No builds posted yet, but most devices are ready for CyanogenMod 10.2 work to begin

Even those who have never rooted or ROM'd their phones have probably heard of CyanogenMod, the most widely used custom ROM for Android devices. The CyanogenMod software is so popular, that many times builds get ported to phones and tablets that are not officially supported by the CM developers.

If an Android device has enough of a following, and there are developer(s) willing to commit (no pun intended) to maintaining the device in the official CyanogenMod source tree, this device becomes officially supported -- and receives official builds of the CyanogenMod ROM. Official support not only gives owners a warm fuzzy feeling inside, but also less headaches as official builds are usually more stable and have fewer bugs.

CyanogenMod has announced that these eight devices will receive official ROM builds, with more device to come. While some of these have been in the works a while, this will be the first set of official builds for any of them:

  • Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G (apexqtmo)
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 - C Spire (jfltecsp)
  • Motorola Atrix HD (mb886)
  • Motorola Photon Q - GSM (xt897)
  • Motorola Photon Q - CDMA (xt897c)
  • Motorola Droid Razr M (xt907)
  • Motorola Razr HD - GSM (xt925)
  • Motorola Droid Razr HD - CDMA (xt926)

All of these devices, with the exception of the C Spire Galaxy S4, have planned support for the Android 4.3-based CyanogenMod 10.2. Don't expect anything flashable in the next few days (as these things do take time), but owners of the above phones have working versions of one of the best custom ROMs to look forward.

New wave of devices get official CyanogenMod support


Can someone please recommend me the latest stable bug free version of cyanogen mod for my GT-i9300......Thanks in advance :)

I've used several of the nightly builds and not found any problems of note except the camera crashed once and just needed a reboot to get it working again but then that was so fast it didn't make any difference. As always, just do a backup first.

Thanks!!! But that is CM9.1 and i am looking for CM10.1, i've seen a lot of youtube videos about it, but they all have bugs :(

No willing is better. Why waste time on the lower devices (sorry) that only a few people purchased. You can only buy/beg/steal/get donated so many devices

I've been using CM 10.1 on my AT&T S4. It may not have all those fancy gimmicky bells and whistles that have a tendency to unlock your screen and butt dial your entire phone book, but it flies! Almost no bugs even on the nightlies.

I've been "trying" to run CM since CM6 on my Nexus 1. I love it, it's stable and the all the features are really useful. I've had it on my Nexus 1, Galaxy Nexus, and my Nexus 4 (as well as Nexus 7).

My issue is this - Even as recently as the most stable build I have horrible...and I mean HORRIBLE battery life. Like losing 10-20% per hour doing absolutely nothing. And if I use it, I can drain it in like 2.5 hours.

This always pushes me back to just a basic stock ROM. Am I just unlucky or is this just accepted by people who love CM?

And I'm not an APP guy. I don't have ANY 3rd party apps installed other than Pandora and SpeedTest.NET. So I'm sure it's not that draining all my phones over the past years.

Try using SetCPU to clock your cpu to a lower Mhz speed when it's idle. Another thing that you might be experiencing that I did too on my Gnex, after receiving an OTA update, my battery started depleting rapidly...try doing a full wipe and rebuild the CM Rom. If you have Titanium Backup and follow the tutorials you can find online, you'll be able to restore everything back to your phone.

I have a pretty Damn stable CM10.1 Unofficial build right now. We'll see what they can bring...

I love Cyanogen. Been using it on my HTC One since it came out and even though it's nightly it in my opinion is still very stable for daily use. I highly recommend it! I upgrade it every morning with my cup of coffee :).
