ICELite is designed to be fast, lightweight and stable ROM ready for everyday's use. As usual, this is a BETA release, and I'm not responsible for any herp in case of derp or durr.

ICELite beta1

This ROM is a pure AOSP experience without any bloatware. If you need Timescape/Whateverscape, please use the SEMC ICS beta ROM. I am not taking any feature requests - this is going to be barebone Android 4.0.3 without any addons. If you need battery mod/wallpaper/xyz support - please click here

- Wifi Direct app
- Latest Trebuchet launcher
- 0%-battery friendly
- HDMI + FM Radio
- gapps base included (you may download all necessary Google App from the market)

- I haven't had enough time to port AOSP incall screen, so I included my custom one (thanks SEMC)

- setting animation scale to 0.5x (or even disable if you don't need eyecandy) improves overall speed/smoothness a lot




Whats Different from Arc Port?
1) Sony Default Camera Included and removed ICS Camera. If u want ICS camera download from Market
2) Removed Terminal Emulator and WifiDirect
3) Face Lock Working and Video Call on Gtalk Working..
4) Added File Manager and Android FlashLight
5) ICS Sounds
6) Tweaked and Modded to have same or more performance experience as Arc Users..


Bugs in v4 Stable:
*There is a Bluish Circle on top edge while watching Videos in Portrait Mode...

VERY IMPORTANT Instructions:

Please Follow these STEPS exactly otherwise you wont be able to Boot the ROM. If you have Sirkay's Kernel Flashed, you dont need to Flash kernel. just Flash Directly via Recovery...

1) Download the ROM and save on SDCard.

2) Turn off Phone and Enter into Fastboot Mode . ( Attach USB to PC while keeping Volume UP Pressed)

3) Flash the Kernel from HERE. (It has Built-in Recovery; Thanks to Sirkay for this one). Once Again If you already have Flashed Kernel by Sirkay then YOU DONT NEED TO FLASH AGAIN)

4) Turn on Phone, Enter Recovery. If you are coming from other ROMS do Factory Reset/Wipe Data... If coming from Previous version of ICELite you can just Flash the ROM but If if you have Lags or issues I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Full Wipe/Factory Reset...
(This Rom wont Boot if you use Recovery from your present Rom or using Stock ICS Kernel ... You have to flash the Rom with Recovery in Kernel.

5) Reboot... Have Fun...


Please Read NEW Instructions before downloading these

1) Version 4 (Stable)

KERNEL with CWM (by Sirkay) (Kernel)-Must be Flashed if you don't have it already

ADDONS: (Compatible with Both Versions)
1) Nexus Boot Animation WITH Sound OR WITHOUT Sound

2) Galaxy Nexus OnScreen HW Keys (Thanks to kormatoes) See ScreenShotBelow. To Remove the OnScreen Keys Flash THIS

3) Custom Incoming caller Screens (Thanks to kormatoes).. (will upload Later)

4) Toggle Widgets and 1% Battery Mod and Icon
Although Toggle Widgets and Batt Mod are from JJROm but they are fully functional on ICELite..

Thanks to
kormatoes for Addons and Tips

So guys here are some Tips and Fixes for you


For those who cant get GSM DATA to work, Just Flash from Downloads


add your APN..APN Settings have been removed from this ROM. Download apn-conf.xml file and open it directly in Browser or with Notepad. Search your Carrier Name in List and Add exact Settings Data>Apn in Settings)

2) Work around for Messaging Led not working when Screen Off:

Download SMS Notifier... Awesome light application specific for messaging only with options of changing led color for messaging notification... Remember to turn off Notifications on ICS Messaging otherwise you will get dual notifications... It will solve led notifications when screen is off...

3) For FaceBoook Sync of Contacts

Download Foursquare Sync OR Friends Sync from Market and Sync you FaceBook contacts with it in Accounts and Sync in SETTINGS..

4) For Notification Counters on Messagin Icon and for Calls
Download Widget SMS Unread Notification from market.
Both are free and might be helpful...

Flashing now - looking forward to it. Thanks!

Also, on the SE ICS Beta, I used this method for installing CWM to the /system partition:

I've no reason to think it wouldn't work on this one.
