Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 gets its own Android ICS port thanks to compiled CyanogenMod 9 code
If you love the movie Braveheart, and are in possession of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 slate, you might give the newest way to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich on it a try.

The code of the custom ROM is compiled from various pieces of the CyanogenMod 9 project, which is en route to grace numerous devices with ICS before they are officially hit with Google's newest mobile OS version. Therefore some of your Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 features won't work for now, like the rear camera, and the automatic screen rotation will have a hit-or-miss behavior. 

Yet we are positive many owners will be willing to take the Android ICS port for a spin, be it only for bragging rights, so if you are interested, hit the source link for the step-by-step tutorial.

I have the galaxy tab 10.1 and I've been checking xda almost every day to see when they will fix more of those bugs then I'll definitely put it on there. I just have to have to keep rooting. I have a nice honeycomb custom rom on there for now that works amazingly fast to tide me over. But after having Ice Cream Sandwich on the Galaxy Nexus, I am very eager to have it on my tablet as well.
