Default we can finally get ICS drivers

Hey Guys, we can finally get ICS drivers if we sign this petition and get more supporters. There are currently 2500+ supporters, so it would be great if you guys contributed by signing the petition like I did (its not hard).

GO TO THIS LINK TO SIGN THE PETITION (PLEASE DON'T SPAM):

If we get enough, Qualcomm may compile the drivers for us so we can get the full ICS rom experience .

DONATE TO ME
Default So...

So I shouldn't care about this new driver, as it is only important for the developers?
I should only be happy, because now there will be better-looking ROMs like CM9 BETA0 based port for Legend , right?

Correct me if I'm wrong, please...

Umm, that's not what I meant lol... Sure you can be happy if you want but the person that will put it to use is the developer to create a rom for you to enjoy.
So you aren't entirely wrong.

As much as we all, the likelihood of him returning back is less than 50%. I think his still looking into GB for Legend in CM.

Well, then you actually know more than I do.

Maintaining the Gingerbread port doesn't mean I'm not looking into possibilities for ICS on the Legend we're just not doing half-done crap-releases. CM is our baby, we treat it nicely.


I'm still here, my Legend's still working and it (and a lot of other CM7 devices based on capable msm7k chipsets) will get an ICS port once a few requirements are off our list of obstacles (quite big list, quite big obstacles).


One of these requirements an Adreno driver for ICS was just recently met and yes, I'm pretty excited about that. Unfortunately there's still one big piece missing (OMX).
.
I don't use the XDA forum regularly any more. Too much distraction, not enough fun. Coding is fun.

If you see me posting I'm most likely disoriented and intended to use G+ or write exceptionally great code in Visual Basic. My G+ profile is actually a good source for random nonsense, unlike this signature which solely exists to divide this post and the next one.

So if you have what you need then you will be releasing it? I thought cm gave on up the legend because it didn't have enough ram.

Glad to hear that your still attempting to compile an ICS rom for the legend
