CM9 ICS for Xperia arcThe FreeXperia development team has delivered an early Christmas present by releasing Alpha 001 of CyanogenMod 9. As many of you know, CM9 is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, so this will appeal to those who want a close to stock experience of ICS versus Sony Ericsson’s skinned ICS alpha ROM that released recently.

As with any alpha release the ROM is not entirely functional and in this case the camera, USB Mass Storage and MTP is not working. However, it does have working GSM, touchscreen, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, wireless tethering and partial 3D graphics. This is a super effort by the developers, if you want to give this a try, you can find all of the details here.

Thanks Jose and ZyxeLa!
