Unofficial CM10 Port for the Samsung Galaxy S Plus
Not too long ago, we brought you the wonderful news that the original Samsung Galaxy S variants got official CM10. Unfortunately, there were a few versions that were left out, including the Samsung Galaxy S Plus I9001.
The first push to get AOSP Jelly Bean of any kind began with this thread which is currently maintained by XDA Forum Member demon434. It helped give the community a place to troubleshoot issues and test preliminary builds. Now, XDA Senior Member Doomsday94 has released an unofficial preview build of CyanogenMod 10.
The build is a little shaky, hence why it is called a preview. There are a number of things working, to include:
Video (sometimes youtube crashes)
Receiving and making calls
USB mass storage
HW accelerated gui
HW accelerated video

For more information, check out the original thread.

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...
