CM9, the latest, most anticipated release of CyanogenMod to date, has been released out of beta and into RC1 (Release Candidate1). The ROM is out now for 37 devices. According to the official CM website:
It wasn’t quick or easy, but we are extremely proud of this release and what it represents for us as a group. The jump from 2.3.7 to 4.0.4 in many ways was a fresh start for this project, and as much as the code changed, the structure and organization of CM as a whole changed as well. It meant a lot of hard work, and late nights, but also a ton of fun. We are in this for the challenge, and the reward is always the satisfaction received when we release it to the masses as a ‘stable’ product. This RC1 brings us a step forward toward that payoff.
As we’ve mentioned before, this release serves as the first wave of RC1′s. With the ‘core’ OS stabilized, our device maintainers will continue to work on their device trees to bring up more devices, this includes some of the newer releases as well as some from the older generations; but we’ll save that for another day.
If you want to know if your device is on the list for the RC1 release, be sure to hit up this link and search for your device, making sure the download says “RC1”. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
