HTC Hero and Verizon's very first Motorola DROID are quite outdated, but should they be forgotten? Apparently, some developers think not. The OG Droid has recently received an update to its previous Andorid 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) ROM release that seems to have fixed quite a bit of bugs. From the video the UI doesn't lag as much either.
T-Mobile G2x users weren't so lucky. Thanks to some porting of the official MIUI for the Optimus 2x users of the LG G2x can now enjoy the same awesome ROM. Other than CyanogenMod, MIUI is one of the most popular ROM's available and I'm sure many will be happy to give this a try.
Samsung Galaxy Note. While it's still currently not available in the US or many other parts of the world it still has seen wide adoption with over 1 million sales, and the development community is flourishing. Below we have some Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the 5.3" phone -- tablet -- cutting board.
NOOK Color that was highly hackable and enjoyed Honeycomb before many others is taking the same route with Ice Cream Sandwich. Thanks to a few hard working developers over at XDA the NOOK Color is starting to see new life and 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is coming along quite nicely.
Verizon's Galaxy Nexus already, but the one that clearly stood apart from the rest was AOKP by Roman of RootzWiki. Thus far, his build has been the most stable and speedy while still having all the bells and whistles. Through a ROM Control quicklink within the settings, rooted users can customize their phone with ease and reliability; no need to boot into recovery. And most importantly, this ROM has just reached its first "Milestone". A milestone release aims at fixing all the current bugs, and offers an option for users that don't feel like flashing another .ZIP through ClockworkMod every other day.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich SDK ports and ROM's that are basically unusable but today we've quickly gathered up and flashed a fully functional and stable version of 4.0 ICS thanks to the team at CyanogenMod. What we'll be showing you below is the first look at CyanogenMod 9 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Samsung Nexus S -- and it works flawlessly.
source is available to all we are starting to see a few ICS ROM's appearing for select handsets. This is not a port from the SDK but a ROM built and modified right from the source code. What I have for you today is the highly popular Samsung Galaxy S II running the latest and greatest 4.0 ICS from Google. Remember this is very much an alpha build and not remotely close to being finished -- but it's still fun to use and enjoy as well as show all of you.
