CyanogenMod 9 Alpha Makes its Way to the Galaxy S Plus

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:

  • Camera
  • 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.

Want to keep up with the latest progress or give it a whirl yourself? Check out the original thread for updates and install instructions. What are you waiting for? Get ICS on your Galaxy S Plus now, and enjoy all the new features of the latest Android experience.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
