Droid Bionic Gets Alpha Build Ice Cream Sandwich ROM

 

Good news for those with rooted Bionics. A somewhat functional, alpha build of Ice Cream Sandwich has been released for the Bionic thanks to dhacker29 of the Th3ORY ROM team.   Not everything works as of right now, so using this as a daily driver is probably not a good idea. Here is what works:

- Graphics working smooth now
- Adb is working so we can track the rest
- Touchscreen
- Capacitive buttons
- Charging indicator
- BlueTooth
- External SD Card
- Gallery
- Builtin Screenshot
- Reboot menu

However, wifi and phone data aren’t working and the developer still needs to get the internal SD card to mount. This should happen sooner rather than later though.

If you are interested in trying this out, you need to make sure your Bionic is rooted, which you can do by going here. Keep in mind that this is an alpha build and is intended for preview purposes only. As always, what happens when flash the ROM is your responsibility. If that doesn’t deter you, hit the break below to download the ROM or view the source for more details.
