The dream of every Android developer is to see as many Android phones—old or new—updated to the new Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. Relying on official updates alone won’t help bring the updates to all Android phones. We also need the help of independent developers.

With the whole world craving a bite of Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), it’s understandable that users with Android devices that are older than a year and half wonder whether they’ll be able to upgrade to the latest flavor of Android. Most manufacturers have been very hush-hush about the devices that will receive official Android 4.0 support. This leaves impatient users no choice but to turn to alternate and unofficial means to obtain their Android fix.
Such an alternative solution is provided by CyanogenMod. CyanogenMod is a customized, aftermarket firmware distribution for several Android devices, [...]
Despite the release of the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Google Nexus S, a lot of users would still prefer flashing custom ROMs on their phones. Custom ROMs are more enhanced and give you the freedom to mold your phone the way you want it to be. Unlike official updates, most custom ROMs also get updates faster and can be manually installed on your phone.
The CyanogenMod team has been working day and night to produce its own variety of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich via CyanogenMod 9 (CM9). The team somewhat slowed down on its progress with development because it needed more build servers. After calling out for help to the community, donations came in [...]
With the official Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade already made available for the Transformer Prime, it seems that some users still prefer CyanogenMod 9 (CM9) over the stock and official versions. After the official ICS launch, Asus made a complete package by rolling out not just an upgrade but also the release of the tablet’s bootloader unlocking tool. It only took a short time for developers to cook up a CyanogenMod 9 release specifically designed for the Transformer Prime.
The CM9 ROM for the Transformer Prime is currently in its beta stage but expect to see some updates that will soon be released in the form of nightlies. Expect to see some minor bugs and disabled [...]
Looks like even Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch gets a power up, thanks to CyanogenMod 9. At the moment, the release is experimental (alpha 3.1 as of this writing), ported from the current build of the CM9 for the Galaxy S2. Thanks to XDA Developers member sbrissen, this ROM is based on the latest AOSP sources, and incorporates some enhancements and tweaks.
Because this release is still an experimental build, there are still a number of bugs to be addressed. Some of the known issues are:USB (phone will charge and there will be adb access but it will not mount) Signal bars are not accurate Stock browser will not work (use Opera or other browsers from the Market) No [...]
A few days ago, a new Ice Cream Sandwich firmware leak for the Samsung Galaxy S2 crawled down the grapevine. The leaked firmware, referred to as build XXLPB, included interface 3D effects during scrolling and improved battery performance.
XDA Developers member althebyani has created a new Ice Cream Sandwich custom ROM based on XXLPB firmware, mixed with CyanogenMod 9 source. The custom ROM is called Thebyani ROM ICS for SGS2. The developer has even done away with the TouchWiz UI to give the ROM a clean AOSP look.
Some of this ROM’s features include:Fast booting. GPS has been fixed. Pure Ice Cream Sandwich. Improved battery life and [...]
