CyanogenMod 9 makes its way to the Samsung Galaxy S III

Less than a month after its initial release, the wonderful Android development community has finally brought the popular CyanogenMod 9 custom rom to the Samsung Galaxy S III. The latest version of CM9 on the Galaxy S III comes in the form of nightly builds, meaning that there still isn’t a stable release out there.

Before you go ahead and flash CM9 on your Galaxy S III, you should know that this copy of CM9 is only for the international version, model number GT-i9300. In addition, there’s still some bugs to be worked out. At the moment, the FM radio doesn’t work; using the LED flash causes the camera app for force close on certain devices; and sometimes the device won’t wake up by using the volume keys.

If you want to see how things look, check out the video below. If you’re willing to try things head, head over to the XDA source link below and follow the instructions to get CyanogenMod 9 running on your GT-i9300 Samsung Galaxy S III.
