At Bio if you can put the link of the Q&A thread on the first post mate i would appreciate it..As that way we can direct people on the other thread and ask any stuff they want there if that is ok.. Thank you again
Yes there is a difference between the AOSP and Samsung ROMs, the Samsung ROM (when it comes) will come with the Mali 400 driver fully integrated into the kernel. Until that ROM comes out, any attempt to get ICS working will involve hacking a honeycomb Mali 400 driver into ICS in order to get it working. Apparently this is easier to do now the AOSP for ICS has dropped, easier that is than trying to port from the SDK. Obviously it would be much easier if Sammy released an official version of ICS but then this thread would be obsolete and we'd all be using some flavour or other of the official Samsung ROM.
Bottom line is, any chance of us getting a working ICS ROM before the official samsung release is down to these guys hacking a driver, probably the honeycomb one from the new Galaxy Tab 7 plus, into AOSP ICS.
If I am wrong on any of the above points please feel free to correct me
