Owners of the original Samsung Epic 4G — Sprint’s keyboard-enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy S — will be happy to know that the device isn’t dead! Well… it’s probably dead at the hands of Sprint, but you know the development community always has your back. The phone has finally gotten its first nightlies of CyanogenMod 10.1, meaning those who don’t mind flashing a ROM or two can step up to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and partake in exciting new features like lock-screen widgets.
You should know by now that nightlies aren’t always guaranteed to be stable enough to be daily drivers. They’ll work to some degree, and in most cases they don’t pose many problems at all, but there’s always a chance that things won’t be stable. Knowing that, be sure to backup your current setup and make sure you keep a plan B if things don’t go as they should. Head to the CyanogenMod mirror here to get the 158MB download.
