this is a question to all the devs here, can ICS be ported to the liquid, i saw an alpha build for the Desire Z but so far he only managed to boot it, not even the touchscreen works well can it be do

here is a proof, a screenshot of the lockscreen with the circle from me touching the screen at the time of the picture EDIT: UI responds only to multitouch on the same point, so if i want to click

the Cyanogen Mod team said they won't work on a SDK port, they will wait until the sources are available which should be near the end of this year, after the Galaxy Nexus is launched

Do you think that de devs that work on liquidnex wil try to port ics for the liquid.

I dont know anything about porting roms but we were able to port the ics rom that was ment for computer simulation on our liquid,

why is than so difficult to port it to the liquid now we have the sources?

when we take full worked port to nexus one, devs port him to our liquid

in my opinion )

yeah but not 7 days, thats too much, also the sources are big, so unless i can find a way to make it NOT download the samsung device trees then i'm not downloading itdry.gif

Just builded it on my i5 with 4Gb RAM and ubuntu 11.10 64 bit took something around 4 Hours plus some tweaking on makefiles and on a couple .h

Sources plus .o plus builded system takes about 23Gb on disk

Ma7moud:

I built for full-eng, I think the original download was about 16Gb

ilmigliore95:

The build process is the usual one:

. ./build/envsetup.sh

lunch full-eng

make -j8 (where 8 is the number of parallel build you want, ussually your cores number)

You'll get 4 or 5 easy to fix errors, sorry I didn't annotate them!

thats a big download, i don't have that much free space, and i have a total of nearly 1.5TB hard disks tongue.gif

I went over and read the Android 4.0 Compatibility Definition document on the AOSP website.

Section 7.6.1

"Device implementations MUST have at least 340MB of memory available to the kernel and userspace. The 340MB MUST be in addition to any memory dedicated to hardware components such as radio, video, and so on that is not under the kernel's control.

Device implementations MUST have at least 350MB of non-volatile storage available for application private data. That is, the /data partition MUST be at least 350MB."

The same requirement was 128MB for Gingerbread.

So i guess its going to take some extensive trimming and neat hacks in order to get this to even boot on the A1 . Actually I would straightaway conclude that its not possible on the Liquid but since its already running on Nexus One, I am proven wrong :P

ICS has even ported to G1 (first Android phone), so it should be posible to run in Liquid.

yeah and to the Nexus One which is almost identical to the Liquid, it has 512MB ROM too

What's the state of this project? Is there any news? In a couple of days I'll have a lot of spare time so I can work a lot on this, but I dont want to start from zero. Has anybody started porting the CM9 or ICS for Nexus One?

i think you can use this as a base rom

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1366897

and get the ICS device tree for liquid from thepasto github account and try building it

i tried doing it myself but it seems that i'm missing some files from the source
