For a long time, CyanogenMOD has been the salvation for many users on aging Android hardware, cutting through the bloated, slow OEM experience to bring you a clean build of Android’s finest.

Despite needing to know your way around a command prompt, Android hacking has become somewhat mainstream over the last couple of years; processes have shortened and become more straightforward and users feel more comfortable ripping the bloated sheath from a brand new phone to find its AOSP guts underneath.

Milestone builds are available to users who want the latest feature sets of CyanogenMOD, in this case version 10.1, without all the risky nightly business going on. Milestone 3, or M3 for short, builds are now available to most devices compatible with CyanogenMOD. These include the Nexus series as well as popular Samsung, HTC and LG devices, along with a few Acer and Asus tablets.

Get ’em while they’re hot.

    That’s awesome. I’ve been using the M2 build on my N4 and I’ve been really happy with it. Downloading M3 right now 🙂

    Can I put this on my TouchPad?

      I think they’re working on CM9 for the touchpad (Android 4.0).
      Not ETA, may never get finished.

    Running and kicking a$$ since last night on my N4.

    M3 feels pretty good so far.

    And that pie menu thing they added from Paranoid Android is very awesome; finally gives me an answer to the jealousy surrounding those newfangled Blackberry phones with no buttons on them at all.

    Ironically, I just downgraded from CM10.1 to CM10.0 on my Galaxy Nexus because 4.2 seemed very laggy on my phone compared 4.0 and 4.1. Now that I’ve been back on 4.1 for two days, I know it wasn’t just my perception. 4.2 has been a general disappointment and I hope we see the speed back up on KLP.

      In fairness though, 4.2 does run very smoothly on my wife’s N4.

      Same here. On a Nexus S, 4.2 is slow. I will try a clean install of this M3, but will probably go back to 4.1 that was perfect for this phone.

    Updated to CM10.1 M3 this morning from M2. Everything appears to be running smoothly on my d2att.

    I stick to the nightlies on my Galaxy Nexus cause they’re already really stable. I guess that isn’t the case for other Android phones.
