Experimental CyanogenMod 9 brings Android 4.0 to Galaxy Note
The Samsung Galaxy Note has now received an experimental CyanogenMod 9 ROM that brings Android 4.0 to the half-phone, half-tablet. Team Hacksung has detailed the process and provided all the necessary files over on the XDA Developers forums, but cautions that only experienced developers apply the software to their 5.3-inch smartphones. There is also a list of known issues available online.
Said issues include the FM radio not working, the GPS status not locking in, and media unable to play black. The DSP Manager isn't working either, nor is the USB OTG and MHL, and there are a number of other problems as well.
The issues will be eventually ironed out, with nightly builds that address them due to commence after this experimental build. Once complete, adventurous Galaxy Note owners will have another option to get Android 4.0 on their devices without waiting for an official update that will have Samsung's TouchWiz interface laid atop Google's OS.
