    I will start development on this tomorrow. Give me time to get this together and i hope some of the developers help me with this to. Ics has a smooth nice looking UI and thats what some people are mainly looking for, will keep you and everyone else up to date on how everything goes.

    Thanks for you support

    You have a nice goal. But i would suggest you actually look into what goes into building ICS from source, especially for an unsupported device. Now doing a theme is completely different, and I'm sure there are more than enough people here willing to help you with that.

    If a developer who has built an aosp rom would care to give me a few *pointers on what is needed to port ICS to our device. ie, creating the device profile needed to build an aosp rom... I have no idea where to start for something that. I'm a semi-novice c++ programmer and lack experience with this sort thing. Even just some advice on doing it for a gingerbread aosp rom would help.

    Now that that's out of the way, and I mean to disrespect by this but. Do you really feel you need to style(fonts, colors, bolds) all of your posts? The rules on forum etiquette seem pretty lax here but it can still be a bit annoying to some other users.

    Everyone knows that our phone is not compatible with ics, All im trying to do is create a rom that is full ics as i can such as ( boot, launcher, framework.apk, setting.apk, phone.apk, messaging, a ics settings look, animation, keyboard, notification sounds etc). what im saying is even though our phone was not made for ics that this will be just like it.

    i style my words and make them bigger when im trying to make a point or if i feel that something is important.

    I think you mean an ICS-styled ROM. Cyanogenmod 9 won't even fit on our /system partition without MTD support in the kernel, so if you're going to try going that route, you've got quite the uphill battle ahead of you.

    I can sense a GingerCream Sandwhich ROM coming along. Why not do a kang? LOL, or take a Kang from the Prevail (With Permission of course, sorta).

    "Porting" or "stealing" for an already made rom. Copy and pasting needed files from stock rom to any givin rom so that it will boot.

    The CM7 repo is sorta up to date. I been messing with CM9 all morning though. There's all kinds of stuff you need to do by hand to get CM7 working like the betas though.

    Think "gank", but backwards. It's basically taking somebody else's work in whatever form, and dropping it into your stuff, and calling it your own without giving proper credit.

    Something a lot of people are guilty of...

    One thing to keep in mind is with alot of devices kanging is the only way anything gets done so its not a waste of time. Im guilty of this but i try to give credit most of the time if i forget someone thats another story. So what do you mean by hand? Im trying to build your source with alittle of my own tweaks to run miui better and at the same time help fine tune your device profile. Damn ubuntu 11.10 is giving me all sorts java errors. Shoulda never updated lol.
