Note : The stuff written below is not completely mine. I have put in my part of it as well as gathered information from androidadvices.com, dialandroid.com and a few other places and posted here for your ease. :)
I had installed ICS alpha on my Galaxy Ace S5830. There were a few glitches owing to which I shifted to The Myth ICS.
The problems I faced while I was running ICS alpha were:
- My camera was not working.
- Screenshots were difficult. Not impossible, though.
- Phone responded late, which is obvious since I was using alpha version.
- USB debugging will not be possible. More things are needed for that. Mail me if you need that information, better not use this alpha version. Nevertheless my friend Jay Rambhia found a solution to it. Switch off the device. Press the power button and center button simultaneously and leave the power button as you see Samsung. Go to mounts and storage. Select mount USB storage.
This will save the burden of doing it the hard way. ;)
Those who knew about it, lite! ;)
And others, enjoy :D
The Screenshots of ICS alpha version which I somehow took are:
Somehow, I did not want to continue with a ROM which had lags. So I shifted to ICS Myth.
Custom ROM firmware is mainly based on the Gingerbread 2.3.5 BUKS1 but if you have a look at the build number and the interface it’s an exact replica of the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0.1 version.
