycomb roms. I am still on r11 and don't plan on changing until after official ICS is released by acer and see what we get for roms, I just don't see enough different between r11, and r12/12.5 to do all the work.

GEEZE why isn't that put in the OP? It's not needed on other roms. I'm not bashing the developer's work on the rom. It's beautiful. But as often as these roms are updated for small updates a full wipe should not be needed.

Plus I lose the use of my SD card if I don't do a full wipe.

All I'm asking is that this needs to be CLEARLY noted in the OP. ALL developers suggest a full wipe in their op...that's a given. But it's known that you get away with a dirty install 99% of the time. This is a great rom but PLEASE fix this issue.

The part about restoring just data IS in the OP.

Tip for restoring data and settings (as it is recomended to do full wipe before installing any new release)

Restore you data (and only your data) with cwm or RA recovey in advanced restore options after you flashed the rom.
