Edit: deleted old texts..

To make ICS to work it needs to be for ROM for S3c6410 device to be able port and boot it on JetDroid..
Others ICS ROMs from other devices does not even try boot on JetDroid so only Spica's ICS ROMs can be ported to JetDroid, and heavily modified other device's ICS ROM may work but most of the features will not be able to get work..

Spica's CM9 ROM works fine on Samsung Jet but it needs a lot modifying to make it boot on JetDroid and to make it use-able...

e.g. ubifs texts from init.rc needs to be deleted and much more to boot it on JetDroid...
I've tried to port Spica's CM9 ROM (from samdroid forum...) many times and I failed until I used JetDroid's init* files and then I modified them without adding some texts to it and I got it to boot...

Bad news, from what I read, it is now getting an ICS update. But yeah, Ace runs on Arm11 800Mhz.
Yet, in any case, the chipset is so different, I cannot see a point to do ICS, 50% of devices run on Android 2.3
Sorry, Carlos_Manuel!

OK, I think there is coming ICS for s3c6410 phone/tabled/board.. I think I can get it somehow to work but then I need to learn how to modify files with sources then I can make much more to work, but maybe it's better to firstly Eclair more stable..

MINI240 should have ICS but I cannot find download link!
Mini/Tiny6410 gets maybe ICS too!

I hope samsung makes new Android phone wit same chips what JetDroid have, like ZTE have made phones with same chips (all does not have same chips)...

You know what, we both should attend some programming courses to get the project finished :lol: . You do not know how to modify files and etc. I know nothing about programming. But we both want to finish this project.

Ice Cream Sandwich CM9 spica - unofficial ROM for testing for JetDroid:
http://code.google.com/p/android-for-je ... z&can=2&q=

This is Spica's unofficial CM9 ROM with 3.0 kernel init file for CM7 (not sure can those run ICS)

Kernel (zImage): JetDroid's newest zImage 3.0.# which will have to let run ICS 4.0.0 - 4.0.4 but not Jelly Bean 4.1

init.rc is Spica's own ICS file (from thom3q..) which is not for CM9 but should work if init file is right..

If this does not work then please tell me! :)

No Gapps, if works then install any Gapps for ICS MDPI


______________________________
All who tested this then please tell me does it work!
I added from Spica's CM7 3.0 initramfs the init and adbd file, I am not sure does them let boot ICS, if not then use other ICS init files (from development board, not SDK init file.)
Kernel is the newest which haves to let boot ICS on JetDroid .
