    The guys on the CyanogenMod Team really have their hands full with all the new code in Ice Cream Sandwich apparently. That is what they shared recently in a progress report on their CM9 build for Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich, and why it is taking a bit longer to get it out than past versions. They mostly had to start from scratch, but the payoff will be worth it. The "back to the drawing board" approach has allowed them to rethink each step in their process. One example they gave is that CMParts app will be eliminated because they can instead they expose custom features directly inside the main settings menus. This has allowed them to strike a better balance between customization and providing a really good out-of-the-box experience.

    They are aiming to make CM9 feel like a product that might have actually shipped on your phone, instead of just a sophisticated hack. Here's a quote from their progress report,

    Don't forget to check the CyanogenMod source link below for more details in the full progress report.

    I cannot wait for this to drop. I really hope they address some of the known issues.

    CM ROMs are always worth waiting for. I like the "ground up" approach they're taking with ICS. I'm in no rush as I know they're really working hard on the ROM and making it as best as they can the first time around.:hail:

    yeah I would love to see this as well, not holding my breath or anything though cause it seems that most devs have left the Bionic by the wayside...which sucks cause it really is a nice device that could be amazing if all the little bugs got worked out

    Loving it on my Xoom :) ... It's not official yet, but the updates we've been having are compiled from the upstream patches, and they're doing awesome work!
