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 Well for a few flashers, either they didn't get the joke or they're really out of date: 29 users of TDUD are still around and logging info with CyanogenMod's built-in reporting app.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.

over at XDA.
Nook Color has had CyanogenMod 9 (Ice Cream Sandwich) for months already, but it's taken until now for some industrious XDA developers to get it running on the Nook Tablet. Even so, it's still operating off of the stick Gingerbread 2.3 kernel, thanks to the aforementioned bootloader lock.
many a moon since I dusted off the old firesale HP TouchPad, but now that the CyanogenMod team has advanced its Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the tablet to Alpha 2, I figured it was time to give the mod-friendly slate another go. TouchPad owners can download the latest ROM from RootzWiki, and after you see my experiences here, you'll want to. The TouchPad has become a surprisingly stable and speedy platform for Android, due in no small part to the efforts of the CyanogenMod developers.
CyanogenMod ROM repository to download them now. For the uninitiated, "toro" is the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, "maguro" is the international HSPA+ model, "stringray" is Verizon's Motorola XOOM, "wingray" is the WiFi-only XOOM, "crespo" is the Nexus S GSM version and "crespo4G" is the CDMA Nexus S 4G.
