CM9 Android ICS based build now stable for many devices
For those Android faithful out there that simply love tinkering with their device so that can customise their handset, you just might like to know that the CyanogenMod team have now made available a stable build of CM9, which will end the line of their Ice Cream Sandwich branch of the code, and only critical bug fixes will be delivered moving forward with this latest stable ICS version of CM9.
The CyanogenMod team have said that the release is for the majority of Android Ice Cream Sandwich devices, and they are to leave the door open for merging in other devices from maintainers, both internal and external, whilst the team will now focus on maintaining the CM7 codebase, and Android Jelly Bean.
They also say the reason they continued to finish CM9 when CM10 is already active is because they do not like to leave things unfinished, and satisfaction of completing a goal is their only reward, and also serves as a release suitable for the masses, and for those that don’t have 100 percent functioning CM10 releases.
There are numerous Android Ice Cream Sandwich devices supported by CM9 including Samsung, HTC, Sony, Motorola, Asus and LG, and some of those devices are, the Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note, and several Galaxy Tab versions.
Also supported are the Sony Xperia S, Xparia Arc LT15i, and others, the LG Optimus LTE / Nitro HD, Asus EeePad Transformer, and the HTC Sensation. For the complete list of supported devices please hit up the XDA-Developers forum.
