Hello:

This thread is being started to post *unofficial* kangs (roms) based on Atrix-dev-team's work with CM9 and CM7. ghost_og, crnkoj and I decided to collaborate and have one thread where we post our kangs. What's a Kang? The unofficial definition follows

KANG: unofficial build: as in - you are (mostly) on your own. Please do not contact the CM9 or CM7 teams, or the atrix dev team with issues found in these ROMs. Instead, post questions/issues in this thread.

I will be posting CM9 builds regularly [meaning weekly or a little more frequently]. I will usually test builds for 1-2 hrs before posting. crnkoj will be posting CM7 builds.

If you want to build your own kangs, instructions can be found here:

CM9 - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1450054
CM7 - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1442842


Thanks to the Atrix-Dev team and Turl1 for all their hard work porting CM7/9 to the Atrix.

The next post will contain CM9 specific information.

CM7 can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=23
CM7 Kang 2 reserved: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0&postcount=24

CM9: Why does 2D/camera not work - now that NVidia released the ventana reference libs? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8&postcount=27

CM9 ROM and build note:
Hello:

This post will contain location to the latest unofficial CM9 kang built from the atrix-dev-team repositories. As you may know, CM9 is based on Android 4 better known as ICS or ice cream sandwich.

*** I have tested this build for ~10 hrs before posting. For regular use, I switched to CM9 from CM7 and find CM9 pretty stable for everyday use, with some exceptions:

*** Update 02/02/2012 [one date that reads the same all over the world ] I built an OC/UV enabled kernel for CM9. If interested, get it from this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=152

Known issues:
=========

- Camera doesnt work (yet): WHY not? Nvidia released the tegra libs for ICS - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8&postcount=27 [patience, work in progress ]
- 2D acceleration doesnt work (meaning, occasional glitches in angry bird, and jerky scrolling sometimes)
- Adobe flash - **** If you use dolphin, you might see sites like youtube/vimeo work. That does *not* mean Flash is working: dolphin uses HTML5 versions of those sites. A good test to see if flash works is to use Kongregate and try to play a Flash game.
- Video playback



*** Update: Posted a new Kang today: 02/02/2012 - version 020212. This contains the latest CM9 code from the repo, working FP and screen unlock bug fixes. Release notes here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=146

You can find the Kang here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/hlvw6g
user yann_h has set up a mirror here - it will take a while for the build to be updated, please check version # before downloading: http://yann.huruguen.fr/atrix_kang_cm9.php (Thanks!)

ICS Gapps here:
https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0BxF...3MDRl&hl=en_US


WARNING: If this is your first time flashing CM9 - *remember to wipe/format system, data, and cache* before flashing

WARNING: This is a KANG - while there is no official support available, if you post questions on this thread, I'll try to help as much as possible.

They're is already a dedicated cm9 Kang thread, only it's by the devs who are actually doing the port.

That thread is maintained by the photon-dev team: they develop primarily for the Motorola Photon, and have been kind enough to post a build for Atrix as well. This thread is for unofficial builds from the Atrix-dev team repositories: the folks who are porting ICS for Atrix.

Also - if its by the devs, it cant be a kang

Right now, the setting app havent been enhanced with FP nav code. FP Nav doesnt bother me much: but will try porting the settings app shortly. If I cant get that to work, will make a build w/o FP.

AFAIK, only 2 main difference. Photon team's CM9 has FP navigation already disabled (which would reduce battery consumption to certain level), and Atrix Team's CM9 has got some of the CM settings already working (U need to flash a CMSetting pack). Now we can adjust screen rotation settings and custom backlight levels (which also helps you to reduce battery consumption a lot). Moreover, I like the black People theme on Atrix team's CM9 compared to white theme of Photon Team's CM9.

USB Tethering is not working yet on this rom but Wifi tethering is already working. (I haven't had a chance to try it on Photon Team's rom)
