Yep, if you value your sanity. Wait for everything to be stable, I hope one day we will be able to update finally.

Re: Update Android 4.0 Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V

Just upgarded to 4.0 through PC Companion an hour ago, took less than 15 minutes for whole process.

Good:

1. some of the apps run a bit faster than b4.

2. free up about 20mb of rom space.

Bad:

1. scrolling is worse than b4, I mean my scrolling used to be very smooth, but now a little bit lag, both on Xperia home screen and Go Launcher.

2. start up time (from power on to all apps loaded) takes about somewhat 20 - 30 seconds longer.

3. FOR UNKNOWN REASON, MY 3G INTERNET CONNECTION DISSAPPEAR..............wifi is working.

That's about it for one hour of useage experience.

Re: Update Android 4.0 Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V

you are lucky that you didn't update yet

Don't update to ICS

Sony offers you ICS full of bugs ....

my advice... DON'T UPDATE

Re: Update Android 4.0 Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V

I run Android 4.0.4 on my SE Neo (no V) now for a couple of days and i'm very satistfied. Even the Gallery photo app is finally fast now. Battery performance is even better than before.

Did have a performance problem at first but resolved this by reformatting my sd card..
