Google Android's Ice Cream Sandwich source code released
Jean-Baptiste Queru, a software engineer for Google, wrote on a post in the Android Google group: “Since this is a large push, please be aware that it will take some time to complete. If you sync before it’s done, you’ll get an incomplete copy that you won’t be able to use.”
The code is for Android 4.0.1, which will be shipped on Android’s first 4.0 device, Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus. The source code tree also contains full history of Android, including the eagerly-awaited code for Android 3.0, also known as Honeycomb.
Queru said: “However, since Honeycomb was a little incomplete, we want everyone to focus on Ice Cream Sandwich. So, we haven’t created any tags that correspond to the Honeycomb releases (even though the changes are present in the history.)”
