CyanogenMOD 10.1 is making progress, but product is “far from complete”


  • Dan

    Where can you buy those Android robots?

    Far from complete, but probably still faster than OTA.

      I bought a basic green one at Best Buy. Though Deadzeabra sells/makes them

    CM roms are great but kinda bloaty with additions they like put in. Don’t get me wrong, they build a great rom, but I have found roms like RasBeanJelly (yes that’s it name =D ) and SlimBean strip out everything that is unnecessary and are much smoother and less resource intensive than CM (at least on my considerably “ancient” Nexus S. I’m currently using knzo’s MDO rom which is based on RasBeanJelly with a few mods and it is SPECTACULAR!!!, especially with a custom Marmite kernel =D )

    Speaking of kernels, if you are already going the route of custom roms, you might as well get a custom kernel as well. I would recommend Marmite, Air or Trinity (I use Marmite and it is a vast improvement over stock). This little tidbit is optimized by certain developers for smoother/greater performance and is what gives you better control over what your processor (and gpu in some cases) can do. Many custom rom developers will use these kernels instead of the stock one.

    As always, make Nandroid back-ups before you do anything so if something goes wrong you can just restore your phone back to its previous state, of which I have to do a couple times =D

      If only uou could freeze and delete apps with something like Titanium Backup right?


    • monsterduc1000

      @John: Sure you could do that, but it’s not just apps that CM adds. A lot of the stuff that CM puts into their rom is directly written into the code. Things that if removed could cause issues with the rom running properly.

      Maybe you should do some research before you shoot your mouth off.

  • It’s all about the Nexus!

    I’ll be slapping on my Nexus S for sure!

    CM10 made a drastic improvement to my Galaxy S2X, very happy with it. I love how polished the CM framework is getting, and how they are bringing custom ROMs “mainstream”. They do a great job of ensuring a smooth process for even avereage joe’s, which is great!

      I just rooted and installed CM10 on my S2X, great improvement over the telus bloatware!
