Pre-Alpha ICS for Adam with Source!

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on December 27, 2011

Hello All,

How are we doing? First let’s take a look here:

This is the ICS Pre-Alpha demo (we think Alpha at least need sound working,  should be easier to install) and is available as we speak on Conclave for download (not for faint hearted). It’s a developer release for the community so we can further push the development and get the remaining things working. Here is the conclave post link: LINK

As of now we have accelerated graphics, GPS, Wi-Fi, Accelerometer, SD Card and ADB working. Major things which are left are Camera, Sound, Sleep Bug, 3G, Bluetooth and remaining sensors.

We plan to fix these issues one by one, and you can also track the progress on Git-Hub. Source is also released on the GIT, so those interested in getting hands dirty can jump in. Not to mention special efforts from MrDead Locked, RaYmAn, Ankit and TR. Here is the GIT Link: LINK and here is the Kernel Link: LINK

Before ending post here, a special announcement. Last “small” round of sales are currently underway. This stock was reserved to be released with ICS. You can also avail New Year special discounts. Head over to this link:

Stay tuned for more information.

Warm Regards

Rohan Shravan

    Does the sleep Bug include the annoying connection loss of the WiFi after waking up? This is such a major drawback…

    Also – 3G often would not reconnect and/or flight mode fails.

      Both will be fixed in the very next “alpha” release.

      Rohan I was angry that I had wait until ICS is released fr the Adam, since I had to wait for 4 months to test out some USB stuff. Thanks for the update !

      In the major things left: would the 90 degree shift in camera with Skype Video call, be included ?

    • alpertopcu said, on December 28, 2011 at 01:21

      Yes. We are looking forward to see that fixed. Otherwise either we’ll look with our heads 90degrees or people who video chat has to turn their heads 90 degrees:) This is serious, wish it was possible to get a special NI version of Skype. Probably we are the only ones with a swivel cam, and Sype Co. probably won’t release a different just for us:(
