Samsung Galaxy Note Among the Latest to Get CyanogenMod9

The proverbial train that is CyanogenMod9 keeps on a rollin’ today as it hits another device. This time, it happens to be the Samsung Galaxy Note.

The giant phone gets its giant update to one of the most giant ROMs in the history of ROM making courtesy to XDA member Maui, who’s been kind enough to compile it for everyone toting the super sized phone.

As expected, it is an alpha build and there are some issues. They include:

Bluetooth is unstable. Don’t rely on it just yet
Battery Usage doesn’t work.
MTP Mode does not work. You need to push/pull files via adb
Camera doesn’t work. Will be that way until we can get our hands on a ICS leak for the Galaxy Note

Unlike most CM builds, it is noteworthy to notice that this particular build is flashed via Odin as opposed to ClockworkMod Recovery and if you want the Gapps, then you’ll need to push them via ADB. So if you’re uncomfortable with ADB and need your dose of Gapps, then it’s recommended to get instructions on how to flash Gapps before attempting to flash the ROM. Otherwise you could end up a very unhappy camper (with no Gapps *sadface*) Also, as with any experimental or unstable builds, there’s always the potential for permanent phone damage. Also, as Maui will tell you:

Flashing this rom WILL increase your binary counter and may/will void your warranty.

If that’s something that you happen to not be so worried about, then you can sate your CM9 cravings, grab instructions, download links and screenshots in the original thread.
