Milestone XT720 Welcomes CM9

The ICS frenzy is beginning to find more and more devices each day. Many of these actually branch out from the ever popular AOSP ROMs, and more specifically, CyanogenMod 9. While there are no official CM9 releases for various devices, there are devs out there who will put out unofficial CM-derived kangs for devices that may not have made “the cut” for official inclusion by the CM team. The Motorola XT720 Milestone is one such device. With ICS ports hitting other devices left and right throughout the site,  XDA Forum Member mchlbenner decided to try and give the frozen treat to the owners of this device.

So far, the port is actually in a alpha/early beta stage as it has some basic functionality, but not enough to make it a daily driver. For instance, the device has functioning sensors, can make and receive calls as well as SMS, and it has a working GPS. The usual bugs are present such as the lack of a camera and tethering seems to be broken as well. The opening post actually has quite a few downloads, so make sure that you get the necessary packages are there are a few fixes for problems that are not yet rolled into the rom, but will eventually get there.

If you happen to try it, please leave some detailed feedback regarding performance and bugs, so that the dev can take a look and correct any and all mistakes on this port.

PLEASE READ ALLDIRECTIONS BEFORE FLASHING FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS OR IT WILL NOT WORK RIGHT. included .Sensors are working
