It’s arguably the world’s most popular Android operating system. Sure, it might be a customised ROM but the work the CyanogenMod team puts into the OS ensures its also often more stable than the official ROMs its users replace.
CyanogenMod 10.1 has been in ‘release candidate’ mode for some time but today, the training wheels come off and it finally goes into ‘Stable’ release mode.
It’s built on the 4.2.2 version of Google’s Android Open-Source Project (AOSP) build, which basically means it starts with a cleanskin Android OS, from which, the CyanogenMod team build up their own distinct flavour for each smartphone and device the team decides to support.
The interesting news from CyanogenMod is that CM10.1 Stable Release will not include Tegra 2-powered devices and, somewhat controversially, many Samsung Exynos-powered devices. The team has said it will provide a ‘status report’ for these devices later in the week.
According to a CyanogenMod blog post, the list of devices supported will be the same as those that received a Release Candidate.
The team has also announced that it is working on a new Privacy Guard feature that was merged into the nightly builds today.
