CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.0.4 (ICS), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

NOTE: THIS ROM IS NOW SUPPORTED BY AN OFFICIAL BROADCOMCM MEMBER WITH THIS DEVICE, ALBERTO96. HERE IS HIS THREAD:

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.
 *
 * Submitting bug reports on nightly builds is the leading 
 * cause of male impotence.
 */

CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

BroadcomCM is based on the CyanogenMod Project. Our goal is to create ROMs based on CyanogenMod Sources for Broadcom BC21553 devices. All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the broadcomCM Github repo. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

DEAR KANGERS
If you're going to reuse our work, which we're doing for free, be fair and give proper credits.
This is the only payment we're really demanding and we deserve it to be mentioned because of the countless hours we've put into this project.
Open-Source doesn't meant Out-of-Respect!!!

The broadcomCM team would like to thank everyone involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging & documenting! Enjoy!

Story:
As most of you all might know.
In the last month Broadcom was very kind to us and released the HW drivers for our devices ( BCM21553 )
These sources where based upon android 4.0.1 and thus not working on 4.0.4.
We as Team BroadcomCM (SpaceCaker and Bieltv.3) have been working from the release date till now to make these compatible with 4.0.4 ICS and tested these to make sure all edits where right.
During this we worked almost 24/7 to get it proper.
As first result we had it working on AOSP ICS 4.0.4 ( SpaceCaker Build ) But sadly on this we didn't had touchscreen working and Colors not proper.
Later we build on CM9 (Bieltv.3 build) and found out that colors as in previous build weren't proper.
After tons of work and such we found out that our problem was laying in something very simple, something we overlooked during the editing process. After Biel tried the fix it suddenly worked like it should and from then with our latest Team edits we managed to get the HW drivers ported the proper way.
Thanks to our amazing team we have got HW to work proper now.
Also A lot of thanks to Broadcom for releasing the initial drivers.

@bieltv.3
i've tested it and it is simply amazing
it is too smooth for this phone :D

so these are the bugs that i found

something like pin keypad,status bar,lockscreen need to be resized

-easter egg lags a bit

-videos work but colors are swapped

-i've installed gapps for ics but play store doesn't download anything

-rotation is a bit buggy
if i put the phone in the normal position screen rotate to landscape
but if i rotate the phone to right screen comes to portrait

-bluetooth turn on fast but when i turn it off android.phone.com crashes

btw good work
i hope that you will fix remaining bugs :)

@SpaceCaker I think what devilyuri meant was something like this:
XnFFRyo.jpg

where the icon labels overlap the dock divider.

And the Bluetooth issue :
FDCIqsp.jpg

Also, the Voice Dialer FCs instantly:
ZjU5EVX.jpg


@OP, you might also want to include a file browser. I can't install apps now... :(

EDIT : Also, the terminal emulator receives a Segmentation Fault whenever it requests su permissions. Happens even after updating su binary.

Also, about the accelerometer, flashing the accelerometer fix for other AOSP/CM7 ROMs bricks the phone. The only remedy is to disable auto-rotation...

But it is a great ROM. Waiting for nightly XD (if possible lol)
