Samsung’s Original Galaxy Tab Gets Unofficial Android 4.0 Port

Still a work in progress, but quite a few features are working

Samsung might have no plans to release an Android 4.0 update for the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab, but the developer community has an entirely different opinion about this matter.

For the last few months a few members of the XDA-Developers forums, frustrated by Samsung’s decision, have been working on porting CyanogenMod 9 to the 7-inch tablet.

So far, the team managed to make quite some decent progress with the build, as most of the tablet’s features, including WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, are all working.

Camera support however is still absent, and the developers don’t know when this functionality will arrive to the 7-inch Galaxy Tab.

If you’re curious, you can check out the port in the video above this post, which was shot by Netbook News and shows the tablet being put through its paces.
