CyanogenMod 9 Stable coming tonight, then all work to be on CM10
There was quite a bit of excitement for CyanogenMod 9 at one point, because anyone with a relatively new device thought that they were about to get some Ice Cream Sandwich... and then, Jelly Bean was released. We had already seen CyanogenMod skip over CM8, which would have been based on Honeycomb, and then we found out that CM9 would get one stable release and then nothing more. 

Well CyanogenMod 9 stable is going to be released tonight, according to the latest CM blog post, and that will be all we get, because the team is going to shift focus to bringing CyanogenMod 10 (Jelly Bean) to the community. The stable CM9 release for the GSM Galaxy Nexus is already available, but the team is planning all of the other stable ROMs, which will cover devices like the LG Nitro HD, Samsung Galaxy S III (international), Galaxy Note, most Galaxy S II models, the Sony Xperia handsets, Asus Transformer tablets, and more. 

After this, CM9 will only get critical bug fixes, and CM10 will get all of the love. Still, it's some great work by the team.

As a CM9 user on a few devices...


Attempting to submit bug reports with logcat logs to device maintainers is a JOKE, so much of a joke in-fact that for TWO of the devices I own, the device maintainers have abandoned CM9 completely (and actively rejected bug reports anyway) and jumped to CM10... WHICH I AM OK WITH (the jumping to CM10 part)...

Just pointing out the fact that CM9 can pretty much disappear and only a few would complain and STABLE is the wrong word to use for CM9 in its current form...

Your right about everything especially about who cares with jelybean being a refined ice cream sandwich. My nexus did seam stable before this so called stable release. Check my galaxy nexus has a stable 4.1.1 just not cm10

Are you trying to give a joke ?

My Hptouchpad run CM9 nightlies (not RC because it doesn't have Camera yet) like a sport car. I use it daily with all of the things working fluidly. Only without camera yet, and the camera is only the issue of Hptouchpad not Cm9.

Last words, CM have their own criteria when the build considered stable with many archivement to get their, so when they label it stable, you should believe, or they will lose all of their hard-earned reputation :D

Well, then we can expect a stable CM10 when the next version of Android is released...

After a few days of testing, I still prefer AOKP M6 over CM9 build 5931 (latest stable releases). Can't wait for both to release JB to see what changes they bring!

I used a AOKP for about a week, really dug it, but the CM9 build I was on just seemed smoother and a little quicker.
