    Their opening the kernel because they been having so much trouble with the P9000 running right, that they are looking for 3rd parties to bale them out.

      Yeah, they still couldn’t sort out their bugs. They hired a backwater developer like Deepflex to work on their rom. (no offence to Deepflex) That’s why it still suck. Cynogenmod just laid off some developers, should hire them instead, will definitely see real improvement with proper developers
