CyanogenMOD 10 nightlies now available for the Samsung Galaxy Note

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 may be coming soon, but the original device, at 5.3-inches, is still a monster to be reckoned with. In fact, many users are going to prefer the larger form factor and 16:10 aspect ratio to the more phone-like Note 2, which hews more closely to the Galaxy S III than a traditional phablet (if we can even say “traditional” and “phablet” in the same sentence).

If you’re getting bored of waiting for Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean to roll out to your particular device, or just want to test the waters of the latest and greatest, the CyanogenMOD team has officially made available CM10 nightlies for both the international and North American variants of the Galaxy Note.

Unlike Samsung’s default TouchWIZ software, CyanogenMOD is based on the Android Open Source Project and looks almost identical to what you’d find on a Galaxy Nexus. It strips much of the excess out of Android, leaving it mean, fast and gorgeous. For a quick guide at where to start with CyanogenMOD, which requires your phone to be rooted and have a custom recovery, hit up this thread at XDA-Developers.

If you’re a seasoned flashing veteran, head to for all the CM10 goodness.

    that awkward moment when the nightlies have more changes/upgrades than the iphone (which takes a year, yearlies?)

    I guess this is for the i717 galaxy Note? I really like the work of DaGr8 on the note + he’s from the same province as me.
    Chech his thread on XDA.

    It’s quite good but still a bit buggy (hard freezes here and there, Bluetooth oddness). Just went back to cm9 today for the increased stability. It’s a bit frustrating though because jb is much much better.

    This seems more difficult to do. Any help would be appreciated.

      @ferg – boot to recovery, wipe cache/system/dalvik. flash rom + gapps.

      @ferg: Navigate to the XDA forum. You will find a lot more detailed instructions than on a thread like this.
