Well actually I just succeeded in booting it up, but there are still a lot of works remained...

It is a AOSP version ICS, I built the uImage from the tenderloin kernel in https://github.com/CyanogenMod/hp-kernel-tenderloin. There is another guy Andrew Boren who is also working on porting in https://github.com/Evervolv-ICS/andr..._hp_tenderloin, and my work is generally based on that.

You can see the screen shows "Unfortunately, System UI has stopped." Touchscreen is not working so there is nothing I can do except force shutting it down... But it still means that the booting is succeeded, screen is working, and I am happy to see that I can make such progress in only four days...

However when I shut it down and restart it, the system became stuck in booting and started looping the booting animation, which is very weird. I reinstalled the rom and it went back to normal, but I then restarted it and it went stuck again... Maybe there is something wrong in the BoardConfig.mk, I will try to figure it out in tomorrow...

I don't know whether I can fix that problem before the new year, I have to go to Birmingham to see a girl from 23th to 27th..... And I also need to keep on my current research works in the department, so my spare time is very limited.....

So don't hope too much on my works, there is nothing I can guarantee about, and I believe CM9 will be published before I can finish porting ICS, yeah.....

More devs working is never a bad thing.. but since you are interested, it might be worth contacting the CM team, to see if you can be of assistance there, since they too are working ICS>

Where do you get the files that you'd normally get from 'extract-files.sh'? Do you get them from other devices with similar hardware?

I haven't used extract-files.sh, but the ko files from the second github link there.... But it seems like only the screen is working so I might need to find other ways to make my device work.

I found out the problem of booting, looks like the data folder has something bad inside, but I can't be sure as I don't have any debugging tools for porting work. I have to say I am quite new in doing this job....

Thanks for the reply. I just stumbled on https://github.com/Evervolv-ICS/android_vendor_hp and
https://github.com/Evervolv/android_..._hp_tenderloin , so that should get me going.

Thanks for the link, I am looking at it right now
By the way, the guy who is working on it should be @Preludedrew.

Hi, maybe you get something from this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1403859

It's for HTC Sensation (MSM8260, Adreno 220, ICS 4.0.1)
Maybe some some parts are usable
