Oh, and then, CyanogenMod 9 is up next. It will be based on Ice Cream Sandwich. Does that get you excited enough now?

Right, I knew it would. Monday just got better.

I’ll probably flash it today. And have a layman’s guide to flash up, as well, if time permits. Meanwhile, you can download this release from here.
