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.

Just wanted to drop a note for the people looking into CM9/10 and running older phones. I'm running a Samsung Captivate (you know, back when phones only had 1 core) and I'd upgraded it to CM9 through the whole alpha/nightly stage. Kept it upgraded, but it would lag a lot, and froze about once a week. Tried wiping it clean and starting over with stable, but that didn't help much. A few hours of use showed I had all the same problems.

Just installed CM10, and it's like night and day. My phone's fast, responsive, and can multitask significantly more than CM9. I was on the verge of buying a new phone... but this has breathed new life into this older device. I'm amazingly impressed.

Btw, I strongly recommend the "euroskank" builds. If you have a device he builds for, they tend to be more stable than the nightlies, with more features/fixes as well. (http://fitsnugly.euroskank.com/?rom=cm10)
