Although CyanogenMod 9 is under heavy development, the developer team is kind enough to offer Android fans a glimpse of their work. This time we have a new early build of the CyanogenMod 9 for the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Courtesy to XDA Developers user Maui, the “experimental build” is now available for download and flash for all Galaxy Note owners. However, it is important to understand that these early builds are highly experimental and unsupported.
Based on the latest AOSP sources
as well as several tweaks and new features, the CyanogenMod 9 for Samsung Galaxy Note is still under development, so expect a certain number of bugs and issues with the phone’s features after the ROM is flashed.
According to Maui, the following features are more or less functional:
- WiFi should work as expected;
- 3G/GPRS/EDGE Data and Calling;
- Touchscreen as well as the S-Pen (proprietary S-Pen Apps by Samsung are not included and it wouldn't work anyway;
- Sensors should work. (ie. at least GPS is confirmed to work properly).
Furthermore, there are several known bugs that may or may not be fixed in future releases, including the Bluetooth connection, which is unreliable for the moment, as well as the Battery Usage that does not work.
It is also worth mentioning that for the time being, the camera is not functional and will continue to be that way until an official Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the Samsung Galaxy Note leaks in the wild.
In addition, the person responsible for the release of the CyangoenMod 9 for the Galaxy Note confirms that MTP Mode does not work, so users will have to push/pull files via adb.
