Yeah.. I'm just concerned on those who have no idea on rooting because ics eat lots of memory as sony said.. I'm waiting for the official update not because I will use it, but because I want the bugs on custom ics roms to be fixed..

Hi, I was asking about ICS rooting. I already have my phone on .62 with root using the downgrade/root/update over OTA method

What about Nandroid backups? Will they work?

Thanks for the reply but that wasn't actually what I asked. I was asking about downgrading from ICS to GB using a Nandroid backup that we can only access through recovery. How easy will it be to install recovery on ICS? Can we even use a Nandroid backup to downgrade from ICS to BG? I imagine the filesystem and partitions themselves will remain the same, can anyone confirm this?

Cheers.

Perfect! Thanks a lot!

Guess I was searching on the wrong forum hehe XDA is so big with so many sections that sometimes it's really hard to find the info I'm looking for, hopefully I'll get better at it

As for restoring from a Nandroid I guess I can always use Flashtool to downgrade and then apply the backup. For some reason I hadn't thought of that before heh
