Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Rom for Wildfire in Development
We know there are many HTC Wildfire users who are looking up to internet in the hope of one cool Android 4.0 custom rom port for them, too. Wildfire packs in only 600MHz of processing power, btw, and even Google has expressed its inability to bring the Ice Cream Sandwich love to its 1GHz processor powered Nexus One, so it would be nothing less than a work of genius if somebody does port it over to Wildfire, or any phone powered by less than 1Ghz processor.
Anyway, kaassaus at XDA took the Droid Eris’ Android 4.0 ROM and replaced its boot.img with the Wildfire’s CM7’s boot.img while also editing the build.prop as required, to get the Android 4.0 booting on Wildfire. Well, it’s good to hear that an ICS Rom has booted, but that’s that — the touchscreen needs a fix (it currently shows a mouse pointer) and everything else needs to be done.
No doubt, it’s gonna take huge time, if this dream ever becomes a reality. Continue reading
