    Just rooted and upgraded to ICS 4.0.4 successfully! Unfortunately I have not been able to receive data while on AT&T network here in the states regardless of the data plan used… such a shame since I love this phone but won’t be able to use it. I’m going to go back into att to try one more time after this update, maybe the stars will aline for me on this one.. Thanks for great Tutorial, helped me through 100% of the process (don’t tell anyone but this was my first time) :)
