Does Your Smartphone Have an Unofficial Ice Cream Sandwich Port?
In most cases the result is closer to something you’d expect from “Dr. Frankenstein” than a “plastic surgeon” in terms of elegance and full-functionality, but being able to run ICS on your own phone before it’s available to anyone else can be too hard to pass up!
Since the SDK was released, here are some of the more noteworthy phones that have gotten the new OS ported to them:
Sony Xperia X10
Known Issues: Touch screen doesn’t work
Samsung Galaxy S i9000
Known Issues: Touch screen doesn’t work, screen resolution needs fixing
Samsung Galaxy S II i9100
Known Issues: No video is displayed, because they don’t have the video driver working yet
Sprint Epic 4G
Known Issues: Touch screen doesn’t work, keyboard mapping is off
Known Issues: Bluetooth, Panorama Mode, Camera will FC for the 1st time
Known Issues: Video decoding, audio is iffy, Wi-Fi may or may not work
Based on what we’re seeing, if you have a smartphone that’s even remotely recent, Ice Cream Sandwich should work just fine — once drivers are worked out.
