PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Only a few more hours until the last of the big three has its big event (Google i/o, after WWDC and Microsoft's Surface and WP8 events). They will most likely announce a Nexus tablet, as well as Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. While many of you are still on Gingerbread with your top-of-the-line phones - let me poke a few eyes out with mikegapinski's Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich port... To the Samsung Wave. Dual-booting Bada 2 and ICS, right here.

1. I don't appreciate that you change the topic from "good example of openness" to "I know it's crap because I can't even charge a battery or make a phonecall on my Phone but that is okay because I released it in the open and now everyone can work on it although I am mentioning on my own page that 'a time to choose a job is getting closer and closer' so I will soon abandon this project without ever getting it to do anything useful"

2. Release early, release often is what I normally do at work. I have also learned not to release TOO early because that confuses non-developers.

3. This article just falls under the "look, I got a webserver running on my coffeemaker". It shouldn't be pointed to as a good example of openness.

4. I read a bit on the xda-forum and for an example of openness it doesn't inspire much: "also I believe platform sources are at polishblood github, though I can't confirm they're up to date at the moment." (source: "http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=27932017&postcount=8...

I am impressed by the effort people are putting into this.
I am unimpressed by their priorities of making things work.
Non-geeks will never hear anything about this project.
