Re: UPDATED CONTENT {GUIDE} Install ICS ( Ice Cream Sandwich) as well as root Arc S , Ray and Neo V

Hi! I am from India. Could someone please tell me what is the best way to update to ICS officially? Should I just do it using PC Companion or follow this flashing technique by nabeel? Which method is best and why?

Re: UPDATED CONTENT {GUIDE} Install ICS ( Ice Cream Sandwich) as well as root Arc S , Ray and Neo V

HI,

I mailed the IMANGI studio ( Temple Run) developer, regarding support for Android 4.0.

Here,s what they mailed me back (also see the attached image)  :--

Unfortunately, there are a ton of problems with Temple Run on Android 4.x (ICS).  The 3d engine we are using, Unity 3D, doesn't support ICS yet, so there isn't much we can do to fix these issues until they add support. Sorry for the trouble!

Does this mean that Android 4.0 has soem flaws ???

or we would not be able to play Temple Run on SONY ever again Slightly frowning Face Slightly frowning Face Slightly frowning Face

Re: UPDATED CONTENT {GUIDE} Install ICS ( Ice Cream Sandwich) as well as root Arc S , Ray and Neo V

there's no fault but the game is just not compatible with ics yet.

you cannot play a Play station game in an xbox Winking Face

so its just a matter of time , when all other companies like samsung htc etc will upgrade to ics , the game develpers have to make it compatible with ICS Slightly smiling Face

so don't worry , you have to wait for some time.
