Important notice: I will no longer be maintaining this build.

I will put my effort in jokersax11 roms since it will be an original Atrix build (so better than a port).

jokersax11 CM9 thread
Download page

The goal was to provide the Atrix community with a taste of ICS (goal I think I manage to accomplished), for time reason I will put my effort on helping the great Joker since is progress in it's Atrix CM9 build have now equal (or surpass) the work of the best port I could do.

Thanks to all of you for your kind word and cheering, I will make sure that our beloved Atrix get the best he deserve.

First of all I would like to thanks the Atrix Dev Team, wrldsuksgo2mars, jokersax11 and the Photon dev team. Without them this build would have never seen the light.

I've compile the Photon ICS CM9 alpha13 for the Atrix.
I will maintain this build updated with the latest change the Photon dev team (jokersax11) are making and try to correct bug releated to the Atrix.

  • Hardware Acceleration
  • Camera (obviously... like almost every ICS roms) The Entire camera API was rewritten for ICS, the current Camera drivers dont work (a lot of people are already working on this issue).
Know bugs
  • Gallery show a littlle graphic wiggle when changing screens due to the lack of Hardware Acceleration.
  • The wifi does not work after the initial install, trigger the activation and reboot the phone, after that you will have no more problem.
  • The Softkey light turn on after few minutes of use.
  • Media scan not happening on boot.
  • When the battery is full charged, the battery icon on the notification bar disappears. Because of this, it has another amazing function, it shows how much percent you have overcharged (thanks to alistair3149)
  • Wallpaper is unscrollable in Trebuchet, use Nova launcher to use this function. It's a bug with the launcher (thanks to wywerny)
  • Getting a random offset number during installation, due to a bug in the installation script (no to worry the install is completed when the offset happens). (thanks to munchkers13)
  • Facebook sync dont work with ICS, you can use friendcaster (thanks to mitchell.23) or HaxSync.
If what your looking for is not listed here, then I did not find out it's not working or it's working

Alpha13 test build 8
  • Really early camera support (no connection problem to the camera, but still no image from both front and back camera)
  • Fix gallery sync issue with Picasa and Google+
  • Recompile build.prop
  • Recompile boot.img
  • Replace RomManager by RomToolbox
  • Remove PinyinIME.apk from system app
  • Added the latest default launcher version

  • Fix Google map issue (if you dont want to flash gapps again just for the map use

Keep in mind, before installing that this build is currently in alpha stage and still pledge by bug, I take no responsibility if you broke your phone whit it.

Finger Print Scanner
I'm also interested in knowing if the scanner works. I'll be trying it tonight if I'm sober enough to flash it after the bar crawl.

No the fingerprint sensor don't work, but I will look into it. Since the new major feature of ICS is Facelock I'm currently working on making the camera driver to work (it's currently taking all the time I got for dev right now).

Successfully flashed. Everything that suppose to works are working great so far. So much improvement from last time i flash this. Only thing missing is my softkey backlight doesn't come on.

Edit: Softkey light turn on after few minutes of use.
