enables the user interface from the tablet flavor of Ice Cream Sandwich, but now it's come to something a little more useful. A user from RootGalaxyNote.com posted a video of Samsung's super-sized smartphone running in tablet mode. Obviously the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note has a lot more reason to run a tablet modification than its smaller brothers. You can download the "imilka" custom tablet ROM here.

Android Open Kang Project, more colloquially known as AOKP. The much-anticipated Build 30 of the custom Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is available for download now, complete with custom app shortcuts in the navigation bar for Galaxy Nexus users. There are also stable builds for the Samsung Nexus S, Nexus S 4G, Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9, the HTC Sensation, EVO 4G, Incredible and Incredible 2, the Motorola XOOM, the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101, the Acer IConia Tab A500, and the HP TouchPad. AOKP is also, without a doubt, the best pink unicorn-themed ROM available.
Nook Color and Nook Tablet get the most attention out of Barnes & Noble's e-reader line, at least from an Android modder standpoint, but many forget that all of the Nook devices run Android - and all have been thoroughly modded. Even the humble Nook Touch has been thoroughly rooted with custom apps and ROMs, though the e-ink reader's hardware limitation prevents some of the more basic Android tasks from being completed. One of those can be disregarded now: XDA members wheiltijohnny and Mani100 have devised some custom code that enables multi-touch gestures for the diminutive e-ink reader.
AOKP. Team Kang's custom builds of open source Android 4.0 have become some of the most popular on the Galaxy Nexus and a growing number of other devices.

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.

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.
ClockworkMod Touch. Today that small number of (official) devices extended by two. The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime and the original Transformer are both officially supported as of now - you can download and install ClockworkMod Touch via the ROM Manager app.
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.
CyanogenMod is MIUI, and today we have good news regarding their development of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and the Galaxy Nexus. MIUI has been available for multiple devices for a long time and we've seen a few hacked or ported ROM's for the Galaxy Nexus but now the official MIUI ICS for "toro" the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is available in all its glory.
NITDroid forums dedicated to bringing Android to Nokia hardware have shown off their latest and certainly greatest project: fully functional Android 4.0 on the MeeGo-powered Nokia N9.
