The CyanogenMod team has certainly been busy this week; a few days ago we saw the first CyanogenMod 9 nightly builds appear for the AT&T Galaxy S II and HP Touchpad, and now the original Samsung Galaxy S can join in the party, too.

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.

Nightlies are available for both the i9000 and the i9000B, which is the Brazilian variant of the device, from the CyanogenMod downloads site.

Update: Captivate and Vibrant too!

Thanks, Rukku and Ryan!

    Grrr... I want CM9 for TMO SGS2... I shall be patient though

    I would jizz my pants if I saw SHOOTER on that list...

    • Simon Belmont

      I see what you did there. I also agree.

      We will probably have to wait until the HTC Sense 3.6 with ICS update arrives for drivers and the kernel. Hopefully soon.

    It also seems like the get.cm site had an upgrade :)

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Yup, they gave it a facelift yesterday.

    Not for nothing, but a nightly just appeared for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi (p4wifi). I'm not sure if it'll be a regular nightly, but it's a lot better than just having a single month-old snapshot.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Actually, it looks like another snapshot. update-cm-9-20120330-SNAPSHOT-p4wifi-signed.zip

      • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com Cody Toombs

        Yeah, I was curious at about the labeling of the filename too. If it's really another snapshot then at least it must be pretty stable and usable (why do a 'special' release at all if you aren't happy with the results), but it's also a bit uninspiring because it hints that we're probably not looking at the same level of development attention (which seems to be true for all of the tablets still).

    Non related question - How do you guys enable avatars in comments ? No option in here :/

    • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com Cody Toombs

      Set up an account on gravatar.com with a picture. Then make sure you type in the email address on comment posts...everything else is automatic.

      • http://www.comichippo.com Savita Bhabhi

        Thank You :) . Do I have to be logged in while commenting ?

        • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com Cody Toombs

          You never have to touch (log into) gravatar again unless you want to change the picture or disable the account...and there isn't any kind of logging into AP (at least for us regular commentors)...you just have to make sure the correct email address is in the field to the side whenever you submit a comment (and with cookies enabled, those values will always be filled in automatically). Like I said, won't it's set up, it's all automatic. Couldn't be easier. :)

        • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com Cody Toombs

          won't = once

          not sure how I typo'ed that...

        • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

          Yeah, what Cody said, at least until we implement DISQUS.

  • John Jefferson

    All i have to say is wow, probably the least buggy nightly I've used (beside nightly 181 on cm7)
    Its based on Android 4.0.4, it doesn't get much fresher than this.

  • Vanteks1

    Wtf, how did the original galaxy get a nightly build before the t-mo sgsII. Sigh.... I digress.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Probably because it's far less complex and has more developer support.

  • Vinnie

    I'm running the latest cm9 nightly on my Samsung Captivate. Very nice.

    • eminembdg

      Do I need gingerbread bootloader on my vibrant for CM9 or am I good to go ahead and flash over my CM7? Anyone?

      • Darrell

        Avoid the gb boot loader. Your install will hang and you'll have to odin to stock.

    • telson

      I am running the Team Hacksung's cm9 port. Any major changes to using the official CM9 nightly?

  • Rob

    Will my EVO 4G ever get any CM9 love?

    Probably not. :(

    I guess my first real shot at CM9 will be when I get a new phone, root it and install CM9 myself.

    Countdown to Summer 2012.

    Shall it be a Galaxy Nexus or the HTC One X (Sprint)?

    • Michał Ostrowski

      Rob, try looking on XDA and RootzWiki for some ICS builds (they may be labeled Supersonic - it's the EVO 4G's codename). ICS for msm7k is pretty mature already, so your experience will most likely be enjoyable :)

      • Rob

        Thank you, Michał. I will definitely check those resources out. :)

  • pwave

    Hello did anyone try it on the i9000 does everything work ?

    • karim

      The latest nightly build for i9000 works very smoothly. camera/video works fine,phone calls,sms,email sync works fine.For normal daily use,this rom is excellent.
      i must say i haven't found any hiccups with this rom.

  • Tanmay Sawant

    Yes they are out.Happy that Old powerhouses like Galaxy S i9000 has got CM support .
