    The Android Ice Cream Sandwich SDK & Source Code has been released way ahead of time. You can download it here:

    Android SDK | Android Developers


    Source Code: Downloading the Source Tree | Android Open Source

    Now, the release of the Ice Cream Sandwich source code isn't directly significant from a typical user's perspective; this is raw code, after all, and not something you could just install onto your phone as-is.

    The real significance is two-fold:

    First, this means the Ice Cream Sandwich software is now considered complete. That's obviously huge.


    Second, this means manufacturers and third-party ROM developers can start working on prepping Ice Cream Sandwich to run on all sorts of Android phones and tablets. The source code was the one piece of puzzle they were missing up till now.

    The next big question is when Google's ICS flagship Galaxy Nexus phone will arrive. With the Ice Cream Sandwich OS officially out in the wild, one would imagine its launch is right around the corner; numerous leaks and rumors, in fact, suggest the phone
    could appear as early as this Friday Google has an Android-related event scheduled for Wednesday, so it's possible we could learn more then.


    Thanks: Wicked, CJM & danDroid​

    They said a stable Gingerbread rom would never happen on the D1, but it did ten fold! Now I'm curious if these amazing devs can bring ICS to the good ol D1, (although I'm not counting on it, but it would be awesome)!

    SDK? The SDK was released when they announced Ice Cream Sandwich in October. The source code was released today. You don't even link to the correct page.

    Do you guys even know what you are talking about?

    Of course, someone had to come in here and make a big deal out of nothing. We all know what they meant, just didn't feel the need to state the obvious!!!

    Obviously we all know what they meant, but they not only "slipped up" by calling it the wrong thing, they linked to the wrong page. This website constantly has stories and posts that are blatantly wrong, and the only reason I even follow this website on Twitter is so that I can save people from the misinformation.


    You guys need to get your act together.

    Thank you Mortalys... And who might you be? Chuck Norris?

    Can you give me an example of an false story? Every one I've seen is pretty spot on. Shadez isn't perfect, he still is the bearer of good news though! ;) Don't expect everyone to be perfect, we're not gods on DF! ;-)
    We're not fans of flamers here either! :D
