Official CM9 Alpha for Galaxy Note N7000
In this day and age of modern computing, one of the most popular devices out there, particularly due to the novelty of its size, is the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000. Many devs are focusing their attention on this “giant” as it is a powerful platform to develop on. Because of this and features such as the S-Pen, devs have been doing lots of work on this and it seems that thanks to the efforts XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD, team hacksung, and the good folks over at cyanogenmod, N7000 users can now flash the infamous AOSP CM9 rom on the quasi-tab.
As is the case with most ports, particularly those in alpha or beta stages, there are a few quirks to be worked out by the devs. However, even for an alpha state release, the device has a lot of features working right off the bat such as wifi, data, and more. The things that are not working are not exactly critical for a daily driver, but can affect some of the “cool” factor functionality such as FM radio not working, no MHL, or DSP manager, just to mention a few.
In any case, the dev has created two separate threads so as to not mix up discussions about the rom and actual development and feedback. The links for both threads can be located at the bottom of this article. Moreover, the dev states that if you are going to submit a bug, please either report it (instructions on how to do this are in the development thread’s OP), or provide logs accompanying your claim. That being said, please provide feedback if you have any (but in the correct thread).
You can either help us by giving FULL bug reports WITH LOGS, WITH REPRO CASE, ETC, or by submitting patches.
