New Build Of CM9 For Samsung Galaxy Note Brings Improved S-Pen Support, Corrected Video Recording


Got a new Samsung Galaxy Note, but itching for some TouchWiz-free ICS action? You’re in luck because the fine CyanogenMod team has been hard at work and released the newest build of CM9 for the GT-N7000 version of the popular smartphone/tablet hybrid. Unlike the preliminary builds of CM9 which lacked many features, the newest build includes many of the anticipated device-specific features such as corrected S-pen support, in addition to corrected issues involving the microphone and video recording. As you might imagine, while the newest version of the CM9 ROM is looking good for the most part, there are still some minor issues to be worked out including the speakerphone not working properly. As always, the CyanogenMod team advises extreme caution when attempting to flash the build onto Galaxy Note devices.
