    Does CM have things like GPU acceleration for the browser interface and general UI? Like Samsung use with the SGSII. It easily has the smoothest UI overall of any Android phone i've used, so does CM have anything like this? Or does ICS now have full GPU acceleration for the UI? Because Gingerbread certainly didn't and it was up to the manufacturer to add it in. Reply

    Erm, the source code for Honeycomb was released with Ice Cream Sandwich, so it's not that the source code was never released it's that it was released exactly when it became moot to release the source code. Reply

    Right; it's complicated. When it was announced that the source was going into AOSP, they said that the Honeycomb source would go up too too, but they didn't put any Honeycomb-specific tags in so that people wouldn't try to target it.

    Anyway, when I say "the source wasn't released," what I MEAN is what you said. :-)

    Would be nice if they optimized 9 for the OG Droid.
    Still one of my favorite phones.

    Bugless Beast has been the best rom for me on the OG Droid.
    CM7 battery life is a big improvement over the stock kernal, but Bugless takes even further.

    I've seen Bugless Beast but never tried it (own a Droid Inc), is it good and stable? I am running Condemned's Stripped 2 Hell CM7 ROM, it is running very nicely and comes with most all the tweaks (and Kernel) I add to CM7 already in place plus a few I did not know about, but I am willing to give Bugless a try if it runs stable and fast.

    I've been running Cyanogenmod on my Samsung Galaxy S II for a while now and my GF on her LG Optimus 2x.

    And while Samsung is at least moderately good at providing updates, LG is probably the most horrible android phone maker ever to exist on this earth.

    But, with Cyanogenmod, both phones are identical in features and even speed almost! A new ROM *every night* with all the functionality (bluetooth tether, etc.) you can imagine.

    Clean, efficient (great battery times), rock stable and 2.3.7 instead of 2.2 on which the Optimus 2x is still stuck.

    Can't wait for ICS! :D

    Unfortunately two issues remain, at least for the SGS2 version:

    1. Low music playback volume
    2. Some video files not playing nice

    1. is supposedly easy to fix with a script, but I can't for the life of me figure out why it's not integrated into the ROM itself. 2. is more tricky as it requires the source code for the GPU for something.

    The 7.2 release I'm hoping will solidify the Alpha for the TouchPad, which is good but rough enough that WebOS is still better for everyday use.

    ICS on the TP should really make that thing the deal of the century. Go CM!

    Disagree somewhat. The lack of apps on the TP makes me want to use CM7. And while its "rough" for some for me it works almost perfectly. I only have to toggle the wifi on and off when I change wifi locations.

    Hopefully whey will wrap up what they have done since the A2.2 and start on ICS so I have a real tablet Os instead of a phones OS.

    Even without CM9 its still the deal of the century :-)

    i was a sad panda when i heard that my Nexus One wasn't going to be getting the stock 4.0 Os...then team Cyanogen comes and makes me happy in pants!

    I went from the stock 2.3.6 on my Nexus One to Cyanogen 7...what a vast improvement on speed and functionality...and best thing is that my keyboard doesn't crash anymore!
