View in galleryIce Cream Sandwich hits the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi model. This comes in from XDA-Developers forum member DaAwesome1 and ericj83’a for releasing what is a KANG for CM9. Please bear in mind that this is not the official CM9 ROM. The ROM is based on Android 4.0 and said to have a broken Camera as the only non functional feature right now. However, there might be glitches and bugs in the ROM that you can encounter if you give this ROM a go on your device.
Installation of the ROM is a very simple matter if you have previously been flashing custom ROMs to the Tab. However, here are the instructions for those who want to play around with this ROM.
