Default Ice Cream Sandwich for Mesmerize - Stable and working

Hey folks, just passing the word along that there is a solid, stable ICS ROM that is working for the Mez. I loaded it up this weekend, and so far it's running fairly smoothly. Here's the link:

[ROM] JT's ICS Build Edited for Mesmerize & Showcase! [Build 5] - RootzWiki

The only gripes I have are the battery life is less than stellar (not terrible, but not great) and the stock kernel is not able to be overclocked through SetCPU. Otherwise, it's pretty slick.

it a a good idea to flash build 2 then build 5 and make sure you read everything in the first post.
there is a glitch kernal that will allow you to over clock up to 1400, I've been using it with no issues.

you need to go to the very same post that you downloaded the ics from from and download the gapps7.1 and the gapps fixer and you should be good to go!

Yep, the initial ROM doesn't include GApps, so you have to flash that package separately. I have had no issues with mine once I did a factory reset to take care of some of the force close issues. It's been my daily driver for about two weeks now.

By the way, what are your thoughts on Glitch kernel? Does it allow anything other than the OC settings?
