CyanogenMod is a pretty big deal in the Android modding world, and there's a good reason for that: it's fast, lean, well-featured, and supports a ton of devices that manufacturers have abandoned. When Android 4.0 was released, the CM team made it clear that CM9 (based on ICS) would be a long time in the making, as they were going to focus on doing everything properly and cleaning up the code. And now, as promised yesterday, CM9 stable is rolling out en masse.

So far, the supported devices:

  • LG Nitro HD/Optimus LTE
  • Samsung Galaxy Tabs
  • Samsung Galaxy Note (Intl)
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus (GSM/CDMA)
  • Sony Ericson Xperia Mini Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy S II (Intl/AT&T/GSM)
  • Sony Ericson Xperia Neo
  • Samsung Galaxy S
  • Samsung Epic 4G
  • LG Optimus Sol
  • Samsung Nexus S (+/- 4G)
  • Sony Ericson Xperia Arc
  • Sony Ericson Live With Walkman

Clearly the list so far is dominated by Samsung and Sony Ericson, but builds are still going up every 20 minutes or so - the build bot is just churnin' them out.

As mentioned in the CM9 announcement post, the team will be moving on to CM10 (a process they promise will be much quicker). The only development that will be done for CM9 will be critical bug fixes.

    I am surprised that the Galaxy S II didn't make the list, I guess the CM team are just doing the finishing touches to make sure everything works.

      The AT&T S2 and other variants of the S2 go by their model number. So the AT&T S2 is under i777

    Motorola when?

      Nevaaaahhhhh, lol. Why release a stable rom when most phones don't even have an unlocked bootloader.

      • duplissi

        jokersax from xda has done a lot of work for the photon 4g/electrify. they should get stable releases soon, considering he has had cm9 running on them for nearly 5 months now. they do have an unlockable bootloader though (not supposed to be ;) )

        • Lamar Wiggins

          Not the newest software version of the Photon,2.3.5, the latest update this summer locked the bootloader. Can't even RSDlite back to 2.3.4

      There aren't even any HTC phones on that list.

  • Shaggyskunk

    It looked like it was moving alphabetically, but it skipped the skyrocket :-[

    • fixxmyhead

      patience, u will get it

      • jpfrasier

        I hope your right, I have CM9 RC2 and got excited when the skyrocket was listed in production, build 5833 i think, then all of a sudden Hercules was available and Skyrocket skipped. I read somewhere the server timed out and they were working on it, I sure hope so.

  • Arturo Carter

    I'm not surprised the skyrocket was left off. Its a great phone, but not a huge seller. Hopefully the devs over at XDA will be jumping on the CM code and port it to the the Rocket

    • fixxmyhead

      dude just wait u will get it. its officially supported by the cm team. i got it on my hercules and there almost the exact phone so why shouldnt u get it

    • jpfrasier

      If the Skyrocket doesn't get it for some odd reason I may move over to AOKP

    • jpfrasier

      CM9 stable for the skyrocket finally arrived:

      • fixxmyhead

        What did I tell u

  • http://www.facebook.com/andresdroid Andres Schmois

    The droid 1 was one of the first devices to get official cm. After that no Motorola phone got an official version of cm. I know bootloader is an issue, but there's people with unofficial versions that can prove it's not that bad to make one.

  • Ralph P

    Nothing for the touchpad :/

    • MAINEVENT23

      All hardware components must be fully functional to warrant a 'RC' label.

      • http://thedangerbrain.com/ Alfonso Surroca

        Ah, makes sense. So, I suppose TouchPad will never get an RC on account of the camera still not working? Doesn't much matter to me as I never used it, and because I'm always on the latest nightly anyway ;)

    LG Optimus Sol XD XD Thanks CM!!

  • Jays2Kings

    The fact that I see the Sprint's Gnex, but not Verizon's is both surprising and saddening.

    • chris

      CDMA is sprint and verizon

      • Jays2Kings

        No I mean it's there's a stable build for the Sprint variant (toroplus) but none for the Verizon one (toro).

    • Russeru

      It's up now:
      Looks like it's up now: http://download.cyanogenmod.com/?device=toro&type=stable
      Now the question is what will happen first: stable CM10, JB OTA, or hell freezes over.

  • Google_is_the_Higgs_Boson

    Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch?

    No EVO 4G, no fucks given.

    • http://the-jade-domain.com Jaime J. Denizard

      CM announced that support for first-gen Snapdragon phones was dropped.

  • Pedro88

    Do you think there is any chance to get Stable for Vibrant? There is no RC for it yet.

  • Nick

    No G2? This is lame..

    I remember when one of the main purposes of CM was to give phones that would be neglected of support/upgrades from their company a chance to upgrade anyways outside of that. Now it just seems that CM only wants to support phones that GET THE MOST ATTENTION FROM BOTH COMPANIES AND POPULARITY. Why help something that does not need help yet and now neglect ones that really do?!

    Now I am just worried, because if the One X+ does come out for T-Mo (because like hell I am buying the overpriced, underpowered SIII) and if rumors suggest it having a pure google experience, does this mean CM will pass this up too because its not on the Sammy bandwagon?

  • Josef Esparza

    My #1 criterion for buying a new phone is that is/will be supported by CM.
