Update: It looks like the TF700 isn't the only device new to the CM10.1 world; nightly builds are also available for the Nexus 7 (grouper) and GSM variant of the Galaxy Nexus (maguro).

The CyanogenMod team has been steadily working on getting Android 4.2 ready for nightly status, with builds already available for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. The newest member of the CM 10.1 family is ASUS' flagship 10" tablet: the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700).

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

The first nightly just hit CM's official download channel, bringing with it all of Android 4.2's goodies. Head here to give it a shot, and, as always, don't forget to grab the latest GApps!

    O_O I assumed this was already happening. I downloaded Paranoid ROM for my TF700 which is based on CM 10.1

      I thought the Paranoid guys weren't going to base it on CM starting on 4.2?

    I could be missing something but why would someone put CM on a Nexus device?

      it adds a lot of extra customisation options. fixes the 4.2.1 quick settings, improves audio quality. it basically looks the same but does more.

        "improves audio quality" - Is that Bluetooth audio, standard audio (speaker/jack), or all audio regardless of path? I'd be very happy if Bluetooth audio during calls is improved, I can barely stand to use a headset during calls with my N4.

        The quick settings fixes are a big deal to a lot of people. CM developers have been posting a lot of stuff on G+ about the improvements they were making. I haven't made the jump to trying it yet, but I'm not far off. I just can't decide if I want to do it on my N4 or N7 (I want to keep one stock, but I want to flash CM onto the other).

          for my galaxy nexus, It's mainly the loudspeaker volume I was referring to, including notifications, it was useless on the stock build.

          I don't really listen to enough music from my phone to comment on the audi jack/bluetooth quality.

          Yes the quick settings are a huge deal, the stock implementation is pretty, but horribly executed, it literally puts an extra step to get to your options than previously. CM10.1 brings some great, and very intuitive toggle customisation to your quick settings.
