    I figured with the many great developers and other Droid 1 addicts here I should post and update the links to the ics 4.0.3 rom for the Droid 1 here so that any of the amazing D1 developers can test it and offer tips and bug fixes and also so it can get a wider test base for finding different bugs and possible fixes
    *** this is a very pre-alpha build so MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR CURRENT ROM FIRST***
    **All credit goes to kfazz and twistedumbrella (newest builds) over on xda developers, I am only posting here with his permission**
    *Disclaimer- Neither I nor kfazz, nor twistedumbrella nor any other developers involved are responsible for any damage to your device or bricking your phone*
    Now without further adieu-

    Ics 4.0.3 CM9 KANG
    Builds by Twistedumbrella (work in progress, some builds may not boot)
    Date updated can be found in the timestamp in the link- Twisted Ics 4.0.3
    Kfazz versions-
    01/22/12-(untested by me yet) update-cm-9.0.0-RC0-Droid-KANG-signed.zip
    01/05/12- update-cm-9.0.0-RC0-Droid-KANG-signed.zip
    12/28/11- update-cm-9.0.0-RC0-Droid-KANG-signed.zip

    Latest working gapps-
    (use only with builds 01/05/12 and newer)- gapps_ics_20111216b.zip
    #5 gapps-ics-4.0.3-20111217_datainstall_5.zip

    Xda thread- [ROM][Pre-Pre-ALPHA] Droid A855 ICS Build Attempt - xda-developers thought i might as well add some screenshots (taken by holding power+volume down natively)

    Known issues

    Current known issues-
    -No audio at all on 1/22/12 build
    -MUST disable both Google location services options during setup wizard otherwise it will crash
    -Camera does not work period
    -Signal loss often occurs after a reboot (workaround available to fix this, fixed on 1/22/12 build)
    -Phone calling does not work (somewhat working fix available)
    -GPS does not work
    -native USB tethering does not work
    -market also sometimes gives an error when downloading an app the first time you use it but usually running fix permissions in rom manager and wiping data for the market app and rebooting fixes it

    Fixes-
    For signal loss this usually works
    in a su (superuser) terminal type (do not type OR)
    radiooptions 1
    OR
    radiooptions 5
    OR
    radiooptions 0

    Fix phone calling somewhat (can make/receive calls and hear audio but they can't hear you)
    https://github.com/nadlabak/android_vendor_motorola_umts_sholes/tree/gingerbread/proprietary
    libaudio.so is under /lib and ap_gain.bin is under /bin
    Install libaudio.so to /system/lib and ap_gain.bin to /system/bin
    and match both files permissions to the other files around them

    Mounting usb storage-
    install the included app to /system/app (after removing ".pdf" at the end)

    developer section-
    *some source (kfazz will add more later):
    https://github.com/kfazz/

    *this is for everyone who wants to try to build CM9 but gets stuck at downloading the source.
    edit /.repo/manifests/default.xml
    change what's in this link
    http://pastebin.com/9yZiUsG3

    now repo sync should make it all the way. i posted about this in some other thread but it seems the post got lost.
    other things to try:
    edit repo script and replace python with pypy
    use repo sync -j1 if building on oneiric to workaround buggy python

    or
    Once more "down the rabbit hole"?

    Kudos to the industrious souls vying for the OG!dancedroid

    Its always helpful to have even non developers test it out to see if you can catch any little bugs others may have missed

    Supercharged tweaked Miui.us
    Primes deprimed kernel @ 1.2GHz w/ customized kickasskernel tweaks and 3g turbocharger
    19.9 linpack score

    Thanks for starting this thread, have been following thread at xda. Haven't tried rom yet as rely on my phone way to much at this time and personal time constraints to play with it. If phone gets working will be another story thou.

    Thanks for posting metalspring. My D1 is retired so I'm gonna try this out sometime. I remember when someone made a honeycomb rom for the D1. It was pretty buggy too. But so was GB when it 1st came out to the D1. It's good to see people still supporting the D1.

    well for the most part this rom actually runs pretty well, actually its better than some gingerbread roms on my phone, and the kicker with that? The hardware acceleration isnt even enabled yet lol...btw i will upload a usb tethering apk for this build shortly so you can mount usb storage. Kfazz included it in some builds before, just install it to /system/apps

    btw gingerbread custom kernels will work on this to overclock if desired...i've personally tested chevy, pete, and deprimed kernels on it up to 1.25 GHz

    Ive tried the latest deprimed, it runs so smooth. Loving the new ICS features, as said before it feels more polished.
    And it is running alot better than alot of GB roms. Which is suprising

    I bet that most any ROM would run well on an empty phone. It's when you load it down with apps and widgets that the real test comes.
    How much RAM does an empty GB ROM use?
    How much does ICS?
    What's an average RL Benchmark score for each?

    Kind of a moot point, since ICS isn't anywhere near ready for daily use on a D1, but I'm curious.
