I'm reactivating this thread since I cannot talk with samm every now and then to update the OP from this thread here.
It is stable for a daily driver but there are definitely things that doesn't work. For starters, the Hero is too small for ICS since we don't have any GPU posibility. Adreno 130 drivers are oh, too small and too bad for animations on ICS, they suck even in GB and Froyo. Still, the statusbar and fling are much smoother than other android releases because that's how ICS is built. It is more RAM friendly and it looks, well, sexy!
Will try and update this rom when it will be possible. We might jump on the bandwagon of 4.0.4 if I can make it to move faster than it moves right now (yes, I have an experimental build).
If one of you want to join me to develop this rom further, send a PM and I will send you some details about what is in the works, how far it is. I know there are few people that can work on builds here on Hero thread but if we work together, we can pull this out one more time.
FLASH THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR:

ON with the ROM. What has been changed:
- Google Music apk (yes, official google music app); - Explorer.apk - Latest and greatest LV Kernel 1.2+ - Revert to Evtoolbox back from 4.0.3 builds - Set the cpu to scale at 352-672 from startup - Tweaked the build.prop a little (added some experimental lines)
Why this is v3?
Because the memory management inside the kernel (remember, INSIDE THE KERNEL) is tweaked and fixed to nice values in order to allow our hero to better multitasking (you can find these values in my other rom called 1ceCream BEAST Flavor). No need for tweaks in init.d to do the job, no bullshit.
Just plain and simple!
If you are texting someone, sending an email, playing a game, doing something, and you are locking the screen, after unlocking you will find that the application is ON the screen, and is not closed how it is in many other roms for hero. The multitasking with my values is so much better, you will definitely like it!
Overall, I am happy with this release and I hope you will be too! Post me some of your opinion and tell me if it is fast or am I dreaming!
