CyanogenMod 9
CyanogenMod 9 Final Version
CyanogenMod 9 Final Version is an open source replacement firmware for smart phones and tablet computers based on the Android mobile operating system. CyanogenMod 9 Final Version offers features and options not found in the official firmware distributed by vendors of these devices.

Features supported by CyanogenMod 9 Final Version include native theming support, FLAC audio codec support, a large Access Point Name list, an OpenVPN client, an enhanced reboot menu, support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB tethering, CPU overclocking and other performance enhancements, soft buttons and other "tablet tweaks", toggles in the notification pull-down (such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS), app permissions management, as well as other interface enhancements. According to CyanogenMod 9 Final Version's developers, CyanogenMod 9 Final Version does not contain spyware or bloatware. CyanogenMod 9 Final Version is also stated to increase performance and reliability compared with official firmware releases.

CyanogenMod 9 Final Version is based on Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Steve Kondik and his team have announced that they had begun work on the new release after Google released the source code of Android 4.0.1. Development on CyanogenMod 9 Final Version release took longer than with previous releases due to the significance of the changes between Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" and 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich", and the team took this opportunity to clarify their vision for the ROM and rethink any modifications which were no longer necessary due to improvements within Android.

By the last days of November 2011, some alpha versions of CyanogenMod 9 Final Version had been distributed, in particular for the Samsung mobile phones Nexus S and Galaxy S. On 9 August 2012, after various betas and release candidates, CyanogenMod released the finished version of Cyanogenmod 9. Major changes are seen on the interface of CyanogenMod 9 Final Version such as GPS, WIFI, Bluetooth and profiles are shown on the top of the notification area. Many changes are also on the setting where some new items were added. Overall, CyanogenMod 9 Final Version is faster than the stock rom.

    1. Before i can help, first tell me about your device type. every device has different way to get into recovery mode. if you have galaxy nexus or other nexus devices, just press power button + volume up and down together. in fastboot mode, use the volume up or down to scroll to recovery mode. press power button to confirm. samsung devices usually use combination of power button + volume up or down + the button on the bottom of the screen together. You should try this combination one by one.
