Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich SDK Ported To Samsung Galaxy S

In the middle of this month, Google announced the much awaited successor of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Ice Cream Sandwich brings with it lots of changes and new features, and also gives Android a whole new polished look, which it lacked from Day 1. At the moment, Galaxy Nexus will be the first phone to ship with Ice Cream Sandwich. After that, the Nexus S will get an OTA update, and a few months later, other phones will follow suite.

Now, the folks over at MIUI Scotland were a bit impatient for ICS, and ported it to the Samsung Galaxy S. This is a SDK level port though, since the Ice Cream Sandwich code has not yet been made public.

Below is a video of Ice Cream Sandwich in action on the Samsung Galaxy S :

The sad part is that the port is totally unstable, and cannot be used as a daily driver. The developers are not even working on making the port stable, and instead are waiting for the ICS code to hit the AOSP branch.

Interested Galaxy S owners can head over to Galnet MIUI forums for more information and download link.
