    Mercury Ice Cream Sandwich OS

    Just letting everyone here know that I will be uploading the Huawei Mercury ICS build on Thursday. My friend from Huawei is sending me the firmware and I am going to test it out first before giving to you guys.


    EDIT: Here are all the details and files so you don't have to read the whole thread to find them.

    ***READ THIS BEFORE GOING FORWARD***
    1. THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL RELEASE FROM HUAWEI & CRICKET SO USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!!!!!
    2. BACKUP EVERYTHING YOU NEED BEFORE UPGRADE
    3. THE LINK IS ONLY GOOD FOR 7 DAYS BEFORE THEY EXPIRE
    4. ONCE YOU UPGRADE FROM GINGERBREAD TO ICS, I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DOWNGRADE IT BACK TO GB


    You will need a SD card with 700MB of free memory
    here are the links to the software. (8 parts total)

    Password to unzip is mercury


    1. After extracting the folder "dload", place it in the sd card.
    2. Once the sd card is inserted in the phone, go to system settings --> Storage --> Software Upgrade --> Upgrade via SD card.
    3. The upgrade process will take about 20 mins.


    Let me know if you have any question or any issue with the software. I will forward your question to my friends at Huawei.


    Enjoy!

    Even if its a demo, can other ROMs be created? Or does Huawei still need to release the kernel?

    Firmly in this camp as well.

    Lets say that if this isn't posted by 5pm pacific, this thread will be closed because we all know it will descend into nothing but a bitchfest.

    Since we dont take kindly to folks coming on to the forum and promising vaporware and getting the members all excited over nothing, you have until 5pm pacific on thursday (tomorrow). If you dont post by then, action will be taken.

    Don't get me wrong, I want it to be true as well but the guy hasn't even posted back in this thread or anywhere, feels more of a fake. Don't be so gullible guys.

    He also didn't say which Thursday. He could have meant Thursday the 27th of December.

    I appreciate your desire to have ICS for your merc, I really do. However this is just another drive by poster messing with you guys. There is no ICS update coming from this guy. If 30+ hours isn't enough, too bad. And if I close this thread and he actually has the rom, then he can just start another thread can't he?
