Koush’s CyanogenMod 9 release for the Nexus S (GSM) finally comes to the Nexus S 4G, thanks to members of Team Liberty (developers of the Liberty ROM) and other helpful programmers. In addition to getting the very same CyanogenMod 9 ROM for the Nexus S, users are treated to a few performance scripts, hacks, and tweaks (from the Liberty ROM) in the Nexus S 4G port.
The ROM seems to be in good working condition. According to the feedback from users, it runs smoothly and the operating system seems to run faster, although some users have reported occasional issues with GPS. Overall, the ROM seems okay for use daily.

The HP Touchpad was a turning point. Everyone saw that there is a huge potential for inexpensive tablets that are simply “good enough” for daily tasks. So when the firesale happened, and the tablet was being sold for $99, a lot of people rushed to get it. Many of these people, while they knew they would be pretty satisfied with webOS, too, what they really wanted was to get the tablet so they can put Android 4.0 on it later on.
Since Honeycomb wasn’t open-sourced and Android 2.3 didn’t look all that well on tablets, everyone was waiting patiently for Google to open source Android 4.0 and for the CyanogenMod team to start working on a port for [...]
With latest announcement of CyanogenMod9, thousands of hackers and modders from throughout the world are going crazy anticipating its public release. Luckily, for those who have an Android 4.0.3 device, you can now try the new ROM. You can now download Trebuchet Launcher in its early alpha stage as it is preloaded with the ROM.
Apart from using Android 4.0.3, the other requirement you must meet is your device must be rooted too. So if you happen to own a Galaxy Nexus or a Nexus S, you can simply download the launcher. TreBuchet has been developed to appear just like a stock Android 4 launcher, however, it comes equipped with a few customizations typically not found in [...]
Pump some Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich into your Nook Color and check out how it will perform. Thanks to developers at XDA Developers, you can now install on your Nook Color a preview version of CyanogenMod 9, which is based on Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Since this is a preview build of CyanogenMod 9, it is not yet stable enough to be used for daily operation. So, as early as this point, if you are unsure about what you’re getting into, or if you have little experience with Android hacks (or none at all), it may be good advice for you to proceed with extreme caution–or at least ask for assistance from someone who has more experience.
As far [...]
Proud owners of the Motorola DROID 2 are in for an awesome New Year’s treat, as a team of Android developers is working on bringing the Ice Cream Sandwich update to the DROID 2. As of today, the early build of the popular CyanogenMod 9 (based on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich) has been released for the Motorola DROID 2 Global.
Featuring a 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 processor, the Droid 2 Global definitely cements the rumor that even older single-core devices can keep up with Android’s latest version. Released way back in late 2010, the Droid 2 Global is a decent device with a physical keyboard and scratch-resistant display (thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass that it [...]
Ah the Galaxy Note, most of us in the US do not have it yet, unless we spent the money to import an unlocked one. Good news for those in the UK with the Samsung Galaxy Note, and want a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich, an early CyanogenMod 9 build has been ported over to the big 5.3″ Galaxy Note. It’s still very early alpha stage but it’s worth taking a look at. As with most of the ICS ROM’s Camera and Bluetooth aren’t working to well at the moment, but we are hoping that changes very soon. Of course the Korean Android manufacturer is working on their own Android 4.0 ROM for the Galaxy Note, that will most definitely feature TouchWiz, Samsung’s [...]

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 [...]
Many of you who used CyanogenMod 7 and earlier are all pretty aware of the cool features the CyanogenMod team brings to their ROM’s for the many different devices that they support. With Ice Cream Sandwich as the next tasty treat for the CyanogenMod team, we can expect some just as tasty tweak and features only available on CyanogenMod ROM’s. The developer behind the new Music Player sat down with The Verge, and explained all about the new Music Player coming standard in CyanogenMod 9.
The developer from the CyanogenMod team said that in the music application, you will be able to set up shake controls for skipping songs and other settings, swipe gestures, [...]
A while back, we told you guys about XDA Developers hacking Kindle Fire to port the super famous Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. The most recent reports of this is that the hard working hackers have made a breakthrough in making the device run the actual version of Android’s latest OS. They refer this stage as ‘pre-alpha,’ considering it is based from CyanogenMod 9.
The reason why the hackers decided to use CyanogenMod 9 is because it is fundamentally not that different from the standardized stock edition of the AOSP of ICS. However, this does not mean that CyanogenMod 9 will be that noticeable on the ICS. It’s just really the coding has very small differences. [...]
Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 may soon see CyanogenMod 9 running on their Android tablets. Details about an estimated time of arrival have not been revealed, although the CyanogenMod team appears to have hinted at progress with porting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) to the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
The news/teaser, which has been music to many ears, came out of a Google+ post from no less than Steve “Cyanogen” Kondik himself, and his exact words were “ICS on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is pretty great. Coming soon to a CM mirror near you :)”
Kondik’s team has been creating custom Android ROMs, and CyanogenMod 9 is based on the recently released source code [...]
