Default ICS Has Been Ported to the Nexus S

That's great news! That gives everyone some sort of hope for a port of course once rooted. The article can be found at Engadget.

It looks like a SDK port. It ain't the real deal but its cool, can't wait to get a port for the Amaze 4g

SDK or not I would love to play around with it even though its not fully functional. Its cool just to know that someone already ported it. I would love to see the port run on both the GS2 and Amaze. We definitely have the hardware to support the software.

On paper we have even better hardware than the GS to support running ICS.

The GN is actually using the Nexus S gpu according to Engadget. Isn't the Nexus S gpu inferior to ours (Amaze 4g and Galaxy S II)?

This is how you port ICS. It worked for some people.

Remember this we don't have a kernel so it'll be impossible to boot it on the amaze now . Once we get kernel then we could get porting & remember it's only a SDK so there will be no calling , texting or anything for that matter .
