Default Ice-Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) custom rom

I was wondering if anyone could estimate how long it will take after ice-cream sandwich is released we will get a custom rom for it, or if anyone knows if anyone has said they will attempt to create a custom rom for us.

Also if anyone know how long it took for CM6 and 7, after froyo and gingerbread were released, to be made that would help for a very rough estimate.

I just wanna be up to date in my phones version lol

1. Source code hasn't being released yet 2. Don't think the gt540 is good enough to run it

1. I know it hasnt been released yet, which is why I said an estimate.

2. the GT540 isnt supposed to be good enough to run gingerbread but if certain features are removed it can be made to be less demanding and so it will beable to run, for example gingerbread supposedly needs a 1Ghz processor to run, which is why its a little laggy on the GT540.

Over at xda developers some people have ported the
ice cream sandwich to their phones!!
I am not sure which phone it was but i heard some people
say it might not work on the GT540.

I think someone on XDA said the minimum spec for ICS is an ARM7 processor which the GT540 doesn't have.

The SDK release of ICS required ARM v7, but when its released through the AOSP people should be able get it working on our ARM v6.

Nope, well I very much doubt it because until ICS there was no need for it, and it would just pull the price up for no reason.

Not that I have seen, but we will not see anything till the galaxy nexus release which is tomorrow, people tried to port the SDK version of ICS to our phone but it didnt work because the SDK rom only supports ARM v7 cpus and ours is a ARM v6.

Galaxy nexus is released tomorrow so we just need to get the rom off it then people can work on porting it.

Mike Gapinski has created and uploaded a ICS rom that should work on our device, I must stress that this is a pre-alpha release and therefore not much works.

Quote:
Works:
-SD card
-touch(no ring thanks to pcfighter fixing that)
-BT
-wifi and gsm driver inside no working yet(framework issue)
-more not explained like smoothness better than on GB
- with .32 from pebe(not blinking screen issue)
Download:
Hotfile.com: One click file hosting: ICS_Swift-mikegapinski.zip
Please use the download link in the quote as it supports Mike


This is however a pre-alpha release, I cant stress this enough, so there will be many bugs and alot of broken features. Incase anyone didnt know what the Wifi and GSM comment in the quote means is that he has included the drivers for the Wifi and GSM chips, however they dont work because I would assume a compatibility problem, if you download it ensure you have a full nandroid backup of your current rom to roll back.


One last thing, this is a pre-alpha release and alot of features will be broken download at your own risk, I will keep people over here upto date as much as I can.

Edit: Unless I get beaten to it, I will make a new thread for Mike's ICS rom when it has more features working and it will be worthwhile updating.

yeah wifi, bluetooth and some other bugs are now fixed!
Though i asked dudeman1996 if he could continue with the ICS thread...
but it doesn't matter to me as i will be only updating the thread until
the beta and then i will remove it!

BTW beta version is completed and apparently mike is uploading it but
his internet isn't working sooo we have to wait and see!

@mikegapinski: so guys prepare for a little gift today
He's been saying on Twitter how he's got the .35 kernel finished and fixed features in ICS. So hopefully today is the day we get a working release of ICS!

EDIT: at 7:36 pm GMT (40 mins ago) he said he's ODEXing and uploading the ROM!

You will need a dev to port it to your device, the ICS release for this phone will not work for other phones because it was made specificly for this phone.

No it won't.. Each ROM only works for a specific device, even if the specs are similar.

I just got off the phone with a metro customer service rep and was told they are testing ICS for an update release for the Esteem at the moment, He stated it is slated for release sometime next quarter after testing.


It's probably wishful thinking but mabey the engineer's testing it will leak it before then
