If you want to install CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 11 Android 4.0 ICS on Nexus S and Galaxy S here I am going to present you easy to understand and simple steps. However earlier than I get started this tutorial I’d like to give the thanks to Redmond Pie for this effort. So, below you can see the steps…
first of all I’d like to say that hopefully you’ll already be running an earlier version of CyanogenMod. If you are, skip to Step 2. If not, proceed to Step 1. To get started you’ll need to download the CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 11and Google Apps Add-on and you can get the above files from this thread.
DISCLAIMER: The below method is bit risky and we will not be held responsible if you lose data or your device gets damaged in the following of this guide so please proceed at your own risk.
Step 1: Root your Nexus S or Galaxy S; you might have to Google around for the latter. It’s an easy task but with quite a few steps. Return to this guide after your devices is rooted.
Step 2: Be sure ROM Manager is installed then open it on your device. Verify that ‘ClockworkMod Recovery’ has the latest version installed.
Step 3: Back up your data. While still in ROM Manager, scroll down and select “Backup Current ROM”. Once completed the backup can be found in your SD card under ‘clockworkmod’ directory. It may be a good idea to transfer this data to your computer in case you need to restore to an earlier state.
Step 4: Install ICS by selecting “Install ROM from SD Card” in the ROM Manager menu.
Step 5: Select “Wipe Data and Cache”.
Step 6: Select “Wipe Dalvik Cache”.
Step 7: Repeat the Steps 3 to 7, but this time with the Google Add-on files.
