CyanogenMod 9 is a free, community built distribution of Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
This is a preview build of CM9 for the Samsung Galaxy Player 4. It may cause all the things in the disclaimer to happen, or steal your girlfriend while you are busy flashing ROMs.

Note: Please backup your efs in case of something goes wrong (the zip should backup it but we're never too sure) To do so execute this command:

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/stl3 of=/sdcard/efs.rfs
Preview Install instructions:

1. Download cm-9-20130402-kernel-preflash.zip
md5: 4a900fcddbc3d81d121a7b9c9d4bb0a0
2. Download cm-9-20130408-UNOFFICIAL-ypg1.zip
3. Make all your backups.
4. Remove external sdcard (will be resolved later)
5. Make sure your efs is intact (not blank).
6. Boot into recovery, make more backups.
7. Flash cm-9-20130402-kernel-preflash.zip (temporary workaround for first-time install)
8. Flash cm-9-20130408-UNOFFICIAL-ypg1.zip

Installation Notes:
When you install for the first time, there is a conversion to the new MTD partition layout. The installer will flash the new kernel and reboot. It is possible for this process to hang up on the samsung logo (still working that part out). It is normal to see the Samsung logo appear 3 seperate times during this reboot phase. **Please wait at least a minute before assuming you are stuck.** If this happens, you should extract the boot.img from the installer zip and flash it with heimdall (heimdall flash --kernel boot.img, or other appropriate GUI methods). It should boot back into recovery and continue the installation. Once the install finishes, it should reboot once more back into recovery, which gives you the opportunity to flash your gapps.

**Google Apps are not included in these ROMs. You'll need to install those yourself if you want them. Recommended and highly suggested are the 4.0.4 gapps from goo.im.

Known Issues:
Back Camera: Still pictures work and will be clear although the preview window doesn't focus correctly. Video recording is working?
Front Camera: Still pictures and video works, although it's rotated 90 degrees.
Bluetooth (Turns on, but devices are not visible) Fixed 0405
External sdcard symlink (can still be accessed through /mnt/emmc)

Here's the gapps package if you want them:

Gapps Package Download

Also guys when you will enter into recovery using the three fingers method, it will do the same as like when you installed it the first time. (It will reboot 3 TIMES so don't panic if you think of it as a bootloop.)

Forgot that one too, if you have an external SD card inside your device, it's recommended that you remove it prior to the install. (if not well CWM will give you an infinite bootloop of installation aborted. The only way I've seen to fix it is to format your sdcard but I didn't want to go all through this soo...)

You will need a FULL EFS folder to install this rom as the installation script will check it. If you don't have it, you will have CWM bootloops. YOU'VE BEEN ADVISED!!
