I have built this CM9 UNOFFICIAL port for my Legend, initially motivated to prove this phone runs ICS. Install it and fun it !!!
DISCLAIMER: This is a rom intended for somehow devs and enthusiasts, in beta development stage and, although rather responsive and stable, it could be not suitable for daily use.
This is the actual working/not working list:
1) touchscreen, haptic response
2) GSM functions (calling, texting, data)
4) wifi, wifi strength indicator
6) browser, market, gapps (google play, gmail, gmail accounts, etc.. ), and other apps (Tapatalk, Chess Lite, etc.)
11) overclock (really not necessary since HWA, it can work at 600MHz; if you do it, not beyond to 787 mhz)
15) tones, ringtones, notifications, alarms
17) Stock Music player,
18) most of widgets (Bookmarks, Gallery preview, Time and Weather, GMail, etc.)
19) USB tethering
20) USB mass storage
21) FM radio, using spirit FM App and setting for msm7x30 Method (thanks to ranger4740)
23) Wifi tethering with OpenGarden
24) Hw Acceleration (Stock Gallery, Live Wallpapers, Video, Youtube, Google Maps App, etc.).
26) Camera (photos, preview, panoramic, camcording=> with Camera Illusion app)
27) Youtube HQ / Video HQ.
Working but not fully
DOWNLOAD & INSTALL
MEDIAFIRE: cm-9.1.0-UNOFFICIAL-BETA8-legend.zip [UPDATED DEC 07]
* All donations are welcomed; if you desire it, you can invite me to a beer
Thanks very much to everyone, your contrib does possible I spend more time on this project !!
Prerequisites : hboot >= 1.02.0000
1.- Wipe data/reset factory
2.- Wipe cache
3.- Advanced -> wipe dalvik
4.- Install cm9 (it takes a time)
5.- Follow the wizard if applicable
7.- Install gapps
* These steps work for me.
** Check the latest available radios for your Location/Carrier

You can also try this alternative method
Youtube HQ / Video HQ is working, thanks to Ganster41 libstagefright fix for Video decoding. However, embebed videos in browser are shown as a black area
Headset icon missing (although headset works)
Working, but third part app is needed for:
- wifi sleep (dont use native wifi sleep)
Native camcording is working. Videos are accessibles by means of a file manager.
HBOOT >= 1.02.0000 is needed. If you has got problems with installation and a different HBOOT than 1.02.0000 (0.43.0000, 1.01.0000), consider upgrading HBOOT to 1.02.0000 or S-OFF.
TWEAKS & TRICKS:
- Use "Use wifi in suspension always" + third part wifi timer. Otherwise, native wifi sleep does not work and you could get reboots.
- Voice Search : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=651
- Because AMOLED display, browsing with inverted colors save a lot battery and avoid overheating of display.
- Camcording works with third part app as Camera Illusion.

And thanks to donators, too
1.- Is this rom using the new Adreno200 drivers for ICS?
Yes. They are used with kernel enabled gpu acceleration since ALPHA3.
2.- What is the status of camera?
At BETA3 all camera is working (photos, preview, camcording and panoramic). Camcording works with a third part app as Camera Illusion.
3.- Can i connect a usb flash drive to the phone using a usb otg cable?
USB On The Go is not supported. This feature is supported for a few recent high-end devices, such as Samsung Galaxy S2.
4.- Can performance get better?
Yes you can try out this tweaks http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=551. Besides, you can overclocking it with caution.
5.- about GPS
* flash the latest radio,
* dont flash another gps libs from out
6.- Is this usable for daily usage?
Rather yes, it is.
NEW 7.- What about incoming call issue?
Well, I experimented this issue only one time with beta4 release, and for this reason I did not include this issue in previous release. Then, and motivated for trying out other more tested kernels, I have switched to cryptomilk kernel (credtis to modpunk/cryptomilk/droste), used sucessfully in ohter htc msm7227 devices as marvel, aria, chachacha.
