I have sold my Galaxy S2 and will be getting my Galaxy Nexus on the 25th of January, 2011. As such, from that date onward, I will no longer update this thread. I will gladly copy and paste the template of this post to anyone who wants to continue doing this. If you wish to continue this thread, please PM me (do not post here). If no-one who is willing to continue this thread contacts me by the 25th, I will message the mods to close and unsticky this thread.
This is not the place to voice your opinions, nor is it the place to ask your questions. It is, however, a place to get the latest updates as they come in from the CM9 team.
My aim is to have one place to receive CM9 updates, instead of having to go through several websites / G+ accounts / Twitter accounts.
Disclaimer: I am in no way related to the CM9 team

Frequently Asked Questions
[Last updated on 03/01/12]
I downloaded the latest CM9 build, but [XXX] isn't working!
Search! Search the CM9 threads, search Google, but for the love of God - please first search for the answer! If you did, and could not find it, you have three options:
1) Read this,
it might very well answer your question.
2) Check out the live support chat
But search first.
3) Go here
and ask your question. But search first. Did I mention you should search first? You should search first.
In any case, if your question or query is not directly related to development
, please do NOT post in the development section!
I can't connect my phone to my PC! What can I do?
This is a known issue. There are several ways you go around this - either by downloading to your PC a program called Droid Explorer, or by downloading any of the wi-fi file transfer apps on the market.
When I start up the Superuser app, it crashes! What do I do?
Users are reporting success by searching for Superuser updater on the Market, installing it, and forcing an upgrade.
I can't buy apps from my phone! What can I do?
This is a known bug. The only way to buy apps right now is through your home computer. Refunding is reported working on the phone, though.
When I download a big app from the market, I get an error message! What can I do?
This is a known bug. Nothing can currently be done about it, unless you already downloaded the app and have it backed up. In that case, there is an advanced work around that you can find by searching the CM9 threads.
I heard Codeworkx got a Galaxy Nexus, is he going to stop supporting the Galaxy SII?
Nope, not currently. Actually, it means he can use his Nexus for day to day use, and only focus on development on his GSII. This is in our favor.
I found and downloaded an ICS ROM by Airbus360, I heard its better than CM9, is that true?
Apparently, Airbus360 simply took what the CM team has been building, added a few useless lines of code (read: they don't do anything), and claimed that its faster. He also pretty much claims to be doing most of the hard work when in fact, he isn't adding much of anything.
If you have anymore frequently asked questions to add, please PM me and I'll add them as quickly as possible.
