Cyanogen Mod 9 “Trebuchet” launcher (alpha build) now available for ICS 4.0.3 users


One of CM9’s most anticipated features have now been released, Trebuchet expands upon what’s offered in stock Android with a host of new settings and features, like the ability to customize the number of home screens, and kill the persistent search bar if you want. Now, thanks to the release of an initial alpha build, early adopters can test out Trebuchet before it’s rolled out in CM9 next year.

The launcher, however, requires a rooted 4.0.3 device and as far as we know only a GSM Nexus S has been officially given a 4.0.3 update. Though a other devices like the Galaxy Nexus can run 4.0.3 code built from the Android Open Source Project, the command lines needed to install the launcher are not recommended for amateurs.

The current Trebuchet alpha includes just over half of the planned feature set — for example, extra functionality like infinite scrolling and transition effects have yet to be implemented. However, if you want a sneak peek at what’s coming in CM9 in the months ahead, you can find out more over at the source link
