Samsung Galaxy Note rocking Android 4.0 with CM9

Probably one of the most impressive devices as of late is the Samsung Galaxy Note. While it's still currently not available in the US or many other parts of the world it still has seen wide adoption with over 1 million sales, and the development community is flourishing. Below we have some Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the 5.3" phone -- tablet -- cutting board.

NOOK Color gets an Ice Cream Sandwich CM9 ROM

As to be expected we are seeing loads and loads of CM9 or Ice Cream Sandwich ROM's for all types of Android devices. The popular NOOK Color that was highly hackable and enjoyed Honeycomb before many others is taking the same route with Ice Cream Sandwich. Thanks to a few hard working developers over at XDA the NOOK Color is starting to see new life and 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is coming along quite nicely.

Android Open Kang Project hits Milestone 1 for Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus

There are a few ROMs and kernels out there for Verizon's Galaxy Nexus already, but the one that clearly stood apart from the rest was AOKP by Roman of RootzWiki. Thus far, his build has been the most stable and speedy while still having all the bells and whistles. Through a ROM Control quicklink within the settings, rooted users can customize their phone with ease and reliability; no need to boot into recovery. And most importantly, this ROM has just reached its first "Milestone". A milestone release aims at fixing all the current bugs, and offers an option for users that don't feel like flashing another .ZIP through ClockworkMod every other day.

TouchPad Android port continues: H/W acceleration, more [Video]

Work on the HP TouchPad Android port continues, with the Cyanogenmod team releasing a new video demonstrating its latest milestone. Both of the TouchPad's 1.5GHz cores can now be used, all of the sound issues have been addressed, and there's some impressive 3D gaming to be had, too. Hardware accelerated video is also now functional, which means smooth playback of 720p HD video locally stored on the tablet itself, as well as high-quality YouTube playback. Obviously there's WiFi support, along with the accelerometer, audio system and more. The intention is still to provide a dual-boot system, capable of loading either Android or the original webOS of the TouchPad. Unfortunately there's no public ROM for owners to try out themselves; that'll be ready when it's ready, the Cyanogenmod team insists. [youtube ApfeSj4Ql6Q]
