Android Version:: 4.0.4 (ICS)

Source::
DRAGONZKILLER PROUDLY PRESENTS:
CyanogenMod 9.0.0-RC0-DROIDX2-ALPHA3
Keep in mind this is EXTREMELY ALPHA

PICS WILL BE ADDED LATER WHEN I'M NOT LAZY

Features:
For a list of features added to ICS please go to the Android website: http://www.android.c...cream-sandwich/
As this is still relatively new to CyanogenMod, very few features have been added on top of this and I won't create a features list until CM9 is "CM9" and not a hacked up ROM.
Also, as this is still super alpha, some of the features listed are not fully functional on the X2 yet.

Working:
  • WIFI
  • Bluetooth
  • Data/3G (see known issues)
  • *Maybe* tethering, but I doubt it (turns on, but haven't tested)
  • HQ and LQ Youtube (used to be a problem)
  • And a lot of little things

Known Issues:
Besides a whole lot more of a lot of little things:
  • ***NEW*** Google Play installs larger apps to the SD card on installation. After a reboot these no longer appear in the apps drawer. A workaround is to install the app, go to "Settings > Apps" and click on the app. Once there click "Move to phone" and you're app should remain persistent across reboots.
  • Camera doesn't work: there is a fix for this for Tegra devices, but it's not working for us yet
  • MMS rarely works: this probably has to do with how data works with the phone and how i had to "hack" the data to get it to work.
  • Graphics memory sometimes runs out: as we are on less RAM the memory management is a bit whack. Sometimes while rotating an app (noticeably the browser) it will "twitch" and crash. Also systemserver (the main background service) will crash and Android will restart (rarely).
  • Data usage doesn't work: this requires kernel mods which I haven't worked out yet (but started on as I have one of them in the build)
  • Chrome beta doesn't work: it also requires kernel mods which I haven't messed with yet.

Installation:
This can be installed over CM7 or BLUR but you MUST wipe data and cache. Also do NOT (I repeat) do NOT use TiBu to backup data from CM7/BLUR. I don't want to hear about how that doesn't work.

  • READ THE ENTIRE POST
  • Download the links provided below
  • Install the BSR (patched if on CM7)
  • Reboot into the BSR
  • NANDROID <--- you'll probably want to go back to this
  • Install the CM9 zip from the SD Card
  • Install the GAPPS from the SD Card
  • Wipe both DATA and CACHE (no need to wipe Dalvik if you wipe both of these)
  • Reboot your phone
  • Enjoy CM9

Downloads:
REQUIRED Google Apps (GAPPS): http://goo-inside.me/google-apps. Download the latest version of them for here and check the MD5 sums from there also.
