It’s been a pretty long wait, but the popular Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi has its first official (though unsupported) builds of CyanogenMOD9. Though folks have been building the custom Android 4.0.3 ROM from source for months, this version is finally endorsed by Cyanogen himself, Steve Kondik, as posted on his Google+ wall.

Apparently there are a few bugs still to sort out, and the camera doesn’t work, but if you’re one of the many frustrated users seeing their friends’ Transformer Primes with Ice Cream Sandwich, this is going to be very exciting. If the news is any indication, CyanogenMOD 9 is ramping up to support a lot more devices besides the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, though we’re not going to hold out hope for a final release until all the bugs are worked out.

If you’re brave (or foolish) download CM9 for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (GT-P7510), remember to back up your current ROM before flashing this in Clockwork Recovery. Note that this is ONLY compatible with the WiFi version and not the 3G version.

    Whenever I read “Cynogenmod 9″ and “Samsung Galaxy” together in a sentence I get over-excited and my mind reads “Galaxy S2″, and assumes its a post about how a stable ROM is now or soon to be available for download… lol, i’m too excited for it.

    Arg there never seems to be a version compatible with the Rogers version

    • KMAN

      There are several KANG builds available if you check out the android development forums on xda-developers.

      I’ve been running ICS on my 10.1 tab (wifi) for a few months now. They are stable for the most part but camera doesn’t work (which i don’t care about) and i do get the odd crash in 3d games. Overall its pretty awesome though.

      The whole CM9 process is getting slowed by legal issues with Nvidia from what I’ve read.

    A friend bought the 10.1 Wi-Fi assuming that – since it has no cellular – it is beyond the grip of the Canadian carriers and would be upgraded on the same schedule as all other Wi-Fi versions world-wide.

    Wrong.

    So, Cyanogenmod is particularly important for Canadians since we get the blunt end of firmware updates for a lot of these devices.

    KANG’s version of ICS is quite stable and just no camera. VERY happy for daily use with that right now.

    I need camera because I use Skype frequently.. so I can’t try any KANG build out there.. :(
