Re: Put your ICS Problems in this thread [for those who have it installed]

Installed ICS, first thing i noticed that my walkman wasnt working. Googled it, several people had the same problem. Someone on this forum posted that you should back-up your phone, then restore it...

Well one thing worked, Walkman doesnt crash.... however i've lost ALL of my apps..

Re: Put your ICS Problems in this thread [for those who have it installed]

I have been checking these threads daily waiting for the ICS update to come to my model - as I wait for it to come (or not?) I read through other posts listed here and I'm beginning to think upgrading may not be the best option. There seem to be so many complaints (especially in this thread) of problems caused by the upgrade...

So my question to you is... has Sony released a faulty or incomplete upgrade - or are these just a few bad apples amongst the bunch? I really would like the upgrade, but now.. I'm not so sure...

Also for those who have problems, are the problems arisen from official upgrades from Sony or are they from third party upgrades (eg "Flashing" or "Rooting" your phones)?

Edison,

Yes email problems here, sometimes it downloads a couple of old emails [maybe 3] but sometimes it says "cannot connect" or connection failed,. something like that...   Email program as a whole is rather poor.

I've just had a problem with the nfc not working properly or taking ages to scan a smarttag with or without a case, not sure if it's software or hardware related

I own an Xperia S.Its now running on ICS.

There is only little ram left even in normal running conditions.

Sometimes Scrolling screens also becomes difficult.

I've unistalled a lot of apps after ics update.Even then the phone slowed down a bit.

Gingerbread was quite stable and very smooth compared to ICS.

ICS is great with full HD videos also,quite zappy and the quality increase can be noticed very clearly when seen on a large screen via HDMI.The interface is great in addition to many developer options.

But I cant understand why the software got so heavy compared with the changes from Gingerbread.

Re: Put your ICS Problems in this thread [for those who have it installed]

for those who are having issues with the phone i suggest you do a full restore/repair with PCC or SUS and do a FULL wipe of internal storage before posting here. It usually fix those tiny bugs.

If you already did then, post here.

Anyway, anyone else having issues with the BOX app?

When ever i want to download a file, for example: an image.

It saves into the phone, but it doesnt show up in the gallery. It asked me where i want to save and i nearly tried all the folders, the file is there when i went back to download it again but its not showing up even if i restart the phone.

File will appear on the computer when i connect to it but it will not show up on the phone.

No issue with this with GB back then. and on top of that BOX no longer shows what files are already downloaded. On GB it used to show a orange check mark or something on the thumbnail of the file.
