December 13, 2011 at 10:29 pm

Ice Cream Sandwich

Since the source code release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a lot of developers have been very busy porting and crafting ROMs for a number of devices. With all the Android phones and tablets out there, though, it’s tough to keep track of what is and isn’t out there. Fortunately, you can now have all of that information in one handy resource! We’re going to run down the list of ports for devices out there, and link you to the development forums where you can monitor progress for your particular device. Development is an ongoing process, and things change every day. It’s a good idea to bookmark this thread, as well as the links to your device and check them daily for new progress. As more devices see ports and custom ROMs, we’ll be sure to add them to the list as well. You can quickly search for your device in this post by hitting CTRL+F and typing your device name in the search box.
