If you have an aging-but-not-yet-dead Epic 4G just waiting to be upgraded, maybe now's the time to slap a good ol' dose of CyanogenMod on it. Why now? Because it just got its first official CM10.1 nightly. Sure, you could've been running CM10 for some time, but now you can have the latest build that AOSP has to offer.

With CM10.1 – which is based on Android 4.2.x for those who may not know – you get fun things like lockscreen widgets (so you can finally get in on the DashClock action), Quick Settings, and a few other, less obvious tweaks.

As always, make sure to grab the latest version of GApps if you plan on flashing, otherwise you'll be stuck with a Google-less phone!

    Correction, this is for the Epic 4g ( http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_epic_4g-3410.php ), _not_ the Epic 4g Touch ( http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s_ii_epic_4g_touch-3956.php ). GS1 vs GS2

      Yep. Fixed.

        Why is the article still tagged under the Epic 4G Touch though?

          Holy shit, Cameron, who writes like 10 articles a day, made a mistake. Let's lynch him!

          • fixxmyhead

            a slap would suffice.

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

            Oh, I slapped him alright.

    epicmtd is the original Epic 4G with the hardward keyboard.

    I could be wrong, but isn't this for the Epic 4G...NOT the Epic 4G TOUCH?

    The Epic 4G Touch is d710. You are thinking of the original Epic 4G, which is codenamed epicmtd.
    I develop CM 10.1 for the d710 and have yet to be merged with CM.

    • Zak Taccardi

      any reason why it can't be merged yet?

        We don't have source for the Jelly Bean kernel yet. Battery life is horrific without it. Also, GPS is very, very iffy.

        Actually because it is in the review process. I've submitted my work to CM and am waiting for a reply from them.

    Wow. I've since sold my Epic 4G. It was my first Android phone coming from a Palm Pre. Glad to see it's still truckin'.

    So sad for those of us with the newer Touch.
