Back in November of last year the CyanogenMod team announced that they were working on CyanogenMod 9, which is based on the latest version of Google’s mobile OS, android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The CyanogenMod team have now posted an update on the progress of CyanogenMod 9, and have said that support for other devices on top of the existing devices is coming soon.
Currently, you can compile CM9 for a small number of devices- notably the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Wi-Fi and T-Mobile versions), the HP Touchpad and Motorola Xoom. The next devices to show up will likely be a whole array of Samsung phones (Exynos chipset), with devices based on the Qualcomm MSM8660 and 7×30 chipsets to follow. It’s still unclear if we can provide support for the QSD8x50 family of devices (Nexus One, HTC Evo, etc), but the answer almost always turns out to be “yes” for these kinds of things.
You can find out more information about CyanogenMod 9 over at the CyaogenMod blog.
