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.

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
