    Um, why wait?
    If you are almost done release ASAP and kill the naysayers while satisfying the masses!

    The thankyous will roll right in!

    Dam, now I got "the money will roll right in" stuck in my head.

    I for one am cool with the file size! I'd like to download it & try it out before you change it to JB, then after you do the extra tweaks to it have that one to. That way we'd get 2 slightly different
    rom /themes....
    Anyway, that's just my 2cents, either way looking forward to checking it out!

    Is it possible for you to release both?

    Why is it these 'woodwork themers' never use testers from the forums they posting on???

    And yes why not just do both??? And why not just release it as a theme???

    Been reading along this thread.. as the ICS jumped out at me, and me planning on purchasing this phone, wanted to know how this was coming along, from everything ive read, this is a cooked rom, not ICS, however, When i first posted on the Opt M forum that i was going to try to build an AOSP ICS rom on Nov 21st 2011, i said int he post i would try to have it up in a couple days. This was my absolute first attempt at compiling anything android, except apps.. i took the learn to program apps route first.. Now a couple days in my ignorance was a joke, but i did have a booting beta up in about 4 weeks.. I also had alot of help from alot of devs, including PlayfulGod and many others, and greatly appreciated their help, and i welcomed their help being a newcomer, and it got me very far int he process. Since then i havent had the time to continue my efforts until recently, almost a year later.. but most oft he problems with building ICS for a GB phone is not in the ROM, its in the Kernel. now there is LG ICS kernel source released, hope has again become a reality. All im saying with this is that yes it is possible to have a beta of ICS up in a few weeks. However, this is unfortionately a cooked rom.. and straight forward answers from the beginning would have aleviated alot of criticism.

    I been saying that to all the 'out-of-the-woodwork devs' that have been popping up lately and none seem to frigging listen or get it. ;)

    Also I dont get why so many are just theming existing ROMs and releasing them as a new ROM instead of just doing it as a theme. ;)

    my guess, not happening, this is the usually the ending when sum1 pops up out of the blue making claims of doing something with no background or history in the android community.

    Now he still might come thru, but I wouldnt hold my breathe. ;)

    I have to admit, I got excited when I saw the OP. Then I started reading. The OP is a newcomer, and while it is possible that he might be some kind of Android genius, his timeframe was nearly impossible.
    That was yesterday. No activity from OP since July 30th.

    Flamez, I'm not trying to put you down here, but you're not instilling much confidence in us. You say you're porting a ROM, yet you don't understand how to flash a ROM or a theme, and you can't figure out how to find the instructions to do either of these. For me, just learning how to root, and flash a ROM &/or theme took ALOT of trial and error. I only (barely) learned how to do any of this by asking a heck of alot of noob questions. (Thanks PlayfulGod, Tokenpoke, & Gbiggie) I would not even CONSIDER porting a ROM.

    If someone wants to point PG over here or someone who knows how to dev...

    The LG Viper on sprint is the sister phone to the Connect, identical in almost every aspect except for the antenna frequencies, and LG has released on their open source site the ICS update to that phone.

    Open Source Main Just search for the LS840 and you'll see it on the next page. It just has to be compiled in Android SDK and tweaked to work on our phone.

    I don't know how to build ROMs but this can EASILY, we should be easy enough to hopefully port over to the Connect for anyone who would like the challenge.

    Easily my ass, I have yet to get LG's Android patches to compile for any of the LG's I've worked on.

    Also they are other differences in the Viper, like its partitions are different, hardware wise, yes about the same.

    Now if/when the viper gets the ota, rooted n then partition dumps obtained, then maybe it can be ported over... that is if the bootloader gets unlocked or bypassed, which will prolly be locked on ics.

    And matter of fact I have had that src for a few days, the kernel wont even compile with their defconfig. ;)

    Ah gotcha, yea I just read up on some people trying to compile it but it would only compile on Linux not on Windows...well hey it was worth a shot throwing this out there cause I didn't see anyone post anything about it on here.

    since when can you compile a linux kernel in windows?

    yea yea yea, we all know how your LG kernel building usually works ;)
