CyanogenMod 10.1 Milestone 1 available for select devices

CyanogenMod Generic

When it comes to alternative software for your Android device, CyanogenMod is still the cream of the crop. Over the weekend, the first semi-stable builds of CyanogenMod 10.1 were made available for select devices, giving us an idea of just how far CyanogenMod 10.1 is into development.

With the release of CyanogenMod 10.1 Milestone 1, we can see that development on CM 10.1 is progressing nicely. Depending on how well the initial batch of “M-Series” releases go, a stable build could be right around the corner. CyanogenMod is generally released in four stages, with Milestones intended to be mid-development stable builds. The first M-Series release of CM 10.1 is available for the Nexus 4, 7, 10 and S, as well as the Galaxy Nexus and a handful of other Samsung devices.

If you’re not familiar with CyanogenMod, CyanogenMod 10.1 is based on the latest version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.2.1. It’s built using only the source code for Android, and features a handful of nonintrusive customization and optimization options giving users full control over their device.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on the progress of CyanogenMod 10.1. If you’re interested in seeing if your device has a CyanogenMod builds of its own, visit get.cm. For those of you already in the know, what ROM are you running?

    I’ve been using the M1 on my Nexus 4 for a while and it’s been very solid/stable. I’ve traditionally been an AOKP guy and this is really the first time I’ve had CM on my Nexus 4, so it’s been fun discovering some of the new features of CM since I last tried it.

    I specifically like their SMS Quick Reply functionality. I also appreciate the polishedness they have with their Navigation Bar customization tool where you actually drag your NavBar buttons around on your NavBar.

    One thing that I’m *really* missing that AOKP has is the cursor arrows when the soft keyboard is up. CM allows you to use your volume rocker for this but AOKP’s implementation is MUCH more natural and obvious.

    Also, I’m trying to give Trebuchet a chance. I’m fighting hard my desires to install Nova Launcher. So far, I’m still using Trebuchet but it just feels so very limiting in allowing me to customize my phone’s appearance and functionality. We’ll see…

    All in all, this is a good build! If you’re like me and have only been running AOKP or something else, give this a shot. Even if it’s not what you keep, it’s definitely worth exploring every now and then. And this is a good build!

    Using an XDA CyanogenMod 10 Jellybean 4.1.2 ‘Kang’ from Bruce2728 on my HTC Sensation. Maybe when the official CM team gets to a stable release, I’ll switch to CM. Currently there is only a nightly over there, with a lot more stuff broken.

    • Justin

      I have HTC Sensation and found that if you download the cm10 nighltly directly from CM and don’t use bruce kang stability is good enough for daily driver. Also, recommend being S-OFF, make need to do wire trick (scary but it works), use 4EXT recovery, keep busybox updated and use GetRIL to keep radio updated. A lot, but doing so has kept me from buying a new phone for quite a while.

    “I’m fighting hard my desires to install Nova Launcher. ”

    Give in!

    There’s nothing wrong with using a different launcher. I fee like Trebuchet is a nice improvement to the stock launcher, but there’s nothing “un-cyanogenmod” about ditching it. I have been running CM (primarily) on my devices for nearly three years (!) and I rarely use the “stock” CM launcher (although it looks like a good one!), I just prefer the extra options that I get through Apex. This is what CM is about, IMO: don’t load the rom down with frivolous crap, and let the users add what they want. themselves onto a fast, capable build of AOSP. I don’t know how well it’s integrated, but you could probably flash the nav-bar additions you miss from AOKP onto CM.

    Protip: if you switch to Nova, make it a system app (easily done with TiBu) and then remove/freeze Trebuchet – and obviously, make a nandroid first. It probably makes very little difference, but I don’t like to have two launchers in memory.

  • bkbkjbb

    Now if they could just fix the extremely low video recording volume on the S3 id use it as my daily. Until then, i dont even think about CM.

  • LukeT32

    I have been using the Nightlies since May on my GNex.

    I love CM10, they say the Nightlies are not stable enough for daily use, but I have very little issues with them.

    The build in updater is glorious too!!

    • Agret

      On my Galaxy Nexus i’ve been using JellyBam, a hybrid ROM combing the features of AOKP, Cyanogenmod & Paranoid Android into one. It’s pretty cool. If you are using CM nightly I suggest you go on market and download CyanDelta, it makes updating a lot faster as the download size is heaps heaps smaller (latest update I did on my tablet was 8mb) and it auto flashes the new ROM when you click “Install” =)

  • CTown

    Thanks to CyanogenMod’s developers and especially Pawit, the original Galaxy S can not only run the latest version of Android but run it like a boss. It’s amazing and how well Android runs on devices from three years ago (of course those old phones have had to be of flagship quality when they were released).

  • donger

    Nice, will wait for stable release.

  • Nathan D.

    I want one of those stable build for the sensation or at least cm10 :-( I guess I’ll wait longer then

    • Nathan D.

      I most add though, that they are great ROM makers, and I’m currently using one of their now and it can hold me out until the update comes.

  • Matthew Galo

    Bluetooth A2DP still broken. In AOKP, too.

  • SickPuP

    CM10.1 for i777 Nightly Build 1-21-2013 completely broke the SD mounting. I’d say it still needs a little work.

    • Tico4674

      After convincing a friend to let me root and upgrade his i777, I flashed cm10.1 and it’s definitely not there yet. I flashed a kanged version of cm10 and completely revitalized his phone. It was as if he had traded his phone for a newer, faster phone. His phone is running almost as smooth as my S3. I’ve have been running 10.1 for a while now with very few issues.

  • forrest cate

    Aosp 4.2.1 JOP40D from muzzy. Seems to have full functionality. Stable. Tried 10.1 nightly but missed a few things it still doesn’t have.

  • masterpfa

    Very tempting.
    This may be one I consider for my Galaxy Nexus as \i have always liked CM ROMS

  • hurracayne

    I been using CM10 on my myt4g
    I have the occasional sim restart and text issue

  • OnIn2

    Can someone explain the difference between

    “handful of nonintrusive customization and optimization options”

    and

    Carrier bloatware ?

    • Steve Barry

      Carrier Bloatware = apps that constantly run and cannot be removed unless rooted

      NICOO = A truckload of options to fully customize your device as you see fit, without a bunch of crap running the background.

  • amgala

    The latest CM10.1 nightlies have been rock solid stable and FAST! Give it a try

  • http://ArtisticAbode.com BetterWithRoot

    Man, I wish CM would come to the Droid DNA. Right now I am rocking Hatka’s ROM. I think I will be flashing over the new Venom ROM. It has a bunch of customization. I am running Apex over the top of Sense. It’s a deSensed rom…but you all know how that goes; it’s still not AOSP.

  • tpberserk

    Hi guys please someone help me here. I’m having a big problem… maybe small for someone else.
    Yesterday I upgraded from CM 10 stable to 10.1 M1 from recovery without wiping anything.
    It looked perfect till now, I was upgrading an app on PlayStore when it crashed and started to reboot.
    It’s doing it all the time, I removed the battery, the sim, the extcard and it does the same thing all the time.

    What can I do now? Flash again the 10.1? Wipe?
    Thanks in advance

    • http://ArtisticAbode.com BetterWithRoot

      i would boot into your recovery and see if you can’t restore your last backup. If you don’t have one made (oops), then I would re-flash; making sure to do it clean and not “dirty”. This is my usual path if I find myself in a boot loop.

      Which phone are you using? From the description of “I removed the battery, the sim, the extcard and it does the same thing all the time.” It kinda sounds like an S3. I know Samsung has ways with either Odin or Kies to help unbrick a phone. I don’t have Samsung device, this is just what i’ve processed from my reading.

      I would recommend searching XDA for a fix as well. Explain what you did in detail. Someone there should be able to assist you.

      Good Luck!

  • jamal adam

    I am currently using CM 10.1 from yesterdays nightly. I guess I’ll check out the M1 tonight and see how it is on my Nexus 7.

  • jonstle

    Love what those guys are doing.

  • Balaram Vineeth Venugopal .P

    I’ve been using cynogenmod since version 7.2 and some thing that I did not approve of is the customization options coming down from cm9 onwards. The earlier versions had option to move the status bar to the bottom of the screen and such features that are missing now.

  • Diabsoud

    Been using nightly CM 10.1 on my GS2 with no problems. Experienced a great performance increase with my phone…much more responsive to touch and execution. Wish they would improve Apollo tho.
