CyanogenMod 9 RC2 Adds New Device Support, Including Galaxy S III
Now that the Jelly Bean source is out, the CyanogenMod news as of late has focused on early stabs at CM10 for a handful of devices. Don’t let that make you forget about all the work still going into CM9, which is currently in its release candidate phase. RC1 landed a bit less than a month ago, and now the CyanogenMod team has its follow-up ready, with CM9 RC2 beginning distribution today.
Obviously, RC2 contains a bunch of fixes and stability improvements, just as we expect to see in releases at this stage, but it also adds support for several additional Androids. RC1 was released with support for 37 models, and now RC2 adds an additional smattering of Samsung devices.
With this release, CM9 RC2 adds support for the AT&T Galaxy Note and GS2, the T-Mobile GS2, the international GS3, and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet.
Beyond fixes and new devices, CM9 RC2 features updated translations for its multi-language support. As usual, there’s no ETA on just when we might hope a final release to be ready, but the team does say that it “should be just around the corner”.
