The first Nexus phone which was recently discarded by Google as being “not eligible” for the Ice Cream Sandwich update is now breathing a sigh of relief as a group of developers are working on getting the CyanogenMod 9 ─ which is based on Ice Cream Sandwich ─ working on the Nexus One.
We all have been waiting so impatiently for the CyanogenMod 9 since the launch of Galaxy Nexus, and more since Google officially announced that they’ll not be upgrading the the Nexus One to Ice Cream Sandwich.
The CyanogenMod 9 for the Nexus One is currently in development phase, so you shouldn’t expect much from the ROM right now, but have faith fella ─ a completely working, stable and fast build of CyanogenMod 9 will soon be booting on a N1 near you.

Download and Install CyanogenMod 9 for Nexus One
I’d have definitely written a step by step guide for you to flash the CM9 on your Nexus One, but the ROM will constantly be upgrading as it’s in development stage right now, so I might not be able to update the guide at that rate. So the best way would be to wait for a stable version to be out OR you can go to the official development page and keep yourself updated with the latest builds, and flash it with help from the Big Android Guys there.
