After more than a month of unofficial CyanogenMod builds, the HTC Holiday (also known as the Vivid, Raider, or Velocity) has joined the ranks of devices with official CM support, receiving its first weekly CM10 build earlier today. It's not yet clear when or if the Holiday's build cycle will transition to a nightly schedule.

At the time of writing, the build's known issues involve Bluetooth Audio skipping, hardware video playback, tethering, and the inability to record video in 1080p. Otherwise, the Holiday's first weekly looks like daily driver material.


If you're still toting HTC's Holiday and want to be brought up to speed with Android 4.1.2 (plus the CM enhancements we know and love), hit the links below to keep up with the conversation and get the latest build.

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.

    Jellybean 4.1 is on weekly only status so it wont get nightlies no matter the device. once its on 4.2 (in the coming months), it will be in nightly status :).

    Thanks for the shoutout, the community is great and this would not have happened without everyone's help.

    Glad to see some development on the device.

    It's kinda tragic that I ended up abandoning it (for the Desire HD) due to the plethora of problems that it had ever since AOSP was being compiled for the device months ago.
