The CyanogenMod team has announced the availability of a new set of M-series builds for their users, this time for the CM10.1 version of their custom software, which is based on the latest flavor of Google’s Android operating system.The team started to release monthly updates for their custom ROMs as M-series builds for the CM10 flavor of the software, but it suspended them as soon as the work on CM10.1 started.
Now, the first official M-series release of CyanogenMod 10.1 is available for download, bringing along the Jelly Bean platform to a multitude of devices.
“Today we are doing our first M build for 10.1, based on Jelly Bean MR1. More devices are being worked on, and are available as nightly builds for the time being,” the CyanogenMod team has announced.
These builds are said to be mostly stable, which makes them a good option for daily use, though there might still be a series of issues affecting users’ experience with them.
At the moment, the CM10.1 M builds are available for devices such as Samsung Captivate, Samsung Nexus S (+4G), Samsung Galaxy S3 USA models (D2), Samsung Galaxy S (galaxysmtd/galaxysbmtd), Google Nexus 7, Google Galaxy Nexus (all variants), Google Nexus 4 and Google Nexus 10.
Furthermore, the team announced that ODroid, Samsung P3100, P3110 and Samsung P5100, P5110 were also supported in the new builds.
The CM team is currently working on finalizing their product, yet they did not unveil a specific release date for the final, stable CyanogenMod 10.1.
