    I wonder if replacing the boot image like I did on the OV ROMS would fix it...

    Please use English when you are typing. I think you are trying to say that it doesn't work well. If you read the posts above yours, you'll read that this is not working very well at the moment and that there aren't any fixes right now. It is just an alpha.

    Translation:
    What's up?? I tried to use this awesome o/s and its great, but I can't get [anywhere] without having to use [these] two fingers every time I try and do something. If you have a patch for it or something please e-mail me or write me. Also I would like to try your other work too, if you don't mind.

    I hope Jelly Bean isnt a mess like this

    The only reason this is a "mess", is because this is a port, and like the title says, it's an alpha build. This isn't a fully working build.

    I doubt we're every gonna run jelly bean ever. xD If ICS can just barely run, you can expect that Jelly Bean won't.

    Actually jelly bean might just be easier to run than ICS :D I was reading an article on the new version and google is expected to release a "lite" version of the software specifically geared towards lower end processors and devices that run with little space. I thought that was pretty sweet. I don't know if the "lite" version will be lacking some of the features and capabilities of the full version. But either way is a great idea. Jelly bean seems alot more efficient than previous versions over all from what I've read :D

    I do not think that our hardware would suck for ICS, Its just porting over the drivers and other odds and ends and making sure everything works together is the biggest hassle with porting ICS if I understand correctly. But ICS is still early in its life-cycle and I hope it pans out good for us.

    12.04 beta is already out. but i don't like all of the new releases. All of them are so buggy. 10.04 is by far the most stable. :p

    Just because a software runs on a device doesn't mean it's best for it. Think of it like running windows 7 on a computer that was built for windows 98.. It might possibly run, but it wouldn't be good for the hardware.

    it's not that it would damage the hardware from running on it, but excessively over working it may cause it to overheat, which is the killer. Like why they refuse to release flash for arm6.

    If you have the drivers, it's more of a matter of the hardware being fast enough to be efficient.

    ooo, Since I just got myself a new laptop with multiple cores(finally), I figured I might as well lend a hand if I can. so I'm wondering, which setup did you guys use to build your DevEnv? There are so many suggestions out there I can't really decide which to use :D

    Does the om have enough space for ics? its 189 mb's or the rom im running on my razr. i dont know if ita phone specific as the size goes but thats way bigger than bobz 75mb gb rom.

    Might be looking forward to android 5.0 Jelly Bean, there working on a lite version for phones with limited internal space.
