Finally! Thanks guys, been waiting for first attempt for long and thought no1 could make this happen. Those childish mods based on MIUI and others are like the drowning man's attempts to survive. Good luck!

Great work maybe I will flash it tomorrow!!
be honest: Who needs a camera and a mic when you have ICS? :D

If somebody have a idea to flash it trough BootManager. Tell me, please!! My idea failed! :(

Running it right now. Awesome work so far you guys :)

Bugs I encountered:
- performance seems a bit slot at some parts (like scrolling in lists and main menu)
- can't download anything from Market, hangs at "Downloading..." (known bug in OP)
- Calendar is not syncing (when I start Calendar and select my Gmail-account in the Settings-screen, it says "no calendars")
- mobile internet is not working (also not after manually adding APN)

Update: mobile data APN is working after manually adding and rebooting, thanks Rapier :)

Problems encountered:

- Mic bug is not fixed yet unfortunately.
- Calendar is not added as option to be synced after adding a Google account. Though, if you click on calendar, it's saying that you should have signed into a Google account (I was signed). Choosing to add an account and trying to add the same, the message is that you already have that account added (obviously :)). Dunno what happen if you first try to click on calendar and add your account this way instead of adding it from Accounts & Sync...could work like this
- Gallery not working
- Market could not start. It was showing the busy cursor for minutes and nothing
- Mobile Data APN were not present, had to manually define (in proxuser's version they were present, you may check with him). But IS working after adding (can be seen in one of the attached print screens)

Awesome work guys...you make us happier with each version.

Hope to find where the screenshots are :)

Sry but got also the market bug, unfortunately I even can't instal apps from sd (unknown sources is ticked) after some time I get com.Android.media not responding at first try no matter if I kill it our choose wait nothing happens, at a second try nothing happens (even the not responding message isn't showing up). I made a full wipe (wipe all) before trying market and one more before trying to instal apps from sd without accessing market before.
Anything else is great, nice work guys, if someone can show me a workaround to instal apps it will be my daily ROM.
Oh and just to tell it, at superROM 2.4.1 instal from sd worked for me, to get market working I just had to replace it with the 3.3.11 version.

Will try if it's possible to instal apps with adb tomorrow.
