CyanogenMod 10 is still cooking, and heck, CM9 isn't even fully baked for all devices yet. That hasn't stopped Steve Kondik, aka the guy who puts the Cyanogen in CyanogenMod, from posting preview builds of CM10 over on XDA for the AT&T and T-Mobile Galaxy S III variants. Plus, a third preview build being posted for the Sprint version by another developer. Keep in mind, of course, that "preview build" translates into "absolutely nothing is guaranteed to work." It is exciting, nonetheless.

The threads go out of their way to point out that CM10 isn't even close to being ready to ship and that just about everything that could go wrong probably will. But if you clicked on a link that said "preview build" and are seriously considering flashing it, that doesn't scare you off, now does it? You can grab the ROMs from the source links below if you're feeling bold.

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

    Fucking Verizon..

        When they get LTE in my area I will

        • fixxmyhead

          seriously do u really need LTE? what about HSPA+ 42?

          • ProductFRED

            Only T-Mobile has 42Mbps HSPA+. The rest tops off at 21Mbps, which is still hella fast and LTE territory. You don't need LTE on a phone though, I agree.

            As someone with 4G, yes, you do. I've had LTE since March of last year, when I got my Thunderbolt, and when I drop down to 3G in areas that don't have LTE, I die a little. It's so. slow. Like dial-up slow.

            Also, anyone actually thinking about heading to AT&T from Verizon is, quite possibly, retarded. Terrible service, terrible customer service. About the only thing better about AT&T is that they don't have an encrypted/signed bootloader for their SGS3.

            So then Verizon should work on fixing their 3G network. I'm on Straight Talk AT&T with my international Galaxy S III and I still manage to crank out 2-3 Mbps on average, which is fast enough for me. Don't talk to me about slow; I just switched from Sprint. Their 3G here in NYC topped off at like 100 kbps on a good day.

    GSM?

  • don

    You're welcome for the tip

  • VerizonDoesSuck

    I thought Verizon had its bootloader circumvented already?

    • ProductFRED

      No, some partitions were unencrypted allowing for root access, however any new iteration of Android requiring a different kernel will not run. However, since the recovery partition is not encrypted, some devs have experimented with flashing a kernel into that partition, but the downside is you'll need to do the recovery button combination every time you boot the phone, and you'll lose recovery (you'll need to ODIN it back on).

    I have CM10 on Gnex and it is the most stable and feature-rich JB ROM available

    Well my s3, 4g from At&t slow it keep fading in and out droping calls then some times my phone don't even ring when I get a incoming calls, I look up and I got a miss call on my phone. Some times I think I made a mistake when I went to AT&T, the phone looks nice but that don't count, my down. Load be slow at time hard to get a signal when I am at home man if I was not on a two year contract with them I would go back to sprint.
