Great news for those that love to tweak their Android device’s software with custom ROMs — the CyanogenMod team have officially announced — via their newly redesigned site — that they’re all set to begin pushing their latest CM 10.1.0 general release to their servers tonight (meaning, any minute now). As far as the lucky recipients go, CyanogenMod mentions that if your device has already received a recent RC build (release candidate), you can expect CM 10.10 for your device. Well, aside from Android devices powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 or Samsung Exynos processors. Sorry, guys. It looks like those are being left out.
Looking ahead, you can expect CyanogenMod team plan to continue with their current M-release cycle, sprinkling experimental new features into their nightlies like their recently announced Privacy Guard feature that allows users to protect their privacy from apps by spoofing data on their device. That, and the quick settings camera (see video above), complete with live preview tile. Just when you thought Android couldn’t get any better, CM happens. Great work, guys!
