CyanogenMod 10 is shaping up to be the best version yet as more and more unique features are added everyday. More news came from the project’s Google+ page today, and it’s a doozie — CyanogenMod now has its own file manager!

Simply dubbed “CM File Manager,” the app takes advantage of the Holo UI framework featured in Android 3.0+ devices and was designed with root capabilities in mind. It’s fully functional as an everyday file manager, but has that extra level of access most root users tend to need when dealing with system files. 

The CM team says it doesn’t like incorporating anything into its ROM unless it’s seamless in its implementation, intuitive in usage and functional for a large group of users. From the early look of things I’d say this file manager hits on all those points.

You’ll be able to find these in the latest nightlies from now on as the app has already been merged into the source for the project. It doesn’t look like the file manager will be available outside of the ROM unless someone extracts the APK, but we suspect that will be no hard task. Take a quick look above and be sure to look forward to it if you’re a nightly person!
