Android has had active memory management since Gingerbread.  There's no problem with extra apps open because the OS will automatically close them as it needs the Ram.  Also, there is no "root areas,"  rooting just means you can run certain apps that can't be run on non-rooted systems.

Odd... LoL... I would either side-load the app, or switch back to the stop build.prop, install, and revert again to the new build.prop.... Both are options, one is obviously faster. :-)

 

As it is these days, most people that have an Android tablet likely have an android phone. If so, anyone who is seeking apps that show incompatible with the ICS Builds for the K1 could always download them to their phone, use a app backup to backit up, then copy it from the phone to the tablet. For most, people would figure this out, but can also be a very easy oversight on a solution. :)

The only streaming flash problem I've had is that the last few minutes of a video won't load , which makes the video end abruptly. I can usually fix this by touching the screen every 5 minutes or so to nurse the progress along and load the whole video.

For me this is a huge improvement for me over HC. My players would constantly crash from an "unknown error" on flash videos and then garble the audio when I'd try to relaunch the video.

That's the way my viewing was on HC - always truncated. Frequently, a video on youtube for example would freeze after 2 or 3 minutes. Now I can't watch anything - not even with the stock browser (I prefer Dolphin). The funny thing is, I cannot even open up the adobe flash app to set my settings, I get a black screen in every browser I have tried.

I use an application called "Kidsplace" on the Play store. You bascially create a sandbox with onlky the applications you want them to run. To exit it, you need a PIN or gesture. It is free and works pretty good. I also have it installed on my phone. Here is a link

Thanks again to all that have made the ICS update possible and make my K1 usable...

I flashed the stock with g apps... play store etc... no issues yet.. I got the google maps side loaded via a provided link. 

 

I had an issue with the GPS capablities before the update and have noticed it still cant seem to lock on to GPS ... Anyone have any suggestions??... It wont kill me not to have it, just a nice thing..

thanks

Can someone please confirm the "R1" is the latest version from khanning. No other updates except the "keyboard mapping" fix?

Thanks gallahad2000. I am still going to wait untill some more of the bugs are worked out before updating. I don't want to have to set everything up over and over each time it gets wiped.
