Thread Closed Email Thread
The project is now continued under CM9 Nightlies. This thread will be kept here for history/reference.


Teamhacksung has been porting ICS (to be CM9) for the Galaxy S and we feel that it has reached a state where it would benefit from public testing. However this is still a very early versions and there will be bugs. Bug reports are allowed in this thread only. Please check the known issues section before reporting a bug. The most minor bugs are welcomed (we'd love to know them, but we may not fix them instantly).

Go to the thread (unaffiliated with teamhacksung) in the General Section for Q&A, General Discussion, Custom Kernels, etc. DO NOT POST THEM IN THIS THREAD.

To report random bugs

Current build
Last build without the problem
Stock kernel?
Current modem
Any other modification you've made to the ROM.
What were you doing
How often does the problem occur?
Attach a logcat
Attach last_kmsg if it's a random reboot (If it rebooted into recovery, get it while booted into recovery. Also get /proc/cmdline.)

ROM: Download from (The nightlies are a continuation of the builds.)
Google Apps: Download from ROM Manager. (Or
Face Unlock: Bundled with Google Apps from ROM Manager.
Google Apps Fixer: MultiUpload / / (md5: af8bcaf5f8158e8e1be7097fc86b6b28)

Google Apps Fixer will fix your problem with not being able to add Google Account or Calendar Sync, but will also reset your Google Apps data. Only flash if you're having problems. If Google Apps Fixer does not work for you, do a factory reset from CWM (or Android Settings) and do not restore system data via TitaniumBackup.

- First time flashing ICS to your Galaxy S (or coming from another ROM)?
  1. Root your device and install ClockworkMod Recovery.
  2. Reboot into Recovery using 3-button-combo
  3. Do a Nandroid backup!
  4. WIPE (wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition)
  5. Install the ROM from internal sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
  6. Optionally install the Google Addon
  7. WIPE again or Calendar Sync will not work.
- Upgrading from CM7?
  1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
  2. WIPE (wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition)
  3. Install the ROM from internal sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
  4. Optionally install the Google Addon
- Coming from onecosmic's ICS build?
  1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
  2. Install the ROM from internal sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
  3. Optionally install the Google Addon
  4. Reboot into recovery and WIPE (wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition)
  5. If radio doesn't work, go back to Samsung ROM and flash from there.
- Upgrading from another build of ICS by teamhacksung?
  1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
  2. Install the ROM from internal sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
  3. Optionally install the Google Addon
Note: The upgrade process from CM7 to ICS is automatic, but downgrading from ICS to CM7 (or restoring Nandroid) requires flashing twice. Once from ICS and again from CM7's recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

My calendar sync isn't working!
Install the latest build and gapps and gapps fixer. If it still doesn't work, wipe your data.

App X isn't working!
Check the list at (unaffiliated with teamhacksung) first and check if it works on other ICS phones. Most likely, it's the application's problem, not ours.

Can I mount the phone as mass storage via USB?
Starting from BUILD12, mass storage is the default configuration (might not apply to existing installations). The below command can be used to change into USB Mass Storage mode. USB Mass Storage mode is always used in recovery.
setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage,adb
If you want to switch to MTP mode use
setprop persist.sys.usb.config mtp,adb
Please reboot after executing the command.

I can't adb into the phone!
Please install Nexus S drivers from Google. (Or Galaxy Nexus's driver in MTP mode)

Can I flash other modems?
You may flash modem packages designed for CM7.

How do I take a screenshot?
The screenshot taking function is built into ICS. Hold volume down + power.

Can I use CM7 kernels?
No, the kernel has modifications to make graphics, camera, data counter and data limit work.

Can I disable LED Notification?
Yes. Untick Settings -> Display -> Pulse notification light.

Maps keeps asking me to sign in even though I'm signed in!
Ignore the sign in dialog and pull down the notification menu. Answer the request for permission. Do this a few times and Maps will work.

How do I enter Galaxy S Settings (Device Settings)?
Type "am start com.cyanogenmod.AriesParts/.AriesParts" from adb. Or starting from BUILD 7, it is available as an icon in your launcher.

How do I enter service mode?
Type "*#*#197328640#*#*" into the dialer.

Is there a Captivate/Vibrant version?
A captivate build from the same source (but with captivate config) is available here. We currently lack a developer/maintainer for Vibrant.

Does this work for I9000B?
No, the I9000B requires a different kernel configuration. A build for I9000B may be added later in the process.

What's working? Why is there only a list of issues?
Everything else not listed are supposed to be working (aside from the usual CM7 bugs). If they're not listed, please post so that they can be added to the list of issues. A list of issues is far more useful from a development standpoint.

Why am I getting notified that my data partition is getting full when I have 1+ GB free?
Your /datadata partition, a smaller partition, is getting full. System automatically clears the cache when the space is low. The problem with "low space" is that you have too many applications installing libraries in /datadata (which can be solved by moving the said app to SD). It's a Galaxy S-specific problem (with our sucky NAND) and thus a general solution cannot be implemented.

I want to install gazillion apps on my phone and /datadata is too small
Run the following and datadata will no longer be used on next reboot. Your phone might become slower though.
touch /datadata/.nodatadata
#teamhacksung-support on freenode for support
#teamhacksung on freenode for development

My adb shell isn't root!
Run "adb root" to restart adb in root mode.

Why is "Android OS" battery usage so high?
It's just a reporting change in ICS. Android OS now includes battery usage from more components than in Gingerbread, the actual battery drain is the same.

What is "Random Offset" during installation?
It's just a harmless message given as a verbose logging due to the new ASLR security feature in ICS. It is not an error.
(NOTE: Newer BUILDs might have it removed.)

What do you mean by "wipe"?
A wipe, unless specified otherwise, means running a "factory reset" from CWM Recvoery. This will clear all your installed apps/settings but will keep your /sdcard in tact.

A cache wipe is the wipe of /cache (which is mostly unused) and will not cause you to loose any data.

How do I get the latest version of Rom Manager without market?
If the bundled version doesn't work, update from

How do I setup Rom Manager?
Menu -> Manual Flash Override -> OK -> Samsung GalaxyS i9000 (MTD) -> ClockworkMod 3.x+

I would like feature X
