CM10 pre-releases popping up!

Posted Jul 17, 2012 at 3:41 pm in Threads > Smartphones & Tablets

Lovin' me some Jelly Beans!

This morning, Mr. Steve Kondik himself posted some CM10 previews! They are pre-release quality software and probably have some major bugs in them but this shows where CM10 is at this point. However, they appear to be daily-driver-worthy. I’ve yet to see any obvious problems.

Cyanogen says that these releases are missing Butter but frankly, they’re just as smooth as stock software for me. If you follow the below-posted directions, you’ll end up with a ROM that’s a mix of AOSP and CyanogenMod ROM. By this, there are clearly hints of Cyanogenmod (Apollo, CM stat reporting, non-AOSP launcher, etc.) but there are obvious omissions as well (no advanced settings/toggles/etc. at all). And yes, Google Now is there once you flash Gapps.

*** NOTE: If you flash this software, you risk your phone becoming a brick, you will void your warranty, and your phone will become possessed overnight while you sleep and suck your blood. You have been warned!

If you have a Galaxy S III on AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint, hop on over to this RootzWiki thread to learn more.

    any real plus to running this over the AOSP?

  • tmihai20

    I don’t understand your question? You can either run CM or AOSP. What are you referring to?

  • LukeT32

    Well CM says most of the rom is stock AOSP with very few CM features… So what is the benefit of running this over a stable AOSP?

      The bonus for me is that I have no AOSP ROM to run. Unless an AOSP Jelly Bean ROM has snuck through and I missed it, this is my only JB option.

        I have been running this since the 11th with no issues. Everything works. I am assuming you have a Verizon GNex based on your Verizon and Samsung picks in your profile.

          T-Mobile Galaxy SIII. See the last line of the article – these CM10s are all for Galaxy S III devices, none of which have any AOSP Jelly Bean options that I’m aware of (except maybe int’l).

          Thanks for reminding me to update my profile, though! :-)

            It all makes sense now :) Enjoy the S3…. I have a few friends with them, they upgraded from the S1, but not sure if it is really that big of a jump from the S2. Unless of course you got an LTE version…

    Runs GREAT on the Skyrocket:
    Working: Google Now (No Voice), in-call audio (to come through the earpiece with good volume)

    Not Working: Butter, Camera and YouTube (in landscape)

    CM10 on the tmobile s3 is amazing

  • LukeT32

    Just downloaded CM10 for my Toro Gnex… :) Not sure if it is the kernal or what, but it seems to run better then the AOSP.
