Finally there is some great news for all CyanogenMod fans waiting for the stable CyanogenMod 10 ROM for their respective Android devices. The wait has been worth it since the all new stable CM 10 comes with the awesomeness of Android 4.1.2 on-board As most of us to know that Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, Android JellyBean flagship devices, were made available for public a couple of days ago. And as these devices made their debut, Google made the Android 4.2 JellyBean source code available for the keen developers to escalate development of their ROMs, tweaks and hacks. This means that CyanogenMod 10.1 will be based on Android 4.2 AOSP code since CM 10 is now final and stable with Android Jellybean.
For those who are unaware, CyanogenMod is a custom OS for Android devices based on the Android AOSP source code. This alternative OS for Android devices has been ruling the custom ROM scene since its release on the original Android gangster –HTC G1. From that time onward, the team behind CyanogenMod has taken on various devices and made sure that their custom ROMs make the life of fellow Androiders easy and fun.
The best aspect of CM 10 is perhaps native integration of Pop-up SMS feature that isn’t available in non-custom Android operating system. There is also a type to reply option provided in this feature so you can forget going to your SMS inbox altogether.
The stable CyanogenMod Android 4.1 JellyBean has been made available in ROM Manager for compatible devices. However, the Google Nexus line, followed by the HTCs – this update is available for many of these phones now. We believe that in the near future, the CM 10 will be pushed out to all compatible devices.
For those who don’t rely on the ROM Manager for their stable or nighly CM builds, you can head to the official CyanogenMod 10 download page posted at the end of the article and see if the stable version is available for your phone.
In order to get CM 10 up and running on your phone, you will need to have permanent root on your device followed by ClockworkMod Recovery installed and unlocked bootloaders. For more insights and CM 10 features, please visit the official CyanogenMod Portal.
