Samsung Galaxy S3 on Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T get preview builds of CyanogenMod 10


Who knew that the first devices to get a taste of CyanogenMod 10 would be devices that didn’t get CyanogenMod 9? Steve Kondik, the famed developer responsible for the CM craze, has published preview builds of the Jelly Bean-infused custom ROM for the AT&T and T-Mobile versions of the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Another developer has posted a preview build for the Sprint version of the device. Of course,Verizon’s version is nowhere to be found: a locked and encrypted bootloader means there will be no official development of CyanogenMod (though the developer edition may get some love once it’s available). As these are preview builds you are responsible for anything that happens to your device.

Not everything’s going to work right. In fact, many things are likely to be broken or wonky. A preview is exactly what it sounds like: a tool to let you see what the future will bring before it arrives. Go ahead and check the three XDA threads in the source link for each respective version. [T-Mobile, AT&T, SprintThanks to everyone who sent this in!]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Running it now on my i747 with my camera fix, and it is smooooth. I’m using it as a daily driver for sure.

  2. We have a version of CM10 loaded and working on the Nook Tablet albit it does have issues as the devs are still hard at working on getting the 3.x kernel up and running on our device. Thread for CM10 can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1773362

    1. Not sure what the Nook Color has too do with this article, but uh, good for you?

      1. Probably because the article is also about previews of cm10 which apparently the Nook color also has.

        1. This is the Nook Tablet not the older device which is the Nook color which is a single core device so people please stop confusing the 2

  3. I wonder if there will be a build for the C Spire version of this phone.

  4. All I have to say is.. screw you Verizon

    1. I (a former Verizon customer) think this is a good thing. Every story that highlights the disadvantages of owning a Verizon-branded device or being a Verizon customer will serve to wake Verizon customers from their stooper, hopefully decreasing device sales and increasing churn. Only then will Verizon pay any attention to what customers want.

  5. Quentyn, I am pretty sure you are wrong about the Verizon version not getting official CM support. CVPCS has already posted (actually did it on G+ under the CM account) he has created a method to get the VZW version to boot CM with a custom kernel using kexec (I know it isn’t ideal). His method boots it automatically without the user having to initiate it separately. I am pretty sure they plan to fully support it using this method for now. That said, data does not work at the moment, even though voice and sms do. They are looking into it.

    I know this is for CM9, but I’d assume CM10 would work the same way.


  6. Thanks a lot Verizon! >:(

  7. Running it on my Sprint Galaxy S3 And it runs nearly flawless. the only REAL issue is with the camera that close unexpectedly sometime but other than that can definitely be ran as a daily driver.

  8. Don’t go too far… the Sprint S3 SUCKS this is a great phone but without 4G LTE? you may as well get a prepaid…. SUCKS
