The HTC myTouch 4G now has a “stable” Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, thanks to the hard work of febycv and a few other good folks from XDA. I used quotations for the word stable because there are still two pretty important features that need to be fixed before I can personally consider this a daily driver.
As of today, Creamed Glacier was the name officially given to this ROM that I’ve been keeping tabs on for the past few days. The build is in its third beta stage and brings a ton of stability, speed and responsiveness to the Android 4.0 excursion for the good ol’ myTouch.
If you’re already familiar with the build, you’ll be glad to know that the annoying red border issue has been taken care of, and hardware acceleration is running smoothly. The WiFi button is turning on, but unfortunately the hardware isn’t being recognized by the OS, so there’s no connectivity on that front. The camera app has been added as well, but it doesn’t do anything yet because the app can’t connect to the camera.
At any rate, this project has amazed so far, and the developer has been quick to push out updates. If things keep moving this quickly, we’ll have ICS before Christmas, which would make me one happy camper. myTouch 4G owners, wouldn’t you agree? If you’re ready to give this a spin, which I’m about to do now, head on over to fevycv’s ROM thread for a file download and instructions. Don’t forget to make a backup first.
