Today, 12 August 2012, marks the end of this project. It is the date for the Final Release of ICS.

I have been sharing my CM7/CM9 builds for some time in my UNOFFICIAL thread. I decided to start my own thread as I am slowly moving away from stock CM9, with both changes in the ROM and in the kernel.

About Cyanogen: CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

If you run into errors, I may not be able to solve it!

If you know a solution to a problem, either upload it yourself to Gerrit Code Review or contact me through pm.

The ROM is based on CM9 with the following changes:
-Mackay Kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=28149309
-Set of cherries picked from gerrit (see change-log for up-to-date information)
-Some patches I did myself to the source code (see change-log for up-to-date information)

Feature request are OK, but remember:
1. I try to stay close to stock
2. I will not include additional apps, unless they can be build from source
3. The time I spend on features depends on how much I like them myself

Post 2 will contain change-log.

-stratosk/DerTeufel/Mialwe for the inspiration I got from their kernels
-rootax for providing a high-speed server for high quality downloads

Mackay kernel ICS Final
Mackay Kernel source: https://github.com/kasperhettinga/sa.../mackay_kernel
Separate kernel download & kernel changelog: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...09&postcount=1
The ICS Final kernel comes in 4 flavours (regular - added to this ROM, XLmem (extra RAM at the expense of 720p recording), and Voodoo Colour)

Sources have been synced after release of CM9-stable. So this ROM is based on the stable code of CM9 plus the addition described in this post.

For users that like liveOC, there is a mackay kernel version 0.41.
Mackay kernel 0.41 download: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/69000552/Ma...ernel_0.41.zip

If you come from a non-CM9 ROM, you should do a full wipe. The Mackay-ROM itself is non-wipe. In case you come from a non-CM9 ROM or decide to do a wipe before flashing, you have to flash a gapps package to be able to use the google applications (like Google Play). Download-link to the most recent gapps: http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip
Dissappearance of gapps has been reported, also for non-wipe updates. Flashing gapps again after installing the ROM is a safety precaution that should prevent any issues.

A ROM to the kernel - or other way arround.

Will you update this ROM on a daily base, like you did with your former nightlies?

Depends on how often something interesting is merged. It will therefore not be daily builds. Aiming at 1-2 builds/week

This is a very odd bug. Not only with location, but if you scroll up-and-down several times you get different settings double...

If this didn't happen in stock, it may be related to the touch-focus setting I picked. I'll take a look at the code.
