FreeXperia dev team teases CyanogenMod 9

The FreeXperia developer team have done wonders in supporting Xperia devices since the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 launched in March 2010. Their collective efforts (along with the help of Sony Ericsson) led to an official CyanogenMod 7 release and now they are hard at work on the next major CyanogenMod release, CM9.

CM9 will be based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Cyanogen recently confirmed that work had begun on CM9 following the release of the ICS AOSP. FXP of the FreeXperia team teased a few screen images of CM9 and there’s another live photo of an Xperia ray running Android 4.0.1. It’s great to see ICS up and running already and, as you’d expect, the port is only partially functional at this stage. However, given that in all likelihood we’ll see a stable custom ICS ROM appear before the official Sony Ericsson release, this is one we’ll be keeping a close eye on. See the images after the cut.

    Pardon me for the basic question, but I now have my stock ROM rooted (2.1, Japanese docomo SO-01B), and I can do WiFi tethering in ad-hoc mode (IBSS mode). If I could get CyanogenMod 7 or 9 running on this phone, would I have infrastructure mode available for the WiFi tether? My Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is locked down hard, and no one has been able to root or unlock the bootloader, so my tablet won’t connect to my phone.

    Alternatively, when android 4.0 comes out for my tablet, if I can’t root it before then, is stock android going to be able to work with ad-hoc mode?

  • What about the WT19i / “Live With Walkman”? So far I see this once out of most of the devices listings of any Xperia related activities.
    Thanks in advance,
