Linaro Android 4.0.4(ICS) porting to imx53 sabre tablet

Has anyone tried Linaro evaluation build 12.05 (Android- Ice Cream Sandwitch) build for imx53 sabre tablet?  I've not yet started to build ICS for my sabre tablet but already did Ginger bread Custom build for the same. I did it with freescale BSP. Its working fine. Linaro's build is not officially recommended  by freescale and also several bugs are reported for it's ICS build.

These links will be useful for someone:-

Hi,

Were you successful in installing Linaro android image into IMX53? Did you see any serious bug in the build?

Hi,

Linaro ICS build was successfully booted in imx53_qsb board. My goal was to boot ard/smd board with ICS . I haven't thoroughly checked the performance of  ICS on QSB.

demo images for qsb will not work in sabre tablet. The customization should happen in bootloader and kernel

Can we use the same linaro android build images in both imx535_smd (sabre tablet) and imx535_ard (automotive infotainment board) ?

I downloaded the prebuilts of LEB 12.05(system.tar.bz2, boot.tar.bz2 and userdata.tar.bz2) and using linaro-android-media-create tool flashed to the sd card. But its not working in imx535_ard board. The imx535_smd is not available with me right now to test on it.
