I won't tempt you then by saying that XXLPH looks fairly stable so far... Wink

If I am changing my SD Card, do I just Windows Explorer copy the content from one to the other or do I need to do something else?

It is interesting reading people's strong opinions toward ICS...

XXLH3 is stable enough for a daily driver, I get the odd app hang but it sorts itself out. The folders (on trebuchet not TW) work brilliantly, the ICS task switcher is fantastic, the data usage/control is a nice touch, the new gmail and maps apps are so much superior to anything before it

There will be some functionality that people use that may not be present which yes would be a deal breaker however the phone appears 100% usable in normal daily use

Which external keyboard would you suggest is the best for use with this phone? Do I need any additional USB cables for a bluetooth keyboard.

I use an official HP Touchpad  bluetooth keyboard  without difficulty which you maybe able to pickup cheap.  
These have been discounted  recently due to the demise of the device. I paid around $36+ GST at trade. You don't need any special drivers or cable. You just pair them, and away you go.

After running the stock XXLPH rom for the last week, I installed Wanamlite V8.7 XXLPH rom this morning and have to say it is a fairly awesome compromise, it is basically stock Samsung rom with or without Samsung 'bloatware'(optional install) but with basic AOSP blue theming and the choice of TW/Nova/Trebuchet launchers.

It is non-wipe and i had quite a few issues when i first installed it, lockscreen freezing, email app FC'ing, black screens etc but after a couple of reboots it started behaving itself and has worked impeccably ever since not missing a single beat. Battery life seems to be as good if not better than any GB rom i tried.

Would be interested in others opinions, i have tried a few of the ICS roms over the last month and this one seems to be the best compromise if you like Samsung functionality but the ICS look and feel

Have you tried the Mui offering
Gipaq Miui  4.03
its good and pretty stable but Ive been using the XWLA4 CheckromV6 which is 2.3.6 (yes I know its GB but man is it good.So smooth and stable..best rom yet and has pulled me back to GB.
Ive flashed approxiamately 25 Roms in the last 3 months ,my poor phone is probably having an identity crisis lol.but I have to say for all the look an feel of ICS .The performance of this GB rom is exceptionable.
N.B and no there is no O/C in the kernal just pure speed from a well constructed AOSP base

On a side note I am very impressed with the AOSP offering from Kang for the p7500 very nice and smooth.
Looks as though ICS is tailored more to the slates..IMO anyway


Just in case your tempted :-)
