FAQ:

How can I update this ROM?
Unless exceptions aren't mentioned, you simply have to flash the latest ZIP-file of the ROM using CWM. You files should stay untouched, but still it is always recommended to make a backup.

Does it support my language?
CyanogenMod (9) is multilingual, so it supports all common language in the world.

How can I update my basebandversion?
a) You can flash the Baseband from here.
or
b) Make a Nandroid backup of your current CM9 -> wipe everything -> Flash the latest stock ROM from your region via ODIN ->
flash ClockWorkMod -> wipe everything -> flash CM9 -> restore data.

What is CWM ?
CWM stands for ClockWorkMod. It is a custom Recovery which enables complete backups (Nandroid backup) and complete restores.
(HowTo install)

What are GApps?
GApps stands for GoogleApps. Google Apps = Google Play Store, Google Calender ...
Due to copyright, CyanogenMod is not allowed to implement GoogleApps directly in their ROMs, that is why you have to install it manually.

How do I install or update Google Mail?
Due to copyright, CyanogenMod is not allowed to implement Google Mail directly in their ROMs, that is why you have to install/update it manually:
Follow this link on your device and open it with the Google Play Store: click here

Where do I find the external SD on CM9 ?
The directory has changed (The following are the directories before swapping):
external(physical) SD card: /external_sd/ or /mnt/external_sd/
internal SD card: /sdcard/ or /mnt/sdcard/

How do I swap the internal and external SD on CM9 ?
Settings -> Storage->Menu-Button->Storage configuration (a restart might be necessary)

How do I activate MTP on CM9 ?
Settings ->Storage->Menu-Button->USB connection->mark MTP

How do I enable brightness control for the notification bar?
Settings -> System ->Status bar ->Activate brightness control
Now you can use the notification bar to control the brightness.(wipe on it left and right)
Source

My phone restarts randomly after update?
Note: All your Data will stay untouched (Backup/Restore)
1.Open ClockWorkMod->backup and restore->backup to externl sdcard
2.wipe data/factory reset
3.wipe cache partition(not sure if needed)
4.install zip from sdcard->choose the latest CM9 version
5.advanced restore from external sdcard->choose backup->Restore data
6.reboot

The battery of my device drains rapidly fast, what can I do?
After flashing a new ROM you will have to do several(5+) charging cycle in order to get a calibrated battery.
There are also battery calibration apps, such as Battery Calibration which help you with the battery calibration. Long story short: Be patient.

My Data connections / Adding APNs doesn't work, what can I do?
It is a known bug in (Alpha 1). Flash this zip to solve this bug.

What is a funny SIM card ?
A funny SIM card, is a SIM card which provides GSM connection, but does not let you enable data connection, because APNs can't be added.(only on CyanogenMod)Flash this zip to solve this bug.

Maybe try this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...A0c2lsZW5jZSJd

I am not sure if this is integrated in CM9.

Alright, i was just installed Silent Ringer, it does as what i want.
But both Silent Ringer & Flip4Silence only mute Incoming call and not notification.
Im more looking for mute notification because it takes longer to mute(need to unlock screen then touch the status bar) while to mute Incoming Call, just press the volume up/down.
It would be good if the Motion Turn Over feature integrated in CM9 setting without any 3rd party app
