PSA: Newest CM9 official nightly build delivers mic functionality

Many of  you familiar with the Android world may have caught the news that a cavalcade of devices received RC1 treatment from the CyanogenMod team. "What the hell does that mean?" you ask. Well, in a nutshell it means that these 37 devices took one step closer to what the CyanogenMod team considers a "stable" release. Either way, many of us with dual booted TouchPads rushed to the various forums on the interwebs in hopes that we too moved to the next step in the beta process but alas we are not quite there yet.

We're not left in the cold, as the newest CM9 official nightly build has a bit of functionality that has been missing for some time now. The newest build finally has mic support so we can utilize all the nifty apps and cool Android voice functions. We have found in our testing that it is hit and miss as to which apps work and which ones don't though. For example, trying to do a voice chat in Gtalk results in a force close of the app whereas voice chat in Skype works like a champ. So don't expect everything to work as intended for the time being. 

This functionality is yet another step forward in the progress toward a stable build for CM9 on the TouchPad. All that lacks now is a little polish on the mic service and getting the camera support up and running. These two bits have been an issue since the move from CM7 to CM9 but the CyanogenMod team are obviously hard at work to remedy both of those issues. Hopefully, one day in the near future we will have a fully stable release of CM9 to ride shotgun with Open webOS 1.0. In the meantime we will be more than happy to run the nightly next to webOS Community Edition in the very near future!
