Hello,
very good job. i'am very happy to try this rom on SAPPHIRE 32B, but i've a problem with keyboard: i don't acces to special character and parameter.

What is that somebody had the same problem?

Sorry for my bad English... I'm french...

Yes, change the lcd density in the build.prop (it's in the rom zip file) file to a smaller value like 140, then reflash the ROM.

I just downloaded this and I'm looking forward to playing with it. I just have to dig out the phone lol. I have a mytouch 3g slide I'm using now. I wonder how hard it would be to port this to that? I have ported one of the CM roms backwards to the Mytouch 3g. I might have to go back to my old phone(Mytouch 3g) just to be running ICS lol. Has anyone else had any luck with the mytouch3g? If not I will help if I can get it going on mine.
Thanks so much for all the work & please keep it up!

Cant remember,sorry.. :/ only used it in portrait,not sure about landscape.

Jcarrz as I'm sure you're aware, Android 4.0.3 was recently officially pushed to AOSP. Is there a 4.0.3 port in the works..?

Personally don't think it would benefit. I'd wait for him to smoothen out all the bugs before updating to 4.0.3.

Strange, my hardware keyboard worked and i could connect to wifi. Only issue most obvious was the screen rotation. Did you do a full wipe using ohsaka's before flashing in?

HTC Magic, not Dream. The Magic doesn't have a hardware keyboard. But, a couple pages ahead of here, a guy said to try changing the LCD density, and that sounds like it would work. Thanks anyways, though!

are some of you hoping to use ICS on the g1 as a regular phone? i mean, won't it just be super sluggy all the time to the point of not being fun to use? i'm even thinking about going back to 1.6 from ezgingerbread right now to get better performance...

I thought the same when I was using some gb rom (forgot the name) so I went back to 1.0 or something. It was the same, maybe just a little faster but I loose all the apps. To me, froyo by laszlo seems to be the perfect combination for g1.

Sadly, I don't think this will progress any more than it has..the developer itself said he doesn't have time and that usually means, "end of the line".

This is just a thought,but,a while back i playing with HoneyComb for the MT4G,it had the same rotation issues at first,but when i edited the build.prop and changed the resolution settings it enabled screen rotation. Maybe somewhere to look at.

    This is a working AOSP port of Ice Cream Sandwich to the HTC G1, the first android phone!

    remember, I am not responsible if you brick your phone. You must have proper 2708 SPL and radio. Follow the guide!

    Special thanks: Shelnutt2, stritfajt!​

    Since there has been alot of flashing issues let me help by documenting exactly how you have to do the MTD (Specifically MTD only as it's been a long time I've done the SPL/Radio upgrade so I'm not too sure on that


    1. Firstly download FR-recovery-v1.5.8-CustomMTD_S.zip and FR-boot-v1.5.8-CustomMTD_S.zip (Scroll down linked OP and see attachments)
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=717874

    2. create mtdpartmap.txt (or you can use mine attached and feel free to modify accordingly as per requirements per ROM revision) and put on /sdcard/

    3. Download and install through ROM Manager latest CWM (2.5.7 I believe)

    4. reboot to recovery

    5. nandbackup

    6. wipe cache + data (Or if you're too lazy to scroll thru CWM's options, use OHSAKA's, see attached for your convenience)

    7. Reboot into recovery again

    8. In CWM, enable mount /sdcard ( make sure you mount sdcard first, else you won't be able write to sdcard/mtdpartmap.txt).

    9. flash FR-recovery-v1.5.8-CustomMTD_S.zip

    10.reboot to recovery

    11.Flash ROM ( As an added precaution, recommended to mount /system before flashing)

    12. flash FR-boot-v1.5.8-CustomMTD_S.zip

    13. reboot

    Validated myself as I'm posting this so it should work for most of you out there

    PS: And yes, validated eZterry's kernels fixed WiFi issues but does not fix screen rotation issues as I need to disable Screen Rotation and pop out the keyboard to get portrait mode. Sync and market issues I believe are gapps related
