    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 5.0.2.3". 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?

    Thanks,
    Peter
