i have the paid version with more settings and it works good, but you can try the free version, but for $1.29 that's a steal, plus you can use it on your new phone as well.

Back on task...any update on ICS on Ascend I (the original reason for this post)?

Which reminds me this is why I hate forums especially on vBulletin...hard to navigate all the noise to get an answer.

Looking back on it, 2.3 on the Ascend wasn't really a far-fetched idea. The reason I thought there would be so much difficultly getting it on the Ascend was the drivers, libs and kernel were from 2.1. Obviously, CM7 runs just fine on the Ascend.

However, having dealt with ICS source, the biggest downfalls for the Ascend is the lack of GPU and memory constraints. I don't even think ICS would fit on the Ascend. If it does, it would only have maybe 20 megs of RAM left to play with. Obviously, measures could be taken to trim down the system size, but then what would be the point of running ICS?

Another downfall is the lack of GPU. The Ascend doesn't have the hardware to support ICS. All versions of Android had some sort of hardware acceleration, but not to the extent of ICS. I've never seen a version of Android that relied so heavily on HWA for the UI. Now, the Ascend might be able to use software/CPU rendering, but I don't know how well that would work. Furthermore, the source tree we would most likely build ICS for the Ascend from (CM9) doesn't support armv6-type CPUs anymore.
