Thoughts on CM10.1

Posted Dec 20, 2012 at 12:29 pm in Threads > Opinions

so what do you guys think of the recently released nightlies of CM10.1?

  • JonJJon

    They look very nice.

    Haven’t tried it myself (last version I tried was CM9) but I will eventually put CM on my GS3 once I’ve had it stock for a while :)

    I don’t like that I can’t bring down the pull down all the way on a tablet, other than that, I love it! Very smooth on my galaxy tab 10.1 I/O edition.

    • JonJJon

      That’s just what Android 4.2 has brought in not CM specifically, and I agree; why they decided to allow infinite pulling down of the notification panel is a little pointless in my opinion and actually feels less polished and more gimmicky.

      • http://genesischess.com/ MJM128

        Yeah, I know that it’s not particularly a 10.1 feature more so a 4.2 android thing. Regardless, I just hope CM changes that one thing, I love the notification panel though! It looks great, and I got use to the phone/tablet mesh layout pretty fast. CM10.1 is actually running quite well on my device.

    Put the nightly on my Sprint Galaxy S3. So far running smoothly (3 days now) no issues yet. The one thing I miss from the stock ROM is the ability to play videos, music and show pictures through the stock gallery, music, and video apps via dlna.

    Looking for a good replacement for today.

    For me it is really a small negative. I think there are more positive than negatives but then I love to tweak things, then wait a minute, and tweak again. LOL

      Interesting. I have the TMO version running CM 10 and was hesitant to move to 10.1. Is that the only issue so far. I thought there were more that made it hard to use as a daily driver. Things like bluetooth and wifi issues.

      • jonstle

        I have been using WiFi for 2 days with no issues. Bluetooth only a few times. Tomorrow I will be using Bluetooth all day so I can give a report of my success or failure.

        • jonstle

          Used Bluetooth all day today with no problems! The one thing I need to do is make it so when I push the button my earpiece it opens google now voice actions and not the older voice dialing.

          • gmaninvan

            I really don’t know why that voice dialer app is even still there! It is super annoying that you can’t get voice actions or google now to work with a bluetooth headset due to the automatic rerouting to the voice dialer app on activation of the bluetooth headsets button!

    I really miss integrated DLNA in the gallery app, has anyone found a suitable replacement app, most of them seem to be specific to music or video, where I would want pictures and video. The integration of dlna on the HTC gallery app seamless and works really well. I would pay to have this available in CM.

    I love CM10.1 on my HTC Desire Z (a.k.a. Tmo G2). Developer Flinny and the Andromadus team did a really nice job porting it. CM10.1 runs great on a 2.5 year old device! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2031678

  • sandy105

    i like the cm 10.1 or rather the 4.2 features -lockscreen widgets ,lockscreen camera,quick settings .and it is smooth ..

    and yes wifi works well,but bluetooth i didnt try..

  • Zach

    How long did it take to finish reboot on the Galaxy S3?

  • LukeT32

    Running 1.8.13 Nightly on my GNex.

  • Diabsoud

    Have it on my Galaxy S2…works so smoothly…love it!!

  • Alec Waddelow

    Runs smoothly on my S2

  • rob

    I flashed cm10.1 m1 2 days ago and I have to say it’s by far the best ROM out there especially when combined with Franco kernel and nova launcher

  • shane

    Use BUBBLE UPNP app from play store for awesome DLNA streaming etc

  • CJ LaFleur

    has anyone tried out the new updates since Android 4.2 came out (still CM 10.1). i saw the new font on the lock screen and the clock and immediately flashed back to an older nightly. I really hated the design and the way the notification bar had changed. i like having swype, but swiftkey is just as good or better. are any of you liking any of the recent release candidates?

    • LukeT32

      I flash a few times a week.

      I thought the new lock screen font was a Google thing… Maybe not though.

    I’ve been really enjoying CM 10.1 on my Galaxy Nexus but I just switched to Paranoid Android and I’m loving it.

    • CJ LaFleur

      How is Paranoid Android different/better?

      • lou2cool88

        You’re able to use a tablet hybrid experience so you get more screen real estate because the area at the bottom of the screen where the home/back/multitask buttons is smaller. Plus, you can choose whether you want the tablet version of an app or a phone version. It’s just more customizable in those regards.

        • CJ LaFleur

          nice. i don’t use soft buttons on my GS3 because i prefer the physical buttons. that in itself saves screen real estate. i don’t think i’m looking for my phone to be a tablet, unless i was using the note 2 or the Galaxy Mega lol
