Owners of the original Samsung Galaxy S need not completely abandon hopes of tasting Ice Cream Sandwich, thanks to homebrew developers who are working hard to port the latest OS refresh to the 20 million-selling kit.
An ICS custom ROM for the Galaxy S has already been produced by programmers at the XDA Developers team based on code from the SDK (software development kit) released recently by Google. While it’s certainly not perfect, it at least promises an opportunity for older handsets to avoid being left behind.
For those with the guts and technical know-how, instructions to install the ROM can be found at the XDA Developers forum. If you are patient, however, a more stable version can be definitely expected once Google releases the official ICS update after the launch of the Galaxy Nexus later this month.
The developer explicitly warns that this version is not for daily usage and definitely not for people new to flashing. We will take no responsibility for any damages caused a consequence of attempting the upgrade.
