    Based on your Expert Opinion- When can we expect to see ROMs available for our OV? Tomorrow? Next Week? of Next Month?

    Well, at the moment, I can't even download the source, the servers are of course swamped.

    Even source.android.com is down atm. Once I get a look at the device configuration files for the nexus, I'll have a clearer idea of what we are looking at.

    the repo will probably be choked with downloaders for days
    should be, um, challenging, to get a usable build for the ov out of the aosp build system.
    not that i'm a building expert, but all I've gotten to run from aosp lately is generic_armv5 (you can get to it with choosecombo or add a lunch product like generic_armv5-eng)
    anything else I've tried so far produces unexecutable (on the ov, anyway) binaries.
    maybe someone else will pin down a buildable device folder before I do... i'm currently trying to meld blarf's device_ and vendor_lge_thunderc with the generic_armv5 makefiles to produce something that'll run.
    regardless of who does it first, hopefully they share so everyone can join in the fun.

    I've got such a good IHO ROM on my phone right now, unless ICS can sing and dance, I'll just stick with it. At least until ICS can dance anyway.

    THANKS TO EVERYBODY THAT HAD A HAND IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE IHO ROMs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    out of curiosity, jerry..and answer to your best of knowledge..but do you think ICS needs a powerful phone to run? in this case we have the OV...do you think itll be too much resource hungry for it ?

    They say that it can run on anything that can run gingerbread. But, they are not even updating their own nexus one to ICS.

    Because getting it to run on a different phone is limited by the amount of people-effort, not hardware.

    i think its becuase the Nexus One has a first gen snapdragon with only a Adreno 200 GPU.

    if google themselves wont make it work, they probably have a very good reason.

    my guess would be ICS is much more GPU reliant for the interface and UI and the adreno 200 doesnt have the guts needed.

    IF for some reason this is true, it would mean the Optimus series would have a hard time running it as well. as it shares that gpu. and a weaker cpu.

    time will tell, I hope that isnt the case, but clearly the Nexus One is not capable of running ICS in the way google intended or google would update it, right?

    would it be overkill to have ICS ported to x86 and installed on a laptop or desktop as well?

    hahaha

    nahh

    But good luck with that. They're stable version is only at 2.2. They do have a 2.3 RC1 now, but I'd want at least Honeycomb or ICS if it was on anything larger than a phone...

    ICS is supposed to be x86 native capable. At least that's why I heard Intel has been drooling over the release.

    Will you look at that system requirements for compiling Ice Cream Sandwich? I doubt we'll get as many frequent releases for it as we did with Gingerbread.

    Don't believe the requirements, I've talked to people who have built Android on extremely subpar systems, just takes a lot longer to compile.

    so do we know what kind of upgrades ICS presents over Gingerbread? is there a site that has this kind of detail?

    Doesn't seem to really be any stand-out features that make me feel the need to upgrade. I will anyway if a ROM becomes available though, just for fun, lol.

    I'd like to see something akin to the WP7 camera on Android. Love that there is basically no waiting when you need to snap a quick photo.
