CyanogenMod modding music player for Android 4.0

CyanogenMod modding music player for Android 4.0 As part of CyanogenMod 9, the team behind the popular custom Android ROMs will tweak the default music player in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, making it available to users with or without root.
The music player, while certainly capable, has very few ways to customize outside of some settings for playback or a tick for Google Music integration. The tweaked player will add a huge amount of customizations, say the Cyanogen team.

According to developer Andrew Neal (via Verge), "you'll be able to set custom shake actions (i.e. for next song or play/pause) that can work throughout the OS or when the screen is off, custom notification area controls that can have as many or few controls as you'd like, the ability to search Android Market, set ringtones and swipe-gestures throughout the app."

Furthermore, Neal is looking to add "a full theme engine" for anyone who wants to customize the looks of the app.

If you have a rooted device, the player will be integrated in CM9, but if you are not you are still in luck. A stand-alone app will be made available for free in the Android Market.
