CyanogenMod 9 on Galaxy Note is Fast and Clean (Video)


The Galaxy Note is a great phone, but it’s hampered a bit by Samsung’s TouchWiz interface which seems to touch each and every aspect of the user experience. What if you want stock Ice Cream Sandwich, the way nature (and Google) intended? Fear not. If you’re brave enough to root your phone, there’s an extremely stable and fast CM9 alpha ROM (based on Android 4.0.4 to be exact) now available for the Galaxy Note. After several days of use, we didn’t come across any bugs whatsoever. Using the Galaxy Note with ICS is refreshing, as you can see in the video here.

CyanogenMod 9 Alpha for Galaxy Note is only available for the international version of the smartphone at this time, though if you’ve got an AT&T Note, there are still a ton of terrific stock Android Ice Cream Sandwhich ROMs to choose from over at XDA. Check out some of the links below, which should guide you to the right place.
