    Wahoo, oodles of thanks! Will try this sucker out as soon as I can swing it :)

    Edit: Installed successfully with little difficulty. First time I downloaded the file it didn't unzip properly, but re-downloaded the 196 megabyte install file and it worked like a charm. Install went smoothly following the instructions given, and getting it up and running after only took a bit of time.

    Immediate impression is things run more smoothly. Other than the fact that I'm typing on a bluetooth keyboard and the android touchscreen keyboard wants to pop up, zero complaints off the bat. Things are noticeably faster, bluetooth keyboard connects far more smoothly than previously... Very, very pleased with immediate impressions.

    Good luck any other ICS converts - worked great for me!

    I'm quite shocked Johna2 isn't the first one in here. Hope he didn't have a stroke when he saw the news... Get well soon!

    Further reports... Bluetooth connectivity seems a lot less finicky than with honeycomb. Also, with honeycomb, I noticed that the touch screen began to stick a bit after a while using it, and only a full restart got it working well again for me after. Completely gone now. In general, things are faster - and Chrome beats Dolphin HD and the honeycomb stock browser handily. Much smoother/faster. Spell check is a bit depressing, but, a very welcome addition all considered.

    So, all considered, I'd strongly recommend the upgrade after two hours of fiddling. A noticeable improvement in almost every little area I had an issue.

    I have backed up my apps with App Backup & Restore.
    I have downloaded and extracted the install files.

    Ready to go...but waiting for more comments.
    I generally don't jump in too quickly!

    I am now on ICS & it was relatively quick & easy. There is nothing really to fear. The best part is that it fixed the wi-fi issue that has long plagued my LePan2.

    I second lepan69s comments. Easy to do. Just follow the instructions carefully. 500% improvement in the way it works. Well worth the effort. Find tons of info at lepanlife.com

    The only part that I got tripped up on is that I used WinZip to extract the files -- that will not work. You can download 7zip for free & it does the trick.

    I followed instructions and had no problems. It is great. Lots faster and wifi seems better and more stable. I had trouble with my backed up apps but it was my fault. I am very glad to have ICS. It was worth the wait. I wish I had it on my phone.

    Just upgraded to ICS. Super easy to do. Just follow the directions and its a snap. Love it so far! I had to reinstall all my apps (probably my error). It works awesome with the LP2!

    There are quite a few users suffering from wi fi issues after the ics update. Le Pan is aware of it and working on it. There is a lot more info at lepanlife.com

    I'm running ICS right now and its beautiful, no problems whatsoever. Everything seems to run more fluid. And even some apps have improved since the update. Also the new chrome browser is the best yet. Netflix streams flawlessly emails come in just as well as honeycomb. It connects to my hidden wireless network almost instantly. Very satisfied.

    I recently upgraded to ICS on the Le Pan 2 but noticed options to change ringtones in the settings page. Also when i try to download apps on Google Play it detects a phone rather than a tablet. does no one else have this issue?

    There is "Ringtones and notifications " In sound settings. What do mean google Play detects a phone?
