The HP TouchPad has traveled around the wheel of fate. It was an infamous webOS tablet that turned into one of the most sought-after tablets after Android developers were able to tear it apart and installed Android in its system. With an Ice Cream Sandwich ROM already available for this device, it will surely make consumers regret not having bought such a splendid tablet.
For some time, only Android 2.3 Gingerbread (via CyanogenMod 7) was available for the TouchPad, and now the CyanogenMod team has developed CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0.5, bringing Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich to your HP TouchPad. With ICS’ virtual buttons, the ROM perfectly fits the tablet because it [...]
With Ice Cream Sandwich raining from the sky, even the HTC Evo Shift 4G gets its own dose. The wait is over, now that an all-new ROM called Speedy ICS 4.0.3 AOSP – Evervolv Kang Build v1.1 has arrived, satisfying the need for Ice Cream Sandwich by coming up with an AOSP build based on Android 4.0.3 firmware. All thanks go to XDA-Developers forum member jhuymaier for releasing this all-new ICS creation.
It’s important to note that this is not the official firmware released by HTC but is a beta version developed by dedicated third-party developers. There’s still no date for when HTC will be rolling out Ice Cream Sandwich for the HTC Evo Shift [...]

Just when you thought that the HP TouchPad would be dead after it lost webOS support from HP, think again. Developers from the Android community have already taken the device for a full spin with reports showing signs of success running the CyanogenMod 7 ROM based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Now, as users already got a taste of how CM7 works wonders for their device, it’s time to bring out the bigger guns as the CyanogenMod Touchpad Team just recently released alpha 0 of CyanogenMod 9 (based on Ice Cream Sandwich) for the HP TouchPad. Right now, the CM9 Ice Cream Sandwich Rom is still in its alpha stage with no official CyanogenMod Team support yet.
It’s no surprise that CyanogenMod 9 has arrived for the Motorola Droid. It seems that every device always gets the good stuff, and the Motorola Droid is no exception, as Ice Cream Sandwich is now heading its way–unofficially, of course. CyanogenMod 9 presents a whole batch of new features and remains faithful to the Ice Cream Sandwich build.
The Motorola Droid may possess ancient hardware by today’s standards, but developers loyal and faithful to the Motorola Droid are making it possible to get Ice Cream Sandwich running on the device.
If you still have your Motorola Droid (yeah, go get it from your closet now) and you want to breathe new life into [...]

According to the ROM’s developers on XDA Developers, Virtuous Quattro is still a work-in-progress [...]

Firmware is practically raining from the sky! After XXKP1 for Android 4.0 and XXKP2 for Android 4.0.1 were released, an all-new leak of Android 4.0.3 just recently hit the servers. Samsung Galaxy S2 GT I9100 users must be in heaven with this firmware, the XXKP8 for Android 4.0.3.
Bear in mind that firmware version XXKP8 for Android 4.0.3 is not officially from Samsung Electronics. As such, there is no ETA for when this update will be officially pushed through Samsung KIES. Because this is a leaked version, it will also need to be updated through Odin and not Samsung KIES.
For devices that are network-locked, users should be careful as there is no telling what [...]
