I'm currently changing my region with Condi's tool. Here's hoping that works to download and crack the update...hrm..

edit: It's now telling me the update is to 3.2
Seems odd. Thinking maybe I should wait until Condi or someone can confirm that this will work alright...

Yes, definitely I will make one :)
I'm at work right now, will start making ICS for every region
today evening.

Its correct behaviour. Thats because of sony.ro.build.incremental lowest valu ('1'). You can update (downgrade) to 3.2, then again update to 3.2.1,
and then to 4.03 :D
Or change value to higher to get ICS update.

OR BETTER - wait for me (or other users) and we will give proper,
easy, step by step instructions.
I want to make ICS rom capable to use for every region :)

Thanks for the quick reply Condi!

If that is normal behaviour, I might just carry on, and move through all of the firmwares, keeping them rooted along the way.

Will let you all know how it goes!

I see they have added direct access to files on the SD card. :)

Can anyone convince me of a good reason to wait for a root version? I can't think of anything I really need it for on this, unless someone finds a way to run Sky Go somehow through a hack.

Bojanglez, I'm thinking the same as you - the only reason I rooted 3.2 was for the init.d support to run scripts for SD cards. Now that ICS supports that, is there any reason to root?....

Probably, there's always a good reason for it - CPU Master is as good excuse as any!

I can't get the update here in the UK yet anyway, so I will wait and see how it goes here.

If I can get a rooted version as quickly as the official I probably will, but I'm not sure I can resist the temptation just to upgrade if it becomes available before.:confused:

Likewise - the temptation to just go for it is great - BUT - we should be aware of the kernel situation (.10) that stopped some users from rooting. Best not to be too hasty, Condi might well present something to keep root. He usually presents something awesome!
