With all of the talk of Jelly Bean coming out of Google I/O, many people are still wondering one thing: “what’s up with CM9?” That would be a very good question considering we don’t even have a stable build of the Android 4.0-based ROM yet and we look to be on the verge of a Jelly Bean 4.1 code dump.
Fear not, says the blue-shaded team: pretty much any device that is receiving CM9 will be in line for CM10. The team is still working to bring CM9 out first, though. Once they have stable builds across the board they’ll be switching focuses to CM10. The jump from CM9 to CM10 might not be a lengthy one, either.
The reason CM9 took so long to be released is because the ROM had to be reworked from the ground up due to the huge change going from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich. Going from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean should be a bit less tricky so it’s natural to expect a shorter time of completion.
To recap, the Jelly Bean version of CyanogenMod will be modeled CM10, it shouldn’t take the team long to go from CyanogenMod 9 to CyanogenMod 10, but they won’t be doing that until CyanogenMod 9 is complete (which is quite close as we’re on release candidates these days).
