I’ll admit it; I’m a flashaholic. The only problem is that I don’t like that each nightly update is at least 150MB for my particular device. Even though I have unlimited data, it’s still not cool to either wait a while for the latest update to download via my carrier (non-LTE) or having to wait until I get home to do so via WiFi. Granted, this is probably not an issue to most, but if you like your nightlies, then you’ll definitely like this little gem of an app called CyanDelta which makes managing those various CyanogenMod updates a much more easier process.

Good news for those of you sporting a Sony Xperia Ion. Official CyanogenMod nightlies are now available for your device. Codenamed aoba, the first CM9 build for the Ion is ready for download from get.cm. Also remember to flash the GApps .zip after flashing CM9 to get the latest Google apps installed. Links below.
A late night tweet from CyanogenMod revealed CM9 stable ROMS are now ready for consumption. This marks the end of the CM9 branch, moving forward only critical bug fixes will be merged. Earlier in the night they only released it for the Galaxy Nexus, but now the majority of Cyanogenmod’s supported devices are ready for download. Moving forward the CyanogenMod team will focus solely on CM 10 Jelly Bean and maintenance of the CM 7 codebase.
Many of you may be wondering why CM 9? Why not give up on it since the team is heavily into CM 10 development? The simple answer is the CyanogenMod team does not like to leave things unfinished. They don’t profit from this at all, and the pure satisfaction of completing a goal is the largest reward. Now, to be more in depth; CM 9 serves as a “release suitable for the masses,” and for those who will not have 100% functioning builds of CM 10 immediately. This is actually really great if you’re not the type of person who is the “early tester” that downloads previews, alphas, betas, or nightly’s.
So, there you have it, I am curious to see how many of you were on CM 7 before this and if you were chomping at the bit for something new and stable. Let us know in the comments!
The CyanogenMod team has started the process of releasing stable builds of CM9. The first device to be released is the Google Galaxy Nexus (Maguro) which was released earlier today. Indications are that release was a bit premature and a very minor update will be rolling out later this evening. Builds for other devices are also anticipated to start appearing on the download page.
CM9 is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The stable builds represent the end of development on CM9 as the CyanogenMod team transitions to work on CM10 based on Jelly Bean.

A little less than a month ago CyanogenMod 9 RC1 (Release Candidate 1) was released with a lot of excitement, but now with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean being all the rave I can see an Ice Cream Sandwich ROM release being easily overlooked. Nonetheless, this is CM and their legions of fans will be happy to know that CM9 RC2 is now available for download including support for several new Samsung Galaxy devices:
The Google Nexus Q has been quite the ambiguous device. Some just don’t quite know what to make of it and what its true potential could be. I feel the sky is the limit on the Nexus Q’s potential, and yesterday has proven just that with the first port of the much popular CyanogenMOD 9 ROM on the device.
With the Samsung Galaxy Nexus‘ source and repositories, the independent developer with the YouTube name of kornk00 was able to port the ROM right over. While WiFi, Bluetooth, and other things are working, sound is currently not working and the system UI crashes frequently. It is safe to say that this is still a work in progress and far from being ready. Surprisingly, Bluetooth pairing does work without the need of a third party hack and was able to pair speakers, keyboards, and use several remote control apps.
If the bugs and other things can be kinked out, this could be a huge step for the Nexus Q. Running apps and browsing through the internet directly from the Q would completely change the dimensions on what this device is capable of. Check out the video after the break to see CM9 on the Nexus Q.

Today the CynaogenMod team announced CM9 support for three U.S. Galaxy S III devices. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Verizon’s version didn’t make the cut. For now they are supporting the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint versions. They did mention the Verizon version and their original intent, but nothing was said about the U.S. Cellular version. Hit the break for their statement.
It’s been quite a while (225 days to be exact) since AOSP released the source code for Android 4.0 ICS. Since then, the team over at CyanogenMod has be toiling away to get it onto as many devices as possible, and today they are announcing that 37 devices are now ready to receive the first release candidate. » Read the rest
The CyanogenMOD team has released a statement regarding their latest Gingerbread builds being released to the masses. The build number is 7.2 and should be ready to download through their website if your phone is supported. This new build should include numerous ICS features being back-ported to your GB device, as well as numerous fixes and enhancements. Also, this could very well be the last CM7 build for certain devices as the team will start moving some devices to CM9 (ICS) in the near future, which is certainly not a bad thing.
We’ve all enjoyed the quality and feature filled ROM that is CyanogenMOD, thus I expect nothing but wonderful things with this new update. Hit up their site to see if your device is supported with this new build! Also, keep note that they are still updating the device compatibility list. So if you don’t see your device in the supported list as of now, that could very well change in the next couple of days as the team is rolling out the update.
It appears the CyanogenMod team have been busy as usual and have a couple nightly builds ready for some of today’s newest devices. Right now you can download a nightly build for both the Transformer Pad 300 and the International version of the Galaxy S III. Since these builds are very early in production you can expect a few quirks along they way but overall response has been fairly positive. All the important things like data, WiFi, and Bluetooth are working so if you’ve been waiting to trick out your new i9300 or TF300T, I’d say give it a go. Head to the source link for further details and download links. Happy hacking!
