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.

Because usually CM is more stable than what is provided by the OEM or carrier


Totally agree. I have been running unofficial builds of CM9 for the ATT Galaxy Note for the last 2 or so months, and just upgraded to the official nightlies.

I have zero problems with it, runs like a well oiled machine. I could easily see the advantage of giving a non-techy a phone running CM - it is by far a better, more uniform UI than the stock Touchwiz mess that Samsung ships with the device. I am totally sold on CM now. As Thom mentioned in an article a while back, Samsung, HTC, etc. should all just give up and adopt CM...
