I'm still here! Sorry for the delay. In fact, I haven't yet done the upgrade due to the fact I was travelling. When I got back my UPS (no-break) went down and I was worried abot a power outage in the middle of the update.
Another thing - I discovered that doing this will wipe all your apps, so here's a tip: I used the screen capture to go through my list of apps (active applications / downloaded apps) to take a snapshot page by page, so I can download them all again after upgrading. Oh yeah...my router went belly up too, so I wouldn't have been able to download the apps on a 3G connection!!!
Well, I'm gonna go for it TOMORROW - so I'll keep you all posted either way!!
Hey Dave! Check out the app called Appsaver. It lets you chose which apps you want to save and it drops their apks into a folder that you can move to the external. Afterwards you simply browse to that folder and reinstall them again. It does not save app data though. Mybackup Pro should though.

One other thing, I understood what Marcelo was saying....he was just asking to be kept in the frame as he'd bought a phone like mine from Paraguay and couldn't get updates either...
Marcelo - pode ficar sossegado que eu te dou um update aqui assim que fizer a atualização, falou!
Also - what's the deal with the 'repartition' box in Odin - some say NOT to check it, others Say check it....?
Once again - Thanks!!!!
hey guyss2.JPG wich file should i put in pda, my problem is this device is on cellphone..triangule..computer screen i have no idea wich firmware came with it customer doesnt know, its factory unlocked thats all i know thenks for your help
Hey everybody - just to let you know....I finally did the update to ICS 4.0.3 using one of the stock ROMS Ollie posted. I had the same doubt as Elma (above), so I decided to use the "open Brazil" ROM because it was a single file and I thought there was less chance of any problems that way!
I put the single file in the "PDA" and it worked great - my phone is working fine and I dodn't lose ANY apps, so that saved a lot of time. I just had to reorganize everything.
One thing I learned....it seems you have to open the "task manager" and kill the 3 KIES applications running on your computer before you do the upgrade (even with KIES closed, they run in the background). If you don't do this, apparently, KIES can block the upgrade and BRICK the phone...
Well - there goes. IMO it's worthwhile - good luck to you all!
Elma - I'm no expert, from what I saw
good for you but i cant install brazil rom so im gonna wait for Ollie to tell me wich one i need to install probably all 3 to make sure is a clean install
Yeah sorry - Elma - from what I saw, you need all 3. The main one in PDA, the first one on your list goes in "CSC", and the file with "modem" in the name goes in "PHONE"
I saw a bunch of guys doing this on the YouTube videos...but like I said, I'm no expert - so best wait for Ollie!
