I was really hoping that the update would put back the move to SD feature but didn't seem to do much. 

Anyone know of a way to move my apps across to my SD card - Preferably without root?

Indeed. I was in the process of upating CF-Root last night when I got the software update as the CF-Root upgrade was rebooting the phone....had to go and do it all over again.

Yes, updating to CF-Root 6.4, via Odin, then Triangle Away.

Would be quite keen to try mobile odin, see how that goes.

Yes mine went to 4.0.4 last night .
Wikipaedia suggests these improvements
  • Stability improvements
  • Better camera performance
  • Smoother screen rotation
  • Improved phone number recognition

Flashed my first new ROM on the S3 this morning, trying Foxhound which looked like it was good given the feedback. Thus far very impressed although too early to see any real performance or battery gains.

The differance I like with this ROM is that it has a built in OTA app in the settings in which you can update, change themes mods etc. Also on flashing it has aroma installed which gives you options like a lite version without bloatware.

Certainly not a flashaholic but this ROM certainly is differant to ones I have used in past although I'm sure there are similar.

Rather large download of about 750mb but given backups are larger it is most likely an S3 thing.

I thought it was already on 4.0.4.

I see the latest VF upgrade is already available on SamMobile.

Nothing on there at all for the Telecom S3. Odd.
