by: Carl ParkerFebruary 17, 2012

What good is a touchscreen if it doesn’t get used every single chance it gets?

by: Carl ParkerFebruary 17, 2012

With the CyanogenMod team pushing CyanogenMod 9 (CM9) onto as many devices as possible, it was only expected that the Samsung Epic 4G gets its share of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Because this is still an alpha release, there are bugs that need to be addressed. The bugs are not major problems though–just tiny snags such as the camera crashing when you change the picture size, video recording sometimes showing artifacts, and MMS sometimes being unreliable. Since this is an official release by the CyanogenMod team at the helm, it’s only a matter of time before a more stable build will be released.
