    Well... first attempt failed. After Volcano screen it shutdowns. So I have not the chance to test if lfom modules should work.

    The only change is the install script.

    I was already using a similar script in Beta 5, but I'll probably upload a beta 6 anyway

    Having an Android expert check out the touch screen issue on ICS.
    Hopefully he'll have an idea on how to fix it.

    If not I'll probably just upload an alpha with non-working touch screen so others can have a whack at it.

    @steev

    Will you upload the beta 6 or i can download and install the one from slatedroid?

    oops hadn't read that the only change is the install script.

    So Installed this ROM on my 8024 and it works surprisingly well, but the system apps show SDK version 10 which according to android's page and wikipedia corresponds to Gingerbread 2.3.3, is this just a fancy facelift for gingerbread? The system version admittedly shows Honeycomb 3.0 but that is easy enough to change in the info files. None of the 3.0+ only programs on the market or my computer run on this rom reporting errors such as INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK

    Did I do something wrong or can someone set this straight?
    Thanks

    Hmm good find.

    This is a real Honeycomb 3.0 port from the Android SDK. My guess is maybe Symbean modified a build.prop from a Gingerbread ROM and forgot to change the sdk version from 10 to 11.

    Can you tell me which apps report that error so I can try to fix?

    Hey steev, can I download and install the releases straight from slatedroid or you modify them to work with the kyros and then upload them here yourself?

    Making progress with Honeycomb. It's getting close to being usable as a daily driver.

    With ICS I still haven't made any real progress. Still trying to get the touchscreen to work.
