Disclaimer:
Code:
We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear
war, or the current economic crisis caused by you following these directions.
YOU are choosing to make these modificiations, and if you point the finger at 
us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
Notice:
Code:
These are Alpha quality builds and are very much still in development.

Features may not work, or may crash, they may alternate between functioning
and non-functioning between builds. Please look over the lists below before
reporting suspected bugs.

Please note: Currently only the included kernel is supported. Other AOSP
kernels may not be fully compatible with ICS and may cause issues.

Work on CM10 can be discussed here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1776256

Why are we waiting for HTC to release the ICS kernel source code?
Click here to read the full explanation
Click here to see the current state of porting the 3.0 kernel

Installation (From any other ROM):
Code:
In recovery:
 - Wipe all (system, data, cache)
 - Flash cm-9-XXXXXXXX-UNOFFICIAL-saga.zip
   (where X is date of the latest build)
 - (Optional) Flash Google Apps

Installation (Upgrade from previous CM9 builds):
Code:
In recovery:
 - Wipe cache
 - Wipe dalvik-cache
 - Flash cm-9-XXXXXXXX-UNOFFICIAL-saga.zip
   (where X is date of the latest build)

IMPORTANT - Devices unlocked via htcdev.com:
Code:
If you unlocked your phone via htcdev.com, you must flash the included
boot.img after flashing the ROM in recovery:
 - Boot into fastboot, either by:
   - Turning phone on whilse holding VOLUME DOWN, or
   - adb reboot bootloader, or
   - using an option in your recovery (eg. Reboot Bootloader)
 - Connect your phone to your PC and copy the boot.img from the ROM .zip
    to the same place as fastboot.exe and issue the following command:
   - fastboot flash boot boot.img

Failing to follow these instructions on a htcdev.com unlocked device will
cause the ROM to fail to boot, or will cause other issues.
.

Known Bugs:
  • FM Radio not fully functional (Hardware should be capable, no CM FM app yet)
  • Random minor corruption on rear-camera stills taken at 5MP
  • Random reboots caused by kernel oops (Under heavy graphics load)
  • USB tethering RNDIS MAC address is randomized on each boot

@nexx: will updating from cm9 alpha be as easy as updating with current cm7 nightly builds ? By now I just delete caches and install new nightlies. Will this procedure be the same when using your cm9 alpha/beta/final builds ?

I am asking because I intend to do a clean install with your cm9 alpha build and setup all my applications. Then it would be great if we could just flash newer versions on top of it. Or does switching between alpha/beta/final builds need clean install ? In that case I would have to wait until final release, because it is too much effort to completely setup the phone every time a new version is released.

You should be able to just wipe the cache / dalvik cache. I test upgrading between the builds so if a full wipe is needed I'll try and catch it first =)

The cecksum for the Google Apps Package does not match. I downloaded it 2 times by now. Still not luck.

- Google Apps for ICS (Updated 30 Dec 11)
MD5SUM: fc440efa2142ffc59673184abddb8036

I get checksum: 75329DA03B9D8B0240C6D072C37AD13D

Anyone else ?

I was installing update-cm9-alpha-050112.zip. It seems it is installed ok, but there was an output like that: "Random offset: 0x28c". I'm curiosu what does it mean :) thx
It's caused by something new in the ICS installation process, nothing to worry about =)

@nexx can this be flashed over Virtuous ROM? Or is a full wipe needed?

Sent from my HTC Desire S using XDA App
If you're coming from a ROM which isn't a CM9 alpha build, I'd highly recommend a full wipe. You can try flashing without but you might get issues.
 
btw. Data roaming is ON by default. It's not big deal, but it could be OFF by default :) Somebody could be flashing the ROM when crossing the border between countries :))

edit1: HOME button doesn't work as it should. It doesn't bring you back to homescreen.

edit2: problem in Gmail... I see the list of emails, but when I click on particular email the gmail app closes without any warning.

    Ok, so I keep receiving / seeing questing regarding the kernel source we're waiting for. Figured I'd write a little bit of info on what it'll do when it's released.

    Firstly, proprietary files for things like the camera, the 3D acceleration and video en/decoding all hook in to the kernel in some way. As we're using a kernel from Gingerbread (2.6.35.x), we had to make quite extensive modifications to the kernel source so that core components needed for ICS worked. The biggest of these was the 3D acceleration, or KGSL as it's known in the kernel.

    Currently we're using KGSL ported over from the HTC Flyer Honeycomb kernel source. The proprietary files for KGSL didn't change much between HC and ICS, but changed radically between GB and HC. They expected an entirely new interface to the kernel.

    The camera proprietary files have the same issue, but we cannot use the interface from the Flyer HC kernel as it changed *again* with ICS.

    With the leak of the HTC One V RUU we have proprietary files for ICS which will work on msm7x30 devices like ours. This means things like a proper ICS camera without a wrapper for the GB libraries, but most of these require a newer interface than we have.

    Here's a short list of what a new kernel, based on a 3.0.xx source, will give us:
    • ICS camera support
    • ICS camcorder support
    • 3D acceleration without crashes
    • USB mounting without a wrapper
    • USB tethering without MAC issues
    These are just a few of the major ones, but the long-and-short of it is we will no longer need any kind of wrappers for anything. We will have both an ICS level kernel, and ICS level proprietary files.

    Unfortunately much of what's left to be fixed in the ROM will require this new kernel which is why development has slowed significantly. If the early days features were being added and fixed left-right-and-centre, but now things are much slower.

    Hopefully HTC will release their kernel source soon. Heck, we don't even need the saga source, the One V kernel would do everything we need (I believe) but no-one knows when that's coming.

    Finally, the Sensation / Vivid source does us no good. Not only is it for a different architecture (msm86x0 instead of msm7x30) but HTC actually stripped code out which would have been helpful to us. I suppose it's possible it never was there to begin with but it sure looks like it's been removed.

    Really, now is a waiting game I'm afraid.

    Hopefully this clears up some questions, but I also wanted to take a quick second to say thanks to you all. Thank you to everyone who has supported both myself and nk111 with kind words and donations. I won't speak on nk111's behalf but for me it means the world to know you enjoy the work I do enough to part with your hard earned money, so again, a huge thank you!

    Success!!

    I finally got the kernel to boot and dump a log. Tracked it down, finally, to CONFIG_PHYS_OFFSET being wrong so the kernel never started.

    Finally, progress =)
