Default [ROM][22 JUN 12] CyanogenMod 9 Alpha Builds [4.0.4][CM 2.6.35.14-ICS]

CyanogenMod 9 Alpha for HTC Desire S


Disclaimer:
Code:
We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear
war, or the current economic crisis caused by you following these directions.
YOU are choosing to make these modificiations, and if you point the finger at 
us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
Notice:
Code:
These are Alpha quality builds and are very much still in development.

Features may not work, or may crash, they may alternate between functioning
and non-functioning between builds. Please look over the lists below before
reporting suspected bugs.

Please note: Currently only the included kernel is supported. Other AOSP
kernels may not be fully compatible with ICS and may cause issues.
Work on CM10 can be discussed here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1776256

Why are we waiting for HTC to release the ICS kernel source code?
Click here to read the full explanation
Click here to see the current state of porting the 3.0 kernel

Installation (From any other ROM):
Code:
In recovery:
 - Wipe all (system, data, cache)
 - Flash cm-9-XXXXXXXX-UNOFFICIAL-saga.zip
   (where X is date of the latest build)
 - (Optional) Flash Google Apps
Installation (Upgrade from previous CM9 builds):
Code:
In recovery:
 - Wipe cache
 - Wipe dalvik-cache
 - Flash cm-9-XXXXXXXX-UNOFFICIAL-saga.zip
   (where X is date of the latest build)
IMPORTANT - Devices unlocked via htcdev.com:
Code:
If you unlocked your phone via htcdev.com, you must flash the included
boot.img after flashing the ROM in recovery:
 - Boot into fastboot, either by:
   - Turning phone on whilse holding VOLUME DOWN, or
   - adb reboot bootloader, or
   - using an option in your recovery (eg. Reboot Bootloader)
 - Connect your phone to your PC and copy the boot.img from the ROM .zip
    to the same place as fastboot.exe and issue the following command:
   - fastboot flash boot boot.img

Failing to follow these instructions on a htcdev.com unlocked device will
cause the ROM to fail to boot, or will cause other issues.
.
Known Bugs:
  • FM Radio not fully functional (Hardware should be capable, no CM FM app yet)
  • Random minor corruption on rear-camera stills taken at 5MP
  • Random reboots caused by kernel oops (Under heavy graphics load)
  • USB tethering RNDIS MAC address is randomized on each boot

Credits & Thanks:
KanocX for the very generous hosting of these ROMs.

Also, a big thank you to everyone who has donated and supported our work!

Just paid ones, you can download any free or previously purchased ones. You just can't currently make purchases in the market. I'm working on it =)

@nexx: will updating from cm9 alpha be as easy as updating with current cm7 nightly builds ? By now I just delete caches and install new nightlies. Will this procedure be the same when using your cm9 alpha/beta/final builds ?

I am asking because I intend to do a clean install with your cm9 alpha build and setup all my applications. Then it would be great if we could just flash newer versions on top of it. Or does switching between alpha/beta/final builds need clean install ? In that case I would have to wait until final release, because it is too much effort to completely setup the phone every time a new version is released.

You should be able to just wipe the cache / dalvik cache. I test upgrading between the builds so if a full wipe is needed I'll try and catch it first =)
