Onstar RemoteLink on ICS phone

Good morning,
I guess this would be the right place to ask this since it is a general forum.

Does anyone have the Onstar Remotelink application running on a Android phone running V4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich)? I have a Droid Razr Maxx with ICS and when I try to install the app from the market place it says my phone is not supported. Google searching has revealed little information, but I do see that some are running ICS so the OS is supported on the app and some are using the Razr so i know the hardware is supported.

Anyone using this or have any ideas?

Thanks a bunch!

I would call OnStar or take to the phone store and ask one of their techs to try and link it up..

There is a file you need to modify in order to get it to install on any phone that is not one of the 4 or 5 supported models. The problem is the resolution of the phone. The onstar app only supports phones that have a specific resolution. I forget what the file is but if you search for the xda-developers website they will point you in the right direction.

Mmmmm, I likes me some Ice Cream Sandwich... the OS ain't too shabby either! Had my Vivid for all of a week before I hit it with ICS! All except for the loss of the voice dialer!!

Heheh, yeah. What are you using to replace the omitted voice dialer for Bluetooth? I am using Vlingo now not sure I like it all that well. I only need it for use in my old Chevy Silverado that doesn't have built-in Bluetooth. The Camaro and Camry pair and work via voice commands just fine...

I have heard mixed reviews on Cyberon Voice Commander and since it "might" be used once a month, don't really wanna have to buy a paid app...
