Updated CyanogenMod 9 Ice Cream Sandwich for EVO 3D (CM9 ICS)

Android hacker/developer JoelZ9614 has released an updated version of his CyanogenMod 9 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the CDMA EVO 3D! It was released at about 9pm UTC on Saturday, February 11, 2012 (2:19am EST on Sunday, February 12, 2012). I’ve installed the ROM to check it out, and it seems the video glitching has been fixed, which definitely makes it a better build than the last.

Of course, being a beta build, not everything is 100% working. Major functionality that is still not working:

  • Full hardware acceleration (video playback does not work)
  • Cameras
  • 3D
  • 4G
  • USB mass storage
  • Google+ and Google Talk

If any of these are dealbreakers for you, this probably won’t be a daily driver. If you install Gapps (Google Applications), you may experience problems with Talk and Google+. I could not get them to work properly. Talk crashes when trying to connect, and Google+ goes into an endless loop between saying Signing in… and then it pops up a dialog that says Couldn’t connect to the server.

I haven’t tested all apps, so there may certainly be issues with others as well. You can download this build of CyanogenMod 9 for the EVO 3D at
