When Google released the source code for their Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 update, we knew that it wouldn’t take long for developers to get their hands on the source code and begin cooking up something tasty for the Android world, and team CyanogenMod wasted no time in doing so.
For those unfamiliar, team CyanogenMod puts out one of the most popular ROMs available for Android, and they work directly with the official source code, so we guess it’s good news that Google released the source code on Monday! No doubt Android fans and CyanogenMod fans out there will be happy, but don’t expect CyanogenMod 9 to be available any time soon.
According to a tweet by Steve “Cyanogen” Kondik himself, we should probably check back with the team in two months. By no means will the ROM be ready then, but for those looking forward to an early alpha/beta release, January 2012 is the month you will want to mark down on your calendars. The ROM is developed on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, so if you want to get your hands on the ROM first, you know which Android smartphone to get!
