Ice Cream Sandwich

Post by Matt Clarke » Tue May 10, 2011 8:15 pm

From Google's I/O event blog:
This morning we talked about our next version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich. Our goal with Ice Cream Sandwich is to deliver one operating system that works everywhere, regardless of device. Ice Cream Sandwich will bring everything you love about Honeycomb on your tablet to your phone, including the holographic user interface, more multitasking, the new launcher and richer widgets.
They are proper mental. It's like someone's done a search and replace with the real O/S name and put in something total random.

I'm holding out for Ham Egg & Chips, which I believe comes out early next year.

I tried out Gingerbread on Saturday on my HD2 and thought it was alright.

I had issues with the port though so I've gone back to a custom FroYo. Probably be okay when I can find another version.

Flashed an alpha build on my phone a few days ago and it looks amazing,when it's the finished article it will be incredible and will blow anything else out of the water, Samsung hasn't released all the source code required (source code for the drivers needed)so the people working on the project are up against it but amazing progress has been made in the short space of time that the ICS source code was made public, currently this is the state of play...

Working
Display (transparency issues)
Touchscreen
RIL (some little bugs on sim pin)
Audio
Wifi
GPS
Sensors
SD Cards
Bluetooth
Phone ending
Rotation
transparency fixed courtesy of Team Hacksung
Soft keys have now gone ala Nexus style

Not working
HWComposer
Camera
Video Recording
Video Codecs


Screenshot of my phone when i flashed it (i reverted back of course to my ROM)

It's not completely random. It's going in alphabetical order:

'F'royo
'G'ingerbread
'H'oneycomb
'I'cecream Sandwich

'J' is next. My vote is for 'Jalfrezi' ! lol
