For nearly seven months, we’ve waited for the coming of the Motorola DROID BIONIC. During those months, we were teased with leaked photos, rumors, and insider info that neither pinned down a precise release date…
We’ve already heard a lot of stuff about how great Ice Cream Sandwich is. This has been proven further when the Samsung Galaxy Nexus came out. True enough, the latest version of Android is indeed one of the best, if not the best.
Many of us are already waiting for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for our devices. There are even those who are already saving up for brand-new Android devices, hoping to get ICS out of the box. A lot of us are really itching to get hold of this latest iteration of Google’s famous mobile OS.
Sadly though, a lot of the makers are not yet certain on when updates for ICS will be delivered to their respective devices. Many of them are targeting the first quarter of 2012, but even then, the schedule is not yet sure. Good thing we have the Android community. Thanks to these guys, some of us can now enjoy Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. People who own the Motorola Droid 3 are one of the lucky ones. The developers behind CyanogenMod just recently released the latest alpha version of the popular aftermarket ROM and it’s pretty much built around ICS. The latest CyanogenMod 9 just made it to the Motorola Droid 3. It is not yet a perfect match, but for sure it will get there.
For those Motorola Droid 3 owners who would like a taste of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, read on and check out the steps on how to install CyanogenMod 9 into your Droid 3.
Since this is the alpha version of CyanogenMod 9 for Motorola Droid 3, there are some features that are not working properly yet and some don’t even work at all. One of the issues of this build is the device’s losing audio once Bluetooth is turned on. And, for now the camera is not yet working. All the rest seem to work quite well.
Now you have a way to tinker with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on your Motorola Droid 3. Having ICS on the Droid 3 is already a wish come true for many. It needs more improvements, but if you’re backed with an awesome community of developers, definitely things will always get better.
How’s ICS on your Motorola Droid 3?
