In case you haven’t been keeping up with the CyanogenMod team (by following their blog or Google+ account), the team has released CyanogenMod 10.1.0 stable for a plethora of devices! Nearly all of the devices which got release candidates and milestone releases have gotten a stable version, so if your device fell under that category you’ll want to check Get.CM for your download.
Unfortunately, one big group of users is being left out of the fun. Specifically, those with phones based on Exynos 4 are being told that builds for that suite of devices will remain at nightly status indefinitely. The reason given by the CyanogenMod team was due to the fact that the platform is proving to be more difficult to work with than others, and that they wouldn’t feel comfortable with even a release candidate at this point.
The team won’t give up on the platform, noting that those with Exynos 4 — namely, Verizon and Sprint users with the Galaxy Note 2, some Galaxy S2 devices, and others — are among their biggest crowd of users. Unfortunately, such determination is not promised to deliver a stable result in the long run.
That said, the team says feel free to continue to download the nightlies as they keep trying to address the issues they have been faced with, but don’t expect any bug reports to be accepted. If you’re fine with that, be sure to find your nightly download at Get.CM. For the rest of you able to get on a stable release: enjoy!
