    WARNING THIS ROM IS SO FAR FROM DONE. IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE IT IS NOT MY FAULT. BOTTOM LINE YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!! NO NOOBS!!!!!!!!!!!! THE SCREEN FLICKERS BLACK ALLLOOOTT AND DOES NOT HAVE NATIVE TOUCH (ITS ALMOST LIKE A MOUSE.)

    ONLY FOR OVERCLOCKABLE ADMIRES!

    KNOW BEFORE FLASHING YOU WILL BE GOING BACK TO WHAT EVER ROM YOU HAVE AS OF NOW. MAKE SURE TO MAKE A BACKUP you will need it ;)

    THIS ROM IS PORTED FROM THE SAMSUNG PREVAIL (STILL SAYS PREVAIL IN ABOUT PHONE) IT IS NOT BUILT FROM SOURCE

    PHONE CALLING WORKS

    EVERYTHING ELSE IS NOT WORKING AS OF NOW. THIS IS VERY MUCH A WORK IN PROGRESS

    BUT I AM PUTTING IT UP FOR A FEW REASONS. I WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO SEE ICS IN ACTION. EVEN WITH THE SCREEN PROBLEMS YOU CAN STILL PLAY WITH ICS. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO WORK WITH THE KERNEL TO GET THE TOUCHSCREEN TO WORK BUT AM FOR FROM FINSHING. PLEASE TO ANYOTHER DEVS TAKE A LOOK AND SEE IF YOU CAN FIX ANYTHING.

    the touchsreen is kernel related as the touchscreen driver src needs edited. The keymapping files will be needed too as they are diff for each device. ;)

    Color me stupid, as well, but can someone explain what "kang" is? I assume its some kind of port or something? I don't know, I only ever saw it here and I also saw it on the threads for CM9 on the Optimus S.

    I might not be right but i think it is like porting but mostly like dragging and dropping files ... Replacing / copy nd paste....

    yea the flciker is prolly due to the display drivers (adreno I believe) and the touchscreen drivers not been edited. Sounds like you have touchscreen_legacy (which it needs to be) set tho hence it acting like a mouse pointer atm.

    From what I understand, to kang is to take the work of another and include it into your own work/ROM without crediting the source. In the case of ICS Kang ROMs, I believe it is all people dropping each other's work into one ROM without worrying about crediting people and simply pushing out new features to the ROM.

    a dirty port fits that description.

    A real port, that being one built from src, requires config files edited for the intended device, the correct props pulled from the device, and it all massaged n buttered up to work correctly with each other. This is still quite a under taken even if using a kanged repo as a base. Not to mention there is no getting around the kernel edits/hacks. IMO almost anyone can do a dirty port if they put the time into it, but it takes a lil skill and knowledge to build from src. ;)

    Yea purdy much the word kanged means to rip off some ones else work and not give due credit. Cm lessened the meaning as most unofficial CM ports are technically kanged, but its hard to not give CM crdit as everyone knows who makes CM lol. Dev's just port it different devices, usually from source, but you do have those who 'port' precompiled CM ROM's from other devices. Which IMO is stupid because its src is readily available.

    ;)

    One thing i am good with is building kernels so working on the drivers want be to hard on me. so i need to edit the touchscreen lib files on the system side of things. then the drivers on the kernel level? BTW i do intend to give full credit were it belongs. I never think of kanging as stealing..
