PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It wasn't quick or easy, but we are extremely proud of this release and what it represents for us as a group. The jump from 2.3.7 to 4.0.4 in many ways was a fresh start for this project, and as much as the code changed, the structure and organization of CM as a whole changed as well. It meant a lot of hard work, and late nights, but also a ton of fun. We are in this for the challenge, and the reward is always the satisfaction received when we release it to the masses as a 'stable' product. This RC1 brings us a step forward toward that payoff." CyanogenMod is an absolutely amazing project, an amazing piece of software. Been running CM9 on my SII for months, virtually without issues. It absolutely baffles me OEMs don't just use this instead of their own Sense or TouchWiz crap. This is so much better it's just not funny anymore.

Just watch out for the "brick bug". I just helped a friend root his Galaxy Note GT-N7000 and I was sweating bullets that we would end up bricking the thing because of that inexcusable corruption bug that Samsung introduced into their official ICS kernels. Who here thinks that wasn't just an innocent mistake on Samsung's part?

strange this bricking issue people have experienced. I read and followed the xda instructons, installed a new kernal rooted that and not the Samsung gb one and then proceeded to migrate to a cm9 nightly build.

No issues what so ever. I am now on the Paranoid Rom for my note which is based on cm9 but brings great tablet functionality to my Note.

Also using Papyrus and Notes Mobile for great S-pen apps.

One of the reasons for getting my Note was cm9, that and decent screen and stylus.

I still believe it's related to people installing some crap on their phones that interferes with the flashing and/or them just doing something wrong. I have some chainfire-kernel with CWM installed on my Note with rooted stock ROM, installing it went without a hitch.

At the moment I'm doing a CWM backup, then I'll install CM9 RC and Google Apps ;)

CM was never a reason for me for getting the Note, the large screen and stylus on the other hand were. In hindsight I should have waited a bit longer and bought something with a dedicated hardware-button for camera, it really ticks me off to no end that there is only an on-screen button for that.
