The original Galaxy Tab 7-inch tablet from two years ago was left out in the cold when Samsung released ICS update plans, but official release schedules have never stopped the people at XDA before. The first release of CyanogenMod 9 for the tablet is now out, which is the ICS based version of CM.
As with most first releases, this is very much a work in progress. Mobile data, phone calls, and the camera are currently waiting to be fixed, while it’s otherwise pretty much up and running. The Tab’s 1GHz CPU and 512MB RAM aren’t exactly helping this port run smoothly, but there’s still plenty of kick in those old tablets. If you have one of those old things and want to give it a new reason to live, this might be exactly what you need.[XDA via Liliputing | Netbooknews]
