After months of testing, the CyanogenMod team is finally convinced that it is ready. Today, the team is announcing that CyanogenMod 9 has officially reached release candidate status and that it’s ready to download. Among the devices that can enjoy this treat are the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Asus Transformer Prime, and the HTC Sensation. You can check out the full list of devices via Get.CM. The team proudly said via its CyanogenMod blog, that after Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich arrived 225 days ago, over 37 devices will be receiving their RC1 build of CyanogenMod 9 today.
As of this writing, the number of devices that can download CM9 appears to have grown to fifty and beyond. “As we’ve mentioned before, this release serves as the first wave of RC1′s. With the ‘core’ OS stabilized, our device maintainers will continue to work on their device trees to bring up more devices, this includes some of the newer releases as well as some from the older generations; but we’ll save that for another day,” the team said. So, if you love rooting and flashing your Android device with a custom ROM, CyanogenMod is one of the most popular ROMs out there. You can learn more about it here.
