Bunch of other stuff.

There is no ETA for this to be out and I might even get beat by another dev but it will happen sooner or later.

Nice!
BTW I have one BAD news for everyone! There is no Adobe Flash player Support in ICS!

Hmm...does that mean that even the current flash .apk file can't be side loaded on there and work?

I've got ICS running on my Samsung Fascinate. I will have to try this out and see if Flash still works.

Honestly though, over the past year, it's really evident that everyone is moving their video away from flash on over to HTML 5. It's amazing how many sites now have made the transition. Adobe did the right thing and waved the white flag of surrender. It's good they are getting out of the way of innovation.

So no love lost for me on Flash.

I am really enjoying ICS on my Fascinate. There are so many little suddle, yet significant, things in there that really make it great. Hands down, ICS is the king of Mobile OSes.

    @everyone,

    sorry for being quiet but I have been working (See above). I also have a family and it's getting closer to Christmas so I'm busier than ever right now. In fact, I have to leave in a minute to attend my daughters Christmas party at school.

    So, the issues I have been having and the busy family is keeping things held back right now. I'm hoping to have good things coming as soon as I can.

    Please be respectful to one another and don't start any fights. Thanks.

    Extremely alpha build posted in the OP. Don't expect anything to work correctly. WiFi is still not working but maybe someone smarter than me can get it going.

    Yes! YES! YES!

    WiFi now works!!!!!!!!!

    As can be seen in the photos. :D

    I still have lots of work left though.

    By the way. The old version I have posted is a bit different then what I am currently working on. That uses a stock tegra build while this is from a device tree meant for the a500. I still have proprietary files in it right now but once i figure out how to correctly remove them and put them in another location I will post the repo.

    The changes in this version do not require the editing of the source code either. :)


    Special thanks to IcedCube and digetx for their assistance with this.
