Ice Cream Sandwich might be taking its time rolling out to phones that don’t have a Nexus branding, but that hasn’t stopped Team ICSSGS from delivering their namesake, ICS for the Samsung Galaxy lineup.
They began their work nearly 2 months ago in November with the release of ICS on the Samsung Captivate and has been a solid run of bug fixing and new releases that brings us up to their Samsung Vibrant release just a few days ago, with a little ICS goodness for the Samsung Galaxy S i9000 folks in-between.
The builds themselves are incredibly stable and have very few, if any, issues with no custom themes or proprietary applications. The team has expressly stated:
We did not add any modifications unless they were absolutely required to make it work correctly.
This makes this the cleanest vanilla experience for the supported phones to date and provides options for those who want to give AOSP Android a shot.
For those who’d like to give their pure, unadulterated ICS AOSP builds a try, they have their work up for the original Samsung Galaxy S line of phones. You can check out their Samsung Captivate build here, their Samsung Galaxy S i9000 build here and, just freshly released, their Samsung Vibrant build here.___________________
