All great developers are waiting for this news from the day when Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was announced, and now google decides to release the source code of Ice Cream Sandwich, it is three days before Galaxy Nexus launch. The Ice Cream Sandwich SDK is released for few weeks, developers have succeeded in building Android 4.0 ICS roms for several phones, bug after ICS source is out, developers can now handling more important things by analyzing the source code, and that will be the Real AOSP Android ICS firmware.
Just get the big news from the site Android @ Modaco, they are sharing the system image files of the latest Ice Cream Sandwich development build for Galaxy Nexus aka the Nexus prime.
This build include three files, there are
Galaxy Nexus ICL23D boot image
Galaxy Nexus ICL23D recovery image
Galaxy Nexus ICL23D system image
Galnet and Lttldvl, great developers of the MIUI rom for Samsung Galaxy S I9000, succeeded in getting the Ice Cream Sandwich running on Samsung Galaxy S I9000 after a weekend time work. They just proof that Samsung Galaxy S can install the Ice Cream Sandwich system, though it is a concept rom for SGS, most of things can not work correctly, even the touch screen, but we can see that once the source code of Ice Cream Sandwich released, they can build the true daily use rom of ICS for Samsung Galaxy S I9000 probably, as it is product of open source, many people could solve problems together.
OK there are more and more “old” Android phones running Ice Cream Sandwich without official update, after Galaxy S II , Nexus S, Nexus One and Galaxy S, now here comes the Xperia X10 with Ice Cream Sandwich installed, some developers have succeeded on getting the ICS SDK running on Xperia X10, though a lot of functions does not work, include the touch screen, so we can’t see more test of the other features. they are working on fixing main things like touch screen, signal, etc.
btw, the system kernel is FXP project kernel, it won’t work on the stock 2.6.29 kernel. but, is it proof that Ice Cream Sandwich can run base on 2.6.x kernel, and it is more chance that other phones can run Ice Cream Sandwich. Let’s see the video stream:
Big news from the XDA Developer forum, few hours ago the first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich rom for Nexus S is out, everything is working fine, except some bugs in the un-common functions: Bluetooth, NFC, GPS and Panorama Mode, and the camera will FC when is running the first time, the author said it can be daily rom to use, though you may get some little trouble, but it is the Ice Cream Sandwich rom, why not give it a try before Google give us the official rom, which will happen after more than two weeks 🙂
It was said that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus can take photos with zero second delay, in other words, Galaxy Nexus aka Nexus Prime has a very fast camera, it also said that the newest Android 4.0 system improve the performance of phone camera application, so how fast is it, let’s watch the video, you will find out. We will compare with the iPhone 4S, take five pictures.
Google has announced the Android 4.0 code name Ice Cream Sandwich, turns out “Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich” is the most popular search term on Internet. People want to know that whether their Android smart phones could update to this new system, unfortunately, if you don’t own the Nexus series phones, you have to put your hopes on the third party developers, like CyanogenMod team, and as the Android 4.0 source code still not release, we have to wait until CM team get the source code and begin to cook the new rom, so the “CyanogenMod 9” rom will be available on December at the earliest. 🙂
