    We dont have any way of installing a custom ics kernel. So until Motorola officially releases ics dont count on it.

    ics is the system partition (I.e. googles aosp code) not the kernel so doesn't require Motorola to provide the update. If rooted u will be able to try it out. There may be some roms out already if google has released the source code for it, not sure. There are definitely custom roms with ics UI theme/features (the new launcher for example).

    Really, to have a true functioning ICS ROM and not just a GB ROM with ICS theme and tweaks, the Bionic would have to have 2nd init aka Cyanogenmod.

    I don't just want the theme. I want the real deal. When I went from froyo to gb it was a real difference in performance that no theme could give. I can wait till a true version of ics is available. I'm just impatient :)

    To install a full ICS rom without an updated kernel might be possible but there will be many things broken. I think most of us want more than just some visual UI addon. There are new features within ICS that current gingerbread kernels can't handle.
