Friday Poll: Is Your Current ROM an Ice Cream Sandwich Build?

By Monday, the Android team will likely have released the latest Android distribution charts and all of the blogs will post up percentages for Ice Cream Sandwich, some of which will call it out as fragmentation, while others will talk how these numbers will dramatically change once OEMs start releasing updates. But what about all of those folks that aren’t even represented by these numbers? Yes, we are talking about those that run custom ROMs.

Every week we seem to write about another Gingerbread device that has been given Android 4.0 goodness months before an OEM will thanks to a developer. From what we gather, most of you are starting to run these ROMs. So tell us, is your current ROM an ICS build? Be sure to tell us what phone and specific ROM you have as well.

  • ddevito

    Running the leaked 4.0.4 ROM. Best Android experience I’ve had to date.

    • I guess the main selling point of 4.0.4 is the speed, right?

      • ddevito

        Yes, but add MUCH better reception and bug fixes.

  • Sporttster

    Every day coming here I’m reminded what a stupid decision I made choosing the Razr over the Nexus. This is another one of those days. Motorotten will get ICS out about the time everyone else is on Jellybean. Never again with Moto. They don’t listen to their customers and don’t care….

    • I suppose you were one of the people expecting Moto to unlock their bootloaders soon? I entertained that idea, but decided it wasn’t nearly worth the risk.
      Now, as to whether you will never go Moto.. don’t be so sure. I mean they just got bought by Google. Who knows what marvels await us now.

  • Running Bamf Rezound 1.2…finally got the perfect settings so that I have no lag but great battery life. Getting Sense to have no lag…I thought it was impossible.

    • RobMorris

      What all arae you running?

  • dylan84

    Still on CM7 while I wait for camera support in CM9 roms for the Atrix.

  • Troubled_Asian

    Anyone know of a good ICS rom for the Thunderbolt that actually works?

    • Dliuzzo110

      There isn’t one. Unless you have wifi. Liquids build and twisteds build are both good but no data. Damn you thunderbolt ril. Stymied

    • kixofmyg0t

       +1 for ICS love on D3.

  • have no idea why all the android phones are released before they should be, one thing about apple is when the release something, it works like it should,right out of the box,, when you buy an android it 4 or 5 months later before it works like it should have on day one,I think this hurts android,you get the feeling ¬†that android phones are built in a garage, its great to be able to root it and change things, but you shouldnt have to ,to make it work, they would be far ahead of apple if they would make it work,then release it

  • zhengyou37
  • tomn1ce

    Stock ICS on my G-Nexus…..waiting for cm9 to come out to see how that goes but thinking about using AOKP……hhhhmmmm

  • zhengyou37


  • Last I checked the camera for any ICS wasn’t working for the DX. Its a must have so I am still running CM4DX-GB.

    • kixofmyg0t

      ¬†It’s close to working. Just be patient cuz the entire camera drivers had to be written from scratch.

  • TheFirstUniverseKing

    Yep, I’m running an ICS rom (AOKP Build 27) on my Fascinate and loving it.

  • Jallmitch

    HTC Incredible

  • I’m actually looking to downgrade my GNex to cupcake, because I’m a hipster and I like things retro/ironic.

  • Leonardo Benveniste

    I’m on the CM9 version for the Defy, not yet final, but works perfectly fine for a daily driver, specially since yesterday the devs got the camera working

  • trumpet444

    Where’s the Froyo option? haha

  • OFD

    I said “not running a rom” because i am stock unlocked on my Gnex, but I have a kindle running ICS.¬†

  • How on earth are you people using your phone with no ROM? D:

    In all seriousness, you guys should change the poll to say “Not running any CUSTOM ROM.”

    • Blood


  • I can root phones in my sleep, but still don’t get the whole ROM thing. What for?

    • Jon

      For one, I’m running ICS on my Droid Bionic. There’s no way to do that unless you use a custom ROM. Custom ROMs usually have performance tweeks, that make for a smoother, less battery consuming, and more functional experience over stock.¬†

  • Vantucky

    Axiom on my GNex. Smokin fast

  • Jchammer123

    HTC Rezound running CleanRom 3.1 ICS

  • DanWazz

    Waiting for CM9 before I make the switch.

  • Cuff Him Banano

    The question wasn’t which ROM you’re running. I thought it was unofficially established over a year ago that no one cares which specific ROM you’re running.

    In the future I would like to be Bcc’d when these things change.

  • Michigan

    Running team gummy ice cream sandwich for the Droid bionic

    • kixofmyg0t

      ¬†You shouldn’t have mentioned that. Theirs over 6,000 Moto-haters here that won’t be able to understand how it’s possible to run ICS on the Bionic.

    • Michigan

      You should flash the .902 update off you haven’t and try out some of the ics builds. They are very stable. Try out team gummy. That works the best for me. Only problem is can’t overclock with the ics build yet.

  • Doan

    It will be when there’s an ICS ROM for the LG Vortex.

    That’s coming, right?

    • Matthew Merrick

      only if you can bulid it yourself ūüėõ the vortex has virtually no devolopment., but its twins on other carriers have ics roms in progress. one of those shouldnt be that hard to port over, the only thing that has to be changed are the radios. id have done it for my old vortex already, but i haz no programming skillz ūüôĀ

  • Foamposite0o1

    Gnex with bamf. Just switched from modaco 4.0.4 ROM, and before that gummy was awesome.
    Still trying to figure out which room has the best battery life…….

  • LostRedneck

    not running a rom, still running ice cream sandwich

  • cmiram

    Once they get the camera working on a Droid X ICS Rom than I will be running that until forever..or I find a way to get a Nexus..whatever newest one is out

  • djenks24

    I’m forced to stick with a blur room because my lapdock 500 is one of the most useful accessories I’ve ever purchased. Come on Ubuntu for Android! Then I won’t be stuck with a particular ROM. Ok Kellex, how about a review and some tips and tricks for the lapdock 500?

    • kixofmyg0t

      ¬†You can de-Blur and keep the lap-dock capability. I don’t even need a lap-dock or any dock for that matter to run web-top. Look over in XDA for the no dock web-top.apk and flash in a de-blurred ROM.

      • djenks24

        That’s awesome, I’ve been looking for something like that. I will be running ICS this afternoon!

      Dude that is AMAZING. I thought my 28Mbps was good on my Bionic, but DAM!!!!!

  • Jmasterj

    No data for T-bolt ICS, so GB remains (ICS-themed, though).

    • pj

      I know, what’s up with that? I wish they could get that damn ril working! I’m not even that worried about data, I just need my radio to do calling and texting.

  • tjmonkey15

    That’s the most disgusting ice cream sandwich I’ve ever seen.

    • snowblind64

      I was going to post the same thing. What is that, a¬†raisin? Wrinkled chocolate chip? And what’s with the grainy texture of the ice cream? Something grotesque about that ICS, hard to place it, maybe the milky liquid at the edge of the cookie.

      • Christopher Riner

        Are you guys kidding me!  The first thing I thought was, holy sheesh I want to eat that thing.  Probably just the munchies getting the better of me. 

    • William Ku

      that was the first thing i thought of. that is one sad looking ice cream sandwich. looks like some kinda cream, sandwiched between some soggy bread with some kinda wrinkly pellet in it.

  • as are most, AOKP on the GNex.. i was running a stock P3Droid 4.0.4 build prior to this but i wanted a lot more customizable pieces so i went KANG!¬†

  • Shannon Hoff

    I keep thinking of rooting and running a ROM on my thunderbolt, but the last time I checked, there was not a non-destructive root method for the Thunderbolt.¬† Since I would lose data with the ROM it wouldn’t be a huge deal, except that I don’t think I can do a good backup without root?

    • First, there is a “non-destructive” root method.¬†
      Second, the data on your phone is not really a big deal. Apps will be redownloaded from the market, contacts,emails will be re-synced from Google. Whatever is on SD will stay there.

  • stock ics

  • Twofourturbo

    Galaxy Nexus lte = Code Name Android. Love it.
    Motorola Xoom Wingray = Peter Alfonso Latest Build. Once again, love it.

    • [email protected]

      Anyone who runs CND is a tool. X| 

      • Anyone who uses the word tool is a douche.

      • Twofourturbo

        And pretty sure I didn’t ask for your trolling opinion..

      • Rodeojones000

        So anyone who uses a fully-functional, perfectly working, and very customizable ROM is a tool??? I’m confused by your logic.

  • Sylense

    ICS Galaxy Nexus, Droid X, and Iconia a500. Now if I could have ICS on my GTV I’d be set

  • Andrew Elliott

    ICS of Course (Gnex AOKP M3 w/ Unblacked-out theme) awesomeness

  • I would be running ICS if there was a complete build for the D2G. The only one I know of still has things like Data that don’t work.

    • When was the last time you checked then? I know for a fact data works

  • AOKP all day.

  • pete’s bugless and cm9 nightlies…back and forth

  • Brandon

    AXIOM [R] for Droid razr

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    Yep…stock ICS on my G-Nex. ūüėČ

  • CM9 Alpha 4 on my E4GT.

  • Van Hicks, Jr

    Droid X running CM9 ported by x13thangelx

  • Running ICS4BIONIC from dhacker and hashcode. Runs fantastic for an alpha and I love ICS.

    I keep my stock rooted Gingerbread build on my non-safe side of Safestrap just in case, but I haven’t switched to it in over a week. Probably going to continue using ICS for the foreseeable future.

    • kixofmyg0t

       Same here.

    • J Dub

      Agreed. I got a free Droid X and put ICS on it and was hooked. I bought a used Fascinate in order to have a more working ICS phone. 

  • Kuboo99

    ICS on both my Droid X and my Galaxy Nexus (obviously)

    • I was just thinking about the idea of someone running Gingerbread on the Galaxy nexus. *Shudder*¬†

      • MrWicket

        I’d do that just out of curiosity to see how it ran.. with the¬†soft keys¬†and all I wonder if it would even be functional.

        • lacokanosta

          If you did ron would probably write an article about abdroid users abusing their phones or what not
