It didn’t take long for the guys responsible for CyanogenMod to swirl the Android 4.0 source code into their popular custom ROM. Early builds of CyanogenMod 9 for the Nexus S and Samsung Galaxy S are already picking up some polish, according to Koushik Dutta, the developer of CM9 for the Nexus S, and others. Currently tagged as an alpha build, Dutta reported via his Google+ page that the Nexus S CM9 alpha is performing well as a stable daily driver-type ROM, video playback and MMS issues not withstanding.

For the Galaxy S, a beta version of CM9 has found its way to xda for users to download and take for a spin. While plenty of minor issues abound, the ROM is for the most part fully-functional. One nasty side effect has been a tendency for the Galaxy S version of the software to completely wipe a user’s SD card, so there are obviously some risks involved. Head over to the links below for downloads and more info.
