Claiming the title of the first MSM8660-packing devices to get CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies, LG's Optimus LTE and Nitro HD (su640 and p930) joined the lineup today.



In a post to Google+, CyanogenMod is sure to note that the introduction of the Nitro HD and Optimus LTE does not necessarily indicate the imminent support of other devices that use Qualcomm's MSM8660 chip. "What it does mean," the post goes on, "is that the first hurdle towards more devices has been achieved."

That said, the nightlies are still great news for Nitro HD/Optimus LTE owners who have been hankering for an AOSP-inspired Android 4.2 experience with the full CyanogenMod treatment. Hit the appropriate link below to grab the downloads or check out CyanogenMod's original post.

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.

    A testament as to why bootloaders should be left unlocked. Devices should be able to be updated freely after the manufacturer drops support, just like with PC's.

    Go-go Spectrum Devs! Tossed my Galaxy Nexus aside due to radio/signal issues and was using the Spectrum for a long time. Switched back with CM 10.0...just couldn't get along without all the goodness....

    Would love to see 10.1 on the Spectrum. CM10.1 on a device that actually *works* as a phone....*drools*
