Tonight, when everyone else is sleeping, the folks over at CyanogenMod are hard at work, as always. The team just announced a brand new addition to the slew of CM releases: M-Series. From now on (provided the community approves), the team will begin rolling out builds that are "a bit more stable" at the beginning of every month. Prior to this initial release of CM10-M1, the group did a "soft freeze of the codebase" in an attempt to stabilize the builds, so these should be more reliable than your average release.

Here's the list of devices that builds are currently available for:


  • Galaxy Nexus GSM (maguro)
  • Galaxy Nexus VZW (toro)
  • Galaxy Nexus Sprint (toroplus)
  • Galaxy S2 GT-I9100G (i9100g)
  • Galaxy S (galaxysmtd)
  • Galaxy S B (galaxysbmtd)
  • Captivate (captivatemtd)
  • Galaxy S3 Sprint (d2spr)
  • Galaxy S3 VZW (d2vzw)
  • Galaxy S3 AT&T (d2att)
  • Galaxy S3 TMO (d2tmo)
  • Galaxy S3 US Cellular (d2usc)
  • Nexus S (crespo)
  • Nexus S 4G (crespo4g)
  • Galaxy Note AT&T (quincyatt)
  • Google Nexus 7 (grouper)
  • Sony Xperia Acro S (hikari)
  • Sony Xperia S (nozomi)

As always, nightlies will continue to be available, but for the slightly less adventurous among you, this effort should provide a healthy middle ground between bleeding edge, and waiting on stable RCs for your device. It will also help casual users keep a frame of reference for the progression of everyone's favorite ROM. If you'd like to get in on the action, you can download the M1 builds here.

So, what do you think? Is this is a good move? Or would you rather just stick to nightlies, release candidates, and regular stable releases? As we said before, the CM team is going to decide whether to continue the M-Series project based on community feedback, so feel free to weigh in both here and on the CyanogenMod forums.
