Although still in its alpha stage, a custom ROM based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the HTC Thunderbolt has been released. Users of the HTC Thunderbolt can thank RootzWiki forum member ProTrekk for…
So many are eagerly waiting for and wanting to get Ice Cream Sandwich on their Android phones. It’s like a thirst that hasn’t been quenched quite yet. The sad thing about it is that manufacturers are taking forever to release ICS updates for their devices. Though we have our Android community to back us up with custom ICS ROMs, still they are not quite there yet. Some of us might already have tasted the awesomeness of ICS, but most of the time, satisfaction is partial. Most of the builds are not yet perfect.
If you are getting a bit hopeless about having ICS on your device, the latest custom ICS ROM for the Samsung Captivate will surely cheer you up. This custom ROM is said to be one of the most stable ones and a lot of happy users gave the ROM a thumbs up.
For those of you who don’t really have a Samsung Captivate, this will give you hope that the time for more stable custom ICS ROMs is near. And, if you do have the Samsung Captivate SGH-I897, why not load it up with Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich via Doc's Master ICS ROM? Continue with the rest of this guide to learn how to do that.
This guide will only work with the Samsung Captivate SGH-I897. Check the version of your device by going to Settings > About Phone before you proceed. If you don’t have I897, please do not install this ROM.
And like what we always say, this process requires you to root your device and rooting it will void its warranty.
Read all of the instructions carefully first before you perform them on your device. In this way you will be able to anticipate what will happen next during the process.
You can give yourself a pat on the back now. You now have Ice Cream Sandwich on your Samsung Captivate SGH-I897. Enjoy!
