Sorry I've been silent for so long. I've been once again busy with school, work and the Kindle Fire. I'm probably not going to release any more roms personally for a while, as the kangs are just as good if not better. Go try them out! However, I'm not going to stop working on ICS, and will try to get Jellybean working at some point. Just watch my Github for news!

I see your repo is keeping busy ;)

Alright, just upgraded from CM7.1 stable to this Rom - here's what I'm rocking now:

Baseband:
2.15.00.07.28

Kernel:
2.6.38.8 -incredikernel-ics-hwaccel-2+
[email protected] #5

Rom:
9.0.0-RC0-inc-UNOFFICIAL

Build number:
cm_inc-userdebug 4.04 IMM761 eng
drk.20120604.002026 test-keys


Anyways, so far (~3 days in) it's pretty amazing. The Rom looks amazing and is so snappy. CM7.1 was a great Rom with amazing battery life, stability, and performance, but I'm just so happy with the new look and features of ICS...

The only real issue I've had is that GPS doesn't 'track' in google maps. In other words, if I'm driving down the street the GPS will be accurate at first and then just sort of freeze... as if I'd stopped the car, when I haven't. Backing out of maps and restarting it fixes the problem only temporarily. Oh, and on a single occasion it froze while sleeping - and after doing a battery pull and restarting it proceeded to freeze again right away.

Also, I'm not sure yet how my battery life is, but it seems to be a bit weaker than CM7.1. I say I'm not sure because I've left the hotspot running lately, which definitely has an effect. In any case, other than the obvious, does anyone know if I might conveniently improve battery life somehow?

Great work on this Rom btw, to the CM team, drk.hd, and everyone. Where does everyone see this going from here? I suppose eventually a 100% stable CM9 release for the Inc? I wonder what the inc will wind up with, haha. I have an amoled inc and don't really see any reason to replace it as long as it's getting the new candy every now and then. <3 thanks guys.

Where'd you get the ics-hwaccel-2+ kernel from?

Just flashed this, and it seems to work fine. Google apps don't show up, but I can install them from the market (or was the play store the only one included?).

I do have one question, though: How long should booting up take? The first time it took a few mins, showing the CM9 boot animation the whole time. I just had a reboot and it's been sitting on the boot animation for even longer...

I don't think this is really being maintained anymore. It would probably be a better idea to use my Linaro optimized build or invisiblek's nightlies. Those have quite a few fixes for various issues. Also, my Linaro build is much faster and more responsive.

I recommend your Linaro build as well. About as smooth as I ever saw on the Incredible for ICS.

Ah, I didn't realize that. I flashed it because I'd heard good things about drk.hd's ICS ROM. I assume I follow the same steps to install this? Or can I get away with not factory resetting and wiping and all that since I'd be going from ICS to ICS?

How hard is it to get set up? Aside from flashing rooted stock ROMs, flashing ICS yesterday was the first "adventurous" thing I've done. Based on what I see here, it looks like I have to compile it myself?

Oh, and relating to my previous post about the long bootup: I did a battery pull and booted up again without a problem. Been fine since then.

The dates in the changelog are the links, just download the zip and gapps like you did for drk.hd's ICS and flash them. You'll be glad you did, it's a great ROM, I've been on it since the 7/8 build.

Which reminds me, I need to update, lol.

This is unrelated to any specific ROM, but has the green charge light threshhold been changed to 90%? My LED turned green when it hit 90%, but it's still charging...

Alright, wiped cache and dalvik, flashed the linaro build, flashed gapps, rebooting...
This is my first time seeing Cid. I'm not sure if I prefer him over the old mascot yet.
Optimizing applications...
And I'm up! Everything looks right, I guess I'll watch that other thread from now on. Thanks for the help!

I still like the old skateboarding bugdroid better.

    I hope you aren't tired of flashing, because I have one more coming your way, and this one is big. The Evervolv team just pushed through some major fixes to the camera HALs just this morning that should enable barcode scanners and panorama mode. Additionally, rywri has just posted a new camera apk with some code that fixes the camera fc when using panorama. Check his thread out here.

    What this means for YOU is that I'm (probably) going to put out yet another build today with working barcode scanner and panorama. :D



    I've started to experiencing a weird issue with Superuser after upgrading to a7. When prompted, Superuser doesn't remember anything that I've allowed. I had to allow several prompts just to load Titanium Backup. This issues isn't limited to Titanium, but to any app that requires root access. Right now I have Superuser set to automatically allow anything, and I'm not fond of leaving it on that setting. I've tried clearing the cache. They only thing I haven't done is delete Superuser using Titanium (since it's a system app) and then reinstalling it through the market.

    That's odd, it's working for me. I do know that CM made some changes to su recently to try to fix some bugs...

    New build is up! Get it while it's hot!
    Like the preview release, only kernels built for the new drivers work. This limits you to Incredikernel HWA Beta 2 and mamarley's beta kernel, along with the stock kernel, of course.

    Get it here!

    New Build

    New build is out! Get it here.

    Changes:
    • CM9 updates
    • Evervolv updates
    • General cleanup

    I'm done with finals now, so my dev work should be speeding up. The main thing to work on right now is actually the kernel, so we don't have to rely on outside kernels. Then comes getting the needed changes to the qcom libs into CM. Busy busy!

    New build is up! Various updates from upstream. On my end, I simplified the repo download process, so I'll write a new tutorial on building soon.

    Get the new build here.
