The wait has been a long one, but it's finally starting to come to a close. The CM team has officially released several RC-level builds of CyanogenMod 9 for many high-profile devices, including the Galaxy Nexus (GSM), several Galaxy S II variants, and the Nexus S and Nexus S 4G.

For the complete list, head to the source link below. As always, make absolutely sure that you're downloading the correct ROM for your device, and if you have any reservations, ask in a forum before flashing, and always make a backup first. Otherwise, happy flashing!

Update: The folks over at the CyanogenMod blog have just officially announced what we already knew was available, and the total number of devices with an available RC1 is 37, so head over to the downloads page to see if you're on the list.

    No RC for toro? 

    • CoreDuo08

      The build failed for a whole bunch of devices when they merged this patch: http://r.cyanogenmod.com/#/c/18230/

      There was fix merged earlier, so after the first batch of builds is done, I imagine they'll be rerunning all the ones that failed, including my TF101.

    Heh, just in time for Jelly Bean. Somehow ironic.

      No, not ironic, actually seems to sadly be the case for every CM9 release over the last 2  years.  And that is by no means meant to be
      anything against the great work that these devs do on their own time,
      but its getting to the point where the RC or final versions BARELY make
      it out before the next full iteration of Android is released by Google.
      Just saying, if it continues to head in this direction it will in
      essence become self defeating, like it or not.

      What toro is?

        toro is the codename for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. I have to say it's good to see the Galaxy Nexus on the list!

  • Jagat

    No RC for Galaxy S either?

    • Walkop

      Same question here! I have it from the AOSP guys ATM but still...

    • Nortstar17

      I imagine it will come soon.  Im still running an alpha version, as I just use it as a media player at home!

    Toro is there now

    I've been running the nightlies on my Sensation for three weeks now, they are pretty much bug free and definitely a stable daily driver for me.

    Does this RC come with the HW Video Codecs?

    So has anything else been added or fixed to the CM9 ROM?

    It's just that I find updating my CM9 nightlies to be a pretty tedious process and my current nightly is very stable (but not very feature rich, that comes later! :-P).

    Anyway good job CM team!
