Stable release of CyanogenMod 9 on its way tonight

While the world is currently awaiting CyanogenMod 10 and all its Jelly Bean goodness, the team has announced that it will be rolling out the stable build of CyanogenMod 9. Not only will this bring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to many supported devices, but it will now allow the CM team to focus on Jelly Bean as its main priority.

Although it might not be the latest release of the Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich is by far the most dramatic overhaul of Google’s OS to exist.  Now that a stable version is on its way, CM9 will now only receive critical bug fixes. This also signals the end of CM9 Nightlies to make way for a different flavor of the OS.

“Builds for CyanogenMod 9 stable will be rolling out to our servers tonight. As noted before, this will be the end of the line for the ICS branch of our code; only critical bug fixes will be merged moving forward.”

With its main focus on CyanogenMod 10, we can only hope that those who will soon be running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be able to get some Jelly Bean action soon.

Be on the look out for the stable release to drop later tonight!

Who is ready to get their flash on?
