ICS Sources Out!! A Christmas Gift Before Christmas
If you were all happy with all the ports that have been flourishing across xda on the upcoming ICS OS, then this will likely be of your liking. It seems that good ol’ Google decided to release the sources of their new OS even a tad before the official release of the Galaxy Nexus. What this means is that you will likely see AOSP roms sporting Android 4.0 in your favorite devices right around the corner. However, the news don’t stop there. As it turns out, along with the ICS sources, Google decided to release the highly anticipated sources for all 3 major releases of Honeycomb. According to the blog post, these sources are not exactly complete due to the fact that they wanted people to focus all of their efforts on Android 4.0.
