Description and Disclaimer:

This is an Alpha version of CM9 (Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4).

There is very very limited support for this as we are currently working towards Jellybean here

Myself and anyone else working on the unofficial CyanogenMod ports will not be able to promise that this won't make your phone explode into puppies, unicorns and rainbows.....or a violent fireball. You are accepting this risk by continuing forth.

Working:
  • Multitouch *NEW*
  • USB Tethering *NEW*
  • Bluetooth
  • Notification LED
  • Wifi Hotspot
  • Auto-Brightness
  • Voice / Data
  • SMS/MMS
  • Audio
  • WiFi
  • NFC / Android Beam
  • App Switch button = Menu
  • Auto-Rotation
  • Proximity sensor
  • Camera (Still shots and Zero Shutter Lag)
  • Video Camera (works about 85-90% of the time. The other 10-15% you get a garbled video output)

Not working:
  • Video Camera is flaky.
  • Panorama Camera images.

Installation Instructions:
Download the latest CM9 .zip file from here.
Download ICS Google Apps from here.
Reboot into CWM or TWRP recovery.
Factory Data reset. (MUST DO THIS if coming from a non-CM9 rom!)
Flash CM9 .zip file.
Reboot.
Reboot into recovery.
Flash ICS Google apps.
Enjoy!

Github

Huge thanks:
vinvinvinster - Getting me back into Android development and initial CM9 port!
intervigil - Being a freaking genius.
xkonni - For also being a freaking genius, and making me laugh while I should be working.
rohan - Awesome dude, breaks his back (and his laptop) to bring you guys AOKP .

Any new commits from CM9?

Awesome! My daily driver until CM10 has a working camera. Thank you!

Question though, is there any way to change the nav bar buttons to be normal for recents and then long press recent for menu? I'm not a fan of current set up. If not I'll just wait for CM10.

I'm getting way better battery life with this than cm10. Getting close to 14 hours with careful controlling of wake locks and unnecessary features.

Is video camera something achievable in the foreseeable future? Or shod I just give up on cm9 and wait for cm10?

No it wont, causes boot loops, plus all the fixes are fixed in the kernel trying to get back from recovery/rom boot loops.

Edit: In case someone else tries this in the future.

Just download the rom if not on computer already
Extract the boot.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot erase cache
then boot into recovery
wipe cache/dalvik
reflash cm9
