Add the Samsung Galaxy S to the List of Devices with an Unofficial Ice Cream Sandwich Port

The Samsung Galaxy S is joining a growing group of current devices receiving pre-release builds of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. As was the case with previous instances on the Nexus S and HTC Thunderbolt, the alpha build is worth mentioning but hardly useful as daily driver ROM. Android 4.0 has not seen an “official” release, so developers have been using the SDK (rather than the source code) to patch together makeshift builds of the new OS version. This results in software that isn’t fully baked. The Samsung Galaxy S version of this tasty treat is not even available to the general public yet, though work is progressing thanks in large part to the same team that brought us MIUI.

    I think you should do a more in-depth story on the current nexus s 4g ICS port. All the stories on it make it out to be unusable but the devs on it have done an amazing job… Been my daily for almost a week now.

    ACS released a 2.3.4 rom for Epig 4G with a lot of ICS goodies baked in. Looks and feels like ICS and is very stable so far. Lovin it!!!

    I tried this, it doesn’t really work. The screen flickers and the user interface is in such bad shape that you can do almost nothing. Plus there is no 3g/cell signal.
