Everybody wants Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) on his/her Android device. Many users have already loaded up their phones with ICS (mostly unofficial, via hacks or custom ROMs) but still, more and more are discovering it and would want to try it.
While several devices have already tasted Android 4.0, Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 users are just getting their share, since it was just very recently that CyanogenMod 9 (based on Android 4.0.3 ICS) was released.
CyanogenMod 9 for the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 is unofficial, but it’s still worth trying. This firmware is still in beta stage but it is reportedly stable enough for daily use.
Almost every feature is working in this build, but the developers have noted that the following still are problematic:
Presumably, of course, the developers will be trying to iron out those kinks.
There are also some improvements in this firmware. The firmware is reportedly much faster when used, there is some improvement in the battery performance, issues about flickering have been reduced, Phone.apk is already fixed, library audio files are now updated, and the device sources are already rebuilt. Aside from those enhancements the CyanogenMod 9 animation is also now perfectly working, no more force close errors, and the browser is now working with full GPU acceleration. There’s also a bonus because the developers added a CyanogenMod 9 music player.
