Upgraded my Samsung Galaxy Tab with Ice Cream Sandwich


So I took a chance and rooted then upgraded my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with Android 4.0.3 or Ice Cream Sandwich as its called. My tablet now has new life. This version of android is so much better than Honeycomb and runs nicely on this tablet.

One thing that doesn’t work in this rom is he camera but I never really used it, so it won’t be missed. Everything was easy to do. Root your device then I found the p4wifi.zip and copied it over to my device then installed it clockworkmod. I also had to load Google apps separately but that was not hard either. In the the end I have a faster and sexier tablet. Samsung said ICS is coming but I just couldn’t wait.

Here is a list of the apps I have to have on my android device:

Feedly and ReaderHD – RSS readers
News360 – news
View Client for Android – vdi client
RepliGo PDF – PDF reader and editor
QuickOffice Pro HD and Mindjet – productivity
Evernote – cloud notes app
Box and Dropbox – cloud storage
DogCatcher – podcasts
Plume – twitter app
Facebook and Linkedin – social apps
and WordPress app for blogging.

There are more but these are my typical and most used other than email, calendar, and web.
