The CyanogenMod team today has dropped a little update on the progress of CM9, its custom, Android Open Source Project-based build of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The short version is they're still working on it, but a slew of phones already have early builds. Devices with TI OMAP 4, Qalcomm MSM 8660/7X30 and Samsung Exynos processors will likely see full relesases first, and some Tegra 2 tablets (like the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and ASUS Eee Pad Transformer) will as well. And on the legacy side, sorry, original Droid owners, it's being put out to pasture.

In a separate post, the CM team reminds us that it doesn't use Carrier IQ. Never have, never will. We all knew that, of course, but it's nice to hear it out loud.
