    This nothing but an IHO based gingerbread ROM that is heavily themed to look like ICS. If you look closely at the title of the thread it days 2.3.7, that's gingerbread, not ICS.

    True, there was a thread about this a while ago. It's based on BACKside, and in fact JerryScript helped thaunknownartist get going on it. I had poor battery life due to the lock screen, but feel free to test it out. You might have better results than I did.

    I might try it out. I guess I'm hopeful that I'll find a rom with a working swype . Thanks for the insight.

    Swype works fine on BACKside for me. Were you having problems with it?

    What problems are you having with Swype? I have absolutely no problems installing Swype beta from the website on BACKside.

    Yes, the q is for quarter. Our displays are 480 x 320, one quarter of 1080p.

    Well, just looked it up, by their definitions we have hvga screens based on the resolution. They list wqvga as 240 x 432, which I haven't seen.

    i installed this ROM on my phone it is GREAT...i like it better then BACKside....i had both....BACKside was still working out some glitches....this ROM comes with two themes ICS and System....System makes Battery, wifi, etc green like regular android...ICS makes that blue and has diffrent background, the only proble i have about this ROM is that when you go into your app draw and turn your phone sideways the bottom row of apps names are cut off...only when sideways its fine vertically. Thats all i can think of!
    UPDATE: i just found a way to fix those cut off icon names from the draw! Just go to the home screen press menu, Launcher settings, Desktop scroll a little bit and check Auto-Fit and hide status bar...you wont have the battery bar time etc but if you want it to fit then you will have to do that and BOOM not cut off anymore

    I JUST HAD ANOTHER IDEA (i get excited for minor things) but since this ROM comes with a second status bar (which got anoying with default settings) you can disable the status bar but enable (if not enabled already) under launcher settings (menu button launcher settings) and press show status bar or "launcher Status" then enable gesture down to show slide down and gesture up to hide it!

    Man, you just got me all worked up to flash a different room! Now I can't wait, but I'm going to have to wait. I'm having a debate with my 5 year old about star wars which he's never seen. So his credibility is nothing! Owned!

    MacFett knows his stuff. The dev used the BACKside ROM then themed it up.
