- Based on CyanogenMod 7.1 Android 2.3.7
- FULLY working Camera
- Better WiFi signal
- FULLY working Market (able to search and compatible will all kind of apps)
- Working USB storage mounting
- Ice cream sandwich launcher
- Ice cream sandwich font
- Ice Cream Sandwich AOSP theme
- Ice cream sandwich bootanimation
- init.d script support
- Added Nano text editor, Bash shell
- Further tweaks by using init.d scripts
- Zipaligned with latest SDK to optimize RAM usage
- Added data/app function to install user apps separately
- All apps are up to date as the time of ROM updated

*Notes / Tips:

- Since I was using Zargloub's kernel, some problems/ bugs are kernel related so I can't do anything with it.


Kernel related bugs:
- Unable to boot if SD card inserted [FIX HERE]
- WiFi unable to connect WEP protected network
- Hardware acceleration (That's why you can't play HQ video)
- Maybe more..

- Open 'Auto Mount' app and tick 'Enable SD card Auto-Mounting'

- When first boot into Android, choose 'Default Activity' instead of 'Setup Wizard' to prevent FC

- Go to Settings -> Display and untick "auto rotate screen" to avoid wrong screen orientation

- Go to Settings -> Cyanogenmod -> Display -> UNTICK 'screen-off animation' and everything EXCEPT 0° & 90°

- Go to Settings -> Display -> Animation -> select 'Some animations' or 'No animation', you will get faster phone response

- Go to Spare Parts -> Window animations -> select 'Fast' or 'Off' to get faster opening speed

- If experiencing Wifi problem (unable to connect) try to change your router Wifi settings to WPA/WPA2, WEP WILL NOT WORK

- GAPPS had already included in this build, so no need to flash the zip separately

- GAPPS like Market will NOT showing out if you din't sign in to Google

- You have to remove your SD card before booting NAND or else you will STUCK at the linux screen

- System will be slower when first time boot into Android:
==> Open all apps, sync your phone with Google, then reboot your phone
==> Install 'Advanced Task Killer' or 'RAM Optimizer' from Market to free your RAM after heavy usage

- Go to Theme Chooser and apply ICS theme to enable ICS style effect


Battery Saving Tips:

- Charge your battery until 100% before installing the build, after that go to recovery and 'wipe battery stats' and then install the build.. this will give you better battery performance and calibration

- Close your WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, Data Plan and disable 'Auto Sync' in Account Settings.. with all these steps you can save MORE battery

- Disable 'Auto brightness' in display settings and select your own brightness

- Use any CPU scaling apps or directly from Cyanogen options in Settings to adjust your CPU Max and Min frequency

*Huge Thanks to:

- CyanogenMod
- Zargloub
- Dsixda
- RockoDev

- Wifi performance should be faster now by changing WiFi related lib files.. ( Tester needed for confirming this)

- Added Mobo Video Player Codec
- Updated apps
- New wallpaper (useless )


IceDroid V5

- Updated Beats lib files.. more powerful bass!!
- Added new keyboard from Xperia device
**Experimental because the keyboard is for ldpi screen device so the layout was a little bit smaller on screen, but it's working perfectly

- Main focus on performance more than graphical in this release
- Optimized RAM memory, highest free RAM achieved on first boot 93MB!!
- Better battery life because the processor does not need to load so much heavy proccess from apps.


Apps Replaced:

Go Launcher EX --> Launcher Pro (lower memory usage and faster)
Original Gallery --> QuickPic (super fast picture preview)
Original Browser --> Opera Mobile 12 (faster web browsing)

Apps Added:

Fast Reboot - Free up memory by performing a 'fake' reboot
Mobo Video Player - Supporting more video format

Apps Updated:

Google Music --> Google Play Music
Google Market --> Google Play Store


For those who wants more RAM, search Market for "Auto Killer Memory Optimizer" and "Advanced Task Killer" and install these two apps

Work In Progress :

- USB Storage will stop working in second boot after first time successful connected, means that USB storage will only work ONCE

- I had contacted Zargloub and discuss the problem with him. Zargloub told me that it's NOT kernel problem, however he can't see any critical errors in logcat so we can't locate the problem. I know we can change the system/bin/vold file and also etc/vold.fstab file to make the USB work,
so this will be a workaround and need some time to find a working bin file


IceDroid V4

- Beats audio effect implant into the ROM!! Beats implant+ DSP Manager 'bass enabled'.. now the bass sounds like a BOOM!
- Thanks to RockoDev for the Beats audio mod
- Fixed no sound with music when headset plugged in problem
- Using Zargloub latest kernel ( 1/3 ) which improved battery accuracy and performance and also light value
- Updated Go Launcher EX 2.8.1
- Updated Car Home

- Updated latest SU Binary
- Latest version of busybox installed
-FINALLY FIXED 'App Not Compatible' and also missing some paid apps issue, now you can download or update any Google Apps like Youtube, Gmail.
- All apps are updated to the latest version
- Translated Newding app to BY MY OWN! Now it's 50% in English..
--> suggestion and help in translating the app will be welcome..
- Added adfree host into the ROM, no need to use Adblocker anymore..


IceDroid V2

- Fix the small camera icon
- Removed ICS Launcher and replaced with Go Launcher EX
- Added Go Locker with ICS Locker Theme
- Added "Newding" app to solve missed call rebooting issue
- Fix the wrong name of ICS Theme in Theme Chooser
- Updated OI File Manager to latest version
- Zipaligned all apk files with latest SDK revision 16
- Somehow the ROM becomes faster..


- IceDroid V1 released!!

Mod + Download Section:
Full Wipe Script

Introducing Full Wipe Script for Xperia X1 NAND, originally idea from Sensation forum and mod by jerrytan93 (ME!!)..

The script was packed in a zip file and using updater-script to perform data wiping. Simply go to recovery and choose 'install zip from sd card' and then flash the zip

What will the script do for you:

- Remove old system files from older ROM
- Remove old data files from older ROM
- Remove old system created folders located in SD card, but it will NEVER format your SD card..

Advantages of using this script:

- Save your time, no need to wipe each partition one by one
- FULLY CLEAN all the partitions so that you will get a CLEAN ROM installation (less bugs that caused by old files)

Important Notes:

- Since the script will format your data partition, means that you will lost ALL your user data like Apps, configured settings, account settings.. same meaning as 'Factory Reset'

- This script is encouraged for those user who was having some 'weird issue' that did not happened on other users (including me)

- If you want to keep your user data while cleaning all your phone's partition, you can choose to backup your ROM before applying the script, after that use 'Advance Restore' in Recovery to restore your data partition ONLY

826x WM ROM.. when I saw zargloub was making an improvement with X1 NAND kernel I decided to mod my own ROM, so I use my friend's phone to install NAND with my build for development uses.. the good thing is the reason he buying this phone just because of texting with a qwerty keyboard..
