Google Through the Google Play Store, the next version of Android has been confirmed: Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. I'm hoping for just a single new feature: something to address the update mess. I don't care how, as long as they do something.

Maybe some OEM's have decided to skip ICS altogether in anticipation of Jelly Bean? Judging by how much ICS sucks (at least on my Iconia A500), that would make sense.


Sounds more likely to be an OEM customization problem, it's solid as a rock on my Galaxy Nexus.

CM9 is cool, but I had issues with Wifi Tethering on my SII, using CM7 RC3 these days.

Asus Transformer user here. ICS made my tablet a piece of garbage. I have random restarts and sleep of death all the time, plus lots of flickering in some apps. It's an aknowledged issue and Asus is cranking updates every month to solve the issue. Till now, no luck.

Hmm, a friend of mine has told me everyone he knows that has updated to ICS has problems. While that may have been an exaggeration, there do seem to be real issues with ICS, or at least with the stuff OEMs are putting out. I'm sticking with CM7 on my Defy, even though CM9 is available. CM7 does what I want and works without issues, so why mess with it.

Agreed. ICS ROM for Transformer sucks. Honeycomb did too.

The recent CM9 on my TOUCHPAD is extremely solid (but it does use the battery excessively).
