[Rom 4.0] Ice Cream Sandwich for Boston (Alpha)

Now you can test the new Android 4.0 (ICS) for Boston and clones.

This is just a first ALPHA release for our phones.

Download: boston_ics4.0_signed.zip

Many thanks to PJ

Note:
For who don't know what is a ALPHA version:
"Alpha - The alpha phase of the release life cycle is the first phase to begin software testing (alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, used as the number 1). In this phase, developers generally test the software using white box techniques. Additional validation is then performed using black box or gray box techniques, by another testing team. Moving to black box testing inside the organization is known as alpha release.[1]
Alpha software can be unstable and could cause crashes or data loss. The exception to this is when the alpha is available publicly (such as a pre-order bonus), in which developers normally push for stability so that their testers can test properly. External availability of alpha software is uncommon in proprietary software. However, open source software, in particular, often have publicly available alpha versions, often distributed as the raw source code of the software.
The alpha phase usually ends with a feature freeze, indicating that no more features will be added to the software. At this time, the software is said to be a feature complete."

Agni V said...

Hmmm ... I'm going to wait for a stable ... for now, I'm happy with that Firetrap 2.2 ROM with the Motorola boot image. Very stable.

By the way, if you're a Motorola Quench XT5 or XT3 user in India, check this link out for Quench skins/cases for your phone.

Ionel said...

the rom from ligux is not 4 ics - it is 2.3 with a custom appearance :| ... ow and yeah the rom i posted only had the language changed no others changes for touch ...

Vlad said...

i download and i flash right now :D

Ionel said...

@tuan anh - i tested it... it is a bit laggy with the custom launcher that is built in the rom. i changed it to launcherpro and it worked pretty nice but i didn't like the appearance ;)

Vlad said...

thanks for the link, i will post first impresion and bugs

Vlad said...

oh, is not android 4 ? is 2.3?

napyaninja said...

ok ok

napyaninja said...

yes but i think this version has got some improved cm7 functions like wifi,battery,etc and has also got some ICS looks

napyaninja said...

you have to make appearance nice yourself.

Vlad said...

oh, i want to test a android 4 rom :D

tuan anh said...

I have a question, this rom is a 3.2 rom or 2.3 rom ? on website China is a 3.2 rom, but some guy had talk that simple is a 2.3 rom with a custom appearance ????
Sr my bad EL ;))

napyaninja said...

its 2.3.7

tuan anh said...

If it is 2.3.7 then perhaps not to try, because I really like the CM7 2.3.7 of Boston ;))
Still wait for new update of boston

Vlad said...

Do said...

i like install isc 4.0 by .nbo

napyaninja said...

ya i have it now i will be using it till the release of android 4.0

lovabllife2006 said...

@napyaninja oh! so any change in performance or improvements? screen rotation is fluid or not? i never liked the cm7 g-sensor rotation, slow, jerky and unpredictable.

napyaninja said...

g sensor is fine as well as wifi is also better than of cm7

TypeR said...
