Hey there, 2012-era HTC smartphone owners. Wondering where your CyanogenMod nightly builds went? We were too, at least until CM team member Ethan Chen posted a short update on his Google+ page. New CyanogenMod 10.1 nightly builds are now rolling out for the HTC One XL (codename evita), One S (ville), Sprint's EVO 4G LTE (jewel), and Verizon's DROID Incredible LTE (fireball). You can find them all on the get.cm download page.


There's been no explanation for the 3-month gap in ROMs for these phones, all of which were based on the similar hardware found in the HTC One X LTE version and the One S. But in any case, they're back now, and should start getting regular updates like most of the other 10.1/Jelly Bean 4.2 devices. The usual warnings about nightly builds apply: they're probably OK at this point, but steer clear and wait for a release candidate if you want a more polished experience. If you're ready to flash, here's the link to CyanogenMod's Gapps.

CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightlies

Update: According to Brad Linder over at Liliputing, the three-month gap for some HTC ROMs was due to a DMCA takedown notice for the kernel. Now that the ROMs are based on a new version 3.4 kernel, the notice is irrelevant, and the ROMs are officially supported again.

If you were already running a custom ROM on any of the above phones, you'll need to do some extensive modding to get ready for the new builds, including re-locking and unlocking the bootloader once more. Check Liliputing for the details.

    I didn't realize it was still in active development, I thought the DMCA takedowns were the end for the jewel builds... Really glad to see that the CM team just can't be stopped.

    The One S has a fastboot flashable firmware.zip which was extracted from the JB OTA. Check XDA and you can probably do the same thing.

    Thank you CM team for releasing this build. It runs like lightning.

      I may have spoken too soon. During an app update on the Play Store, the phone rebooted, and is now caught in a boot loop before the lock screen widget loads. Ugh . . . I hope I don't have to downgrade to an earlier build.
