Actually, there is a rush... nothing bad about Locerra, he also has a live and is doing what he can.. but there really is a need for an extra developer to work on this.
If Samsung does not come with an ICS update, and this is our only hope.. then there will never be an good working ICS rom this year. (no flame intended towards Locerra)
I'm to stupid to be an developer, but maybe we can find someone in the other fora to help us out with an ICS update. I have deep respect for Locerra's work here, but he cannot do this in an timely matter in his own.
We really should not say there is a rush, off course there is a rush because all of us would really like to have an ICS update for the 7.7 before it's obsolete.
