cyanogen-mod-10.1

Another day, another round of nightly builds for the upcoming CyanogenMod 10.1. This time, the latest release of the custom ROM that brings Android 4.2 has been made available on a further 3 devices: the Google Nexus S, Nexus S 4G, and the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 (TF300T).

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.

As per usual, you can get GApps from here, and the specific builds for each device are linked below...

    I thought i was faster than you guys and sent a G+ message, guess was not

    This tells me that Google's decision not to release an official 4.2 upgrade for the Nexus S was commercially driven.

      Its actually hardware. Although the nexus s works fine, it lacks some features and is not as smooth. This is built for 512mb +ram, not 396 on the nexus s. It will work fine, but not as good as a nexus 4 or galaxy nexus. Although, what do you expect, it is 2 years old. Most people who have a nexus s are devs that have or are planning on upgrading. Although, better than the iPhone 4 and 4s, same specs, no siri or many other features on the 4 than the 4s.

    Clock app is crashing when I try to set an alarm. Hope this will be fixed in the next nightlies :)

      the clock app is quite diifferent from the previous version you need to wipe data and set alarms !!!

      Extract from CM g+ Page: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+CyanogenMod/posts/9X561GFMxL5

      "If your clock starts crashing after upgrading to 10.1, simply go into the Settings -> Apps menu, choose Clock from the All tab, and hit "Clear data"."

    Jelly bean on Nexus S is notoriously slow. Is CM 9/10 faster? I've been thinking of rooting my phone because of just that.

      With CM10, I find that nexus s is better on app switching compared to stock rom.
