Stable builds of CyanogenMod 9 going out tonight

The CyanogenMod team has announced that CyanogenMod 9 will be rolling out to their servers tonight. They’ve mentioned that the majority of the devices which were officially on their radar for Ice Cream Sandwich will be getting stable builds, but a few “stragglers” will be left behind for a short time.

This is great, but when there’s Jelly Bean ready for consumption folks may wonder why the team didn’t just skip this one. Their reasoning is because they don’t like to leave things unfinished, and I’d say that’s a pretty damn good reason.

 

They also want people to have a taste of at least one modern version of Android while they get to work on the next. Kudos to the team for that one. But there’s still the issue of Jelly Bean to take care of.

You’ll be happy to know that they’ll be moving on from CyanogenMod 9 right away to begin work on CyanogenMod 10. No new features will be added to CM9, but should you choose to flash it you’ll still be getting updates to fix critical bugs.

One more thing to note is that this will effectively kill nightlies for CyanogenMod 9 but that’s because nightlies for CyanogenMod 10 will be taking its place.

There are no stable builds just yet (you’ll see one on the server but it’s not meant to be downloaded) but be sure to check this link later on and get the download specific to your device. [CyanogenMod]

    Typical innit, was only 24 hours ago I switched up to Kang CM10 cos a couple of 9 bugs had wound me up so much.

    *sigh*, if only HTC actually supported their year old phones, Inc2, IncS, and TB. Having an Inc2 with no kernel or source released CM9 and 10 are still very buggy on my device, and Sense is beyond garbage.

    If I buy another Android phone, It wouldn’t be a non-Nexus ever again.

    This will probably be the last ROM I flash onto my aged SGS1 Captivate as soon as it shows up for download at: http://get.cm/?device=captivatemtd&type=stable

    My ol’ cappy went from: rooted stock TouchWiz (eclair), to Cognition (froyo), to CM7 (gingerbread), to CM9 (ics) alphas&nightlies. Might put Jelly on it much later, but it’s the kids’ play phone now, so, stable is more important.

    Yay milestone!
