Default Requesting binary ics drivers from nvidia

Hey guys as many of us are aware, us relying on carriers and handset manufacturers to release os updates is almost pointless. There are many other devices that are ics capable yet won't be upgraded do to carriers and phone manufacturers. What the sgs2 community did was request drivers from qualcomm and they provided. I think with enough community support nvidia will as well. We are one driver away from complete ics goodness, no more crashes or bugs. I searched Google and saw that this community has already contacted nvidia here: http://forums.developer.nvidia.com/d...source-code/p1 and here: http://forums.developer.nvidia.com/d...6?Sort=popular

So let's group together and work as a team to convince nvidia they will be doing a great service to our community, it will only strengthen their presence in the android community by doing so.

Any developers here have suggestions on persuading nvidia to support us and have them notice us? I think their dev forum is a good start, also social media may help. I wonder how many g2x owners are still out there?

lets make our voices heard and finish what we started.

It does not hurt to try, plus it's free.

I tried, but I don't think Nvidia will really care.

Their revunue in 2010 is like 3.2billion..

I don't think our million $ of phone on XDA even matter to nVidia.
