Idk if its google's marketing technique but what i know is the fact that this ics and the nexus s are not fake and we are.getting somewhere now! Maybe google themselves sold this on ebay for marketing and to keep the final version safe they installed a indevelopmant version of ics in the phone!

hit thankxx if i helped.sent from my mind through telepathy (ya its possible)!

Last house on the block
from eyc: "You cried out that you were "probably" going to leave XDA over some trolls. Perhaps leaving is the best option for you, since trolls on an open forum hurt your feelings so much.

Also, and being quite frank, no one gives two ****s that you are going to leave. Honestly, no one.

Every time you post again in that thread or anywhere on XDA, your credibility and your empty threat deteriorates and you look like an idiot.

Threatening to leave XDA....hahhaha...that's rich."

ouch

First off, I'll vouch for jcase in any situation.

Second, I've seen the kernel binaries, and though I don't have a Nexus S to try it on, it appears to be a Linux 3.0.1 based kernel, built on August 15.

Do you know of any Android version that isn't ICS that runs on a Linux 3.0.1 kernel ?

So....it seems like it is ICS (In my opinion, this was caused by google...) The UI is similar to GB with some HC... I hope to see improvements in the background, that is what really matter.

THE Chainfire himself believes. Trolls, got anymore doubts ?
Don't get me wrong, normally I'd take Chainfire's word in a heartbeat. But some things still seem off to me.
1) IF this was a developer build (I'm assuming it is since it's ICS on an older phone rather than a newer one) why would the Android version be listed as "Ice Cream Sandwich?" Google doesn't do that now with their PUBLIC releases. Why would the developer device suddenly be super mom-friendly?
2) That voicemail notification occurs in COMMUNITY built AOSP ROMs. Stock Android phones (like the Nexus devices) do not have that issue. It seems unlikely that Google borrowed CM's code to the point where they couldn't get rid of the small nuisance that plagues AOSP ROMs.
3) While my post history will show that I'm every bit for helping newbies (to the point of yelling at people who think just saying "wrong section n00b" is the best course of action), but he seems...especially dense; yet knowledgable at the same time. It took him FOREVER to follow BASIC instructions, yet he knew to come to XDA to say what he had found. He is apparently very new or not particularly experienced with Android, yet he somehow realized that he was holding the next version of Android and leaked it to Engadget.

Not saying it isn't ICS. There are just a few things that don't add up to me (personally)

I don't really care if the UI looks similar to GB. All I want is hardware acceleration. A smooth UI, like an iPhone. If ICS doesn't bring this improvement, I am thinking of moving to apple (as much as I hate Apple the company). Tired of my phone lagging out, or the browser taking 10 years to load a page.

And for the record, can we stop calling everyone we disagree with a troll? I learned in middle school that you lose all credibility in a discussion/debate when you resort to personal attacks.

1) Other leaks have been the same

2) Wouldnt be the first time google has accepted patches/code from CM/cm contributors

3) The problem with his instructions was he was on a 32bit mac and everyone kept giving him 64bit binaries for fastboot, once we got that sorted out it went fast and fine.

*is talking to jcase...cool :D*

1) Do you mind showing me these other leaks? Every leak I saw showed a numerical software number, not a name (not saying you're wrong, I just can't recall any of the ones you're stating)

2) I'm not at all doubting that they borrowed some community code. What I'm doubting was that they borrowed community code and didn't flex their Google-y programming muscle to fix the problems in that community code. That is entirely UNGoogle.

3) Kk :)

Last year when gingerbread was leaked it said "gingerbread" not 2.3

Dude had a voicemail, it is that simple. Even if he didn't its not a final release

Two were apparently sold on ebay, at least from the seller's pictures it was two.

Everyone is getting so angry. Not as angry as a thread about an Epic 4g updating to froyo but pretty angry.

In all honesty it looks "cool". But, it could be better; and, I hope it's better. I'm sure it will be. But if it's not. It's ugly and I hate Google for giving me blue balls. (Pun intended).

Either way, more importantly. As long as the performance out does gingerbread. What more does everyone want. And if it's real or not. Who cares. It's right around the corner and we'll know what it is really. And we'll be getting it "soon".

And even if that ugly thing is ICS it's still better than iOS. (Hey, anyone notice that's really similar? ;))

There's a bug on AOSP ROMs that keep a voicemail notification in your notification drawer no matter what you do. Again, I conceded that he could have had a voicemail, I just find it rather convenient that he had a voicemail that he decided he didn't want to listen to before he shot the video.

And for the record, I don't necessarily think this is a fake. I'm hoping it's not, because it looks smooth as all hell :D. I just want to make sure I don't get my hopes up for something it's not. Just covering all my bases :)

    OK so after reading all these ridiculous posts by the real TROLLS of this thread I will probably be leaving xda. The OP had no clue what he bought and then he comes here asking for help and everybody flames the hell out of him. Me, jcase, b16a2smith & mathkid95 spent hours on gtalk with the guy last night. /system & /data were wiped. Just like jcase said, corporations will take steps to protect their stuff, i.e. doing a remote wipe. Enough said.
