Known Issues

1. WIFI doesn't work perfectly. You will not be able to see any networks when you first turn it on. Add a fake network manually and the wifi networks will show up. Make sure you assign a Static IP since DHCP doesn't work. Also, network strength doesn't work properly.

Can you please look here? It says ICS behaves funny because of regional sim.

It made front page XDA news here

And thanks for the good work.

    I am currently working on implementing a custom Audio HAL which would eliminate the use of Samsung Audio Libraries.

    The HAL is based on the Nexus S Audio and it has FM Radio "Support" Included which would be useful in the future. Currently the HAL works perfectly except for the Microphone in applications and frequent audio shuttering. If this issues are fixed, we could have an entirely opensource audio implementation.

    After hours of coding, Auto Focus and Touch to Focus works perfectly. :D

    Good news guys. Got the Still Image capture to work. It works pretty fine with 5MP setting and the picture quality is amazing. I need to test in the daylight to see how it works.

    The EXIF info is still not implemented and that would be a headache. I will see to what I could do about it.
