Because of all the slowdowns in kitkat, I decided to give ICS another try.

Specs:
-Based on CyanogenMod 9
-With Mackay kernel (updated to 3.0.101, updated governors & schedulers, XL RAM some other nice stuff):
https://github.com/kasperhettinga/sa...ackay-cm9-2014
-TWRP 2.2.2.0

-no 720p possible, XLMem (do not ask for other flavours, I just make a one-flavour option tuned for smoothness)

Download:
https://s.basketbuild.com/devs/kaspe...s/rom/pre-KK//

Gapps:
http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip

This are the latest official gapps. Newer gapps can be found here:
http://forum.xda-developers.om/showp...&postcount=135
(I haven't tested this package, I also don't think latest gapps is relevant, as gapps get updated through Play Store anyway)

Install:
-From existing CM9: install on top + flash gapps
-From any jellybean ROM: you can try to install it on top, but it may result in bootloops, requiring flashing GB through Odin (see below for next steps). Flash ROM. Flash gapps.
-From stock Samsung GB: install CF-ROOT-CWM kernel, or any other CWM containing kernel. Flash ROM. Flash gapps.

You need to flash gapps on every new build, backup/restore of gapps does not work yet!

If you have space issues, you can use a solution to bind /datadata to /data partition:

THIS IS NOT AN ADVICE TO DO THIS! I do not like this solution, as it will slow down your phone (especially with the slow internal memory chip). And it goes against my lean & mean philosophy for this ROM. Therefore: please think well before doing this!

Are there any cherrypicks from CM10/11 or other aosp based builds to this interesting project?

Few bugs:
1. About Phone - CM Upader = FC Settings
2. Preformence = No schedular option

Runs smooth and excellent.

Wow, that was totally unexpected! Thank you very much! @kasper_h I was wondering: does your rom use the older partition layout, that was introduced in ics, which caused datadata to be full, or the jb one? It would be awesome if you switched to the newer partition layout *.*

No, i want to keep the ROM simple and light-weight.

1 will solve in future update
2 ics never had. Requires more than a single patch I believe.

You remember it wrong
ICS always had a small system & small datadata partition, both on the fast Onenand. This was actually the fastest layout I ever worked with. The changes in layout all happened in jellybean. And I will not start using jellybean partition layouts: I strive for speed and simplicity, which fits perfectly with the ICS layout.

@kasper_h I have 3 questions:

1. No 720p support at all or only 720p recording is disabled but 720p playback still works?
2. If there's no Performance->Scheduler option in ICS, can schedulers be selected using other ways?
3. zRAM , KSM are still there ? (sorry I am used to your KK kernel)

Ty!

1. 720 playback should work, but I didn't check and I don't have my phone here now
2. Yes, any cpu tuning app like nstools can be used
3. zRAM is on the to-do list, KSM should already work

Alright then I have a problem though: I can't donwload any apps from the Play Store, also, it won't update itself. The error I get when I try to download something is 403

WOOOHOO!
My dreams came true, it actually happened!

You know, I was testing out CM9 a few times and I noticed huge improvements in smoothness and stuff like that, but the most impressive thing that I realised was that the chrome browser was not lagging at all! I think this means something!

I just have a few questions:
Is it possible to port CMA here? (it's not really necessary, I'm just wondering)
Aaand what about all those super cool features from Omni ROMs? Is there any way to port those? (again it's not necessary at all, I'm just asking)



Anyway I hope the development of this ROM will continue. Going to install this right away!

If you'll continue working on this ROM and we'll continue using it, we can make together the fastest and the best ROM ever made for our SGS, I believe!
