    May not be completely true, but this is great news!

    Haha idk if it's necessarily a secret or not, but if he wanted people to know he probably would have posted something. I'm sure he doesn't want people bugging him for updates and such.

    I doubt it. Considering this is the first we've heard of it, a fully working CM9 ready for download isn't very likely.

    CM10 or CM9 would be kewl. An AOSP rom would also be sweet. I just want Android 4+ in mah pocket.

    Yes, I have crm9 building from source and booting up. Right now thats about all it does is boot up. You get a boot animation and then the launcher. If you wait a while, the screen goes off and you get the lock screen. Touchscreen works poorly, all the buttons work, no wifi, no audio, no bluetooth, no phone.

    There are no screenshots because, well, it looks identical to any other cm9 right when you boot it up. There is no download link because I'm not about to upload several hundred MB if data just to prove that it kinda works.

    Is there a reason you chose CM9 over CM10? Stability?

    Settle down meow.

    True, it is exciting that any of our source built ROMs are booting, but you have to understand that it is just a small victory and a first step. Getting everything working is likely going to be a battle and as seen with many CM builds, sometimes even as hard as devs may try, not everything ends up working.

    The first rule of CM is not to ask for ETAs.

    I chose cm9 over 10 because cm9 is frozen. That means the people making it have decided that it is super stable and working really great. They are not adding new features because all the current ones work right. Getting any version of cm is going to be a lot of work and I would rather work on getting the super-stable version going on our phone. It would suck really bad to get cm10 working only to find out that we have to wait anyways on some upstream bugs to get fixed before our camera and bluetooth will work or something like that.

    Even so most would still choose gingerbread due to the fact it has everything working and cm9 will take a LONG time to have everything fixed

    the only thing in my cm10 build that doesn't work is video camera. everything else is pretty solid,so cm9 should be about the same. aokp is solid also. it has same video recording problems as cm9/10. to me the video issue is minor. so I would assume any build of 9 for optimus elite should be about the same in functionality.

    Usually, each device is different and has its own unique issues, unless they have the same/similar boards and components.
