Users of the Samsung Captivate I897 will have reasons to celebrate as an all new Ice Cream Sandwich ROM has been released for the device.
The fully opensource ROM known as Codename Android will set new standards in custom ROM modifications. Codename Android is based on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and is built with speed, stability, and customizability in mind.
The Samsung Captivate I897 was recently blessed with the Codename Android ROM, which roughly translates to official Codename Android ROMs instead of unofficial ports.
The ROM is still in its beta version with some bugs and nonworking features. However, updates are being made in the form of nightlies which are released regularly.
Check out the rest of this guide to learn how to flash Codename Android on your Samsung Captivate I897 and upgrade the phone to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich on your Samsung Captivate I897 through the Codename Android custom ROM.

after installing the zip from the sdcard, i see “icy glitch kernel v14″ splash screen and then att logo then goes on forever in a loop. nothing happens.
well, i did a wipe on everything (data, cache, etc) then installed zip from sdcard and finally it worked. thanks.
What mod did you install? What is Codename-Android-(MOD)-1.5.5-Captivate.zip and what the modification time = 2012-03-15 21:06:31 PDT?
I ask because I just flashed my captivate a couple of times (wiping data/cache) and the network is still not found. I’m not able to manually enter the network either. Thanks in advance for you help.
interesting, now my mobile network is not working. cannot make calls, or text. any solution?
looks like access point name is gone. settings->wireless settings->mobile networks->APNs – there is nothing here. So, tried the option “restore default apn” – and it hangs..nothing happens. also tried manually adding an APN too..any ideas?
while upgrading the ICS make sure your memory card is not installed and then reboot thedevice again, it will work…
after upgrade the daily brief is gone.the only answer is it does not appear any more. this company has to have a better answer. Also, how can the phone log be set to only received calls, and not messages also.
gprs not working after flashing…APN and all set ..
Quick question for anyone: Are you able to send multimedia messages after the upgrade to 4.0? I can update and reset my phone but 90% of the time, sending MMS doesn’t work.
works good so far!!
just done everything in my wife’s phone, seems working alright, Thanks for the share…I’ll get back to you guys if there anything goes wrong…
Thanks for the easy instructions it really worked fine until I screwed it up. I installed the ROM and then i rebooted through recovery and then i tried to install the Gapp zip and that went well too. i did not stop there tried to restore from the back up and got hit there now the boot file is deleted i think what do i do the phone simply won’t boot up.
