What is the best way to "Start Clean" ideally without using Flashtool?
I have backed up using PC Companion, is it possible to factory reset and then restore using this?
Installed SUS (Sony Update Software) rather than PC Companion and update now in progress.....DONE
Just updated no problem through Sony Update Centre. No need to factory reset. Impressed with ICS so far Got a white Xperia S on meteor!
Impressed with what exactly? Only thing I really noticed so far is the font appears different in most apps (plume/dolphin, etc).
No obvious difference really so far....what am I missing?
Factory reset does the same thing as flashtool's wipe command, but restoring a seus backup might null the whole process, depending on how in depth it is.
Find the swipe more responsive the phone seems to boot faster, all in all the phone runs better, no doubt improving battery life. I like the new texts and fonts, i think the software feels less outdated.
And get all technical if you want but i'm a smartphone newbie and am glad i upgraded that's just my opinion!!
Seems to be some comments on ICS battery drain on XDA
Only thing i have really noticed is the notification bar is ALOT smaller and the music app seems to be interfering with some of the shortcuts buttons i had configured for double twist.
Wish Sony would release a stock music + podcast player
so when updating you should backup everything >> factory reset >> then do the update, right?
also is this just for OS versions or firmware updates too
I think I'm getting great battery life on ICS compared to GB!
More than 36 hours usage, and still 16% battery
Is it just me or is the market (play or whatever it is called now) no longer able to update more than one app at a time? I have a fair few to update after moving to ICS and if I kick off more than one at a time, nothing downloads until I cancel them all and start them one at a time.
Must just be you , i updated 40 or so tonight
Yeah, I just updated 7 there, all automatic after I pressed the update button
Is it just me though, or do they update 1 at a time now, rather than all at once, like I remember before?
Fifa 12 is free on the Play Now Store as an FYI, not sure of the price on market
Wait no only a trial version
