so I haven't tried to see if that's any different with third party launchers.

First thing I did was replace the stock launcher with LauncherPro.

I agree, it totally throws off my widget scheme from GB. You can remove googlequicksearch.apk (or something to that effect) with TiBu, which will clear the widget but it will still not allow you to place widgets all the way at the top of the screen. Been putting some miles on the stock ICS launcher, so I haven't tried to see if that's any different with third party launchers.

Might be a good enhancement request for CM9 to have the widget removable and the screen real estate returned to the user.

Since the CM7 nightly buildbot host has been down for the last 2 weeks, I felt... more compelled than I otherwise might've been to install ics build3 yesterday, and I have to say, this so-called pre-alpha feels much more like a solid beta, since there's so few expected issues to deal with. DailyDriver++

A few issues I've run into (that aren't listed in the originalpost):
  1. MTP + Linux == FAIL. Shows the device as a Galaxy Tab, and never connects. I'm using busybox's dropbear ssh / sftp for file transfers until Mass Storage returns.
    Code:
    $ lsusb|grep Sam
    Bus 001 Device 051: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd 
    $ mtp-connect
    libmtp version: 1.1.1
    
    Device 0 (VID=04e8 and PID=6860) is a Samsung GT-P7510/Galaxy Tab 10.1/S2.
    ignoring usb_claim_interface = -34PTP_ERROR_IO: failed to open session, trying again after resetting USB interface
    LIBMTP libusb: Attempt to reset device
    ignoring usb_claim_interface = -34Android device detected, assigning default bug flags
    ^C
  2. [EDIT: NOTABUG: only supposed to show when on battery]: The "Settings > Security > Owner info" info isn't showing on the lock screen like it's supposed to.

And a few other misc notes:
  • Notifications: I don't like that there's no longer a separator for grouping ONGOING vs dismissable NEW notifications, so they're all jumbled up together, and you don't know which will disappear when you dismiss all.
  • Overclocked to 1.3GHz just fine using Voltage Control, using -100 UV for all (thanks RockRatt). But, unlike some other commenters have mentioned, my settings DO stick between reboots. Just make sure to create a profile and save it as boot settings, then verify by checking the startup script exists: "adb shell ls -l /etc/init.d/S91voltctrl"
  • Some apps, like "VLC Remote", no longer have their layouts lined up correctly, but that's probably the devs' problems with ensuring compatibility.
  • Flash: Don't care. I can count the number of times I've watched in-browser (vs YouTube app) flash on one hand (i.e.: I don't watch porn on my phone :).
  • The ICS Launcher is nice, and I'll give it a week, but I'll probably be going back to Launcher Pro for things like 5 rows of icons per homescreen instead of 4, "homescreen Expose", removing the top GoogleBar, slidable dock, drag to uninstall, etc.

Awesome work teamhacksung!

[edit]: guess I should update my signature now. RIP old sig: "phone: SGS Captivate (SGH-I897 r1008); ROM: CM7 2.3.7 nightly; kernel: Stock @ 1.3GHz OC/UV stable; theme:Honeybread"

well there ya have it! I'm a go launcher fan myself but go has been slow to update for ICS (go weather videos dont display properly). I have a launcher pro license, so maybe I'll try that out.

will any CM kernel work for ICS?

No, although glitch should be ICS compatible soon.

When try to go to preferences for the homescreen it looks like it should be launcher settings, but it does not give me any options to do anything. It just has the header "launcher" at the top. Any suggestions?

Are you possibly charging your phone when looking at the lockscreen? I thought the same thing about the owner info not showing, until I unplugged the phone and saw my text where before it said "Charging _%"...

Yeah - thanks. I missed the obvious since my phone has been docked since last night. I'll check that minor notabug off the list.

Is anyone noticing a massive battery drain? I've charged my phone twice since installing. I notice that the News and Weather app has taken 21 percent. Can I stop this running somehow?

    Introduction

    Teamhacksung has been porting ICS (to be CM9) for the Galaxy S and Captivate we feel that it has reached a state where it would benefit from public testing. However this is still a very early versions and there will be bugs. Bug reports are allowed in this thread only. Please check the known issues section before reporting a bug. The most minor bugs are welcomed (we'd love to know them, but we may not fix them instantly).

    - First time flashing ICS to your Captivate (or coming from another ROM)?
    1. Root your device and install ClockworkMod Recovery.
    2. Reboot into Recovery using 3-button-combo
    3. Do a Nandroid backup!
    4. WIPE (wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition)
    5. Install the ROM from internal sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
    6. Optionally install the Google Addon
    - Upgrading from CM7?
    1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
    2. WIPE (wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition)
    3. Install the ROM from internal sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
    4. Optionally install the Google Addon
    - Coming from another ICS build?
    1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
    2. Install the ROM from internal sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
    3. Optionally install the Google Addon
    4. Reboot into recovery and WIPE (wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition)
    5. If radio doesn't work, go back to Samsung ROM and flash from there.
    - Upgrading from another build of ICS by teamhacksung?
    1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
    2. Install the ROM from internal sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
    3. Optionally install the Google Addon
    Note: The upgrade process from CM7 to ICS is automatic, but downgrading from ICS to CM7 (or restoring Nandroid) requires flashing twice. Once from ICS and again from CM7's recovery.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    My calendar sync isn't working!
    Install the latest build and gapps and gapps fixer. If it still doesn't work, wipe your data.

    App X isn't working!
    Check the list at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1402210 (unaffiliated with teamhacksung) first and check if it works on other ICS phones. Most likely, it's the application's problem, not ours.

    Can I mount the phone as mass storage via USB?
    Starting from BUILD12, mass storage is the default configuration (might not apply to existing installations). The below command can be used to change into USB Mass Storage mode. USB Mass Storage mode is always used in recovery.
    Code:
    setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage,adb
    If you want to switch to MTP mode use
    Code:
    setprop persist.sys.usb.config mtp,adb
    Please reboot after executing the command.

    I can't adb into the phone!
    Please install Nexus S drivers from Google. (Or Galaxy Nexus's driver in MTP mode)

    Can I flash other modems?
    You may flash modem packages designed for CM7.

    How do I take a screenshot?
    The screenshot taking function is built into ICS. Hold volume down + power.

    Can I use CM7 kernels?
    No, the kernel has modifications to make graphics, camera, data counter and data limit work.

    Can I disable LED Notification?
    Yes. Untick Settings -> Display -> Pulse notification light.

    Maps keeps asking me to sign in even though I'm signed in!
    Ignore the sign in dialog and pull down the notification menu. Answer the request for permission. Do this a few times and Maps will work.

    How do I enter Captivate Settings (Device Settings)?
    Type "am start com.cyanogenmod.AriesParts/.AriesParts" from adb. Or starting from BUILD 7, it is available as an icon in your launcher.

    How do I enter service mode?
    Type "*#*#197328640#*#*" into the dialer.

    Is there a Vibrant version?
    We currently lack a developer/maintainer for Vibrant.

    What's working? Why is there only a list of issues?
    Everything else not listed are supposed to be working (aside from the usual CM7 bugs). If they're not listed, please post so that they can be added to the list of issues. A list of issues is far more useful from a development standpoint.

    Why am I getting notified that my data partition is getting full when I have 1+ GB free?
    Your /datadata partition, a smaller partition, is getting full.

    IRC?
    #cmsgs on freenode

    Also, there is an additional FAQ by XDA forum user everest.deth that might be useful if your question isn't answered above.

    it's not entertaining, it's not enlightening, and no one is gaining anything from it. we at teamhacksung look at our battery life and notice we're still not having trouble making it through a day even when Andriod OS is showing up as high as 40-50% sometimes, so we ran under the assumption that it was just lumping "everything else" into this category since that would sorta make sense. the alternative to this is that something actually is draining the battery to this and if the fix is actually there in 4.0.4 source once it's released, hey, maybe we can all expect to double our battery lives.

    of the two options above, which seems more logical for us to pass on to the user? to tell them "maybe the phone is just being silly" or "maybe google screwed up and it'll all be better in a few days"? by placing blame on anyone or anything, we're implying there's the possibility that it even is broken and since we're not sure what's causing it, we go with the slightly safer option because the other seems remarkable implausable (if I start getting 48 hours out of my captivate with my usage without problems, I will be beyond impressed with google).

    Not to burst your bubble but your screen on time is terrible...

    as for you... who the hell are you? why do you go on like you're king of this thread and forum? I know every member of teamhacksung, yet your name remains an enigma to me. I've seen you before on the forums, yet I don't feel like you have any access to our internal discussions, so I'm not sure why you're going around white-knighting your way through this thread. we don't need you to rescue us, especially not with your current attitude. you're a test for glitch kernel? congratulations, it shows you listen to exactly ZERO PERCENT of what we tell people using this ROM. if anything, I'm going to mentally place you below the average complainers of this ROM because you just decided to up and ignore our opinions. yet you somehow think that when you spout yours, everyone should take your word as gold and take it for granted that your voice is the most informed amongst the pack.

    TL;DR - everyone stop complaining, hopefully the Android OS bug will be something fixable (and we can dream it'll make our battery lives better too), and everyone stop pretending to be the all-knowing-everything I've seen run through this thread more than once. there's a reason most of us don't frequent the forums much anymore.

    I see that a few questions keep being reposted at least every 2 pages or so. So here are a few answers:

    1. Will face unlock work on our captivates?
    A = No, it will not work. We do not have a FFC, and hacking it to work with the rear facing camera is less than practical.

    1.1 But The OP has a separate .zip we can flash to make it work.
    A= Yes, the .zip is there, but remember that this is a project from Team Hacksung, and they are working on different Galaxy S models. Most likely the OP is being copied and pasted to make things a bit easier. Nevertheless, the .zip will not work unless you have a front facing camera.

    2. Can I use this as my daily driver?
    A = It depends on the type of use you give to the phone. The one thing I can definitely encourage you to do is to take it for a spin, most things work, and what works, works very well.

    3. What do I need to do if coming from Froyo, or GB, or Eclair, or Donut? I'm already rooted and all else!
    A = My only recommendation - to avoid any issues: Do a clean install of CM7, and then upgrade to this - ICS.

    4. Can I use this on a Rogers Captivate?
    A = Yes, yes you can.

    5. While flashing through CWM, I get an error: "assert failed:.... Installation aborted". What do I do?
    A = You are most likely coming from a ROM not based on the Captivate (read: an I9000 ROM for example). As per the OP, one click your behind to Stock, then install CM7, and then flash this. Believe me, it worked for many! (Including myself)

    6. After flashing through CWM, I get a message "offset x*xx". What is this?
    A = This is a security feature in Ice Cream Sandwich. Read about it here :

    7. I'm thinking about flashing different modems, anyone knows of working modems out there for this?
    A = Yes, most CM7 modems will work for you, and I've read some pretty awesome-sauce stories about JK4.

    8. I see heavy usage from the Android OS on my battery stats, is this is a bug?
    A = "It seems to be holding a wakelock when the phone is on anyway. So only the battery stat for it is higher, not the battery consumption." Patwip

    9. My External SD card media is not being read, what do i do?
    A = Give it a while, if it is your first boot with it then it will take it's time. You can reboot to speed the process up.

    10. My phone says it's running low on space, what do I do? (Fixed)
    A = There are a couple of reasons this may be reason. Most common one is that your /datadata is getting packed, use a diskutility to find out what is taking so much space in there. Some others have reported that wiping cache from recovery clears the message - this users are receiving the error particularly after batch restoring with Titanium.

    Note: Somehow a lot of applications were being installed in the /datadata partition by default, this was fixed on build 8 *i think*. And also, Gmail was saving the attachments to that partition, making it fill up even faster, this was fixed in build 9.

    11. Is anybody else having issues with audio recording? (using stock sound recording app, shazam, or any other app like that)
    A = This is supposed to be working normally as of build 9; However, if you are still having issues, or are on a previous build use This audio Fix

    12. Why is Facebook sync not working?
    A =
    Facebook used an API, which Google had to explicitly allow, which allowed them to sync contacts without sharing them with other applications. Google now has decided to block that API, so Facebook now has to use the standard API. Whether they will do that or not is up to them.

    Note: There are other alternatives to syncing facebook contacts: a) This "Facebook Sync stuff" b) Try Friendcaster , I recommend the paid version, I use it :)

    12. My RAM gets low too often, What I am doing wrong? Is this a bug? My phone is lagging because of it :mad:
    A = Yes, it goes low more often than on CM7 per say. No, you are not doing anything wrong, nor is this a bug. Think about it like this, "In Android, processes and Applications are two different things. An app can stay "running" in the background without any processes eating up your phone's resources." " On Android, having your RAM nearly full is a good thing. It means that when you relaunch an app you've previously opened, the app launches quickly and returns to its previous state."

    Note: Sometimes, killing apps will help, but if that happens...most of times it means that the app you killed was poorly coded, and therefore it was contiously using your CPU (note how i say CPU, and not RAM?). Read more about this discussion on Lifehacker

    13. Why do I have to manually enable data after every reboot? (Build 10)
    A = You don't have to, flash this instead.

    14. I think I just lost root access after flashing build 10, what can I do?
    A = Try updating to the latest binaries.

    There will be other small bugs like wi-fi not connecting, or your things not syncing. For this minor things, reboot. Reboots are a magical cure, besides, Wi-Fi is working for all of us, so if it isn't working for you..that makes you an isolated sad panda.

    Good read guys!.

    I wonder if you could just flash the i9000 version then flash one of our kernels.

    if pawitp doesn't hit captivate today, I'll make a build for us tonight. I finally have my captivate back so I can test to make sure it works before sending it out.
