Based heavily on TeamICS' work on HeroC, here is some very early initial work on ICS for the HTC Kovsky, AKA Sony Xperia X1. Built from AOSP source, with source available.

This is NOT for the faint of heart, and as far as I know nearly everything is broken right now. Instructions for building are coming soon - meanwhile, source is available at https://github.com/Zorlin with bits from https://github.com/CyanogenMod and https://github.com/TeamICS

Credits:
- TeamICS for all their ridiculously awesome work on Hero/HeroC
- CyanogenMod team, on which some TeamICS work is based.
- IceDroidV2 for the installer and current (slightly modded) kernel/boot.img - see IceDroidV2 thread for appropriate credits and source.

Currently working:
- Boots!

Currently not working:
- Everything else
- ADB

Notes:
boot.img is made from applying the ICS porting guide to IceDroidV2's boot.img

Currently there's a "hack" to attempt to get adb working - I threw in a copy of busybox as /system/bin/sh. Need to work out a better way, since it really didn't work...

I've got a bunch of ideas, but it's late, so... here:

It's really ICS, which is why so little works. Gingerbread kernel for now, though.

Do you really think you have enough background knowledge to get this off the ground? Or is it more of a "lets see what I can do" thing?

Yes and no. I think I can bring it to the same state as HeroC, maybe sans camera, and port hardware acceleration if/when they get it working. Kernel isn't my forte, though. At the moment adb is a major and confusing stumbling block... I'm missing something stupidly simple.

You install IceDroid V2 first and then overwrite it... but no, at the moment this is just for developers and tinkerers.
