Lately many Android phones have been receiving early ports of Google’s new update, Android 4.0. One of the most notable is the original Nexus phone, the Nexus One. While there was previously a poor port of the SDK preview, it now has a full port from ICS’ AOSP through Cyanogen Mod 9. It’s still in alpha form, so don’t expect everything to work, but we’re still amazed that a Android phone almost two years old is still getting the newest update.
Owners of the now ancient Nexus should really take note, as this will be the only way to get 4.0 onto their device (Google has confirmed they will not be updating the phone). Also, be aware that it’s still an early build, and not everything works (the camera, trackball, and USB mass storage aren’t, plus more). Remember to backup everything just in case. And as always, remember that you are doing this at your own risk, and we are not responsible. Anyone still rocking the original Nexus? Planning on flashing the new ROM? Let us know in the comments!
