First AOSP ICS for Thunderbolt With Working Data Released

Getting AOSP working on a device is always a big deal. In fact, we we mention AOSP-based ROMs quite frequently on the Portal. It’s vanilla Android at its finest and many users prefer it to Android that’s been flavored by OEMs. Now, the HTC Thunderbolt has some AOSP ICS goodness, and this time you can even use data!

For Thunderbolt owners, data has been the big struggle with AOSP ports and, it is finally over. XDA Senior Member [SP]JESTER, along with some others, have released an Ice Cream Sandwich AOSP ROM with data, call signal, and MMS all working. This makes it the first ICS AOSP ROM on the Thunderbolt to have working data.

The ROM itself seems to be very close to being in perfect running condition. Here is a list of the only things left that are wrong with it:

Video Camera still Broke
Netflix is dead
Wifi Tether may be broke for now, Use the Internal version in settings

So unless you like to video record things, are addicted to Netflix, or use your phone as your WiFi router, this is almost certainly daily driver material. For additional details, head to the original thread.

Project Fi Invites Are Rolling Out

Google is now sending out the first wave of invites to its new wireless service, Project Fi. Users are already signing up and have shared the process with us. So far, it is clear that Project Fi users can have their Google Voice number transferred across if they wish, which will automatically move their Google Voice credit over as well.   What we have learned so far is that after a Voice number is transferred you will lose some functionality, but you will...
