CyanogenMod 10.2 nightlies come to Moto X, Sony Xperia Z Ultra



More folks will soon be able to get in on the CyanogenMod fun on some of the latest smartphones available. The ROM developers have made nightlies available for both the Motorola Moto X (certain unlocked versions, anyway) and Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra.

This means you can get flashable builds on an almost-daily basis, giving you an early crack at the CyanogenMod experience before it goes full stable for your device. That said, you should know that flashing nightlies comes with a risk.

For starters, nothing is promised to be stable. You’re literally on the cutting edge of development, so new features may come and go, and things might not work as well as they should. You might run into a force close here and there. Your phone might even explode (as unlikely as that is).

Throughout it all, though, it’s important to remember just one thing — no one is responsible for what happens to your phone but you. Take heed to that warning, and if you decide you want to take the risk you can head to the CyanogenMod mirror to download the necessary files for either of these phones. Get to it!

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. I don’t understand why so much advertising of CM, compared with stock it ever has something not working and consumes more battery, in one word is pure crap.

    1. run it on a well supported device like a nexus or a flagship and you won’t feel the same way. Its super stable on my verizon galaxy nexus.

      1. In Galaxy S4, S3 and S2 has tons of problems, battery drain, etc, for
        the new LG G2 the same story. When I check the XDA forum of Nexus 4 you
        find people that write “wonderful ROM, fast, etc” and when you read the
        posts you find issues with WIFI, deadlocks, battery, whatever…. For
        what I see is not comparable with stock and the problems you get are
        much worse than the advantage, the idea of the ROM is great if it works
        better than stock, something I didnt see yet, for not to mention that the custom kernels I saw (and tested), make the situation even worse.

  2. Surprised to see this on my Z Ultra. I might have to give this a try at some point.
