The CyanogenMOD team has been feverishly improving and perfecting its Android 4.2.2 version, CM10.1, for months now, and finally feels it has reached a point of stability to deserve the Release Candidate moniker. Considering the next version of Android is expected to be announced next week at Google I/O, this should come as no surprise, but it’s great to see software with stability you can take to the bank.
Compatible devices range from the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S to the various North American builds of the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note. There are a few tablets and some uncommon devices thrown in there — you’ll have to dig through the database to find whether your device is compatible based on code name — but most of the devices are at least six months old at this point.
If you’re running a custom ROM like CyanogenMOD 10.1, you’ll likely know you have to hit up get.cm for more details. So get on it!
