Ideos X5 Gets a Taste of ICS
We are always crazy about ports for various devices for one very particular reason: these extend the lifetime of otherwise unsupported devices. This was, for the most part, the foundation of our beloved site. From time to time, we find in our forums an underdog type of device that not too many people are interested in. However, it takes one little spark from a very good dev to make things happen. This is the story of the Ideos X5 (one of its variants anyways) and how XDA Recognized Developer and overall legend dzo managed to get this tab to run ICS.
The port is relatively new and yet it has gone through many revisions in a matter of 10 days, which is the kind of work that we have seen, loved, and come to expect from this dev. The port is, as of right now, with no bugs except for a slow GPS startup, but everything else seems to be working up to speed (wifi, cams, compass, etc). The latest revision fixed a bug with battery stats, which seems to plague not just this port, but several other devices as well, including the Asus Transformer stock rom!
In any case, if you have a X5 and would like to take this for a test drive, please leave some comments for the dev so that further development on this can be achieved.
This is a clean ICS ROM built from from the Qualcomm Code Aurora source.
Everything is more or less functional and the UI is very smooth but it is still preliminary so expect bugs, random reboots etc..
This is based on release M7630AABBQMLZA4040295I on the ics_chocolate branch and a new version is released almost every week so it should only get better.

OnePlus is one of those companies that appear one day and next thing you know, they are all over the internet. Their original OnePlus One phone was a major success in the mobile space due to its low price yet remarkable specifications - the ultimate goal of the company and their “Never Settle” slogan. We love talking about “the little OEM that could”, not necessarily because they are good or bad, but because their business and marketing strategies are very...
