- Ice Cream Sandwich from CM9 Source

Special Credits to
  • cayniarb, Rapmv78, rmcc, shaky156 & texasice/drewis and more.
    Also to the CyanogenMod team whose source this ROM is based on.

    Any donations should go to the people on this list.

Also thanks to
  • Meaple and xxsashixx for hosting download mirrors
  • BigWhoop for lending me time on a much faster compile server

  • If your phone boots fine the first time after flashing the ROM, but get stuck on boot after the first reboot. Remove battery or press "Vol-down+trackpad+power" and hard-reboot the phone. After this it should work just fine.

Missing Features
  • Stable Video Recorder (The correct hack works, but needs a bit of work)
  • The CM9 source is still under development. Some things will be missing, and others might at times be unstable. Do not post questions about missing CM stuff or empty settings placeholders. And remember that this ROM, like the source it's based on, is not a final release.

Bug Reporting
  • This is how you do a proper report on a problem. Do not go to the thread and write "My phone does not work". It is useless information that can be used for absolutely nothing other than for us to respond "To bad".

    Instead you should provide proper information about what your issue is about, how/when it happened and possibly provide a logcat and/or partition/mount information when this seams needed.

    We do not have access to your device, we cannot see what you see, so without proper information we have no way of knowing or finding out what caused your problem. Only you have the possibility of accessing the necessary information.

Known issues
  • Device seams ded. It does not wake when pressing the buttons?
    1. Go to Settings->Performance->Processor and change Governor to SmartassV2
  • Certain apps does not show in app drawer?
    1. Go to app settings, locate your missing app, force close, delete data/cache and reboot.
    2. Type "fix_permissions" and reboot.
  • Some google apps gives permission problems?
    1. Look for a notification about granting permission, grant this and restart the app. Some times 2 or 3 restarts are needed.
  • Market download problems?
    1. Open app settings. Go to Market, force close, clear data/cache, reboot to recovery, clear dalvik-cache.
  • Market payment problems?
    1. Delete your credit card information for your google account and re-add them.

  • This ROM needs at least 180mb on the /system partition. Best choice would be AplhaRev Data++ as it leaves some space on /data as well.

  • Do not restore app data from old Gingerbread backups (APK's are OK but not the app related data)
  • Titanium backup can produce problems when used to restore apps. Make sure that this is not the case before writing bug reports
  • Do NOT setup your sdcard (Fat32) partition using CWM Recovery. This will produce a lot of different problems along the way do to a bug in the recovery. Use 4EXT Recovery instead
  • The sd-ext partition should be no more than max 1.5GB in size. More than this can produce issues

A2SD Scripts
  • Mounts2SD
    • This is a highly costimizeable script that is made to work with any type of device with any type of ROM. It comes with both shell controlls and a GUI Settings menu with the native settings of this ROM

      You can use the commad "m2sd <command> <value>" to alter configurations from the shell. Use "m2sd help" to get all available options.

      The GUI Settings menu can be located at Settings->Performance->Mounts2SD

      Mounts2SD Home

Kernel & Ramdisk
  • If you flash another kernel, do not flash an entire boot.img but only zImage. Otherwise you will break Wifi among other things as this ROM is build with custom modifications to the dhcpcd control which is build-in to the ramdisk.

KSM Memory Management
  • Do to heavy memory load with OpenGL support, it is recommended to activate KSM to reduce the memory usage and avoid problems like random reboots.

    This is done by going to "Settings"->"Performance"->"Memory Management" and check "Kernel samepage merging"

    You can also activate zRam if you still encounter low RAM issues

Over the last couple of days I have received a lot of credits for this ROM, which is great and makes the time and effort worth it. However it would be very wrong to except these alone as I am not doing this all by my self. Credits should also go to every developer modding and fixing stock source. The CM team for their great work in making the Android Framework what Google should have done a long time ago. Kernel developers trying to back-port drivers that vendors refuse to deliver. Devs porting hacks for camera, UMS and more. But also people contributing in any other way that they can, like providing mirrors for the ROM's, spending time flashing unstable products to provide helpful bug reporting and a lot more. To put it simple, any type of contribution. Without this type of community, custom ROM's would not be worth the time it takes to download. No single person can do all of this by them self.

He's repacked an existing ROM, not made a new ROM. No one has made a CDMA ROM (maybe there was one guy in the early alpha stages, but he didn't get very far), so there is no base to repack from...

At some point he will change the app to start in the background on boot. But right now it pops up in the front and in the notification bar on every single boot. I don't like that and I packed/changed this ROM to my own liking. The 1.1.1 version works just as good as it is the same hack used in all. Only the behavior of the actual app has changed. And it is not all that difficult to open the app manually when you need UMS activated.

Not sure that it does not work. I'm not sure about the differences of the Bravo and BravoC, but properly just the kernel. Try flashing the ROM and then find a Gingerbread CDMA kernel and see what happens. You could go to oxygens forum and find the Thalamus kernel. Used that in the first couple of alpha version of this ROM with great success.

If not, the shell will not work proper (inc init.d script like mounts2sd). It should run itself on first boot, but it doesn't for some reason. Will take a look at it after I get some sleep, but for now a manual execution of one of the scripts will work.

Do i run these commands for adb or terminal emulator?

Just delete /system/etc/mounts2sd.conf and /system/etc/init.d/10mounts2sd and it is gone

The best is to run /system/bin/busybox_install from adb before rebooting after flashing. If you reboot then you can /system/bin/ from adb or terminal editor. The difference between them is which sh binary they use. the *.sh will not work until the ROM is booted.

I will have this working automatically some time to day I hope.
