Default ICS ROM Coming

So I was saying in some of my other posts. It shouldnt be that difficult to take official Honor based ICS update that has been released and port it to the mercury. And it looks like the guys over at Cricket Users are doing just that

Mercury ics rom!!!

There have been reports that both cameras are currently working. And since the ICS update supports 108op recording I am hoping we will also get this once this ROM is released. If anything maybe it will fix the video recording issues we all have been having.

Update:
Now there is an official thread/link regarding the build of the ICS ROM

what would ics do for this phone? The same as what cm7 did for the ascend?
What's the big deal with ics? Full of questions sorry.

No. You need root and a custom recovery to flash any custom rom

As soon as I can achieve root, I'd be glad to test it out.

i've flashed ics 4.0.3. alpha, its an alpha and FC,S everything no signal ETC, you do not need to be rooted but you do need to have clock work mod recovery, you will not be able to flach back to stock rom normally either ics creates an ext 4 partition that needs to be formated before stock flash back is possible.
