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.

CyanogenMod updates on CM9 progress, reminds us all it doesn't use Carrier IQ


I've been running ICS on my Fascinate for days... that's right I said FASCINATE! It's not 100% functional but it's pretty close and runs pretty stink'n smooth. _JTll43_ is the most ballin dev. around.

Wow! Thanks ... I had not kept in touch with JT's dev after he released V8 of his vanilla release.

I upgraded to ICS v3 4.0.1 last night.

Battery seems to pull down fast, it went down to 30% in 2.5 hours of non-stop usage. (maybe that is normal).

Seems to run faster than 2.3.6 and much responsive.

The odd thing was the accept/install/OK buttons are on the right instead of left.

The other odd thing I found was that there is nothing under "Launcher" Preferences from the home screen.

I also am running it on my fascinate and it is amazing how the right software and no skin can make a phone run so much better.

I've been running TeamHacksungs ICS port on my Captivate for a couple of days now and for this early in the game it works so well, probably just as well as CM7 did!

I like CMod on my Evo 4G, but I can't bring myself to put it on my Evo 3D. I like the look and feel of CMod but ANY rom that limits your phone, still needs some work. (ie: 4G is borked, 3D camera is borked, etc) For now, I'll stick to Clean Rom until they can get everything to function. The idea of me installing a ROM that does LESS than my stock rooted ROM is crazy.

I'm not dissing CMod. Actually, I hope they get a fully functional Rom launched. I will be the first in line.

If the dev didn't say that he's wants it on rom manager it won't be there, and my dev (virus) will mod circles around your dev
