Each and every day we inch closer to a final release of CM9. While we're all excited for CM9 to hit the stable channel, we all know what that really means: we're one step closer to CM10 nightlies and Jelly Bean goodness across the board. In fact, a few devices have already gotten an early taste of what CM10 will be like.

As excited as we all are for CM10, though, those who are currently running CM9 will be glad to know that RC2 was released late last night. As expected, this basically just brings stability improvements and bugfixes, but it also adds support for a handful of new devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (all variants)
  • Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket
  • Samsung Galaxy S II (T-Mobile)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note (AT&T)
  • Samsung Galaxy S III i9300 (International version only)

As noted above, RC2 for the Galaxy S III is for the version of the device with the Exynos processor only. If you try to flash this on a variant with a Snapdragon, you could potentially brick your device. And nothing good can come of that.

The grab the latest release for your device, head here.

    I guess CM does not care about other devices besides the Samsung ones anymore..

      If you weren't aware, the Samsung series phones are both popular, and
      better supported by Samsung themselves. They are 2nd to only Sony
      Ericsonn in developer friendliness.

      That said, if you want to contribute you are free to! It's open source!

    I'm new to CM, but finally upgraded to CM9 RC1 earlier this week and just finished reinstalling all my apps. If I install RC2 I will have to install all my apps again, just like a new OS on a desktop correct?

      Download titanium backup and backup all new apps and data (not system data), flash the new CM9 RC and gapps then download titanium backup from the market place and hit restore missing apps plus data (again not system data), then throw money at the developers of titanium backup for being awesome.

        Don't forget to consider donating to the CM developers as well!

          Haha thanks. I will be donating to the people who make this stuff. My stock ROM was horribly unresponsive with the latest update from ASUS so I'm happy to have an alternative.

    is mhl hdmi mirroring working on these roms yet?

    WTF is the deal with no official HTC One X support? The Tegra international version was out months before the S3...

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

      Apparently Cyanogen and his team do struggle from time to time with Tegra due to the lack of available drivers (similar to Linux in general and hence Linus giving the middle finger to NVIDIA).

      Also CDMA is also an annoyance as well, though we Brits don't use it.

    I looked the list on the BBQLog application and on my Galaxy S II the changes weren't astronomical, so I can't be bothered to flash it as the backup/restore and grab this. I may grab the RC3, but for the time being I am sticking to CM9 RC1.

    Look forward to CyanogenMod 10 though and that will be exciting!
