Xperia S now has CM9 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and ClockworkMod recovery courtesy of the clever devs over at XDA. If you're feeling adventurous and you know your way around a bootloader, give both of them a try.
showed you some images of what we were hearing was the new CyanogenMod mascot to replace the old Andy bugdroid. Apparently those designs were only a few of many and now we have the final verdict. The image below is one of two new images to represent CyanogenMod as a brand, and a mature OS. Meet Cid.
CyanogenMod 9 users: you'll be getting a new mascot in a nightly ROM soon, and no, it isn't a duck. After a lengthy submission and approval process, the team of developers chose Caio Avles' design for a new logo and mascot, and have tentatively christened the little guy below "rAndy". That may or may not be the final name. You can expect to see the little guy show up in new ROMs and on the CyanogenMod website in the next few weeks, as the final touches are put on the CyanogenMod 9 Ice Cream Sandwich.
NOOK Tablet is seeing another update today, although an unofficial one from the lovely developers and hackers of XDA Developers. Earlier in March we reported that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and CyanogenMod 9 had been ported to the NOOK Tablet, and today it's been updated with bug fixes and the latest version of Android.
CyanogenMod family's nightly ROM updates, you may remember their 2011 joke: changing the name of the ROM to "TehUberDuckDistro" for a single nightly release, and replacing the familiar skateboarding Android with... well, a creepy-looking duck. All in good fun, right? Well for a few flashers, either they didn't get the joke or they're really out of date: 29 users of TDUD are still around and logging info with CyanogenMod's built-in reporting app.
first leaked Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, the folks at the CyanogenMod team are hard at work incorporating the much-needed software into their modded Android 4.0 builds. AT&T Galaxy S II owners can download nightly builds of CyanogenMod 9 starting now, getting the latest and greatest in customized Android 4.0 straight from the source. Head over to the CyanogenMod Mirror Network to download the latest build; install by flashing in a custom recovery, as usual.
CyanogenMod has two active builds going at the moment. The older (shall we say "rich in dev cycles?") CyanogenMod 7 is still going strong, and has currently released version 7.2 of its Gingerbread-based code. The first release candidate is available in the usual GitHub locations for flashers and ROM developers, and should make its way to all officially supported devices within the next few weeks.
