    I just downloaded it and installed it. It took me about 10 minutes total, including reading all the materials online...so far it works great! I just got the ICS Google Apps installed and I love the new Gmail app. Wow!

    I'm currently working on getting the Market to install some of my app updates. We'll get that sorted out soon.

    Sounds good, I've had to put my install on the back-burner. I'll be reading everyone's first impressions before committing.

    Can't get the link to work. Guessing the site is being hit pretty hard right now...

    EDIT - Got on after about 5 mins of trying.

    This looks very interesting... So are you guys going with a total clean install or the acme 2 route to maintain data and settings?
    With titanium backup having issues, I think I'll favour the latter. Of course I'll wait and see how some of you guinea pigs....ahem...I mean early adopters make out first.

    First impressions are fairly good. Most noticeable issue for me is the wifi which seems pretty temperamental. No connection error on the App Store is the worst offender.Normally gets resolved by turning the wi-fi off and on but right now it's happening quite a lot.

    Default email app doesn't work either.

    Apart from that it's pretty slick

    For the record, all I did use ACMEInstaller 2 to install straight over CM7. No factory wipes or anything similar.

    Also used a separate GAPPS file to get the UK app store.

    Deleting the existing wifi profile and reconnecting seems to have improved things a great deal

    OK, first impressions.

    Holy hell does ICS run beautifully on the touch pad. Butter smooth and I love the new style and functionality. The most recent list of apps is particularly nice, shades of webOS... It also boots really really fast after the first boot. Notifications are great too - again shades of webOS. Haven't run into any trouble with apps either - runs Google currents beautifully, for example.

    The downsides.

    3 random reboot already. This on a virgin touchpad install. No warning, just an instant reboot.
    Typing seems to want to insert periods after many of the words I type. This is making posting this very. Annoying. Maybe fixable with a different keyboard...
    The touch pad. Doesn't. Seem to be. Charging. Properly. On the. AC cable. (See what I mean about the periods?)

    I don't recommend this right now, but guys, when they sort this out its going to be fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. I'm sitting here using this -knowing- that once the quirks are repaired I'm going to be using this non-stop.

    I'm going to have to do a fresh webOS doctor on mine. It won't do a factory reset within android, and I can't add any accounts. I think having two factor authentication for my account caused issues.

    Video from mx video player seemed to work fine, but I only tested for a minute.

    Very smooth though vs the default launcher on cm7.

    Very rough too on features. PIN lock finally works, but the timeout setting is ignored for one. No dock yet either. But very promising.

    LCD density at 130 seems to be quite a bit nicer as well. At stock 160 everything is just too big - including the keyboard.

    Cranking density in the build.prop improves things.

    Double tapping the space in ICS is supposed to create a period. Maybe that is what's happening there.

    Definitely not. I'm single tapping and just doing normal touch-typing and it's nailing periods on the end of words repeatedly. Doesn't happen if I go -VERY- slowly, but as I pick up speed it is everywhere. I am absolutely only single-tapping space, and it's very annoying .

    I wonder if there's a way to turn off the doubletap=space, maybe it's just too sensitive and registering my tap as a double-tap.

    At any rate, a different keyboard should probably fix it. I just havent gotten around to installing one yet.

    Sidenote - screen density = 149 seems like a sweetspot (same as an ASUS transformer). Looks great.

    The CM devs indicated that this would be possible in the future but they haven't disclosed the method as it's a bit beyond the average user (this is how I interpreted it anyway).

    A tri-boot would be nice until CM9 gets more stability.

    Much as I curse webOS (the browser and PDF reader more than anything else) I don't want to get rid of it, options are good

    Got the Market to work! It took a few tries, but since I had updated I had to format cache and system, etc. and start from scratch. Now everything seems to be working very well!

    Regarding the DPI setting people should probably be aware of dalingrin's comments on the soon-to-be-monster Rootzwiki thread (yup, I've read it all ):

    -------------- Dalingrin Quote ------------------------
    Folks, there are reasons why its @ 160 =P

    The ICS launcher doesn't scale to non standard DPIs. Google's algorithm is really only meant for 160, 240, and 320

    Also, anything other than 120, 160, 240, 320 will break the market. It will cause 90% of apps to not be installable.

    This may not happen immediately but will happen to you eventually

    Just installed Alpha0 today, gotta say I'm loving it. Everything is super smooth and a lot nicer than gingerbread (because it's actually made for tablets). The only problem I've had so far is instant reboot when I try to close some apps, one being Dolphin Browser Mini, which I use all the time. It only happens when I exit via the Menu button press > exit button though, so it's all good, I can just avoid that. Other than that issue it's extremely stable considering it's not even alpha 1 yet.

    Edit: My wifi on the tablet acually did cut out once today like it did a lot in cm7, but it defiantly is a HUGE improvement over cm7 WiFi. That alone is reason enough to use this instead of cm7 on a daily basis for me.

    Cool, I was reading Dolphin had some issues with this build.

    The fact that they have released the source should mean the fixes arrive a bit quicker too.

    Just to clarify, I believe that hardware acceleration is currently working in terms of the GPU. Hardware acceleration for video is for sure broken for now, however.

    This means only some lower res video will work. No HD video on YouTube, and I've also tested streaming video on ESPN and know that it does not work either.

    Of course I bit and installed 15 mins after I posted that I would hold off and see how others faired.

    Installation was uneventful via acme2. GAPPS was an issue (finally installed via cwm) . Aside from some strange wifi issues ( not able to send receive /data even though wifi showed connected and lit up blue), it has been relatively solid.
    Have not fiddled with titanium backup as all my apps were carried over. Video playback has been on par with XRONIFIED 3.5 when I use software decoding ( I don't play HD on my tablet) . ADW launcher took some time to setup but is now the way I like it.
    I got to work today and it picked up wifi without issue �( huge for me) . There's a Leaf game tonight so I am hoping that video streaming will work better for me through the NHL app than someone reported through the ESPN site.
    Changing LCD density screwed up my thumb keyboard so 160 will do for me. I would however, like to find a way to get rid of the status bar when in an app. It's a minor annoyance when watching a video. At the least I'd like to move it to the top where I won't accidentally bring up notifications while typing.

    Otherwise, this release seems to be quite solid. These devs are nothing short of amazing and their decision to share their work means that this community can look forward to an explosion of choices in the not to distant future.
