CyanogenMod 9.0.0-RC0-DROIDX2-ALPHA3
Keep in mind this is EXTREMELY ALPHA


For a list of features added to ICS please go to the Android website:
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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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

REQUIRED Google Apps (GAPPS): Download the latest version of them for here and check the MD5 sums from there also.
