CyanogenMod 9 RC2 now Available for a Multitude of Android Devices
While, all the focus as of late has been on the latest version of CyanogenMod, the Jelly Bean-based CM10, it is important not to forget that the team is still hard at work on finalizing its Ice Cream Sandwich-based project, CM9. A while back, Release Candidate 1 was released, bringing us one step closer to a stable release. Yesterday, the CM team knocked one more step off of the list (and more than likely the last step) by releasing RC2.
The team took to its official blog to spread the news. Here’s what they had to say:
Our build servers are currently cranking out the latest release of CM9!
This release serves to stabilize CM9 as a product that you’d let your mom use, as well as add support for the following devices:
* Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (all variants)
* Samsung Galaxy SII on AT&T – Skyrocket
* Samsung Galaxy SII on T-Mobile – Hercules
* Samsung Galaxy Note on AT&T
* Samsung Galaxy SIII – i9300 (International GSM model)
README – This GS3 release is ONLY for the international Exynos-based model! Attempting to flash this to one of the USA models will not work!
RC2 includes bugfixes and updated translations and continues our path to a final release of CyanogenMod 9, which should be just around the corner.
As always, if you enjoy our work, please consider dropping a couple of bucks our way using the link at the bottom of the page. While we are on a mission to open up all of these devices to the world, we need to buy them first!
You can get the latest release candidate for your device from Get.CM.
I know there’s a ton of you out there who are already looking towards the future and will probably pass up on this in hopes of gracing your device with Android 4.1 in the near future, but for those of you waiting for something a bit more stable and ready for public consumption, this is sure to bring a smile on your face. Hit up the official CyanogenMod download page from the quote above and let us know how you’re liking the AOSP ICS goodness.
