While the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update has yet to officially make its way to the Samsung Epic 4G Touch (or also known as the Galaxy S2) on Sprint, it seems that for those impatient, an experimental build of the CyanogenMod 9 Android 4.0 ROM is currently available for the Epic 4G Touch, although given its experimental nature and early stages of development, it does not seem like a good idea to use it as a daily driver. But if you’re curious and wouldn’t mind giving it a spin on your Epic 4G Touch, the download and instructions can be found on the XDA forums and RootzWiki.
Based on what’s been revealed by the developers, there are quite a number of serious bugs with the build that could cause a bad user experience. For starters it appears the both WiFi and Bluetooth cannot be turned on, the camera does not work, no MMS functionality, signal bars are not accurate and the screen reportedly flickers when rotating between landscape/portrait modes. Like we said – it’s experimental but we guess that the developers have to start from somewhere, right?
