Newly arrived Samsung Galaxy W has been given a treat by porting a CM9 for it. This port is currently in progress but can still be installed and tested. The CM9 looks exactly like ICS.
This port seems a lot of work considering that the motherboard of this device is completely different.
Hats of the developer named arco68 of this wonderful creation.
He says this in his post -
After over 3 months of work, 2 hard-bricks (and a few soft-bricks) and a lot of coffee, it's time to release the first alpha version of CM9 for the Samsung Galaxy W (GT-I8150). This is very much still work in progress, but it should be decent enough now that it's usable, if you don't heavily rely on the not working stuff.
