    Hey everyone, just wanted to give the heads up, i am currently pulling source for a AOSP ICS rom, once everything is synced up, ill be compiling with existing proprietary files to see if i can get a bootable image. One problem, i will be needing some people to test this for me as my service with metro is currently off i wont be able to make or recieve calls text, data and whatnot. Im hoping to have this up sometime between today and tomorrow if everything works out. If your interested in helping with testing please reply to this message. Once its compiled and bootable i will PM you a download link, and my email. Any issues you have with the rom please send me an email so we can all work together on getting the bugs worked out. Once most of the bugs are worked out and it is mostly fucntional i will post a ROM thread for download and further assistance. Thanx everyone.


    UPDATE: here is a flashable zip. flash at your own risk. Not much works right now.. it does boot, there is a problem with the multitouch, you have to drag the circle over where you want to click and then put a second finger on the screen. but im working on it.. i have to go through and edit some stuff for a recompile. here is a link tot he flashable zip, just flash like any other rom, GAPPS IS NOT REQUIRED.

    EDIT:
    updated rom with a little eyecandy, enjoy the new bootanimation.

    If you get a black screen after flashing this, reboot into recovery and flash reppards AnyROM kernel.

    i will be uploading my source for others to work on, when i have the info for that i will post it.
    thanx again everyone. lets see if we can get this thing out of alpha lol

    EDIT: here are my working files for anyone who wants to try to compile this and help work out the bugs. they are all zipped up in a file of the respective folder name withing the android source. the lge.tar.gx need to go int he device folder.

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/42841380/vendor.tar.gz
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/42841380/external-webrtc.tar.gz

    its gonna be a project lol.. considering at the moment there is only one phone using it lol. but im hoping to get a bootable compiled. may not fully work but if it will boot we're half way there lol
     

  11. Yea.the dev's over in the evo section on xda got a bootable ics alpha going. Barely anything works. But its a start. Wont be too long before lots of devices have a piece of ics. :) patiently waiting.

    Hey man, I'm in too. I'll be able to test everything including 3g. And I'll mess around with it and let you know if something works better after some tweaks.

    I heard the Gnex has the face camera and will unlock if it sees your face. I wonder if it could also work for the optimus' camera. Since it doesnt have a face camera. I'd like to test that mainly lol. If it doesn't work, ima go straight up and install a face camera.

    I'd love to help once it's into beta. The Optimus M is my only phone so I can't really be playing around with alpha's, but I sure would love to help beta test it.

    I have three Optimus M's. One isn't really necessary. I would be happy to BETA test. Not ALPHA test. Get it running with Cell, and text, I'm in. We can happily work out thee bugs from there.

    I'm no ROM developer, but I respect those that are. I sincerely hope you continue your work and keep this tired old phone (that was born this way :( ) alive.

    I'm willing to be a tester. Nand backup will help me out just in case of boot loop. And lgnpst just in case I can't get back into recovery. :)
    I was thinking is it possible to use the ics system.img from sdk and extract it with dsixda kitchen??
