Advertisement

If you have been waiting impatiently to hear of an Ice Cream Sandwich port for your Droid Incredible (because obviously HTC is no hope here) ─ your wait is over.

Developer kushdeck, who was working on a port of ICS for Droid Incredible and was beta testing the ROM with his followers on twitter (until yesterday), has finally released it for public.

No, it doesn’t mean that the ROM is complete and ready for daily use, but it’s (at-least) ready for everyone to test out. So before you go and install the ROM, please beware that it’s still a work-in-progress.

Here’s what’s working and not working so far [QUOTED]:

*What works*
Most everything is working, although you may encounter a few FC’s here and there and find some other bugs on the way.

*Broken*
Camera.
Various others.
