Following the release of CyanogenMod 9 on the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S3, the CyanogenMod team is now releasing CyanogenMod 9 (CM9) to almost all Galaxy S3 variants in the U.S. Of course, this will exempt Verizon’s version which unfortunately has a locked bootloader – much to the dismay of a few Verizon users. Earlier this week, Verizon announced a Galaxy S3 Developer Edition that will have an unlocked bootloader, but for a steep full retail price of $600.
Now that CM9 is now available on the Galaxy S3 units from Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile, it’s important to note that the ROM isn’t that stable yet, considering the fact that it is the RC1 phase. So, if you’re going to get the custom ROM, expect a couple of glitches here and there. You can get CyanogenMod 9 on your device here.
