If you’re a fan of CyanogenMod Android based firmware and you own a Galaxy S III then there’s great news!  An official CyanogenMod 9 Nightly build has been released courtesy of the devs over at XDA-developers.com..

The CM9 S III ROM aims to lessen the TouchWiz UI on the stock Samsung ICS, and converts the S III to a more AOSP look.  There are a few issues with this release, however, and it’s not quite perfect just yet.  If you use your S III’s radio function then you will have to download an FM app from the market when switching over to this CM9 build.

Also, avoid taking pictures that require flash as it may cause “problems”,  and the LED doesn’t light up when you charge your phone.  If you want more details, head over the official CM9 Nightly  SIIl XDA thread. There are no benchmarks yet to show performance differences between the CM9 and the stock ROM.
