This is ice cream sandwich for the Dream/Sapphire. Yes, you read that right. Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. We currently have cm9 and AOKP mostly working. AOSP is next

What works:
It boots
Mobile data
Bluetooth (maybe. It turns on. I don't have devices to test with)

What doesn't:
Hardware acceleration
probably everything else, tell us

Android 4.0.4
latest cm9 source as of 09 Aug 2013
Latest aokp code as of 6 of June 2012



Alpha3 -
Alpha2.2 -
Alpha2 -
alpha1.1 -
alpha1 -
alpha0 -

Alpha2 -
Alpha1 - skipped
Alpha0 -

kernel -
ezterry's kernel + ics patches and some performance tweaks (enabled 710mhz overclock and other things)
ezterry's ezgb 1.5.2

cmtd files

Note: the rom zips are not signed. Flash with clockworkmod, or sign yourself. Once this becomes more usable, I will start signing them.

very slim gapps (there are here for testing purposes. contains copyrighted google code that I am not really allowed to distribute. use at your own risk!)

possible fix for camera:

flashing instructions:
you need to use custom mtd. I used 140 for /system and 20 for /cache (rom currently requires a /cache partitoin. will be fixed in a later update)
1. download all needed files and place them on your sdcard. mtdpartmap.txt needs to be at the root of it
2. flash recovery patch.
3. wipe system, data, and cache
4. reboot into recovery.
5. flash rom and kernel
6. Flash gapps if desired
7. flash boot patch
8. reboot into rom
9. wait.
10. enjoy the awesome

To use data, you need to put in your apn settings. Google to find these.

Thanks to:
Google - android
CyanogenMod team - the awesome rom
Aokp team - aokp
Ezterry and AndDiSa - kernel for ics
Infinimint and the united dev team - hosting and support
My girlfriend - for loving me even though I worked almost all day on this.

Pictures (screenshots later)

Sorry for the blurry pics. Used my other phone running cm9 with a partially working cam

Slim down (in progress)
Mess with hw acceleration and camera (maybe never) - this will be alpha3/beta1 if it happens

Alpha2.2: update to latest code. good cm9 release.
Alpha2.1: not released
Alpha2: fixed audio
Alpha1.1: small fixes (keyboard, other stuff) cm9 only bugfix release
Alpha1: fixed wifi, sdcard, and home button (skiped in aokp)
Alpha0: initial public release.

If you want to build yourself (please do, we need more people fixing stuff), the repo init command will look like this:
$ repo init -u -b ics
Note: rules on using this rom for other projects
Most of android is under the apache2 license. just don't violate that and we're good.

more specific rules: source is on my github, do whatever you want within the terms of the licences. make your own rom, use it to port other devices, release a rom that is exactly the same with a new name and a shiny theme, I don't care as long as you are building from source.
If you use prebuilt anything from releases of this rom, please be nice and send me a pm asking for permission. this is supposed to be an open community, but i hate seeing 20+ cm7 roms with nothing different except name and bundled apps. If you don't ask, and you havent made something different enough from this rom to be worth having its own thread, it may or may not get reported.
