HTC One S Gets A Very Early Snapshot Build Of CM9
By on April 26th, 2012

The HTC One S went on sale in some regions of the world earlier this month, and the custom ROM development scene for the device is still in its infancy. While there are quite a few custom ROMs out there, they are all based on the stock firmware the device ships with. However, I am sure most of the One S owners would be interested in knowing when a stock ICS ROM or CM9 will be available for the handset.

Thankfully, one developer – xkonni – has started working on bringing CM9 to the One S. Keeping in mind that HTC still has not released the kernel sources for the One S, the developer has managed to do a pretty good job of getting some basic hardware features to work. Heck! Getting Ice Cream Sandwich to boot on the One S without proper kernel sources is a feat in itself!

As stated, the ROM is still in a very early development with most of the important features like the radio, camera and the ‘phone’ capabilities of the One S not working under stock ICS. Hopefully, once HTC releases the kernel sources of the One S, the AOSP development scene of the phone should pick up some much needed pace.

Readers and interested developers should head over to this thread on XDA for more information.
