Installation instructions: (updated)
Download ALpha 4 and ICS gapps
Reboot into recovery
Nandroid Backup (optional, but good if you want to be able to go back to your exact previous setup if you are unsatisfied)
Wipe/Factory Reset
Install Alpha 4 + Gapps
Power on phone, might as well setup your accounts and such while you're here
Reboot into recovery
DO NOT WIPE
Install latest build from h8rift
Enjoy latest build/fixes with working data

IMPORTANT
As of Alpha 4, the app switch key is returned to the app switcher function. The menu button is now implemented in the space to the right of the app switch button. Obviously the new menu button isn't visible, but a menu press will be triggered when you touch the area to the right of the app switcher button. See below if you don't want this new feature.

Alpha 5

Google Apps

and choose the package for CM 9.0.x

This is for all those who were unhappy with the new menu button implementation:

Flash this zip to revert to the old app-switcher as menu button mapping (to make supporting 2 maps easier for me, the invisible button will function as app-switcher)

Old mapping 218.37 KB

Flash this zip to go back to the new mapping.
