Default [DEV][WIP][ROM]ICS For X8 Alpha 9 *STOPPED*

As we all know, Stelios97 made a working port of ICS for the X10 mini. fifo171 has tested the same rom on his X8 and has confirmed that it works for the X8 as well. This thread is to further develop this rom so we X8 users can have ICS. On the 27th November 2011,troufiniou and has further developed this rom ! Thnx guys !

Notice :In this thread, we'll be focusing on troufiniou's releases. If you would like to try stelious97's rom, the link is provided below but i don't think i will be posting his releases as he is developing for the x10 mini and not the X8, whereas troufiniou is with us in the X8 department. Please do not ask for ETA's and I will not tolerate posts like "when will be ready 100%, when will be stable and etc". Also, if anyone disrespects the thread, not counting if they are disrespecting devs or normal users, you will be reported and hopefully banned ! You have been warned. Also, troufiniou and n1kolaa are working around the clock to get the ICS port working for us, so please show some respect and do not make demands be thankful we even have devs helping us !

Thanks goes to stelios97 for the x10 mini ics port and for helping with the x8 rom, nobodyAtall, alfsamsung and doixanh (also for helping with V007 II ) for their awesome kernels, fifo171 for testing on X8 (stelious97's rom), troufiniou who is currently developing this rom and to all the ICS testers as well as those who PM-ed me asking if they could help. Thanks guys !

stelious 97's thread

troufiniou's thread

Requirements:

[Stock kernel fix for V007 II and below] - Download this, extract the two files and paste them in system/bin and flash the rom (if asked to overwrite anything, just accept and click yes)
unlocked bootloader (Optional but highly recommended)
custom kernel : nAa kernel/alfs kernel/linuxdx kernel
rooted phone
latest firmware and baseband (xxxx015)


What's Working:
Touchscreen (Cypress users- stock kernel only with V008)
Charging
Hard buttons (Thnx to tony-noob )
Vibrate (With the nAa/alfs Kernel)
Sound (???)
SD Card Readable (V005)
LED (V005)
GSM (V005) (Can recieve calls and SMS but cant send sms and make calls )
Brightness (V005)
SMS

What isn't working :
Pretty much everything else

Installation Instructions:

(BEFORE TRYING, I SUGGEST TESTING YOUR PHONE TO SEE IF YOUR PHONE USES CYPRESS OR SYNAPTICS DIGITIZER)
*Download THIS
*Extract contents and select "checkts .cmd"
*Make sure USB DEBUGGING is enabled on your phone
*Connect your phone to your PC but do not mount SD CARD
*Let the CMD run and it will state if Cypress or Synaptics was detected

Unlock Bootloader
For advanced users
For n00bs like me

Flash nAa kernel/alfs kernel/ linuxdx

Place rom on your sd card

Go to CWM Recovery

Full wipe

Wipe data

Wipe cache

Flash rom

Done!


DOWNLOAD LINK :

V009

V008

V007 II

V006

V005

V004

V003

V002

V001

Diclaimer : I can't be held responsible if this rom bricks, destroys or screws up your phone flash at your own risk ! ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING !!!!!! If you do have problems, PM me and I'll help

Video was done by jahlovePL thnx mate

Screenshots by 72andrew72 thnx bro !

Primary objectives : Fix network coverage, wifi, bluetooth, camera, basically everything and compatibility for cypress users (hang in there guys)

If you're not happy with this rom, simply full wipe, wipe cache, wipe data and restore your backup ! As for the kernel, you can use any kernel you prefer.

P.S.

1. I am not a developer. I am merely providing info and links based on troufiniou's progress. All credits go to the devs and the testers.

2. This rom only works with synaptics digitizer users. Cypress users will have to use stock kernel fix (read the requirements section - 1st post) along with v008 for now

3. Please read the 1st page before asking useless questions or making stupid complaints !!!

4. In V008, there were complaints of users unable to access their recovery modes ! Here's the fix by ThePCGuy Thnx mate ! http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1216

Please, if you can help us, PM us and inform us that you can help to lessen our burden. Do not be selfish. Put it this way, the more hands we have working on this project, the faster you can expect ICS on your X8's I'm already recieving a lot of PM's asking if they can help ! THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT !

Let's all have a blast with this !

Move on mean's for you change the phone?
