    Google just announced only minutes ago that the source code for Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich is on its way to Google's AOSP tree right now

    Hi! We just released a bit of code we thought this group might be interested in.
    Over at our Android Open-Source Project git servers, the source code
    for Android version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is now available.
    Here's how to get it:Follow the instructions at
    http://source.android.com/source/downloading.htmlCheck out the
    'ics-release' branch:repo init -u
    https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b android-4.0.1_r1
    That's it! However since this is a large push, please be aware that it
    will take some time to complete. If you sync before it's done, you'll
    get an incomplete copy that you won't be able to use, so please wait
    for us to give the all-clear before you sync.
    This is actually the source code for version 4.0.1 of Android, which
    is the specific version that will ship on the Galaxy Nexus, the first
    Android 4.0 device. In the source tree, you will find a device build
    target named "full_maguro" that you can use to build a system image
    for Galaxy Nexus. Build configurations for other devices will come
    later.
    Unfortunately we still don't have our Gerrit code review servers back
    online. That remains our top priority though, and we hope to have them
    back soon.
    This release includes the full history of the Android source code
    tree, which naturally includes all the source code for the Honeycomb
    releases. However, since Honeycomb was a little incomplete, we want
    everyone to focus on Ice Cream Sandwich. So, we haven't created any
    tags that correspond to the Honeycomb releases (even though the
    changes are present in the history.)
