Android Central

If you’ve been waiting patiently to get your hands on experimental Jelly Bean-based ROM for your phone, today could be your lucky day. The team behind popular custom firmware CyanogenMod has opened the floodgates and started churning out CM10 nightly builds for some supported devices.

Nightly builds are highly experimental, probably unstable and likely not suited to being used as a daily driver. However they do give owners of supported phones the chance to try out near-vanilla Android 4.1 Jelly Bean months before their official update will drop, in addition to introducing some helpful software tweaks from the CM team.

Notable devices now receiving CyanogenMod 10 nightlies include, but are not limited to --

  • The US SGS3 variants
  • The Galaxy Nexus variants
  • The Nexus S varaints
  • The Nexus 7
  • The Transformer and Transformer Prime
  • The SGS1 variants (Vibrant, Captivate, International, and i9000b)
  • The SGS2 i9100g
  • P3 and P5 tablets (Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1)

Other devices are getting nightlies too, so to see if your phone or tablet is supported, check the download link below. Kudos to the entire team of CM maintainers for bringing a taste of Jelly Bean to dozens of devices this morning!

im looking through this, and trying to find the nexus 7, but dont see it
does the 7 have a cool nickname from CM? if so which one is it?

SounderBruce says:

The Nexus 7 is known as "grouper" for CyanogenMod.

dmmarck says:

As the above said, it's named grouper. There has been a thread started in the Nexus 7 forums with the information you'll need.

I would wait before flashing this first build on the Nexus 7. It won't boot. I tried it twice, multiple users over at XDA had the same issue. I have not seen any success story yet. Hopefully they get a bootable build up soon.

Doan says:

Flashing on VZW GSIII now.

.. and holy hell has recovery, kernel, and ROM flashing become so much simpler than the last three devices I did this on.

For the sprint version.the cm10 preview was stable and good enough as a daily driver

Anything broken that's very noticeable for you?

I'm glad I've been on the Samsung train since the captivate. i can always count on one of my devices getting the latest cm ROM

randyw says:

Runs fine on my Play Store Gnex.

sxayarath says:

Where is the list of maintainers for Cm10 devices?

capt4chris says:

It may be in the source link. I'm unable to view it since I'm not on Google+. Wish this was released on the Evo 4G LTE!

jjrudey says:

With toro when I first booted up, the Play Store wouldn't download anything. But a reboot fixed it. Although I had to manually restore all my apps.

Immolate says:

Installing on my Verizon Wireless GS3 running Synergy 1.7 with boot loader unlocked using Adam's Casual.

Did a factory wipe + cache + dalvick.

Boot animation still says CM9.

Forgot to download GAPPS

Been using it now for a while on a conference call and all is well.

ab304945 says:

Ya they haven't changed the boot animation yet

That is great ROM build base on CM10

Cheers, I'm using that ROM also.

All hail sgs1 international and its variants.

Orbiting234 says:

Aw, no Epic 4G love while the rest of the SGS1 versions get it? ; ;

igeekman says:

what is the code name for the samsung galaxy nexus hspa+?

SgtMijo says:

I think it's Maguro.


kkvtribe says:

Doesn't work on Transformer Prime!! Wait for next nightly.

From the forums:
"We discovered a minor issue in the current nightly that means it doesn't boot.
I've fixed it and next nightly should be good to go! Sorry for the trouble."

Did they even test it....? Looking forward to the next nightly, hopefully tonight!

Cubfan says:

Meh. The stock AOSP roms are more mature. I'm sticking with them.
