CyanogenMod fans will be delighted to learn that the team has finally reintroduced M-Series builds for version 10.1 of its AOSP-based custom ROM. Development of M-Builds were temporarily suspended as the team worked on CyanogenMod 10.1, the Android 4.2 base which we’ve all been waiting for.
The CyaogenMod team classifies an M-Series build as a build that is “mostly stable,” so if you wanted an early taste of CyanogenMod 10.1 that’s good enough to be your daily driver then this is what you’re looking for. They aren’t completely stable, but any bugs you find should be minimal.
Those who own the Samsung Captivate, Nexus S/4G, USA Galaxy S3 devices, Samsung Galaxy S, Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus (all variants), Nexus 4, Nexus 10, ODroid U2 and any models of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 or 10.0 can enjoy these builds as early as today. More builds are being worked on right now so if you don’t own any of these devices then you’ll have to stick to the nightlies until they’re ready.
As usual, you can find the downloads on CyanogenMod’s mirror site so be sure to grab your download. Also, keep it in the back of your mind that your device is still your own responsibility — should the result of your retooling be its transformation into a sentient being then you, and you alone, will have to deal with the robot rebellion. I’ll get Will Smith on the horn if you need some advice.
