CyanogenMod’s Trebuchet hurtles itself into 4.0.3 devices

CyanogenMod, the community favorite when it comes to custom ROMs, has released an Ice Cream Sandwich launcher called Trebuchet (get it?). Trebuchet is only available for Android 4.0.3 devices. If you feel like you’ve been shortchanged, you’re not alone. You’re in the 99%. We didn’t report on this just to tease you though, this just shows us that progress is being made and soon (fingers crossed), we will see CyanogenMod 9 poking nose into our Android devices.

The launcher is still in pre-alpha stages, but is available for download from XDA Devs. That means that it’s not going to be a straight forward install nor will it support all the features we probably take for granted now. However, it isn’t shabby by any means. It supports a user-defined number of home screens, allows you to disable the persistent search bar, widget resizing, and auto-rotate. Of course, we will see more as development continues, but for now, we’ll have to be satisfied with the latest. Hats off to all the devs on the CyanogenMod team. Thank you and HURRY UP!!! We want CM9!!!
