This rom is built from CM9 source with device and Hardware trees based on Evervolv's. There are NO other customizations to this rom, just pure AOSP and CM9.

NOTICE:
** This CyanogenMod build is highly experimental and unsupported. Many things may be broken. I offer no guarantees as to this working at all on your phone.



What Works
  • Hardware Acceleration

  • LED notification, Rotation, etc.
  • Panorama
  • Barcode scanning
What Doesn't
  • Camcorder

Instructions
  1. Download the rom and Gapps from below
  2. Reboot into recovery
  3. Make a backup! Don't blame me if you install this and can't go back.
  4. Wipe data/Factory Reset
  5. Under Mounts/Storage, wipe System
  6. Install the rom
  7. Install Gapps
  8. Reboot
  9. Enjoy

Older releases
All

NOTICE - HWA is included with the latest KGSL drivers, so the only kernels that work are the stock kernel and others built specifically for the drivers. This includes the latest Incredikernel HWA Beta and mamarley's Beta kernel
Incredikernel HWA Beta 2 can be found here.
mamarley's kernel can be found here

What's New
  • New KGSL drivers for smoother HWA
  • Many behind-the-scenes updates for a much smoother experience

Unofficial Changelog
CM-Nightlies Kang

Credits
  • The CM team for CyanogenMod
  • Evervolv for the device tree, and getting ICS to where it is on the Incredible
  • The Tiamat team for the kernel source and HWA

My Github can be found here.

Flashed and playing with it. After 15 mins, so far so good. Thanks for the up. Like most others here, I've been anxiously waiting for Cm9 on the Inc.

Wouldn't happen to have a link to the github device tree, would you? I've been meaning to work on CM9 for the inc, but haven't had much time (or a spare inc, really; I kind of need the one I got for work and can't take it out of commission).

Thank you so much. I'm suddenly hopeful again, and I'm not overstating it, that we will see CM9 on the Incredible. I was giving up on it, and bummed as hell.

The tree I'm using is from Evervolv, here. Specifically this, with a few changes. I'll have my changes up on Github hopefully later today.

Please forgive my ignorance as I've only recently started researching ICS ROMs for my Incredible, but the other ICS ROMs - abduction, kang, etc. - don't have true HWA, correct? What HWA they have is the result of creative work-arounds by resourceful devs, right? Does this ROM have true HWA? And although they were only recently released, has anyone had any success with the official Qualcomm drivers for the Adreno 200?

Thanks. :)

My understanding is that these ROMs do have "true HWA" but it's still being improved upon.
