    Changelog
    CM9 RC1 Tue July 26th, 2012
    One cause of the keyboard backlight failing to turn on when desired has been fixed. It is possible other causes have not been fixed. Please report if you continue to run into issues with the keyboard backlight.
    Switch from binary libsensor to source-built libsensor from aries. Theoretically it should behave identical to the old libsensor. Please report any differences you notice with sensors.
    Rescaled signal levels to fit AOSP's signal bar thresholds. It should be roughly equivalent to the behavior in beta4. Please report if you experience any major problems with signal bar behavior.
    The new CM9 boot animation featuring the Cid mascot is now included. If you want the old boot animation, download the flashable .zip from the boot animation page.

    || || || || || || || || || ||

    FOLLOWING CHANGELOGS PERTAIN TO CM9_Beta 4:

    Changelog
    CM9 beta4 Wed June 6th, 2012
    epicmtd: Fixed photo taking after video recording.
    epicmtd Kernel: Add CIFS and FUSE.
    Phantom Voicemail fix now merged in CM9.
    Non-Sprint carrier users probably will want to enable Phone > Settings > Message Wait Indicator if they use non-visual voicemail.
    Changes in CM9 since beta3.
    Option to hide the IME switcher. *Settings > Language & input > Selector notification
    Lockscreen Calendar.
    Lockscreen Weather.
    Apollo music app, although reportedly it needs more work to look good on smaller screens like Epic.
    Lockscreen Shortcuts.
    Key repeating in recovery enabled for epicmtd.

    Changelog
    CM9 beta3 Friday, May 11th, 2012
    Theme Chooser
    The ability to customize look and feel of CM9 to user choice using predefined themes or community driven user inspired ideas. Preview the theme before applying to make sure its exactly what your looking for in a theme before applying to the phone.
    Lockscreen Shortcuts
    Allows you to choose lock screen shortcuts (1-5) anything from browser, Facebook, twitter and messaging, the choice is yours, with customizable icon's.
    Capacitive Buttons/Keyboard Backlight Disable Option
    One of the most exciting new features in CM9 beta3 for Epic 4G is the ability to disable the capacitive touchkey backlights. Unlike other phones with multiple brightness levels, the touchkey lights on Epic 4G have only on and off. Using the Epic in the dark would be often annoying as the touchkey lights are blindingly bright.
    Settings > Advanced > Disable Touchkey Lights turns off lights after a 750ms delay since you last touched it. We designed it this way on purpose so the user has enough time to recognize the location identity of the four buttons.
    Settings > Display > Automatic backlight > Edit other levels... allows you to further customize when touchkey lights and even the keyboard backlight will be enabled based upon the light sensor levels. 0 means off and 255 means on.
    Unique Bluetooth MAC Address Fix
    Previously Epic CM9 used a generic MAC address instead of a unique per-device MAC address. Since the bluetooth address has changed, all users must re-pair their bluetooth devices before they may be used again. This resolves several known issues with some newer bt devices.
    Gallery Photo GPS Fix
    All previous versions of CM9 for Epic 4G would an erroneous date of 1969 in the photo EXIF data if you have GPS enabled at the time of taking the photo. This would cause the Gallery app to become confused and display photos in the wrong order. All new photos taken by the Camera of CM9 for Epic 4G will no longer have this issue. bbelos and Cyc of Team Epic wrote this tool and instructions for fixing your older photos.
    Conservative Overclocking
    CyanogenMod aims for maximum stability, so we have decided to include only the most conservative overclocking and no undervolting in the standard CM9 kernel. Undervolting is known to work 99.99% of the time, but rare timings involving certain apps can cause the phone to spontaneously reboot. It is our belief that many reports of random reboots are the result of unsafe overclocking or undervolting. We will not ship the means for users to shoot themselves in the foot in the default operating system.
    We have added only the 1.2GHz step, disabled by default. You enable it in Settings > Performance > Processor > Maximum CPU frequency. Since voltages cannot be changed, no add-on tools like Voltage Control are necessary.
    While 1.2Ghz maximum seems to be stable for most users, we do not recommend using it if you care about maximizing stability.
    Smoother cpufreq scaling
    All previous kernels have had trouble where it would no longer use the 100MHz step if you have changed your cpufreq or governor settings. Major fixes were made to the kernel to allow cpufreq to scale more smoothly. As a result, the cpufreq governors now behave differently. The powersave governor has been removed as it causes extreme slowness, failures and consequential higher battery consumption.
    GPS Navigation and Google Maps Fix
    CM9 beta2 added emulation for RotationVectorSensor2. Unfortunately this exposed a race condition that can cause sensors to entirely deadlock, the cause of the rare reports of GPS Navigation failures we have been hearing lately. beta3 contains teamhacksung's fix to the magnetometer driver to prevent this failure.
    If your GPS was already broken in CM9 beta2, you may need to uninstall and reinstall Google Maps in order to fix it.
    Camera Timer
    The Camera app now has the ability to set a countdown timer before a photo is taken. While in the Camera, hit the Settings button, then the action bar (three dots), then tap the camera button. The on-screen camera button will turn red and you will see a red countdown in the top left. When it reaches zero it will take a photo.

    Changelog
    CM9 beta2 Monday April 9, 2012
    Wired Headset Microphone volume now louder in calls.
    Loud Speaker Volume now louder. Both phone calls and media (music, Netflix, etc.) should both be louder.
    Added emulation for RotationVectorSensor2.
    Android 4.0.4 brings a few fixes and improvements.
    Users report a smoother overall experience and better battery life than 4.0.3.
    Camera auto flash is now fixed with Android 4.0.4.
    One user reported sync with Exchange server failed in 4.0.3 but now works with 4.0.4.
    Camera pinch to zoom.
    Updated to 4.0.4 crespo blobs.
    Enabled tun in the kernel for VPN users.
    mdnie re-enabled.

    Changelog
    CM9 beta1 Sunday, March 18th, 2012
    Voicemail Notification option for those suffering from the "Phantom Voicemail" bug. Phone < menu button > Settings > Voicemail Notifications is disabled by default. Epic users on non-Sprint or overseas CDMA carriers may want to enable this option if they want voicemail notifications.
    CM9 boot animation version 2
    Device Encryption kernel support enabled.
    Currently Untested! Not compatible with CWM! Do not use!
    1.9MB memory freed by disabling the FIMC1 mmap and reducing mmap usage for the JPEG driver. It is unclear what if any negative effects this causes. crespo is also testing this currently.
    Disable Samsung's mdnie improves color quality.
    New CM9 Features
    Holding Volume Up/Down while screen is off will change the current playing music.
    Settings>Profiles
    Settings>Developer Options>Root Access allows you to choose your root access mode.
    Settings>Display>Rotation now has additional rotation options.

    Changelog
    CM9 BETA0 Wednesday, March 7th, 2012
    36MB memory has been freed! Upgraded the MFC driver to match crespo, then found the minimum amount of cache necessary to allow camera, camcorder and video playback to work. This allowed us to free 36MB memory from the kernel.
    Fixed the annoying disappearing sdcard ringtone issue. Thanks to everyone who contributed discussion and logs on the problem!
    Fixed visible artifacts during video playback. Youtube, Netflix and other videos should be less distorted now.
    Fixed 720p video playback skipping caused by the video artifacts fix.
    Fixed the signal bars to behave like stock ROM. No real change in signal, it just makes users feel better about the signal bars and Time Without Signal percentage.
    Dock audio kernel support. Requires the Galaxy Dock Sound Redirector app from Market.
    Fixed (one cause of) data reconnection failures that otherwise aren't remedied by toggling mobile data or airplane mode, but only by reboot.
    Quiet Hours settings allow you to customize the behavior of notifications during the night.
    XZ compression of kernel shrinks the ROM size by 1MB.
    Improvements to kernel build and debug support scripts. Not relevant to users, but helpful to Epic kernel developers.

    || || || || || || || || || ||

    FOLLOWING CHANGELOGS --in reverse chronological order-- PERTAIN TO CM9_ALPHA RELEASES 0 thru 5:

    Release Notes | January 30, 2012:
    WARNING: You must reinstall gapps after every time you update CM9. If you forget and boot without gapps reflashed, CM9 forgets your Google account. =(
    Hold VolDown+Power and it will take a screenshot.
    If your MMS doesn't work, you probably restored a bad backup with cached settings in telephony.db in data/data/com.*.*.telephony that need to be purged.
    What Works
    Phone calls
    SMS send and receive
    MMS send and receive (unreliable for some people?)
    Hardware 3D acceleration
    3G data
    4G wimax
    Wifi
    USB mass storage
    Camera and video recording (with problems)
    Google Apps gapps-ics-20111230.zip confirmed to work.

    UPDATE: January 31, 2012
    Changelog
    CM9 alpha-1 Tuesday, January 31st, 2012
    Location services - it was causing the CPU to spin for a long time wasting power. - Uberpinguin
    Soft Keyboard dismiss when slider is open - mkasick/wtogami
    CWM scrolling - wtogami/koush

    UPDATE:
    Changelog
    CM9 alpha-2 Tuesday, February 7th, 2012
    With alpha-2 and all future versions of CM9, you will no longer need to update gapps after every upgrade. It is highly recommended that you upgrade to the new gapps-ics-20120201. This new gapps-ics has the face unlock split into a separate .zip because it is rather large and not very useful with our low resolution front camera.
    4G wimax curtain toggle. If it doesn't appear automatically, you may need to manually configure it in Settings > System > Notification drawer > Widget buttons > Toggle WiMAX.
    Video recording longer than 1:45min retains A/V sync.
    "Call has been lost." popup no longer occurs on a far-end call hangup.
    libaudio ported from crespo (Nexus S), resolves audio distortion during phone calls and improves Bluetooth audio quality.
    Re-enable SEC_ADJUST_LMK in kernel to fix the low memory killer. There was a problem where kswapd0 went crazy needlessly consuming cpu, killing performance and wasting battery.
    Manual brightness setting slider now works.

    UPDATE:
    CM9 alpha3 Monday, February 13th, 2012
    Battery Related
    Fix automatic brightness setting. In alpha2 you could save power by turning off automatic brightness and manually reducing brightness. This is fixed by updating the array values for brightness levels to match CM7 and stock. This reduces wasted power and hot screens reported by some users.
    Capacitive buttons backlights (Menu, Home, Back, Search) now mimic TW behavior by turning off the backlight after a 6 second timeout. This both saves battery and improves the user experience in darkness.
    Fix the power profile. Previously battery usage blame percentages were less accurate.
    LED charging indicator no longer turns off after you dismiss a notification.
    Switched to crespo kernel audio driver. The kernel audio driver (wm8994) now matches the userspace driver (libaudio) we added in alpha2. Should hopefully resolve speakerphone mic issues.
    Voicemail default number is set to your phone number and not *86 by default on new installs.
    MMS now shows profile faces.
    Fix roaming bug. Prior to alpha 3 opening Mobile Networks settings unintentionally disabled roaming. Folks upgrading from alpha2 should open System settings and ensure Auto: Domestic Roaming is selected to enable roaming support.
    Added roaming options. Alpha3 includes domestic, international, both, and no roaming options as found in gingerbread TW ROMs.
    Fixed the annoying "Data usage warning" that was previously impossible to dismiss from the notification window.
    Removed Chinese and Japanese IME. Install the better IME's from Android Market if you need Asian language input.

    UPDATE:
    CM9 alpha4 Sunday, February 19th, 2012
    Fixed the much hated Ringing of Death bug. This was the short chirp before the ringtone, or constant ringtone that would play during or after an incoming call.
    Fixed ICS multitouch protocol in qt602240 driver. This should make it possible to play certain multitouch games like Dead Space™. It also fixes the touchscreen driver with CWM 5.8+ (not released by koush yet).
    LED notifications have been changed to enable significant power savings. LED notification has been changed to blink every 15 seconds, roughly matching the delay in Samsung's EL30. This alone eliminates ~71% wakelocks, while previously the CPU was unable to sleep at all while the notification LED is blinking.
    LED notifications may be turned off entirely for additional power savings. Settings > Display > Pulse notification light. This allows you to continue to hear the notification chime and vibration without the added battery drain of LED blinking.
    Adjusted heap settings to match crespo. This is very similar to a popular tweak in the forums. It prevents some Out of Memory crashes (i.e. NPR News). You can use these three lines in /system/build.prop to benefit from this tweak prior to alpha4.
    dalvik.vm.heapstartsize=5m
    dalvik.vm.heapgrowthlimit=48m
    dalvik.vm.heapsize=128m
    Dialer will no longer lockup in rare occasions.
    Numeric battery % indicator now works!


    UPDATE:
    Changelog
    CM9 alpha5 Sunday, February 26th, 2012
    Fix to allow Chrome Beta to work on CM9.
    Fix that prevents the modem from crashing in certain conditions.
    Fixed ability to turn off blinking LED during low battery. Blinking LED causes the battery to drain faster. Settings > Display > Pulse low battery light.
    Slick new CM9 Bootanimation by Cameron Bezadpour, optimized for Epic by Rodderick.

    Additional Commentary:
    January 30-- Reading the boards, lots of differing results from a number of early adopters....................but, speaking for myself, a very contented camper here The conversation centers mostly around the use of TiB or other alternative app backup methods used to migrate apps over to CM9 from either CM7 (or other MTD ROMs); the OP requests that you create a backup prior to flashing CM9, using the following three apps (1) AppBak (2) SMS Backup + Restore (3) Call Logs Backup + Restore.
    .......................personally, Nickycho's App Backup and Reinstall (available from the Market) did very well by me --and I know that other users have their own personal preferences-- as Nickycho always does: it just worked great as I was able to reinstall all of my favorite apps pretty well w/out any problems; I avoided a batch reinstall, opting instead for a few apps at a time + running the settings piecemeal with each app, ensuring a very clean install overall.
    ...........alternatively, there is no reason NOT to run a backup of all your apps using AppBak in addition to running an app backup using your own personal backup tool..........ideally, you want a very CLEAN INSTALL of CM9 as this almost guarantees you better functionality down the road as you gradually expand to newer alpha versions + doing so from the position of a super functioning ROM baseline.

    ***NOTE: unless otherwise noted, you do not have to flash gapps every time whenever flashing a newer alpha beginning w/ Alpha2.........the install notes will tell you if there is any compelling reason to flash gapps immediately after flashing your alpha update..........If you are already running CM9 on a very stable basis, your update instructions/regimen as recommended by the CM Install Guide is as follows:
    "Upgrade
    Upgrades from previous versions of CM9 are the same process as install, except you do not need to wipe anything. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to even wipe cache and dalvik-cache when upgrading between CM9 versions. You only need to wipe if you are doing a major upgrade, switching to a different ROM entirely, or attempting to fix bugs caused by bad backups or corrupt app data."

    Time to get back to exploring CM9...........good luck everyone, will look forward to hearing other first impressions, once the DL pixie dust has settled!!

    Thanks for the post, sir! I will be following this closely and installing whenever I see enough reports that things are stable and smooth all the way around. :-) I'd do it now, but I don't have as much time to tweak and fiddle if something goes wrong.

    .......................A few ScreenShots on 2nd Post, lol.

    Am still meandering my way thru the various Features and Pathways of this new interface, after just shy of 24 hours of exploration time.....................And inching my way to a clean Nandroid prior to testing a couple of CM9 Kernels (there are now three!)...........it's been a fun build-up these past six weeks + even as recent as this past Friday there was some lack of certainty on several fronts just 'when' the Alpha Build would release.........so glad it's here for everyone to Enjoy!

    Thanks for all your support of our device Paul, certainly appreciate it!

    CM│9.1.0

    Default

    ALPHA1 is posted on download mirror site............comes with several basic fixes, including Soft Keyboard Dismiss when Slider is Open............remember to flash gapps immediately after flashing the update, prior to booting to system (you must always flash gapps IMMEDIATELY AFTER flashing the next Weekly, otherwise google apps will NOT stick)...........here is the Changelog:

    Changelog
    CM9 alpha-1 Tuesday, January 31st, 2012
    Location services - it was causing the CPU to spin for a long time wasting power. - Uberpinguin
    Soft Keyboard dismiss when slider is open - mkasick/wtogami
    CWM scrolling - wtogami/koush

    Cool, huh?

    *edit= all data migrated perfectly after flashing Alpha1 + Gapps, only thing missing was ShadowKernel which was to be expected as part of the install process anyway...........ALSO: it may not be necessary, but I wiped cache + dalvik prior to this flash............all is well!

    Couldn't resist any longer and flashed CM 9. A few minor bugs and a little lag once in a while but I am loving CM 9 so far!!!

    Kudos to the devs!

    If on CM7, will I need to install gapps?

    Is wimax working?

    You need to install gapps every time you flash a new version of CM 9.

    Wimax is working fine but the toggle in the pull down curtain does not work.

    Thanks.

    Think I will wait a week or so then make the jump from CM7 to CM9. Just want to let a few quirks get worked out. CM7 is running so good though I don't want to run anything else, hoping CM9 will run even better.

    I keep nandroids of each on card and switch back and forth. Takes about 5 minutes. Also, about the 4G toggle, the one in the notification bar doesn't work yet (still waiting for that to be added upstream), but there's a 4G widget you can place on your homescreen that's pretty convenient.

    For what its worth, even on the NS4G and our versions of CM7 & CM9 we don't have a functioning 4g toggle in the notification widget power bar...

    It's running like a charm for me. I surf, email, check feeds, take pics, and oh yeah make phone calls and it works great. Some bugs here and there, but overall easy daily driver. I came from CM7 where I had some issues. But I wanted to give CM another try and ICS is nice. I like to go through each setting. Also flashed ShadowKernel. The colors look brighter too.

    Default Re: CM9: CyanogenMod v 9.0.0-RCO-EpicMTD-KANG Released!!!!

    After a mere two days running CM9, + less than a day on the newish Alpha 1 update, have become aware of the number of new pathways that are being formed on our devices by some of us new users in the community............the odd things in the way of resolution An example: had a small bout with getting WiFi going yesterday, so immediately downloaded an alternative from here:

    Navigate to: code-google.com

    However, this morning after flashing Alpha1, the proprietary CM9 WiFi hotspot kicked in nicely and I have been using it ever since..............I don't think anything's changed, only that I now have two different fully functioning hotspots to explore + compare going forward (wifiTether_v3.1beta10 is my choice as a backup).

    And in this spirit, (sort of), have posted the CyanogenMod Troubleshooting Guide on the OP, as there are some issues that are known to the community, so we may as well be aware of these, and know where we may find the appropriate FIX. Additionally, here are some of the upstream issues that you will very likely bump into at some point in the future; as these are KNOWN ISSUES that are being addressed by the CM9 devs, it is very likely that we shall come to see a fix for these as well (sometime soon):

    *Battery percentage icon - not yet merged in CM9 upstream
    Configurable notification toggles - not yet merged in CM9 upstream
    4G wimax toggle missing from curtain (Waiting for upstream changes), use 4G toggle widget for now.
    Manual dialing causes Contacts to get stuck. Force kill it once and it seems to work after. Fixed?
    Hardware keyboard phones like Epic pick the wrong IME on a fresh flash. We temporarily workaround this in EpicMTD CM9 by deleting the Chinese and Japanese IME (you can install better IME's from Market anyway). However, we should find a fix for upstream CM9 to solve this problem. This issue was exposed by the soft keyboard dismissal fix.

    I know this is an Alpha build, but is anyone else seeing less than stellar battery life with this ROM? Any tips on increasing it?

    Last night I left my phone off the charger with WiFi on - lost 66% battery life over night. On Gingerbread ROMs I would lose 5% over the same time period.

    Thanks.

    before going to cm9 from stock rooted el30...how am I going to restore my apps and data? Or can i? I have titanium, should I use that? As far as I understood you shouldn't restore any data, so does that mean there is no way I can, lets say, retain my angry birds data etc.?

    In CM9, try navigating: settings / wireless & networks / more / Tethering & portable hotspot ..............connects quickly, + works flawlessly: good strong connection.

    The CM9 Install Guide (Link on OP) advices you to dl Appbak from the Market.......you can then backup all your apps there.......from bootup to CM9, you can use Appbak to reinstall TiB, then reinstall your apps from TiB as an alternative..........can not promise if your AB settings will migrate with this install.........so remember to grab a good clean Nandroid of your current set-up in case you choose to go back to stock.

    I am using Juice Defender Plus, I can easily get 15-18 hours of standby time with radios turned off when the screen is off. So far my Google apps like Calendar, Gmail, and Google Voice (VVM/SMS) push without issue. I really don't need any background data running when I am not actually using my phone. However it is set to ping every so often to allow apps to pull in data.

    I have it set-up to turn off wifi when the screen is off as well.

    I am using Juice Plotter to get approximate standby times and battery usage stats.
