since this is a leak of a version of the official leak, could we update from the leak to the OTA update without going back to .173? if not, could this work without wiping data because i hate reinstalling everything and placing them on the home screen.
Just out of curiosity, what are you running right now? Because if you are running an ICS rom, and you're using a launcher such as Nova, make a backup with that...then after you get the leak installed, just restore the backup.
What I did was...I backed up all my apps & app data & MMS/SMS etc. with MyBackup Pro. I also backed up Nova Launcher settings, Plume settings, etc within those apps. Then I followed Arcane's instructions EXACTLY to get on the leak. Then I restored all my apps. Then I restored the MMS/SMS, Dictionary, Call Log, etc. Then I restored data for certain specific apps...then I rebooted. Then I restored Nova's backup (which fixed my homescreen setup, etc)... then I manually fixed the other small things the backups missed...and all in all this entire setup (excluding the actual leak flashing, lol) took me 20 min or so...
Trust me, don't try to shortcut the OP instructions...just follow exactly what it says, and you'll be fine. Try to shortcut and you will have issues. Lol
