The Samsung Galaxy S now joins the list of Android smartphones that have received the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) port.
This port is headed by galnet and lttldvl, both members of the XDA community and who are better known as the developers of MIUI for Android. While Samsung has not officially confirmed that ICS will be arriving on the Galaxy S, owners of the Galaxy S will have the peace of mind knowing that there are developers working hard at bringing an ICS port to their device.
The hardware in their photo looks like the original international version, but it shouldn’t be too difficult for community members to begin pumping out variations for the Captivate, Vibrant, Fascinate, et cetera. The ROM is in the extreme alpha stage – not even the touchscreen works, and proper resolution scaling has yet to be implemented. Brave souls can download and flash the ROM now, but for goodness sake, keep a Nandroid backup handy.
For those who want to follow their progress, head on down to the XDA forums.
