While everyone with an Android phone is waiting for Jelly Bean to arrive on their phone, either via a custom ROM or right from their OEM, the CM team has silently rolled out CM9 RC2, which is based on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, for all its supported devices.
The CM team had released the first release candidate of CM9 late last month, which supported more than 50 devices. With CM9 RC2, the team has managed to add suport for a bunch of more devices including all the variants of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, AT&T Galaxy S2/Skyrocket, T-Mobile Galaxy S2 (Hercules), AT&T Galaxy Note and the international Galaxy S III (I9300).
The RC2 build of CM9 does not contain any new features or major changes. It does, however, contain some bug-fixes and updated translations. CM9 RC2 paves the path to the final version of CM9 which is “just around the corner”. The CM9 RC2 builds for various devices can be downloaded from get.cm.
