CyanogenMod9 arrives on Samsung Galaxy Note, sales surge to 2 million in Korea alone
The Samsung Galaxy Note is probably a success story not everyone expected to see become real, but it has. The 5.3-inch gigantic Galaxy Note impresses with its size and now sales, which have reached 2 million units in Korea alone. This gives Samsung a commanding 64% share of the Korean market, leaving competitors way behind.

And now CyanogenMod9, one of the most popular ROMs for Android, brings Ice Cream Sandwich to the handset. It’s all yours for the taking at the source link below, but you should be ready to deal with a few issues like the non-functional FM Radio. There’s a pretty thorough walkthrough at the source link below so you shouldn’t encounted much difficulties if you have some experience in flashing ROMs.

Still, there are issues and it’s an early experimental build of the ROM, so if you mostly care about stability, you’d be better off waiting a little bit more for a more polished version of the software.

why do they rush to tell us about a half baked rom that is still unstable? don't report anything about a rom until it is fully stable. also, why don't you try and pre read your article and correct grammer errors before submitting them. just a thought.

As they so, they start from AOSP and do many many things before giving us these beautiful and fast as light ROMs

Exactly, they build awesome roms, they have the talent and know-how, so why not take it one step further

Cause is better to start from a free open source and then do a little job (compared to what is to build from zero their own code) so by doing only optimizations and bug hunting

Maybe they are going to give their own OS a serious try. Maybe thats why samsung hired him... to perfect their Tiezen OS.

cm9 is great news. It'll take a big leap forward in development once official ICS hits soon.

So no support for the SGH-I717 North American Galaxy Note LTE?

No. Different roms are needed for the SGH-1717
