CyanogenMod 10.2 nightlies head to Verizon’s LG G2

lg-g2-featured-LARGE

Waiting for CyanogenMod to head to the Verizon variant of the LG G2? Well, you’re in luck — it’s happening! The current files going up on CyanogenMod’s mirror are nightlies, though, which is something you might not want to mess with if you aren’t willing to put up with possible bugs here and there. The 208 megabyte download can be flashed to any rooted, bootloader-unlocked device with a custom recovery.

Of course, whether you should sacrifice some of the G2′s most unique features to get a taste of one of the most popular ROMs around is a decision you’ll have to make on your own. If things like LG KnockOn, Q-Slide and the SlideAside user interface are important to you, know that you will lose these things as a result of flashing an AOSP-based ROM.

That said, if you’re comfortable with going through with this whole thing, you can find the download over at Get.CM. Less adventurous souls might prefer to wait until beta, milestone or stable releases are made available, but as with any CyanogenMod release — there’s no ETA on the OTA.

    You know you have a good UI when I don’t mind using it over stock.

    The features in the LG G2 look real nice. I need to go read reviews about the “knock-on” feature. I’m afraid that it would turn on accidentally. Though I’m sure it uses the proxy sensors for that.

    • Your MeMa in my pants

      doesn’t turn on accidentally. Haven’t had any issues with it yet. I’d wait for CM on the G2 for awhile. I doubt all of the features are active, including knock, ir blaster and many more.

      • No_Nickname90

        Have you thought about looking for a ROM that’s trimmed down to seem like stock? That way you can keep your features.

          There is a clean ROM that removes bloat but that’s all that I have seen.

          • Droid_Junky

            I started with Clean Rom. Moved to Malladus because of all the updates. LG apps have been moved to its own zip so you can choose which ones to keep. He also decluttered the notification icons and mods to the nav bar.

      I got the G2 to replace my Galaxy Nexus and have not looked back since. The phone does not turn on while in your pocket and I’ve been getting used to the back buttons. The back buttons have certainly helped with taking pictures. I do miss stock android, but I will admit LG came through with some nice features, especially with the knock on feature. I’m also looking forward to seeing what CM brings to the table. G2 was a great buy.

      • No_Nickname90

        This is the stuff that’s scaring me. I really want to get the HTC One Max just because I got used to my HTC One, but this LG G2 is showing so much potential.

        I can’t decided. =.=

        • Droid_Junky

          I’ve had the phone for about two weeks and it is great. Go check out some of the forums and you won’t find many complaints. Super smooth and fast. LG features work great and battery life easily survives a day and a half with use. having CM10 is great but I don’t see it being an improvement over stock.

          • No_Nickname90

            I guess I’ll have to say goodbye to those speakers. Oh man. And that was my buying point on the HTC One.

            Though, that flip case on the LG G2 that shows the screen is pretty cool. =.3

          • Droid_Junky

            I haven’t used the One but do have a Nexus 10 and this phone easily outperforms it. Go search for a topic called “lg g2 delightful discoveries” over at XDA and you will probably be convinced.

  • Bryan Mordt

    This would be so nice to have on the G2. It’s such a great ROM.

    • Your MeMa in my pants

      UI works perfectly fine as is. The ROM is worthless right now as all of the phones features aren’t active with the current release. I’d wait until LG says whether or not the G2 will have 4.4 and beyond before delving into CM (a 4.4 release of course).

      • Bryan Mordt

        As soon as they have a stable build I’m in.

  • blest

    I honestly didn’t know Verizon had the G2. With no plans on losing my unlimited, I forgot all about upgrades.

    But to be honest… After all G2x… I doubt I could trust LG again.

  • Nate595

    The only feature CM needs to bring over for the G2 is knock on, such a valuable feature with the power button being on the back.

  • dreadnatty08

    Rooted, removed bloat. Really like certain stock things like the camera UI and knock on/off. Not sure CM can provide that. Going to wait until then.

  • rampage1979

    I’ve had the G2 for 2weeks and love it sooooooo many built in customizations like lockscreen animations, home screen animations, the ability to change your icons and also the size of the icons, ability to pinch out on homestretch to see just your wallpaper, ability to pinch in on the messaging app to zoom in and enlarge text I’m mean it’s like having nova or apex launcher with all the customizations the only thing missing are icon themes, also LG allows you to select widgets from the app drawer when using other home launchers:-)There are so many features I love about this phone but definitely the battery is the star I went 36hrs of use before needing to charge,

  • Maydo

    This is a first phone I don’t really care about custom rooms at all. It is running like no phone before. Love the knocking on the screen. I don’t use power button at all.

    LG G2 is very good. But plastic phones is not perfect. (but it’s more beautiful than S4 BUT “again” it’s cheap plastic). Create something perfect e.g. Htc One design. Htc one design is amazing, but htc is crap. Anyway this is good start for LG. I will buy it.
