Installation instructions: (updated)
Download ALpha 4 and ICS gapps
Reboot into recovery
Nandroid Backup (optional, but good if you want to be able to go back to your exact previous setup if you are unsatisfied)
Wipe/Factory Reset
Install Alpha 4 + Gapps
Power on phone, might as well setup your accounts and such while you're here
Reboot into recovery
DO NOT WIPE
Install latest build from h8rift
Enjoy latest build/fixes with working data

IMPORTANT
As of Alpha 4, the app switch key is returned to the app switcher function. The menu button is now implemented in the space to the right of the app switch button. Obviously the new menu button isn't visible, but a menu press will be triggered when you touch the area to the right of the app switcher button. See below if you don't want this new feature.

and choose the package for CM 9.0.x

This is for all those who were unhappy with the new menu button implementation:

Flash this zip to revert to the old app-switcher as menu button mapping (to make supporting 2 maps easier for me, the invisible button will function as app-switcher)

Old mapping 218.37 KB

Flash this zip to go back to the new mapping.

Thanks for posting this I never got my build up. I've been running one since Friday and in my build I believe that rotation is working.

Pretty much everything else in my build sucks though haha

Ill upstream my changes soon.

No color banding anywhere so far on this rom! Worth not having wifi just to cure my ocd. Can anyone else try uninstalling an app and report if your color banding is gone?

Wait so the color banding is a "sense" thing?

I don't think so but it is definitely a software issue. My note had it and the ice leak mostly took care of it.

In the android system itself its a huge improvement. When you look at images on Google of gradients you can still see it if you are zoomed in but again its a big difference

    Status Update

    Quick update on the status of this ROM, I have some summer reading due tomorrow that I've barely started so it will be short.

    I haven't been able to work on CM9 for a while because I've been too busy. My cousins were in town for 2 weeks then I went to I/O.

    I probably won't be updating this ROM until kernel source is finally released or Jelly Bean is open sourced and we can fix some more bugs.
    intervigil is working on getting our repos merged into the official CM repos, so this will eventually be an officially supported device.
    Once Jelly Bean is pushed to AOSP I will be hard at work to port that to our wonderful phones, until then I am using my new Galaxy Nexus as my primary phone just because the software is so great.
