The CyanogenMod team has done it again, bringing their CM9 build for AT&T's variant of the Samsung Galaxy SII to nightly status, and releasing the build to the CyanogenMod mirror network just yesterday.

The build actually released just before news that a seemingly official (and fully TouchWiz-ed) build of ICS had leaked for AT&T's SII, so SII owners have a couple of great options to satisfy their Ice Cream Sandwich cravings. To grab the first (and latest) CM9 nightly for the i777, just follow the link below.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

    Uh... The ICS leak was for the I727 (Skyrocket), not the I777.

    • James

      There was another ICS leak for the i777 just today.

      Both the Skyrocket and the original SGSII on ATT received respective leaks. Look at the link in the post.

        Oh, and I forgot to start my sentence with "Uh..."

    • Nick D

      Both have leaked now from what I've read.

  • James

    Odd that it's under the device "i777" instead of galaxys2att. I'm never entirely sure how to navigate CM's mirror network...

      My guess is they wanted to avoid confusion between the Skyrocket version and the original, so they decided to split into i777 and (probably) i727 as of CM9.

      This was changed recently to avoid Skyrocket confusion.

      This nightly brought to you by 8-9 hours of reverse engineering Saturday in order to make the need for an I777 leak irrelevant. :)

        Hey Andrew,

        Are you part of CM or a fan?

        • Andrew Dodd

          I'm a minor contributor to CM (probably increasing in the future), I've been maintaining TW kernels for the I777 since launch. I worked with atinm on the microphone swap and home key GPIO patches (these were the two things missing for I777 in Samsung's kernel sources.)

          Figuring out the microphone swap took 8-9 hours of reverse engineering Gingerbread libaudio on Saturday... miso tired now.

    And of course (I can't imagine a day going by without whining about this), the T989 gets nada. Will it be weeks, months, or never for the T989?

  • Kevin

  • Remy

  • Jose

    I just flashed this Rom and for some reason it continously turns off my WiFi and I can't seem to find the Google Play app, can anyone offer any insight on this please?
