CM 10.2 Nightlies Released, Based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

Google has just released Android 4.3 JellyBean with their Nexus. Android is AOSP (Android Open Source Project) so it releases the sources for every release, Google released sources of Android 4.3 and many developers are trying to port 4.3 to their devices, Samsung Galaxy S4 users are chilling because they got this update before the official release.CyanogenMod are very fast in compiling new CyanogenMod ROMs, they made CyanogenMod 10.2 within just 2 days after the release of Android 4.3. One of the developer managed to boot in Nexus 4.

The CM 10.1 update is available for a lot of devices, but we’ll only list some of them here. In order to check if your device is supported, you can check their website.

Supported devices: Samsung Galaxy Tab, Sony Xperia Z, Verizon Galaxy Nexus, Google Nexus 4, Google Nexus 7, Google Nexus 10, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ( T-Mobile, AT&T ), Galaxy Note, Kindle Fire ( both 1st and 2nd gen ), LG Optimus L9, Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4.
If you aren’t sure about this update, we recommend you to use a stable CM 10.1 instead, because it’s much more stable and can be used as a daily driver. Though for those who want to give it a try, we’ll start flashing on our smartphone and make guides for you. You just to be patient, because there are a lot of smartphones and it takes time.

We expect to see a monthly, more stable release, of the CM 10.2 in about a month. That should be a much better and stable version, and you should wait until then.

CyanogenMod has improved the lives of a lot of smartphone owners that have been forgotten by the phone maker. There are a lot of phones that stop receiving official updates too early, so people rely on CyanogenMod to enjoy Google’s new Android versions. Fragmentation is still an issue for Android and, while phone makers seem to be making improvements, updates are still slow and only a small percentage of the Android smartphone owners have the last version. At the moment, Android is at version 4.3 and only 6.5% of users are using the previous version, Android 4.2.
