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 gave CM9 a try on my Xperia Mini Pro, and it is very not what I would call stable at this point. The phone gets extremely hot, Chrome crashes all the time, Google Play won't even download software... Not ready for everyday use, as far as I'm concerned.

I have to admit though. Even if it has to roast my hand to achieve this, ICS is pretty nice, with the smooth performance and the improved lock screen, at little RAM cost. Too bad the FreeXperia build itself is still not ready. Guess that I can only blame the horrible way ARM manage their architecture.

To be fair, that "horrible way ARM manage their architecture" is kinda part of of the reasons for its wide adoption...
