    • Sathishkumar Varatharajan says:

      Glad to hear that you have installed the ROM. Yup, its working with “S Pen” and “S Memo”.

  2. i have a question .. i have a samsung n7000, and i recently update through kies to android 4.0.3 . What’s the difference between that version and cyanogen mod 9 ics 4.0.4? Which one is better and why the one from cyanogen looks different ?

    • Sathishkumar Varatharajan says:

      Hi Alex,

      Android 4.0.4 is an updated version of Android 4.0.4. That’s why the one version you installed on your device using Kies is different from the CyanogenMod version.



  3. One question…

    If I install this update, there’s no problems with the Wipe and Recovery as showed in: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1633943
