    I would like to try CM9 on my phone, but first I want to root to back up applications with Titanium Backup. I am coming from stock ICS. Does the following sequence of steps make sense?

    1) Install a rooted version of the UCLE5 kernel. I found directions on XDA here: [Heimdall][Odin][Stock][Root]UCLE5 Stock ICS with Root - xda-developers
    2) Backup the apps I am interested in with Titanium Backup.
    3) Install CM9 with the directions on the CyanogenMod wiki (Samsung Galaxy S II (AT&T): Full Update Guide - CyanogenMod Wiki). Will these directions work when coming from stock ICS? To get clockworkMod recovery, these directions say to install "codeworkx's Kernel with the ClockworkMod Recovery". Will that work since I am running stock ICS? Or is that kernel only for GB? There is no reference in the directions to the level the phone is currently running so I was not sure if it mattered.

    More generally, for those running the stable build of CM9, is it working well?
