  • Jason says:

    Camera working, Bluetooth working and UI is smooth as butter.

    Great work and many thanks Maclaw, marcin1147 and Wayland_ACE

    keep up the great work!

    camera auto focus not working..

  • Viih says:

    I’ve instaled yesterday the CM9 Beta 10. If i install this new one, i’m going to loose all my apps ? or not ? :/

  • FTW says:

    So, should i use CM9 new version, or Cm10 ? who´s the best ?

  • SineWave says:

    Thanks for this. CM9B10 works great, will try this shortly. What baseband should I be using? I have a Gio GT5660V – Optus Australia version, I’m currently running “S5660MUGKG3” and sometimes have 3G/Wifi/Bluetooth issues. I recently downloaded the latest Optus firmware for my phone from, “S5660VXXKQK_S5660VOPPKQ2_OPP”, should I upgrade the baseband to the one in here?

  • Robert says:

    I tried to install this to my Ace Plus (s-7500)

    which returned me this:
    assert failed: write_raw_image(“/tmp/boot.img”,”boot”)
    E:Error in
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted

    Installed via CWM, with data wipe.

    If possible, could you check the issue, and make it possible for the given device.

    Great job nevertheless, it was a long awaited release!

    • Macław says:


      • Robert says:

        Actually, it’s a bit complicated to understand, because I’m not a top developer 🙂
        I thought that the divverence between Ace and Ace plus is only between the phone specs, so I tried..
        Thanks for the quick reply and keep up the good work!

      • adityaugusta says:

        So sad about camera.. on ics 100x better and faster. But camera 1000x better on 2.3 pliis maclaw fix it!!!

  • R4Ck says:

    Macław you are the best, even cyanogen has dropped our Ace, but you still porting. Thank you so much

  • heuay says:

    so if i just flash without wiping all my apps and data are safe.
    what about S2E. will it remain there or will i need to reconfigure it?

  • Kiicek says:

    OGM, amazing release. Mega smooth and lagless for me! I don’t really care about camera so it’s the final release for me 😀

  • HansH. says:

    Thnx i love this rom.

  • nathan-96 says:

    I know, Maclaw, you don’t really like me :p. But thank you a lot. RC1 is more stable than phiexz cm7.2 Also battery improved a lot. And what you doing, getting ICS (and even JB) working on a device that have a to low processor for GB. its just awesome.
    And just a smooth system, you made everything 100% working, except things with missing codecs (h/w) and less pixels. Everyone should understand, if you had them, your would be king

  • LightningBuzz says:

    This is simply awesome! So who said that Galaxy Ace is a mid-range devices?

  • Den says:

    Good job! Thank you!

  • Mike says:

    Wow this is fast! Thanks for your hard work, much appreciated. Cheers from Canada!

  • bieltv.3 says:

    Good job man you’re incredible, tahnks alot but I’ve got one question:
    Is the new camera breaking deep sleep when you open it and take a picture?

    Thanks for the good work 🙂

  • Paulo says:

    Thanks!!!!! Installing right now on my ACE!

    Great work!

  • spammer says:

    I cannot use the camera app or gallery to choose a picture .

    • himanshu shastri says:

      Still not stable :/
      Reboots randomly and apps keep on crashing 🙁
      But this is alot better than 2.3
      Thanks alot maclaw! You are the best!
      But do you have any idea that when will the final cm9 will be releasedctOctober?

  • Luix says:

    In JB beta 1 news reader works fine with gps of course.
    But in RC1 again it cant get my location. News reader and some apps doesnt work.
    The libs from JB are compatible with ICS?
    This is a issue.
    And is possible a way to read QR codes?.
    Thanks for all.

  • utak3r says:

    Jak na razie – wszystko ok. Płynnie i zadowalająco 🙂

  • jusaini says:

    Thanks Maclaw for RC1!! Everything is working except for one thing i really miss using. Camera works good but it doesnt connect with other apps like Scan, Instagram, and image editors. I been using beta 9/10 for everyday use so will continue with RC1.

  • le coq says:

    i have a probleme with wifi! I can’t switch “on” wifi! Help me! I using CM9 RC1! Thank

  • Hydragon1 says:

    Will there be a RC2 of CM9 with a Fully working camera?

    • Diproof says:

      Fully working camera is impossible, without drivers. As we have now is also impossible, but we have it. Soo maybe, but Maclaw can ask you about it clearly.

  • R4Ck says:

    How can i use s2e?
    When i open the app, my partition ext isn’t recognized.
    I’m using ext3, it has to be ext4?

    • heuay says:

      you need help creating mount script from link2sd. download and install link2sd then it will offer you to create mount script. select your file system. after that you can uninstall link2sd and enjoy s2e

  • Rob says:

    Superuser app
    Preference/security/automatic repines = allow.
    That works for me.

  • heuay says:

    try updating su binaries

    • ankbadar says:

      sorry for the nubie question

      • Macław says:

        Go to Superuser app and find Update SU binaries option 😉

        • ankbadar says:

          wow! how can i missed the info tab to the left on this app? lol

        • bejaminbodoky says:

          Hi! Is there any chance to get fully working GPS. Forsquare isnt working… for a long time! ?

        • Berkay says:

          Deep Sleep doesn’t work for me in my phone charging or after the charging. Do you know this bug ?

          • Berkay says:

            I’m solved this problem, but this rom still have some bugs. For instance; Sometime in the notification area icons doesn’t seem(Wifi, bluetooth, GPS and sound icons in short buttons doesn’t seem, but after 3-5 seconds they are come.)(Not only buttons, but also write=article doesn’t come)

          • digbijoy says:

            of course,few bugs will be there..this is only rc1..not a Stable release..even that too can have bugs like this

        • Berkay says:

  • Skyh4wk says:

    I bought my Ace one month ago and when I saw your work, I immediately installed Beta10.

    Now with RC1, I hope you will continu your work.

    Thanks Maclaw!

  • Harry says:

    YT HQ videos still laggy 😛
    Nice work MaclawStudios :)Keep it up!

  • Facundo says:

    Please do not disrespect. Maclaw is a god. Is doing magic with this ROM.
    Keep it up.
    A hug.

  • naman says:

    is overclocking working?

  • Diproof says:

    Thanks Masiej) awesome work is completed) so two questions:
    1) why ukrainian “honor” is absent in dev list in installation? 😀
    2) and now we have a taskbar bug. Its disapears sometimes. Many guys from have this bug. How it fix? Hope, you understand our position.
    PS and third question :-p How was your last holiday? 🙂

  • Yan says:

    Thanks for your work, guys, all we highly appreciate it. But what about CM10? Are you going to update it soon?

  • Piyush says:

    great work maclaw… i have a simple issue.. i just dont like the apollo player pre-installed in cm9! wish to replace it with SGSIII’s inbuilt one.. possible?

  • Paulo says:

    I used a few days and noticed that the system is really fast, the only problem I found was that the battery is running out very fast, six hours with no use … I ended up going back to CM7 …
    On the rest, the CM9 is great! really nice! I will try the next releases for sure!

    • Dejan says:

      I am getting the battery issue too. Especially on 3g (drained it in 10 minutes). Tried making changes to CPU governeor and switching off surface dithering, too early to say if it helped. Does anyone have a solution?

  • Victor says:

    Hi again, the camera work but i can’t configure settigs.. I can’t show photos, only in Galery :/

  • Ray says:

    Will WiFi Work On This Version For Samsung ACE

  • salmo says:

    can you do something in music videos?

  • cris90 says:

    Camera it’s so better than past, but there’s still 2 Problems :
    – HQ Videos on Youtube still interrupted
    – My phone Reboot from itself every few hours

    Can u help me Maclaw in these problems ??????

  • himanshu shastri says:

    Hey maclaw! My galaxy ace randomly reboots while im watching videos on youtube..!! And thanks alot for this rom i love i!

  • benjaminzer says:

    First of all, I would like to say thank you so much for developing ICS and JB to Ace. The Beta 1 of JB is pretty good. But since its beta, I would not complain the bugs, and the development is looking good so far.
    Also, the RC1 is pretty snappy/responsive. Got a score of 2100 in Antutu Benchmark. Kudos to you for that.

    Well, I do have some problems which needs to be looked at. Don’t mind knowing? Please read on….

    1. YouTube HQ/HQ video playback lag (well I’m sure you know this. But are you trying to fix it? BTW, I usually watch stored videos on my Ace at 720×480)
    2. Camera settings and recording (OK you might know this already. I’ll leave it to you)
    3. Superuser (seems to not remember my choice. Have to press Allow several times when doing a Titanium Backup restore. Same thing happened on CM10 Beta 1)
    4. Force close for certain apps(This ticks me off to be honest. AOKP Beta 3 and CM10 Beta 1 can play Fruit Ninja and some games without the force close problem. Unfortunately the force close problem on the games I’ve mentioned have been persistent since the beta CM9. Could you fix this please?)

    I hope I dont ask much. But if I’m do, then I’m sorry. But I hope you do look at the matters stated. But rest assured, you are awesome. And fixing these probs will make you awesomer.
    I wish I can donate lots to you. But I’m not 100% independent from my family especially in terms of finance 😛
    Have a great day boss 😀

    • Macław says:

      Hello 😉

      1. Yup, known issue, but what could I do without OpenMAX drivers (video acceleration drivers)? Too much work, and we have more important things to do for now 😉
      2. so I’m leaving that too 😉
      3. yup, will be fixed in next release 😉
      4. Don’t have that, Fruit Ninja etc. working great for me (paid version from Google Play).

      Wish you great day too 😉

  • Pavel Yordanov says:

    Hi Maclaw,
    I installed the RC1 on my Ace but the battery drained for 2 hours. What can i do?
    And also got into a mode where you see all the movements of your finger on the screen like a line and there are some numbers on the top of the screen. How did i do this and how to get out of this

  • coolboiz says:

    Waiting for cm10 rc1. 🙂

  • suraj jain says:

    Thanks for RC1.. everything is fine except BATTERY… its draining out fast

  • mat says:

    Hi Maclaw! You are making great work! I have a question: is there any option to emulate a front camera with video source from back camera on our devices? Maybe with virtual camera skype will let us make video calls… (?)

    • Macław says:

      I think it’s too much work (but I’m not saying it’s impossible – but I don’t have enough time for get fun with that).


  • Peter says:

    Google play does not work. Camera ICS does not connect. The standard Camera disappeared. I did only erase previous caches. Do you have the latest version of Google Apps for 4.1.1?

  • astalavista says:

    Hi, i just installed the CM9 and it works beautifully apart the Camera that is a work in progress but never mind that. The thing that kinda bothers me are:

    1. when I install the Flashlight app, the flash doesn’t work, it tells me hardware problem.

    2. The compass is working opposite side, I mean when I point it at north, instead of north it indicates south.

    3. How can I make all the apps to SDCard b/c some of them can’t be moved like Google Maps, Doit Tomorrow, Flashlight, etc

    Thanks for the great work

    Keep it up

    • Macław says:

      1. From ROM side flashlight is working. You must to ask developer of app why it isn’t working.
      2. Yup, strange problem. Don’t have any idea.
      3. Because developer must to agree for moving app to sd in app manifest. CM7 have option to force that option, but dunno why CM9 and newer don’t have this option.

      You welcome 😉

      • James says:


        I’ve already tried commenting about the compass as it’s my main irritation, but it doesn’t seem to have got past the moderation. I think the compass problem is that the magnetic field strength in/out of the screen is inverted. The 3d magnetometer/accelerator app shows it best. The arrow should point into the earth in the northern hemisphere. If you hold the phone face down and rotate it around, it gets the direction it’s facing correct.

        I think it’s a case of changing the sign on one of the CONVERT_M_{X,Y,Z} in android_device_samsung_gio/blob/ics/libsensors/nusensors.h


      • Akhil Narang says:

        1.Is there a default flashlight app?
        2.Can we activate BLN on CM9 RC1?

    • Gildan says:

      Use Link2Sd to move apps.

    • digbijoy says:

      use rom toolbox lite or pro version to move apps to sd…it requires superuser permission..its awesome..i moved maps to sd card…

  • jamie says:

    S2E does not work nor does a2sd or.link2sd an the ace is useless without ext3 partition

    • Macław says:

      I’m using Ace and Gio without ext3/4 partition. S2E should work, and it works for most people. If it isn’t, try to remove some useless for you things from /system partition (I recommend to remove only useless apps, but remember – some apps are needed to property system work).

      If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

  • Apurva says:

    Just installed the RC1. Looks and feels amazing.
    Thank you developers.. (Y)

    A couple of questions :
    1 ) The flashlight isnt working for me..
    2 ) Could you better the People app. Like the “show contacts with phone numbers” option is missing. Also if one could have the slide to call feature enabled there.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Macław says:

      1. It’s working in camera, dunno why most apps to use only flashlight aren’t working. Try to ask developer of any.
      2. It’s clear CM, try to ask CM team to improve them.

      If you have any future questions, feel free to ask 😉

      • Apurva says:

        1) Flash works on the stock Camera application.
        But when I go for a Flashlight app, it doesnt work in most, and even if it does, it is EXTREMELY laggy. For “Tiny Flashlight”, it gives a error it could not connect with the camera.
        2) Just a honest opinion. Will definitely contact them, but I doubt they will be as responsive as you are. 😛
        Can we use the default Contacts app from Samsung instead?

  • irgames says:

    Just want to say thank you guys for the amazing work! My Phone runs 100x faster than on 2.3!

  • Ray says:

    Well This Is What I Have To Say CM9 RC1

    The Design IS Completely Elegant To The Smallest Details.
    Battery Life Seems To Be A Bit Short.
    Performance Is Better.
    Camera Need Work, It Works But Auto Focus Is Missing, And Installation Of Third Party Apps Such As Camera 360 Doesn’t Work Even.
    WIFI Doesn’t Work.
    Sound Quality Seems To Be Much Better.

    Facebook Contacts Picture Support Would Be Helpful.
    And Facebook Album Display On The Phone Gallery Would Be Gr8.

    Gr8 Work Man

  • AngryBird says:

    Maclaw, do you think there is a possibility that HW Video acceleration will work ever?

  • Prince says:

    Please Help About Flash Player 11 How To Make It Work?

    • Macław says:

      As I said milion times: it’s unofficial port of Flash, I won’t change my ROM to get it working, if it isn’t. But people says it’s working, try to use other version.

  • Giulio Zausa says:

    Hi Maclaw you are my hero now my phone is 10000 times better!! I know that is very difficult, but can you make running the camera also with Instagram and other apps and port the default Samsung camera app to ICS? If you want any help I can develop in Java, C++ and C#, and I know a bit android. I have also an Galaxy Ace 🙂
    Thanks in advance, Giulio.

    PS: my e.mail is [email protected]

  • tegartri says:

    My 3G network is not working. Why??

  • Jamie says:

  • Zuazua says:

    CM9 rc1 is very fast!, Maclaw great job
    Just one question, would it be possible to fix the deep sleep after charging?

    Thanks for everything guys!

    • Macław says:

      It’s fixed, I didn’t rebooted my phone from two weeks and I still have working deep sleep 😉

      • Zuazua says:

        oh will not work for me, if I charge the phone, use the camera or bluetooth, deep sleep stops working.
        Any idea why it works for some people and not for other people?

        Anyway great work is amazing the work you are doing

  • AliReza says:

    maclaw vpn does not work

  • end says:

    Hello! I must say first that the work you have been doing is awesome and you’re making look evil to samsung company for not helping you to help us.

    I have a little question:
    ¿Does the ace got real hot when using with CM9RC1?

    I had (i was mugged) a galaxy ace and when i had it with gingerbread it get usually kinda warm, but nothing much. After i installed the CM7 (i think it was the 7th), i felt that the phone was getting really hot when using it! and i dont know really if it’s that a bad thing or not.

    😮 i hope you could answer this.

    Thanks a lot again and to all the dev team for your hard work and to make the ICS dream possible to ace users :).

  • Michael says:

    Thanks a lot for this new RC1. Runs really smooth. Fantastic works Maclaw. The CPU “undertacter” is really a nice feature.

  • minime says:

    Hi dude, just have one qusetion. Will be update one this monday?

  • Pilou says:

    Thank you, but how can I update from nightly ?

  • gianny says:

    please help me my camera can only take a picture it cant record anything

  • Killa says:

    Hi Maclaw.. I tried the CM9 RC1 and it’s amazing, but there is a problem with the music. The MusicFX and DSP manager are not working. It doesn’t have any impact on the music effects when changed. Can you fix this please..:-)

    • Macław says:

      It’s working, but for some players, which using their own decoder libraries, like PowerAMP, it’s not working and we cannot do anything with that.

  • STARS says:

    hi Maclaw
    great work, amazing…
    but there is problem with deep sleep, phone need to be restarted after camera usage or deep sleep wont work… can you do something about that???

  • Harsh says:

    Do I have to install this firmware in the same way as I did all the previous ones ? Why are people asking about Wipe data/Factory reset ? Isnt that a must before flashing the ROM ? Help me with it, Its always a tiring task to backup and restore. If I can flash it without reset and still have all my texts, apps.. It would be great. Is it possible ?

    • Macław says:

      1. If previous ones were be installed by recovery, no odin – yes.
      2. Because they can’t read… If you’re uploading to ICS from GB or from ICS to JB, you don’t have to wipe (but it’s recommended). But if you want to downgrade your system, you have to wipe.

  • Link Andy says:

    can i used 3rd camera app ?

  • ziv says:

    I have to say thank you so much!
    Even the camera doesn’t work perfectly, but I am not going back to gingerbread anymore.

    • Macław says:

      thanks 😉 Doing our best.

      • ziv says:

        I also notice that the battery drain pretty fast. I use CPU Spy to check, it reports that the CPU runs at highest speed most of the time even in idle, so I change the CPU Governor to Conservative, it should somehow helps the problem.

  • Ashray says:

    This is running really fast, but a problem. 1) After 2 – 3 days of trying to figure out whats wrong, I came to the conclusion that apps that want to use 3g Data, don’t work. It just can’t access the internet. On the other hand, the internet browser works with data.

  • Criss says:

    existen problemas con el navegador aun, esta excelente la cámara solo falta un poco de trabajo pero los felicito cuando mejoren el navegador y la cámara me cambiare sin duda

  • Javi says:

    Hi maclaw, i have a question, its posible to use the usb conexion with the laptop? i ask because i dont find the way to do it. Cheers

  • Michael says:

    Only one little, but not important point: When i activate the “Tethering & portable hotspot”, the screen keep always on “Portable Wi-Fi hotspot – Turning Wi-Fi on…”. The screen never shown the status e.g. “Hotspot activated”. The funcution runs well, that means i can well see the WLAN from my mobile on my computer. It is only a “Screen refresh problem” to show the actually status. But it also possible to download the APP “Open Garden”. With this APP all runs well. How i wrote, not important, only if you have too much time (i think you’ll never have too much time).

  • Roberto says:

    It’s working excelent…. but the camera it’s really buggy again and it broke the DeepSleep an haven’t autofocus (on ace)… THE BATTERY IS PERFECT… LIKE APOCALIPSE

  • thunderzak says:

    I want to install clockworkmod on my galaxy ace so that I could install this firmware, but I cannot find a tutorial on how to install CWM on Froyo (without updating to Gingerbread), can anyone help?

  • impmihai says:

    Hi!Good work with porting ICS to our devices!Thanks a lot.
    But at my gio deep sleep does not work and my battery drains very fast…can you solve that?

    cheers from Romania!

  • Eduardo says:

    when is out the netx rom cm9? because this rom have some bugs, the camera, sometimes the screen is frozeen and only can fix this with reboot, some games dont work and dont turn on the wifi. But the other thing works really fine, I like so much this rom, please fix the bugs. (I do all the wipes,cache,system and data,dalvik cache and battery stats. Sorry for the bad english :Z I only speak spanish

  • Flash_code says:

    Maclaw, hello! I have long been following this firmware and say that it is great! Thank you for this work, but still I do not give rest to one question (maybe I have already got 🙂 ) –
    1. I hope you take all still trying to get to work correctly HW acceleration? (on the CM10 it works almost good)
    2. P.S.: What the link I gave you last comment (on the so-called “codecs”)?

    Once again, good luck to you in overcoming difficulties. We believe in YOU! 😉

  • Jay says:

    Sometimes when my Galaxy Ace (CM9 RC1) restarts it’ll show a pop up that reads “Defualt message”. It appears to be a mistranslation and should read “Default message”

  • Bob says:

    Maclaw! Can you help me with my camera? It doesn´t do autofocus nor preview 🙁

  • Eduardo says:

    Excelent Job Maclaw!! Thanks for this RC release.

    Although there are some things that are not working right for me.

    1. Waze app doesn’t work well, gives me errors with the gps.
    2. The battery life is bad, I have to charge the phone twice a day, this didn’t happend to me with my previous rom.
    3. The IOS takes a lot of my phone’s internal memory, I can’t install several must have apps on my phone because it runs out of memory. I think there are several built-in apps that can’t be left out of the IOS bundle like the apollo player.

    Other than that, the rom runs super smooth and really fast. Keep up the work!

    but can I extend the lifespan of the batteries anyway?

      I find if you turn off the wifi when your not using it the battery life is good.
      There may be a bug with the wifi during sleep.

    Hello, I’m testing the CM9 RC1 and when I update an application I get the error “package file is invalid” … some solution?

  • Harsh says:

    Facing a problem with the Apollo app. It was working all fine these days. Yesterday I copied a new album to the SD that wasnt showing up inside the Apollo. So I went on to do a manual media scan in ‘Dev tools> Media provider’. I have done this on previous betas and it wasnt a problem in any way. This time I accidently tapped the ‘Insert 20 albums’ button. Now I am seeing music in apollo that never existed on my SD. Artists like ‘Abam Movime, Abbrifa van Mivob’ etc with an album each wherein there are 10 songs and none of which will play. (displays ‘error’)

    Now please, I want to somehow take them off my apollo. I have tried rebooting, running the media scan again, Remounting the SD, and ‘Wipe Dalvik Cache’ too. That thing would just stay there. More than 20 artists that I dont know about. Do I need to re-flash the firmware ? Is my problem common ? Help please, I need my old organized music app back 🙁

    Great ROM, unfortunately severe problems with some APPs, e.g. Telekom NAVIGON Edition. So not usable yet for me. Very sad, ’cause performance, usebility and touch and feel are very smooth like CM9 on other devices 🙂

    Sometimes when i oppen camera it gives me the message that the camera doesnt exist. Also sometimes there is lag between the flash and the actual picture so it comes out dark.
    Other than that the RC1 is working pefect, hope that RC2 has video suport 🙂

  • Dejan says:

    Awesome work Mclaw! beautiful, stable and fast. But the battery drains fast. I installed BetterBatteryStats. Would you be interested in looking into it? I could send you the dump. Seems a few people are having issues. Didn’t have this issue on GB…

  • Husramash says:

    Thanks Maclaw for this smooth and stable rom.

    However there is one issue left what i can see, and that is when watching YouTube videos for a long time will make the phone reboot.

    Me and my friends all use this CM9 RC1 so i know it’s a common problem.

    Do you have any plans for fixing this or is this not a priority at the moment?

    Please let me know.

    Anyway, i really appreciate your hard work. Thanks!

  • Bluefire says:

    Apps can’t locate my position with internet unless I turn on gps. The google maps app keeps saying my location service is not on when it is on in system settings. Also, I keep getting a message saying that the system process has stopped responding. Is there a workaround for the above problems. By the way, this rom is awesome! 🙂

    Hi Maclaw!

    I have similar problem as Ziv: the CPU runs at highest speed most of the time even in idle. It drains the battery very fast! After I restart it’s ok, but then the problem came out again. It will be fixed?

    Anyway the rom is almost perfect!

  • Adam says:

    overall, it’s a great rom except for battery life. Can’t even be compared to cm 7.2. I notice many reported this as well. Bt, wifi, gps all off. Screen brigthness minimum, cpu clock lowered, and 2g connection doesn’t help. Still can’t find any solution that worked.

  • XaS says:

    Well … this release is damn slow/laggy for me. CM9 actually gets slower with every release for me, and considering the amount of positive posts about this release, there must be something wrong with my phone. I reverted back to my stock GB 2.3.6 ROM (via Odin) in the meantime but I’m stumped. Maybe reinstalling CM9RC1 on top of GB is the right way to do it ? Has anybody experienced this strangeness ?

  • Saurav says:

    Hi, Maclaw incredible work you guys have been doing here.
    I have noticed few things with RC1 release on my ACE which i would like to bring to your attention.

    1. The Battery drains very fast on using phone even when the brightness is lowest. If i don’t use the phone like in case its in standby then its fine but while browsing or playing game it drains pretty fast.

    2. Wifi HotSpot does not work.

    3. USB tethering is also not working.

  • Nunki says:

    Hi Maclaw,

    In any version of your CM9 for Ace (even RC1), while trying to use the Google Maps Navigation, it take several minutes to find location (“Waiting for location”).

    In CM10 beta1, Navigation finds his location much faster (about 2 secs) although Google Maps crashes short after.

    Thanks for your work 😉

  • TieoS says:

    Hi maclaw. Congrats on the hard work! I have found a bug in voice search, when I press it from the launcher directly and not from app drawer, it does not work? Check it and maybe fix it in rc2? Cheers

  • Alex says:

    Sorry for the newbie question — what is the correct way to update Gio from standard Android 2.4 to the RC1? Wiping all the data before the installation gives the error message that it can’t mount app2sd, and then after the installation of RC1 I got a lot of errors like “exchange service stopped”. I also can’t go to the settings, no menu appears at all. What did I do wrong? Please help!

  • Shaz says:

    Nice job !

    Bugs I found so far:
    – I’m using Waze app, and this one can’t access to GPS. Do you have any clue ? Anyway Google Maps and other maps using GPS work.
    – SuperUser can’t remember given authorizations (you already know that 😉 )

    Very greet rom for my old galaxy ace 5830.

  • Dejan says:

    Me again!
    did some diagnostics with BetterBatteryStats and BatteryMonitor. Wifi is the biggest battery user. BBS reports ar6k_wow as top kernel wakelock. Looks like the wifi is not sleeping properly. Battery lasts about half a day with really minimal use and no 3g at all! This is on Galaxy GIO. I can send the BBS dump, log cat or anything you need. Please let me know.
    dejannk at google’s email…

    • Dejan says:

      CORRECTION: wifi sleeping OK. I left it on overnight and it didn’t use much at all, so wifi sleeps OK. But using it uses a lot of battery. Daughter was watching Youtube videos for about 20 minutes and that consumed 20%+. And ar6k_wow was number one user not the screen!?

      also, phone restarts occassionally. Hard to say why, but it could be also wifi related. never does when wifi off.

      also, when booting cyd animation is not showing. this is not very important but could be a sign of something else being wrong. after the first samsung screen, screen goes black and stays like that until it boots. i have to press the power buttion for the lock screen to show.

      I did do a full wipe and reinstalled rc1, but same thing…

  • Viih says:

    Hey Maclaw, why don’t you focus only in one project ? Don’t you think it would be much more productive to start and focus in this project to later start another ? I think 2 projects on the same time it’s too much. A lot of people asking for things.

    Focus on ICS and then continue Jelly Bean.

    sorry for bad english ;~

  • Jose says:

    Hello Maclaw!

    Your work is amazing! I flashed my Ace today and I simply love it. It has the same bugs that the others have (camera, battery, bluetooth, etc) but I will follow your updates for now on. But do you have an approximate date for the next RC?

  • badack says:

    thanks for this ROM, its great…..

    I installed it yesterday, replacing CM7.1.
    flash without wipe, not worked…….
    only worked fine after I wiped everything.

    here is somethings (bugs?) that I found so far:
    – camera works, but without auto focus. images taken doesn’t look good.
    – sometimes, bluetooth is difficult to turned on, I got to reboot to make it works. Looks random.
    – sometimes, Data usage is difficult to open, and ends with Not Responding message. Looks random too.
    – Apollo is not showing any album art. I haven’t try other music player.
    – Battery only last for 1 day with minimum usage, but I guess its just my battery that gets old and need replacement.

    I haven’t test the GPS and wifi, but I hope it works fine.
    other than that, it works great….feels like a new phone 🙂

    thanks again, maclaw.

  • madman says:

    Hey Maclaw! greatly appreciate your work,

    i have one question, I am using the CM9-RC1 , it’s related to camera,

    can you please put a patch here to go back to the no-preview camera of beta 8 or 9(if i am not mistaken) ,

    Preview is a good thing to have, but it is no longer compatible with other camera apps, and you can’t adjust anything at all i.e. image resolution etc. the without preview camera drivers worked fine with “camera 360” and other camera apps, so is it possible that you give me the old camera drivers(or whatever you call them :),) as a cwm patch etc. i myself prefer no preview with all other functionality than just a preview. Regard. 🙂

  • Agustin says:

    (brace your self, bad english coming)

    hi maclaw, your work fucking rules!!! a few mins a go , i instal cmd 9 RC1, and is fantastic, but a problem apears, i need use “anchorage zone wifi” (google traductor) to bring internet to my pc and the option set in grey, but nothing hapen, i reboot, over and over, and try again, but nothing happen, i must to go back with the rom, until, this work, o i find the way to fix, have you any idea?
    i really realy want to use your rom!!!

    Great work maclaw! Just some bugs – i can’t get none of the navi apps to work (sygic, navigon), they just force close. FC also happens with link2sd – i can see the apps interface for a brief moment but then it crashes. Can’t seem to get the s2e working either – it can’t find the ext3 partition. And rom lags sometimes pretty bad, although it’s a fresh install (no ram scripts, no OC, nothing)

    Hi! Thanks for CM9 RC1 update! Really good job. My Galaxy Ace become faster and battery works perfectly. But I have some other small problems to you.
    First is USB connection. I can’t browse my device on PC. I remember Gingerbread, there was message appeared in toolbar, that i can connect to PC and so on, so on… Now this message advise me only to plug/unplug cable (SD card). P.S. USB debugging of course switch on.
    And second, I can’t use automatic location for weather and calendar, as for weather it becomes unavailable, as for calendar it starts my week with Sunday, that isn’t correct. Google location service is working. It looks like I should change my region (CSC code), but how can I do it, old keyboard combinations like *#1234# and others don’t work. Is it possible on this update?
    Thanks in advance.

    Loving this ROM – thanks to those who put it together.

    I struggled to get Link2SD reliably mounting my SD card so switched to s2e. Had to reduce my ext3 part to 2GB as s2e was getting confused with a 4GB part.

    However I may need to flash to the 10 beta or back to stock as I can’t get the GPS to work. Is their a fix or way to get GPS working? I can’t find much/any info on it…

    Thank you so much for your work.

    Before i proceed installing i want to know if this is compatible with GL-s5830L (the “L” means that the 3g frequency is GT-S5830L (RWLTCE): HSDPA 850 / 1900) and if the 3g will continue working. thanks again !

    Super thanks for this powerful rom. Not perfect but working fine! Will wait for more exciting uploads:-)

  • ziv says:

    I think I find some bugs about this rom:
    First the jpg thumbnail file generated by the camera app is corrupt. And sometimes deep sleep isn’t enabled after finish charging and have to reboot. 🙂

  • MrDLink says:

    Tethering and WLAN-Hotspot is not working like in beta10 and beta9. RC1 is still a beta…perhaps its better to finish CM9 before starting CM10?

    Hey Maclaw,
    I have a little problem with my Galaxy Ace. Somehow, my phone isn’t able to install ROM from zip file, it says Installation aborted or some other error all the time. I tried it from all ROMs etc. but only way to flash it is via Odin. Is there any posibility to flash this awesome ROM via Odin? I am used to it and now I lost it and I can’t get the older version to phone neither…my recovery mode can’t even install CWM, so I can’t do nothing without Odin…thanks very much for your response and keep that good work! 🙂

    Hi what do I do if my boot animation only shows up after a crash? From a good boot, it just shows blank screen.

    Please help.

  • Peter says:

    My boot animation is still now showing up, not only that after booting it shows up blank screen with the soft menu/back button leds lit up but I can’t do anything until I press power button twice to bring the lock screen back on. What’s the problem, I see a lot of xda posts but no resolution. Most of them say the boot animation is disabled but I’m pretty sure it’s not disabled. If my phone crashes and reboots by itself, the boot animation will show up. What is the problem here?

  • Jiri says:

  • neptern says:

    Just flashed this firmware on my galaxy ace and it is working perfectly after calibrating the battery.

    Only gripe i have is the camera which is still very laggy and will even slow down the phone etc.I think this is the only thing that really need fixing.

    Other than that everything is ok.Will post if there are any other problems.Thx Maclaw for the great work!

  • jakfirestorm says:

    cm9 rom works very fine. but the rom is a real battery killer after full charge is completly dead after 12h in standby!

  • It seems USB tethering isn’t working, which is kinda annoying. Wifi tethering isn’t working either, I also tried copying some firmware files from the Samsung 2.3.6 firmware for the ar6000 driver, but it didn’t have any effect…
