GAPPS IN SECOND POST! So is a temp fix for market. (no longer required for b5r2)

if you find it slow, load up rom toolbox, scroll right to performance, click cpu sliders, and set max to 1.3ghz and change the governor from interactive to either performance or ondemand. its currently at 1ghz and interactive, which may be why it is slow.
ALSO, NEVER UNDERCLOCK UNDER 200MHZ, IT HAS ISSUES!!!!!

FAQ

Q. My wifi tether doesn't work? Why?
A. Dont know. Download Barnacle Tether from the market, that reportedly works.

Q. My market doesn't work. How do i fix?
A. Read above, follow those instructions and it will work.

Q. Why isn't market or Gmail etc installed?!
A. You have to flash GAPPS from above, then they all will appear

Q. Why is it so slow?
A. It isn't. At the start it may be, but let it settle in. Also, it is only at 1GHZ, and on the interactive governor. Go to Rom Toolbox and swipe left to performance and select cpu sliders. I recommend it being at 1.3Ghz and either ondemand or performance. Make sure to set it on boot.

Q. Why does my "?" not work?
A. It does. you have to click FN+X for ? (G2 users: ALT+X) If you want, you can flash OdiemanSAM's latest kernel in his thread, and it fixes the "?" button, but the home button doesnt work, so i left it out.

Q. Does this have Hardware Acceleration?
A. Yes and no. We have a hardware acceleration hack enabled, but its not true hardware acceleration, which is why GTalk doesn't work. We are close to true hardware acceleration, and when we have it, it will be FAST.

Q. Why doesn't GTalk work?
A. It needs hardware acceleration apparently. Look at the question and answer above

Q. Do i need to fullwipe between updates?
A. No, but it is highly recommended. If you dont, you may not get all the features/fixes of the update, and my run into issues

Q. Why doesn't my Facebook sync contacts?
A. This isn't because of some glitch or anything. Google disabled it in ice cream sandwich due to "violations" or something

Q. Why doesn't Flash Player work?
A. As of 16/12/11 it hasn't been updated for Ice Cream Sandwich

Very nice, just wondering did you get the touch screen working, because I remember you said it wasn't at one point. Either way congratulations on this looking forward to trying it out.

op updated with youtube videos. sorry for bad quality, was recorded on my old moto RIZR Z10 <3

two things, one I don't see the youtube videos (unless my comp is being really weird :S) and two judging from the pictures I'm guessing you don't have a way to make keyboard close? If not do the function keys or for that matter any keys on the HW keyboard work?

Thanks for the work though can't wait to try it! :)

Awesome work man! Thanks for taking the initiative, finding this and porting for those of us "Visioners" itching to sink our teeth into a working version of ICS! I can't wait to download tomorrow morning! Also, I couldn't care less at this point whether the hardware keyboard works, I am just glad to have a functional version to play with.

I suggest all hit xT4Z1N4TRx's "Thanks" button for for this!

Is there portrait mode, or is it only landscape? And does the software keyboard work?
