CM9 is now available for the original Galaxy Tab

So any of you sporting the original Galaxy Tab have likely realized by now you’re never going to see an official ICS update. Don’t let it get you down though cause there’s an alternative that in all likely hood is even better. The Galaxy Tab is now supported by CyanogenMod 9. This device was added just recently so there are still some kinks, such as the camera not working; a typical omission at this stage in development. You’ll also have to build this one from source. If those aren’t hurdles for you check in at the XDA thread for full instructions.

By the way if you have a Galaxy Tab of the 10.1 variety, I have it on good authority that a certain kang of CM9 is a brilliant. You can check that one out here.
