PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "ICS, we hardly knew ye. Builds for CyanogenMod 9 stable will be rolling out to our servers tonight. As noted before, this will be the end of the line for the ICS branch of our code; only critical bug fixes will be merged moving forward. [...] Tonight's release is for the majority of our ICS supported devices, the stragglers will catch up, and we will leave the door open for merging in additional devices from maintainers, external and internal. The team itself, will focus solely on Jelly Bean and maintenance of the CM 7 codebase." Already running the CM10/Jelly Bean previews on my SII, and while clearly not as polished yet as CM9, it works just fine. Great work.

I really have to ask, why are you have your mom use CM or any custom ROM?

Because usually CM is more stable than what is provided by the OEM or carrier, not to mention getting rid of CarrierIQ and all the rest of that shit they stick on there. As long as they don't have to update it (and they usually won't) running CM is often a much more pleasant experience for the non-techie as long as they have someone who can install it for them.
