I don't think you can in many cases. Safest not to.

Agreed - the frameworks of GB and ICS are substantially different, so you're heading for a world of hurt if you restore.

Updated to ICS 4.0.3 using KIES Air desktop application. Positive experience. No issues encountered.

I did note that my battery life was dessimated shortly after completion. After a full charge that night, the usage seems to be the same/similar as it was prior to upgrade.

I too find that Titanium sometimes hangs while doing batch restores, which is why I restore on a per-app, per-need basis. That way you can figure out what the problematic apps are, and also keep your system free from unnecessary junk. (PS: Viber always restored fine. Restored between three devices, between multiple GB -> ICS ROMs too)

Yes it may just have been where Viber sat in the stack to restore, not sure. I really must figure out how to remove old unwanted apps from google or wherever they lurk.

Otherwise Wanamlite/Abyss has gone on fine and is running very nicely. I wont be going back to GB now.

Nice - have just dipped down under 80% battery after 24 hours' use on the Wanamlite+Abyss combo - very happy with that!!

Yes, that's the ICS upgrade. My wife is now running it on her phone (stock i9100T, unrooted) and she only has one problem, the phone won't turn off. I need to reflash it to see if that'll fix it, but it just restarts each time. Have to pull the battery to turn it off.
