It seems intel have done some work to make x86 compatible with Armv7.

Yep certainly Armv7 compatible now I have installed so many apps that are Armv7 now.

Iplayer works fine from market

That's brilliant, if BBC iplayer is working directly from the market then I'm updating right now! :P

How's the quality of the video stream, I'm hoping for an improvment!

Does anybody know if Cytus runs on the San Diego ICS or fancies testing it for me? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rayark.Cytus.full&hl=en

:D

It is downloading now, since it is compatible, I can only assume it will work, be back soon with confirmation....

Yep works fine, don't have a clue how to play it lol, but it loads up and works.

Oh ok think I see the aim of the game, to touch the circles when the line is in centre, yeah works fine, no lags etc.

Google Play still says it's incompatible with my device, how did you get it to install?

You have upgraded to ICS?

Indeed I did (World Of Goo + Swords & Soldiers from the Humble Bundle are working, as well as Dead Space which used to crash after downloading the data file)

I can see Temple Run: Brave (but I'm pretty sure that was always there, Disney apps were working on Gingerbread too).

Also, I cannot download Asphalt 6 either... :(

Does it take time for Google Play to 'register' I am running ICS or something (I don't think it's a regional thing since I had it on my old Nexus S, plus it seems odd that they will deny me access to my already purchased items).

Well, I just installed Chrome fine, so Play definitely knows I have ICS running (as it is not possible to download Chrome from Google Play using Gingerbread as far as I know).

Is the original (free) Temple Run available to the rest of you directly from Google Play?

Yes, Temple Run: Brave was always available. I downloaded it on my GB equipped SD. That said I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

So I understand you can simply see the Gameloft games and the original Temple Run on the Google Play store by a simple search?

I guess this is some kind of region (network provider?) block of some sort... infuriating

Wow well I'm impressed. They actually managed to fix the ARM translation engine then :D

Sure looks like it, I am amazed at how many Arm apps work now, this was one of the main draw backs of this device, the other of course being root obviously lol.

Edit: anyone not seeing apps, try wiping market app data and rebooting, those apps mentioned are available now for this device, all are downloaded and played fine on my device.

Good advice.

Wiped and uninstalled whatever I could find with "Google Play" on it and rebooted, no dice, Temple Run is not available to me :(

When I browse Google Play website on my desktop computer it is also claimed as incompatible...

EDIT: SCRATCH THAT! I did a refresh on the page and now it's available :), installed and plays great. WOOOO :)

EDIT2: Asphalt 6 still not available, but at least 7 is there (good sign for other Gameloft games? I know Asphalt 6 was demoed on the Intel reference design, you can see it clearly on YouTube)
