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.

Yup... That's practically the norm outside of USA. Carrier-injected crapware isn't the norm here either, where virtually no carrier offer subsidized phones.

Manufacturer-injected bloatware, however, is an entirely different story. Thus, I see CyanogenMod as a necessity rather than fun. In fact, I'd be swearing at every Android device ever made if CyanogenMod didn't exist.
