How smooth is your ICS ASOP build here?
Google Nexus S I9020A / CyanogenMod 10 JB 4.2 / Trinity Kernel
Google Nexus 10 / JB 4.2 AOSP / Stock Kernel




Remember to always thank the developer(s). They are the ones making everything possible.

I'm going to try it in 2 hours at home.
Yes. It works. Flashed alpha6 over alpha4 without wiping. No problem so far.

But from alpha 3 to alpha 6 I can see really big difference in term of smoothness and stability.
I'll use it as my daily ROM only if it will be as smooth as CyanogenMod7 with NEO kernel D

Question Tutorial How to flash Alpha 7! NOOBPROOF

OK, for all you people who are too lazy to read the damn thread or simply don't understand it(no offense) I will write this very noob-proof guide to install alpha 6. This guide is for the I9000 SGS; I’d love to write it for the I9000B, but as I don’t have this device I can’t ensure you everything will work.
Warning, alpha builds are not fully working!! They may contain bugs & have random reboots, by using this guide you accept this. Also I’m not responsible for hard-bricking your phone, which acually shouldn’t happen if you just follow this guide very exactly.

So we start off, ofcourse we need some files & requirements:
- A phone with a custom kernel installed!! This is very important as we need to enter CWM(ClockWorkMod(recovery))!
- The rom itself ( http://ice-cream-sandwich-sgs.google..._r1-alpha7.zip )
- The kernel (http://ice-cream-sandwich-sgs.google...date-i9000.zip )
- SuperUser fix (http://ice-cream-sandwich-sgs.google...fgh-signed.zip )
- 3G fix ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...8&d=1322157965 )
- The ability to read english & set your brain to read & do mode.

OK, now you’ve downloaded all those files and set your brain to read & do let’s start off.
First of all we need to disable your simlock, as ICS will not enable your network with a simlock. If you don’t feel like disabling your simlock, there is no point for you flashing ICS.
To do this we’ll do the following:
1. Go to settings
2. Go to the security tab
3. Click on sim card lock, and disable it.

After you’ve done this you have to make sure your on a JVT rom. Also disable the lagfix.(I’m not going to explain this. Why? Well if you have flashed any custom rom you know how to do this.)

Now hook up your phone to your PC in USB mode, and in the root of your internal storage make a folder called “Flashable zips”. Now copy ALL those zip files you’ve just downloaded to this folder, ALL of them.

After your done we will reboot in recovery, for the beginners a small tutorial.
1. Turn off your phone by holding down the power button and clicking “power off phone”.
2. Wait for your phone to TOTALLY turn off, when it is it’ll vibrate for a moment.
3. Now hold the “Volume UP” + “Home” + “Power” buttons until you see the Galaxy S I9000 logo appear, when the logo appears release the buttons and wait a bit. Now you will be in recovery!

Now we are going to backup your phone, incase you want to return to your old setup. (I will not provide a guide how to return, but as long as you have the backup almost any dev can help you with putting it all back together) Now here follow these exact instructions to backup your current setup.
1. Use the volume buttons to navigate to “backup and restore”
2. Press either the power button or home button to select the option. (the text may disappear depending on your kernel, just re-press the button you pressed to make it disappear and the text will be there again)
3. Now press “Backup” and it will start backing up your phone, this may take a while.. get a coffee.
Check if the backup was succesfull, the recovery will report this in white/orange tekst.

You’ve succesfully made a nandroid!

Now we need to wipe our phone.
1. In the recovery menu select “wipe data/factory reset”
2. Now select “wipe cache partition”
3. Go ahead and go to the “advanced” option
4. In there select “wipe Dalvik Cache”
5. Go back to the menu you were before.

OK, now it’s time to start the actual flashing, again follow these instructions to the letter!
1. In the recovery menu navigate to “install zip from sdcard” and press your selection key
2. Now choose the option “choose zip from sdcard”
3. Navigate to the folder we just made “Flashable zips”
4. In there select “ICS_4.0.1_r1-alpha7.zip”
5. Now navigate to the option “Yes – install ICS_4.0.1_r1-alpha7.zip”
It will now flash the rom.
Does your phone reboot into a blue recovery menu? Just follow the steps again as discribed above ^.

Once we have done this, we will have to flash the kernel.
1. In the recovery menu navigate to “install zip from sdcard” and press your selection key
2. Now choose the option “choose zip from sdcard”
3. Navigate to the folder we just made “Flashable zips”
4. In there select “CM7FuguMod_20111124_update-i9000.zip”
5. Now navigate to the option “Yes – install CM7FuguMod_20111124_update-i9000.zip”

Once it’s done, go ahead and hit the “reboot system now” option.
Now wait for the phone to boot. Take a coffee in the meantime, this can take a while.

Now an important thing!!
Android will comeup with 2 options, first check the box "set as default" then press the FIRST ONE!

When it’s up and running, we need to install script manager. Open up the market and setup your gmail account. Once you’ve done this search in the market for “script manager”, and download & install Script Manager FREE.

We need to flash a 3G fix by WarDrake. It seems the bootanimation is too big and it causes 3G to not work for most of us. Thus the bootanimation needs to be removed. Follow these instructions to flash this package.
1. In the recovery menu navigate to “install zip from sdcard” and press your selection key
2. Now choose the option “choose zip from sdcard”
3. Navigate to the folder we just made “Flashable zips”
4. In there select “enable3gv3.zip”
5. Now navigate to the option “Yes – enable3gv3.zip”
Thanks WarDrake for finding this out!!

Once you've flashed the 3G fix go ahead and flash the superuser fix.
1. In the recovery menu navigate to “install zip from sdcard” and press your selection key
2. Now choose the option “choose zip from sdcard”
3. Navigate to the folder we just made “Flashable zips”
4. In there select “Superuser-3.0.6-efgh-signed.zip”
5. Now navigate to the option “Yes – Superuser-3.0.6-efgh-signed.zip”
When it’s done flashing hit the “reboot system now” option.

Now the 3G script is already included, and you might have noticed a 3G icon above the signal bars, though data still doesn't work. For this part of the tutorial I’d like to thank WarDrake who simplyfied this fix. I’m using his instructions and all credits go to him!!
1. Open script manager and go navigate to : /etc/init.d
2. In here select the script named 99enable3g and open it as a script
3. Now click on the button "help" and select: run as root, run at boot, run on network change. (DO NOT RUN IT)
4. Hit the “save” button.
5. Exit script manager

Once you’re done reboot your device and suddenly….

AAMMMMGGG 3GG NETWORKKZZZ <3

Thanks again to WarDrake for this amazing fix!

If you followed my instructions correctly, you should be running Alpha 7! If it doesn't work you are probably one of The Almighty R’tards and you will have to start all over again, good luck.

Now you’ve all noticed I used the same tutorial everytime, that’s because It’s easier for people to understand, and they will learn how to flash files by doing the same procedure over and over.

Disclaimer,
If you somehow managed to f*ck this up, go to hell and go f*ck yourself.
Mods feel free to remove my disclaimer.

Please look through the F.A.Q before joining IRC and asking the same question over and over.
F.A.Q
Q: AAAMGG MIEE PHONE NO BOOOOOTTT?@!?!?!
A: If you would have read the tutorial you would know that if your phone reboots into a blue recovery menu, you should FLASH THE ROM AGAIN.

Q: My touchscreen doesn't work!
A: Try reflashing the i9000 kernel, though if you are using a i9000b don't flash it.

I don't think hardware acceleration is properly done yet...
Launcher still lags if you enters and exit the app/widget drawer and scroll in the app/widget drawer. Browser is lagging badly if you compare to XXJVT's browser which I think its hardware accelerated. Youtube is having serious problem too :/
