Please keep in mind this is a work in progress and is currently intended for devs only. Do not flash if you don't know what you're doing.

Ok, after making some progress towards getting this thing ready for user-space, I've decided to finally start a thread on it just to see if I can get anyone interested or willing to help... This ROM is currently in below Alpha status (if there is such a thing) and does not boot, but I believe I can get it booting in about a week barring a system crash or a zombie apocalypse. Again, this is only meant for a jumping off point towards getting AOSP ICS on our I957s, so don't blame me if you flash this and your tab becomes bricked...

ICS for i957?
I'm ready to test when you have a bootable ROM! Where are you getting ICS-compatible hardware drivers for the i957?

Thanks

Thanks

Base drivers can be used from the msm8660 ics source code provided by Code Aurora, and proprietary can be used from the stock Honeycomb firmware. Hopefully.

1. THANKS JO!
2. In order to boot, what is needed?

I'm assuming this is a CWM zip, not an odin package, right>
