If you're still toting Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1, good news – CyanogenMod let loose a flurry of new nightlies for the device today, all carrying the CM 10.1 moniker, meaning owners of Samsung's ten-inch Tab from 2011 can enjoy a stock Android 4.2 experience with some key improvements. Among those receiving the new nightlies are the Wi-Fi only Tab (p4wifi), Verizon and T-Mobile connected variants (p4vzw and tmo), the p4, and even the p3, which is the Galaxy Tab 10.1v.


If you've been waiting to get a taste of Android 4.2 with CyanogenMod enhancements on your Tab 10.1, just hit the appropriate link below and grab the nightly.

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.

    How is this news? They have been releasing 4.2 nighlys for weeks.

      Actually this is the first time -any- of the above devices have received an official 10.1 nightly.

        How do you guys have some of the crankiest know-it-all readers?

        Pedant here, you're both wrong. They've been doing this for 5 days :P

          No, they haven't. It's the first 10.1 nightlies. Look again - the rest are CM10.0.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      They most definitely have not been.

      Even CM posted about them today: https://plus.google.com/117962666888533781522/posts/SHyZKBxmuVu

    I'm gonna wait on this to see if it's a stable release. I've never done any rooting so I don't want to mess around with a $479 device =/

      don't worry, you wont "mess" it up. even if you did, its recoverable and if you don't know how there are tons of videos on YouTube and forums like XDA where you can get all the help you need--in most cases, you get help within hours after posting on XDA.

      No offense, but it's not a $400+ device anymore. At this point, all of the first generation 10" tablets are in the low $200 range, and a couple like that Acer thing, are probably scraping the $150 territory. I was thinking of selling my SGTab10.1, then I realized it wasn't even worth the trouble of selling it for the little I'd get back out of it. Besides, it'll be useful for testing.

      Also worth noting, it is the single easiest device there is to mod. Installing ClockwordMod is trivial, flashing anything to anywhere can be done from the computer, and it's virtually unbrickable (can't say I've heard of anything that permanently bricks it). Strictly speaking, it's the single greatest tablet prior to the Nexus 7 for pure hacking/flashing purposes...and might actually be better, as there are a couple of things that can make a Nexus 7 really painful to recover.

      I wouldn't try to push anybody to root/mod a device if they rely on it or they can't bear to lose it, but this one will never see any further support from Samsung and it's so much better with CyanogenMod than it is with stock firmware and TouchWiz.

        P7500 cyano jb is very unstable, and overall browser, no matter which one, always blocking throwing you to the home but also mail had configuration problems, Day After day got even worst with daily update! Back to ics!

          I haven't made it around to flashing the CM 10.1 nightly to my P7510/p4wifi yet. The virtual machine I have set up for doing anything with ODIN has recently stopped detecting Samsung devices when they are in download mode (odd since it can see them in any other mode). Since MobileODIN won't flash bootloaders, I'm going to have to either fix the VM (unlikely, that'll take too much time) or fire up the Windows laptop and install the mass of drivers that I don't want clogging it up.

          I have a feeling that in a week or two when I get around to this, the nightlies for this device should be a lot better.

    Is the camera working now on the with this release of CM 10.1?

    • http://AndroidPolice.com/ Liam Spradlin

      On my p4wifi the camera seems to be working fine, except there's no photo sphere.

    I'll just leave this here in case fellow SGT10.1 owners don't already know about Pershoot and his basement:

    After I flashed it, I can't connect to the internet via 3G or Wifi. Help?

    • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

      There are three likely causes for this. The first two go hand-in-hand, being that you either didn't wipe the cache and dalvik cache and do a factory reset after flashing (this is a major version update, so it shouldn't just be flashed on top of an earlier version without a reset), or you may have just had a bad flash. In either case, get back into recovery, redo the flash, wipe both caches, and do a factory reset.

      Second, you may still be on an old bootloader and/or modem. Start with checking out http://droidbasement.com/db-blog/ and check out the details for your model. I only have a Wifi version, so you'll probably need to investigate model-specific details on XDA.
