  • New boot animation
  • New default wallpaper
  • Disabled automatic debug mode
  • Changed date format to: dd-MM-yyyy
  • Optimized Heap-size for improved multitasking
  • Optimized WiFi scan interval for improved battery
  • Several basic and other tweaks i forgot to mention
  • Removed the face unlock function since its bugged and not working
  • Improved the Google Apps installation package (removed useless apps and updated the remaining)
  • Increased overall free space and memory performance by cleaning the ROM (removing useless apps)

Bugs

  • Please visit: Arco's Thread for the most recent bugs and fixes
  • If you come across other bugs or non working functions, please let me know and i will try to fix them

Installation

  • Install CWM5 or CWM6 and make a backup
  • Do a complete wipe (System/Cache/Data/Sdcard/Emmc)
  • Copy the Simplistic ICS Beta file on your phone and install the zip (do not reboot)
  • Copy the Gapps file on your phone and flash the zip directly after the ROM installation

More ICS ROMS are awesome

Very interesting.
I think its an idea to help with fixing the last bugs and than considering making your own ROM based on Ice Cream Sandwich.

Keep up the good work however, it took a while.. Your other topic was "under construction"

Hey Durch, great to see a new Rom from you. Perhaps this can replace Simplistic Plus Final I as my Rom of daily use. Hail to the King, Baby :D

Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S Plus using Simplistic Plus Final I

It's good to see You again! Simplistic was my first and the best light custom rom. Now I'm waiting for download links this going to be awesome :)
PS is it possible to return to stock ics music apk? I personally don't like Apollo.

Good to see your project stills on xda.

I really like the simplistic project, now it will be updated to ICS, great!

Is there any info about battery life ? Is it better than original cm9 ?

What is your thought at "better"? It has excellent 'deep sleep' and for me the battery lasts long enough for CM9 standards. I did tweak some functions that 'should' give the battery some more juice though. I am testing the final BETA 1 build now and it will release 'soon' so stay tuned!
