While the lucky few have already enjoyed Google’s latest tasty treat for the past five months, most device owners have been waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich a long time. Now, thanks to Senior Member arco68, Galaxy S Plus users can now enjoy ICS courtesy of an alpha stage, but rapidly progressing CyanogenMod 9 port.
Currently on alpha build 2, the ROM is still an early build. However, with hardware accelerated UI and video playback working, it doesn’t seem like an early build. In fact, the most essential functions such as phone, GPS, WiFi, and almost everything else work properly. The currently broken list is quite small for an alpha build and include:
- FM Radio
- USB Tethering
- Small Bugs
This ROM, even with its minor issues, is still Ice Cream Sandwich. And for many, the price to pay to make your device feel new again is quite small.
