Supports:

- Sound and at least external microphone
- Wifi
- Bluetooth
- SD-Cardreader
- Webcam
- Accelerometer --> auto-rotation 
    (if available, if not sensors library will be disabled automatically after second boot in non-livemode 
        (installed on any disk) --> reduces cpu load)
- Selection of different hardware keyboard layouts --> German, English, French and Russian
- Backlight
- Automatic detection of tablet and laptop mode on convertible devices via TABLET_SW command 
    --> Results in hiding automatically the onscreen keyboard


Should also work well on other devices from Acer (or Packard Bell clones), let me know if you have tested it!
    - Also Intel Atom based devices


Virtualbox support with:
- Working Ethernet
- No HW-acceleration


Check http://www.ceh-photo.de for further information and support!


Development information:
- You need to add Google Apps on your own, because of licence difficulties:
    - Just copy all files from your gapps package in corresponding structure below 
        folder gapps-ics and enable commented  PRODUCT_COPY_FILES lines in aspire1000s.mk
    - Only enable "remove unnecessary apps patch" if you integrate Google Apps
- The default ICS-kernel 3.09 must be replaced with the android kernel from 
    gingerbread 2.6.39 (because of problems with suspend and wifi). You need to include the 
    hid-multitouch backport from 3.09, Ethernet patch and acer-hdf patch for better support of 
    above Acer devices with. All these changes are integrated in kernel_2.6.39_patch
- To apply all changes to a fresh Android-x86 ICS checkout, you need to:
    - copy the checked out repo directory to /devices directory inside your ICS-x86 checkout 
    - replace the kernel directory with the checked out directory from gingerbread-x86 and 
    - apply above mentioned kernel patch
    - copy every patch directory content of patches you want to apply to repo base directory 
      (creates all new files) and apply patches/diffs for changing existing files
You can’t perform that action at this time.
