Alpha Release #1 "Project Mayhem"Things expected to work:
- based on Android Open-Source Project (AOSP) v 4.0.3_r1 (IML74K)
kernel (without reflashing), ability to choose OS after power on.

- touchscreen (multitouch)
- hw buttons (volume, power)
- ECI accessory (headset buttons)
- USB networking
- lcd off in sleep mode

The same as: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/CyanogenMod_Wiki:General_disclaimerInstallation HOWTO:
1. Install dual-boot kernel as described here: http://forum.nitdroid.com/index.php?topic=90.0
2. Install sillyboot. Details: http://forum.nitdroid.com/index.php?topic=91.0
3. Are you ready for NIT? ДА или НЕТ?!?
a. Download tarball from here: http://downloads.nitdroid.com/e-yes/n9/nitdroid_n9_ics_alpha1.tar.bz2
, check its integrity, md5 sum for this archive is ee57d8c3b9199e87bb5c355e8c9d1cc3
b. copy the archive to your Nokia N9.
c. execute "as root" command:
tar xjvf /path_to_archive/nitdroid_n9_ics_alpha1.tar.bz2 -C /home/
4. Reboot, push "Volume Up" button when message "Press VolUp to boot alternative OS" appear . Wait a little, pray a little...
First of all: go to Settings->Display->Sleep, choose "30 minutes". Critical defect ("too deep sleep to ping watchdogs") is yet to be fixed. Don't let your device sleep.
Otherwise it will switch off:)
5. Usefull stuff:
get adb from Android SDK (http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
Commands that would make your life easier:
adb connect 192.168.2.15:5039 -- connect to your device. USB/ADB is broken, but ADB works well over USB networking.
adb logcat -- for reading "main" log
adb logcat -b radio -- for reading "radio" log
adb shell -- to enter to shell
adb pull/push -- allow get/put file from/to the device
adb shell rr -- "restart radio" -- restarts ofono and RIL
adb shell bb -- show battery/charging status6. Hot fixes:
