INTRODUCTION
Now that Fattire has lifted his request that everyone build their own zips, I've decided to make available the nightly builds I've been generating. I've got an OS X system cranking out a new build every night at midnight, so there will always be an up to date zip available!

Credit for this rom goes to Fattire, Dalingrin, keyodi, nemith, arcee and the the other hard working people over in the development thread, as well as the the CyanogenMod developers and anyone who's done work on the Nook Color. I wish I could list everyone by name but there's so many great people who've made contributions I can't even begin to do so. I'm just building zips from the source; we'd be nowhere without the contributions these great developers have made to this community.

As nighty builds, these zips may not always work. I'll try to remove any zip found to be broken, but you know the drill: All files provided here are to be installed at your own risk. I'm making built zips available, but no warranty is expressed or implied by the hosting of said zips. I'll provide what support I'm able to, but that doesn't mean that there aren't potentially unknown bugs. If you have questions, you should check the development thread or try the #NookColor IRC channnel on irc.freenode.net.

As posted by Fattire slightly further down, anyone feeling adventurous should definitely consider building from source rather than downloading the built zips. Here's his two cents:
Want to build ICS from raw source code yourself?

It may be a good learning activity, and will certainly make you more self-sufficient. Hundreds have built ICS for Nookcolor successfully, and understanding the process will make you an Android ninja-- PLUS you can try features and bug fixes as-yet-unaccepted-into-the-mainstream build.

Take a look at:

However, if you're not quite sold on setting up a development environment but you still want to try the goodness that is Ice Cream Sandwich, proceeed on down to the...

DOWNLOADS
Without further ado: The Ice Cream Sandwich zips!
Ice Cream Sandwich Nightly Builds.

The rom does not include the google apps, so you can/should flash the lastest version of those, which is available here.

Finally, I've hosted a few flashable zip files to make small tweaks to the rom. These are all located in the misc. folder on my server. Below is an explanation of each zip and its purpose.

MISC FOLDER INFO

If you notice that some apps are missing from the market, this may be due to the fact that these ICS builds for the nook do not include support for apps which request phone permissions. Although this ideally would be fixed by developers not requesting phone permissions for their app unless it absolutely needs to be phone-specific, you can also fix it by flashing the telephony-permissions-fix.zip file located in the misc folder. You will likely want to flash this file immediately after flashing your rom.

Secondly, if you prefer the old bootanimation from the galaxy nexus, you can also flash the fix-bootanimation.zip located in the Misc. folder, which replace the new CM9 animation it with Homer_S_xda's fixed version. Thanks to Homer for the fix!

NOTES ON INSTALLING TO SD
I've fixed Verygreen's sd installer image to work with ICS -- you should no longer have to flash SP1 first, or rename the gapps to gapps-gb. If you test out this image, please let me know how it works for you! More recently, Leapinlar has stepped up in helping to fix the image further, increasing its size to allow for the larger size of the new nightlies. Thanks to him for his help -- It's available for download here. Huge thanks to Verygreen for helping me to figure out what needed to be fixed -- in the words of HacDan, "He's not just super helpful, he's a genius". Once you've got the new image, you can use Verygreen's original instructions from his thread on SD Installs, replacing "cm7" with "cm9" where necessary.

IN CONCLUSION
Please remember to thank the developers working on this project, as they've done seriously awesome things for us in an amazingly short amount of time. If you have questions/comments specifically regarding my zips, please post them here, but if you have more general questions regarding Ice Cream Sandwich on the NC you may want to head on over to the development thread. Finally, if you're really enjoying the rom I'd strongly recommend that you try setting up a build environment and building your own zips -- even though I'm making prebuilt ones available they're no substitute for the experience gained by getting familiar with the build process yourself, and Fattire has done a great job of making it an extremely accessible and rewarding project.

Brilliant work! I upgraded from CM7 and all my existing apps that ive checked worked no problem, it kept all my settings too! Speed-wise I would say its very close to CM7, i use ADW EX in preference to trebuchet, and it just flies!

One thing ive noticed is that NFS shift doesnt behave properly when using the tilt sensor to steer, its axis sensor wants the tablet to be in portrait orientation when the screen is in landscape. Hard to know if its the games fault or the sensor. If thats all there is to complain about this early in the development then the future looks promising :)

Dual boot ?

I currently have a dual boot environment setup so I can boot into stock (primary boot partition is currently CM7). Does anyone know if this still supports that ? Anything specific I'd have to do with the install then ?

TIA

I just want to point out for the sd-card users using verigreens 1.3 boot image to setup cm7 to run off of sd card and retain stock for various reasons.

That process will also work for ICS/cm9. Currently, you need to flash update-cm-9.0-0-encore-emmc-sneakpeek1-fullofbugs.zip first. It's found in the ics/cm9 dev. thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1370873

Then, flash Samiam's nightly builds otherwise you will get stuck in a boot loop right now.

Ok just tested it and it works great.

Youtube works just not HQ, although I have to admit that for non HQ the quality and smoothness is very high.

Flash Player doesn't work but I think that has to do with 3D H/W acceleration.

Maps wifi location doesn't work allthough it did work on the normal version of the gapps so something is amiss there.

And I am also experiancing alot of hyper sensitivity especially when using two finger actions.

Otherwise all is well.

What version of the gapps did you have where the wifi location worked? If you link me to that I can see if there's something missing from my gapps zip.

Hey,

awesome awesome work, thank you very much!

I have a slight problem with the GApps, though: I came from update-cm-9.0-0-encore-emmc-sneakpeek1-fullofbugs and just updated over that with some ics-apps installed. Unfortunately, I do not remember which ones.

Now after the update all my apps are there, but the home screen wiped (not so bad), but my Google Account vanished and I cannot add a new one. Neither in the Settings, nor by opening GMail, Talk, whatever. These will just crash.

Any suggestions?

Thanks again for all your work and energy, I really appreciate that.

Greetz,
Felix

    It seems that a while back my build system broke for some reason, and I just haven't ever had time to focus on getting it back in working order -- I've started a new job and am going back to school, so I think at this point I'm just going to officially discontinue this project and leave you guys in Eyeballer's well qualified hands. Thanks to everyone who used my builds -- this was a fun project for me and I hope you all enjoyed it too.

    So I've fallen off the forum a bit in recent weeks/months, but it's summer now so I'm back! In the interest of trying to bring this thread back up to date with the new developments, I've FINALLY gotten around to making a change I'd been meaning to make for a long time now -- my builds will now clobber after uploading each nightly to the server, so every one will be a clean scratch build. Hopefully this'll get rid of any issues that may have been kicking around from reusing the code.

    EDIT: I also want to thank those helpful posters -- I have leapinlar primarily in mind but there's too many to name individually -- who have been tirelessly providing user support and keeping this thread alive. You guys are a great help to the community!

    I'm sorry, but the poster who comes into a ROM build post for the Nook Color in the Nook Color development section of XDA and says they have dumped it for a Fire because the Fire is faster (duh it has a dual core processor and was released a year later than the Color), is the troll.

    Mods you can remove this whole string of off-topic posts started by the troll.

    Done... Carry on folks!
