It doesn mean no ics. It just maintains the status quo of having to use hacks which work fairly well anyway. This would be a bonus.

Something is not quite right there.... according to qualcomm's developer website, it states

This release contains the user-mode driver binaries for Qualcomm's Adreno 2xx GPU on Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich for ARMv6 based chipsets. It has been tested with the CAF release M8960AAAAANLYA1030. Supports any Adreno 2xx GPU on Android ICS using the ARMv6 chipset (7x27). Google's libRS (LLVM) does not currently support ARMv6.

Have had to do some google-fu on this which points to a ARMv7 chipset source release... and also here according to this wikipedia entry (do a search on that page for 8960) which points to this small tid-bit...

MSM8960[30][31][32] 28 nm ARMv7 1.5-1.7 GHz Dual-core Krait L2: 1 MB Adreno 225 Dual-channel 500 MHz LPDDR2 GSM (GPRS, EDGE), W-CDMA/UMTS (HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA+, DC-HSPA+ cat.28), MBMS,

LTE cat.3,

CDMA2000 (1xRTT, 1xEV-DO Rel.0/Rev.A/Rev.B, 1xEV-DO MC Rev.A),

TD-SCDMA Q1 2012 Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (3G/4G version),[33] HTC One XL,[29] ZTE V96[citation needed]

Now, what bugs me is this, CAF release M8960AAAAANLYA1030, is based on 8960 chipset which is ARMv7 so what gives? :huh: (Sure it's backward compatible, but...) that begs the question, why test it against a armv7 chipset, why did they not say... "It has been tested with the CAF release M7227..." or similar, which is actually a ARMv6/7x27 chipset?

Maybe they just didn't want to backport the whole codeaurora to msm7227...
