    Smile Nexus S 3G ICS port

    I start this post because I try to get all the information and bugs together.
    This port is done By Drew, based on Beezy's NS4G ICS rom.
    this is not an attempt to steal credits, I only want to keep everybody informed
    I will add and remove information, if bugs or fixes are found.

    FIX for WHATSAPP
    Download it Here: ftp://down.kwakkel.me/WhatsApp4ICS.apk

    Updated with Beta 9 based on SDK 14 (more stable, market works, again problems with whatsapp contacts)
    Running on 9 now

    |-----[Changelog / etc]
    |
    | This is based off of Beezy’s 4G beta 2 androidcentral rom,
    | with several improvements made by me for Nexus S 3G.
    | I am really trying to crank out stability and full updates in this beta
    | so this can truly be a daily build.
    | Since Beta 5 had a few issue, I have made beta 6 and resolved a few of those issues.
    |
    |
    | -fixed many force close with languages
    | -removed gmail 4 for now and put latest gingerbread version in so contacts will load
    | -updated dpi to fix notification bar and resolution
    | -included Astro
    | -included Facebook
    | -minor build.prop updates
    | -other minor updates
    |
    |
    | -some Apps will show up in the market as not compatible for your device,
    | these apps are currently being updated for ICS release no worries.
    | -This is not a huge release, but this is enough to make it a daily use rom.
    | -Bluetooth does not currently work because of a missing file
    | -Lag, if you experience lag after first boot. I recommend a reboot after setup wizard.
    | -GPS is not fully accurate but is working close enough for now.
    | -Languages have issues, some work perfectly others may cause the system ui or status bar to force close.
    | -A release candidate will becoming soon.
    |
    |
    | How To Speed Up Your System:
    | In the Settings under the system menu you will notice Developer Options.
    | In Developer Options under the Applications menu click Don’t keep activities,
    | so every app will be closed when you decide to close it.
    | You can also limit your background processes in here.
    |
    |-----[Buglist]
    |
    | - Whatsapp not available in Beta 6 market (fix contacts problem) : ftp://down.kwakkel.me/WhatsApp4ICS.apk
    | - problems with gmail (Old version in beta6, new with bug in Beta5)
    | - missing settings button scrolldown menu notification bar
    | - errors when using different language (should be minimalized)
    | - music controls missing in notification pulldown menu
    | - Data Usage doesn't show application usage
    | - flash player doesn't work
    | - USB Transfer speed low (USB 1 speed?)
    | - notification bar scrolldown doesn't work from lockscreen
    | - change contact picture, selecting picasa doesn't work
    | - force close when selecting display settings
    | - Icons wifi/gsm/3g overlap on notificationbar
    | - Sound effect in Google music stop working when you switch between apps.
    | - Google Calendar: guest options don't work
    | - pop-up where an app requests Root permissions is almost unreadable in portrait
    |
    | * facebook sync not working is not a bug Use Friendcaster instead
    | * menu button does not work on homescreen is not a bug!
    |

    noob questions:

    *do i need to root first, or will this root for me?
    * will each build/update wipe and/or root the phone?
    * pure trust that no hidden developer goodies are in the builds?
    *any issues or lost functions returning to stock?

    t/y

    on the road
    pardon me, i seem to have lost my mind in a reading comprehension accident...

    *Yes you do need root acces (for using clockworkmod)
    *for each version, you need to wipe it, as instructed above
    *not that I am aware of.
    *as long as you use the backup function in cwm you are safe. haven't heard about issues
