good for them. get in there early and become the brand name. Maybe ill take it for a spin later. Trebuchet is still glitchy.

let us know what you think if/when you try it out.
i still need to unlock and root, but i never seem to get around to it.

I messed around with it a little. I like it, it's well done, but not for me.
I keep my home screen fairly basic and prefer using the new folder method of icons along the bottom as opposed to scrolling left and right (although Nova allows both).
As far as ayephoner, did you buy a Nexus? If so, root that mof**ka! I put AXI0M 2.3 on mine and could not be happier. It overclocks to 1.35GHz I think but I brought it back down to 1.2 and i'm getting extremely good battery life. Also, the auto brightness works much better imo.

I tried it, its quite nice, plus it has a ton of planned new features to it :D it has a few bugs (beta) but nothing that out of the ordinary.
now what phone you have? maybe I can help with the easy unlock and install recovery tool

I tried it. Im Keeping it. Its way better then Trebuchet.
Not a FC yet after hrs of use, more options, and the return of the "long press the screen for widgets" option. Probably my biggest sore spot with ICS.
Vibrant 3g + ICS Passion V10 + Nova is the way to go.
My long ass battery life is back, ICS is smooth and stable, and the glitches are getting reduced down to nothing quickly.
If they can figure out the calling mute/unmute glitch and a few other minor issues the ROM will be perfect.
And all without Samsung launching an ounce of source code. pretty impressive. :)

Since its made by Sammy, I'd expect it about 8 months from now. Now remember thats an optimistic estimate, don't be surprised if its over a year
