As a Nexus device, the Nexus 4 is sure to get deep support from the development community. We aren’t surprised to learn that he biggest entity in the after market ROM world — CyanogenMod — has officially given the green light for nightlies for the Nexus 4 (mako) to start rolling out.
As suspected, the version of CyanogenMod we’re officially looking at for Android 4.2 is CyanogenMod 10.1, and we imagine it won’t take the team as long as they took to bring us up from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean. The Nexus 10 isn’t quite ready for prime time yet, but the team has confirmed that it would be getting nightlies sometime soon.
In regards to other devices, the CyanogenMod team has reminded everyone that nightlies will still be based on Android 4.1 (CM version 10.0) until they “flip the switch” on Android 4.2 builds for everyone else. We didn’t expect existing devices to be stepped up to Android 4.2 right away anyway, so this news doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
And, as always, there’s no ETA on the OTA — it’ll all come when it’s ready, so be patient and relax, and know that the CyanogenMod team has your back. As for you Nexus 4 owners you can head right here to get the treats you crave (but remember that bugs may exist and things may not work right as nightlies are not intended for everyday use).
