Since I have been lurking and not posting enough to be able to post in development threads, I decided to post here instead.

edit:enough posts to write in dev section, but brainmaster already updated his OP with this information, which is probably the reason you are reading this now.


People are freaking out of the "Random offset XXXX" notification (it is not an error) when they flash an ICS rom in Clockworkmod recovery.

..and so on.

As far as I understand correctly, this is not an error message at all,
but a safety feature implemented in ICS.

So, it might be wise for the OPs to update their first post in any ICS ROM threads to tell people not to be scared.

Thank you koush, brainmaster, kwiboo and frasiscofranco for a very useful ICS ROM and kernel.

Address Space Layout Randomization

Android 4.0 now provides address space layout randomization (ASLR) to help protect system and third party applications from exploitation due to memory-management issues.

Which is exactly the reason I request the developers to notify users of this. I would do it myself, but since I'm still a xda noob, I can't.

Probably want to ask in your phone's own forum.

What if you get random offset during CWM and nothing ever happens?
