This ROM is built from source and is incorporated s custom Evervolv look and feel to the stock ICS experience. This started as a collaborative effort to port ICS to the eris, heroc, and hero. We will continue to work together to try and get the best functionality, speed, and enjoyment possible. I've had a lot of fun working on ICS since source was released back in November and it's been great to work with many other devs across a multitude of devices and backgrounds.

A ton of credit for how functional this ROM is must go to jaybob413 who always amazes me with both his ability to fix anything & everything, and also his willingness to share, teach, & work together. We all know workshed of course who has given me lots of help & advice, not to mention that GSB is what got me into messing around with ROMs. Then there's the master of all that is Evervolv, preludedrew. When not sabotaging my builds or giving me a hard time, he puts up with my questions and has taught me a lot along the way. Many thanks to those that open source their work and fixes like CyanogenMod and plenty of others. And now on to what you are here for...ICS on the Eris.

--------

* Recommended Flashing Instructions *
1 - full wipe: data + cache + dalvik cache
2 - flash the ROM zip
3 - flash Gapps
4 - reboot: the first boot will take awhile
5 - ensure everything is loaded and settled by letting the screen timeout and waiting a minute or so before waking it up and proceeding
6 - skip or go through the google setup wizard and then wait another couple mintes to allow the rest of the ROM to load up and any google data to sync
7 - reboot and allow things to load up again (optional)
8 - everything should now be ready to go :)

--------

* Tips *
* switching between the Evervolv notification toolbox and the stock notification view is achieved by swiping either left or right
* can open a running apps list by long-pressing the home button & swipe(or long-press) to clear (useful if an app won't open or system slows down to clear out some memory)
* disabling an app is very easy in ICS: either through the manage app screen or by dragging a particular app from the drawer to the "app info" section displayed at the top of the screen, you'll find a button to disable that app
* the ICS launcher makes it simple to create & use folders: just drag one icon on top of another, let go, and they will now be in a folder together which you can name whatever you like

Screenshots

A video showing off the touchscreen in alpha2 thanks to workshed:


These screenshots are of the first alpha where the touchscreen was acting like a trackpad/pointer:

This is unbelievable. I upgraded from the good ol' Eris a few months ago, and the progress on this far surpasses Thunderbolt development. It's a shame really, that development on the tbolt is so fragmented.

I still keep my Eris around just to load up projects like these, and marvel at how far it has come. It's a long way from the Cupcake that it launched with.

    Some exciting news, at least to me...
    I finally got a .35 kernel build that compiles, boots, and seems to be mostly functioning :D

    Some things I know are not working yet:
    * proximity sensor
    * physical keys - pwr, send, vol up/down (screen buttons work fine - home, menu, back, search)
    * bluetooth (at least seeing errors about it though which helps)
    * audio jack
    * usb mass storage
    6
    35 kernel status update:

    It's now getting to the bootani so that's helpful progress. Currently debugging the cause of the kernel panic that forces a reboot. There is also breber's version from a while back that build and boots to the lockscreen but does not have a functioning touchscreen/physical keys. Additionally, it doesn't include all of the updates/features that are in jaybob's heroc kernel so I'm trying, slowly, to get things merged together and functioning properly.

    I am no experienced kernel dev/tinkerer but I keep learning as I go and may even be lucky enough to receive some pointers and help from people like jaybob, preludedrew, gnarlyc, breber, conap, workshed, etc.

    FYI,

    The beta2 of this ROM uses the HTC /system/lib/libhtc_ril.so which exhibits the undead call bug.

    If you are going to use this ROM on an activated phone, you can patch that bug thusly:

    Code:
    [color=green][b]mkdir /data/data/com.android.dmportread
    chown 1001.1001 /data/data/com.android.dmportread
    touch /data/data/com.android.dmportread/history
    chown 1001.1001 /data/data/com.android.dmportread/history[/b][/color]

    note there are portability issues with "chown uid.gid target" vs. "chown uid:gid target" and also using symbolic names for uid and guid. I checked with a running version of the ROM, and the uid/gid pair for the "rild" process were 1001/1001.

    cheers
