    Default Nexus S 4G binaries released!

    AOSP code has been released but without the binaries that include drivers and such, it cant match GB roms. BUT the binaries have been released! Expect fully functioning ICS roms soon! Yes this means working 4G.


    Here's a link Binaries for Nexus Phones and Flagship Devices - Google Support for Nexus Phones and Flagship Devices - Google Code

    I wish my computer could handle compiling ICS or id do it myself
    Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

    Mine probably could even though it doesn't meet the "minimum" requirements but then again how many users do really?

    I'm running a 3 month old Dual Core Win 7, 8 gig of RAM 650 gig HD..... So I'm real close to min specs...

    Last time I tried installing Ubuntu and went to sync the source tree it never would happen so I gave up....

    I think the developers have done an amazing job with what they have, but the kudos over at XDA are over the top. The typical comment is :"This is the bestest ROM ever, absolutely amazing,Just one thing: the phone doesn't work. Wifi doesn't work either. And, oh, GPS doesn't work. And it shuts down twice a day But, it is still the best. Ever."

    ~I'm dreaming of an Ice Cream Sandwich Christmas~

    I think that I could do it too with my server at work, but I am sure somebody more experienced that me will have done it by now.

    FWIW the server is a new SGI Cloud Server that has only 132 cores right now and 96gb memory. We are thinking of an upgrade, lol.

    I think we will see some type of goodness this weekend I hope... AOSP from the oICS ROM is working on Android 4.0.3 with the binaries as we speak

    No... A HP best buy special. Almost did the asus but refuse to buy a computer that has the video card built on the motherboard. I'm greedy like that. I don't like sharing memory.

    Aosp said he's working on it

    If anyone with the hardware would like to take a stab at it, I'd be glad to help them. Its pretty straightforward
