MadLuca and MadMax97 from mrmad.net put together this “samsung-like” CyanogenMod9 based ROM. The goal is to get a stable, complete AND bugfree Android 4 ROM with TouchwWiz look and feel.
To accomplish this, CM9’ nightly was chosen as a base:it is the best-coded Android 4 ROM (in our oppinion) without any major bugs like the ‘media bug’ and ‘external SD-Card’ bug.

Can you help us?


We do not ask for donations but you could help us a lot with a simple click!


It will not take too much of your time but will make us totally happy!
We are taking part in a website/blog contest and if you like our work, it would be nice if you voted for
www.mrmad.net here
Be fair and please just vote once!
We are currently inserted in the second play-off match (Duell2)

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!



HOTFIX: Please redownload the ROM if you are on mnics version. User Zoran1 found a videoplayback bug in mnics-version (not mnics fault). It is fixed now. Sorry

Animations: We moved back to stock animations. If you are looking for the animations from previous versions, flash Psynshift animations by Zeitgeist

Features

UPDATE: For new content see here:

This time there is only a version with mnics-kernel. If you want semaphore with largram - flash the kernel and the largeram-patch by f4k!

TouchWiz Icons

TW Task Manager App
SGSII weather widget and digital clock widget added
Samsung Appstore, Memo-App, PlayMusic added
ICS Bootanimation (sharpened)
Google Apps added
Updated Google Mail (for german users who can't find it in play store)
TouchWiz Calculator added
Google Backup and Restore working
Nova Launcher with new drawer Icon
Data Fix (29.03) included (if you already use a later data fix you most probably will have to full wipe)
Swype added
MrMad App added (removeable)
720P Fix for Large RAM
File Explorer (Holo-Design)
Weather Love (Holo-Design)
Voodoo Sound App
Air Droid
AppZorter
Removed some apps


Installation-Notes

If you are already using an ICS ROM, you only have to wipe cache and dalvik cache before upgrading to TWICS. If you are using one of wendigogo’s april-Data-Fix you most probably will have to full wipe.

Please full wipe and flash the zip twice if you are coming from Gingerbread, SlimICS or you are facing any problems.

We know there are a lot of ROMs out there, but we did it for ourselves and thought there might be some people interested in a bug free and Samsung like ICS ROM.

Will try soon, as you know we are having a new nightly every 2 or 3 days (in fact we have April 19 nightly right now, and 1.0.1s Semaphore). Are you going to update this rom so frequently?. Thx for your work and good luck:)!!

I'm using CM9 12april now, I will try this rom tomorrow.

If you will keep this rom stable, don't give it updates nightly, may be week or two with major updates.

Anyway, thanks for your work :)

    We will try our best. In fact those CM9-builds are Nightlys, they need to be tested before. And there won't be that many changes from Nightly to Nightly. If there are bigger changes, let us know and we will try to update as fast as possible.
