CyanogenMod Gives CM9 Progress Update (Don’t Look Now, Original DROID Owners)


Cyanogen’s updated the community on their progress with developing the latest version of their highly-revered custom ROM, CyanogenMod 9. Right now, devices with TI OMAP4, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660/7X30, and Samsung Exynos will be the focus.

Over time, they hope to get all devices back to the Qualcomm QSD8250 (Nexus One chipset) up and going with some Ice Cream Sandwich. Some tablets with Tegra 2 will also be getting support, such as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the ASUS Transformer.

Oh, and as for that original Motorola DROID? Well, that phone is just long at the tooth now – it’s quite too old for this tasty treat. Sorry folks, but most of you should be due for upgrades to the Galaxy Nexus anytime now so you’re in good shape regardless.

For the time being, Nexus S owners can dig into the current version of CM9 themselves if they want a sneak peak at what’s to come for many devices. Look under Koush’s section of ROM Manager to get going. [Cyanogen, thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Go CyanogenMod Team! Can’t wait for CM9’s release.

  2. I hope the omission of Tegra 2 phones is an oversight…

    1. Steve had a G2X so it’s definitely not an oversight

      1. The CM team has a early private build of CM9 on the G2x running great since thanksgiving night… Hopefully we see nightly soon ;-)

  3. Damn it! No love for the Droid. I Hopefully I can win a replacement from the Holidroid

  4. Jutst shows how crap Tegra 2 is really…even they don’t wanna support it.
    Never getting a nVidia for my phone.

    1. they don’t want to support tegra 2 right now because nvidia doesn’t give enough support to the open source community.
      if nvidia released the source of some more tegra 2 drivers then there’d be plenty of CM devs working on CM9 for tegra 2 devices.

  5. CM9 Alpha’s for the Nexus S are so stable, I don’t even care if they release another CM update. (Well I guess Theme Chooser would be nice.) I’m absolutely loving ICS. Except I can’t stand the empty space when you remove the search bar, come on Google just let me put something there.

  6. What about Hummigbirders?

    1. i9000 has a port

  7. Just because Tegra isn’t the first to be supported doesn’t mean it won’t get support.

  8. When can we expect a stable build of Android for the HP Touchpad???

    1. Yeah, I’m waiting for this

    2. hopefully before too long…

    3. I second this motion. Although I’d rather see a beta CM9 than a stable CM7

  9. Y u no have Samsung Hummingbird Love? :(

  10. I wouldn’t want to put this on my Droid anyways.  It barely runs Froyo/Gingerbread.  I would expect ICS to be a complete slide show on it due to the lack of RAM available.

  11. Well really those of us OG DROIDers already knew this. The Handset didn’t handle Gingerbread all that well so we knew that was pretty much it for the device. 

  12. The ICS CM9 pre-alpha (build #5) on my SGS Captivate has been remarkably stable for an “alpha”. The only major things that don’t work yet is Video Recording and h/w acceleration (waiting on eventual driver source) – everything else: smooth as buttuh.  Check it out here:

  13. I bet my OG Incredible will run this like a champ.
