Cyanogen Mod 9 Progress Report


It seems like CM team is facing lot of difficulties with the development of CM9 as Icecream Sandwich contains lot of changes from previous versions  that require updated graphics drivers and since these drivers are usually closed, one has to wait until device or devkit using these drivers is released. Due to this reason, CM9 may not be available for many devices. Currently, CM9 can be compiled to work on Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Wi-Fi and T-Mobile versions), HP Touchpad and Motorola Xoom. We should soon see devices with Samsung's Exynos  chipset and Qualcomm MSM8660 and 7×30 based chipsets get CM9 port while support for earlier devices based on QSD8x50 is still a big ?.

Team Cyanogen has removed CMParts application and added custom features into the main settings. They have also decided to cut down on tweak options that were provied in CM7 as they feel that the options are too many and that they are now looking for a balance between tweakability and works out-of-the-box style.

Head here to read more on this.
