Official CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies for the Galaxy S II I9100G

Official CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies for the Galaxy S II I9100G

The good news just keeps coming for the I9100G variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II. The OMAP4-based device just received an official dose of TouchWiz-laden Ice Cream Sandwich goodness a few short days ago in the form of the Android 4.0.3-based XXLPQ update. However, no matter how much you may tolerate or perhaps even enjoy a particular OEM skin, there are many out there who have one quest with new Android devices—loading an AOSP-derived ROM.

This is now possible on the I9100G, and it comes in the form of official CyanogenMod 9 nightlies for the device. The developer responsible for this achievement is none other than XDA Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx of Team Hacksung. As of now, the ROM appears to be highly functional, with only the following known issues:

The builds are already pretty stable and there shouldn’t be much problems while using it as daily driver.
All features except FM-Radio, Wifi-Direct and maybe TV-Out are working.
I’ve also added a touchkey backlight notification feature (Notification LED) and some other funny gadgets.

Aside from being highly functional, installation is also a breeze as long as you are running the ICS bootloader. If you’re not, or are unsure as to your bootloader version, the easiest way to make sure that you’re on the correct bootloader is to simply flash the aforementioned official ICS XXLPQ firmware release for the I9100G.

First time installing CyanogenMod 9 to your Galaxy S II, or coming from another ROM:
- READ FAQs: http://teamhacksung.org/wiki/index.p…sked_Questions
- Make sure you’re running ICS bootloaders! (if you’re unsure, flash a official ICS rom and proceed)
- Make sure you’re running a proper working ClockworkMod-Recovery
- Copy GApps and CM9 ZIPs to your internal SDCard
- Boot into Recovery
- Flash CM9 zip from internal SDCard
- Flash GApps zip from internal SDCard
- DO A DATA WIPE / FACTORY RESET (otherwise your device will be stuck at boot)
- Reboot
- Don’t restore Apps using Titanium Backup!Upgrading from earlier version of CyanogenMod 9:
- Copy CM9 ZIP to your internal SDCard
- Boot into Recovery
- Flash CM9 zip from internal SDCard
- Reboot

I9100G owners out there, we suggest grabbing a drink, heading over to the thread, reading up on the procedure, and flashing immediately. Those wishing to get a piece of the pie should head over to the ROM thread and visiting his development blog.
