You need a torrent client to download the file. I use utorrent.

Also running now. I loaded it on top of Perfection rom.
Wow, the ICS unlocker has camera and unlock feature and no old-style unlocker in the other half of screen (that's fresh, though this is how it was intended to be).
Getting used to this rom.
First impressions - running smoothly.
Seems like no playstore installed so need to understand how to access playstore (trying the web though download didn't seem to start) to get titanium backup. Also trying to see how to access filesystem.
Edit - just need to load gapps from first post - seems like it's a must, not a nice to have.
Some observations - haptic feedback doesn't work on some buttons which appears random. Also no backlight on the capacitive buttons though they work fine.
Edit - found ability to enable capacitive buttons backlight in Settings -> Advanced->Sensors, though that keeps backlight on whenecer screen is active. And lockscreen customizations are impressive.
Also interestingly I noticed in terminal emulator that SD folder lacks external sd card.
Edit - connected through USB cable. Dalvik works fine, can view files in file browser. Interesting. internal sdcard is mounted in mnt/emmc while external sdcard is mnt/sdcard. Also windows recognizes to removable drives when the phone is connected but those are not accessible. Again, need to read up on basic CM9 functionality.
Overall very smooth, no FC so far.
I'm looking to see feedback from those who may be familiar with CM9 from using other phones (this is totally new to me).
Another thing (not exactly related but what can make initial setup a lot simpler) that I need to read more about is the way to get apps stored externally as done in Hybrid rom if I'm not mistaken) - that way the apps get ported to whatever rom you install. I need to understand how that works.

And yes, setting DPI to 213 enables tablet UI, as already mentioned. Now I see why capacitive buttons are not backlit. Though in tablet mode the dock disappears. Thinking of trying go launcher but not sure if trebuchet-integrated settings items will work well with that change or will become redundant.

Also as mentioned already the camera preview is messed up.

I'm going to keep seeding the torrent for a while, but I'm glad it's already mirrored.

Camera preview is all jacked up for me. It takes pictures fine, but the preview looks all screwed up.
