Update: The Nexus 7 2013 build (codename "Flo") has now been posted. It's the first official CM build for the new Nexus 7.

ROM addicts, the time has come. The CyanogenMod team has been working diligently on version 10.2 of the popular ROM family, the Android Jelly Bean 4.3 update. Tonight the first batch of nightlies are being posted to the download page, Get.CM. There are only a few devices with updated builds at the moment, but that should change as the night progresses. The build boxes are pushing out device files as fast as they can.


Unfortunately, not all of the officially supported CyangoenMod devices will be getting version 10.2 right away. According to the announcement post on Google+ there will be a few stragglers, but presumably the plan is to get everything updated eventually. They didn't say which phones or tablets would be left out. At the time of writing, there are only six builds up: the Galaxy S Relay 4G for T-Mobile, the Samsung Captivate for AT&T, and the AT&T, Sprint, MetroPCS, and Cricket versions of the Galaxy S III. Builds will be posted in alphabetical order based on their manufacturer/CyanogenMod codename. They're coming in fast, so keep an eye out.

As always, you'll need the Gapps flashable ZIP if you want access to the Play Store - the current version for 10.1 should work with the nightly builds. (Update: looks like there's a 4.3 version of Gapps available.) That said, it's always best to have a backup of your current ROM handy in case anything goes wrong. Check the list on the right of the Get.CM page to get a rough idea of when your phone will come up (if it's included in the initial batch), and if you don't know the codename, poke around the wiki to find it. Happy flashing, ladies and gents.

    Hopefully data works on D2vzw (sgs3) , it didn't work day one on cm10.1.

    • Sean

      The official nightlies aren't rolling out for the Verizon S3 yet, though I've been running a fairly stable unofficial one for a few days.

  • TechGuy22

    im running slimbean looks good so far. tried cm 10.2 but lack of features turned me away

  • silver_arrow

    But...But... they said Nexus devices first...

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

      They're rolling out alphabetically. So it's Nexus plus all the others.

      • silver_arrow

        Ahhh okay was wondering why it seemed like an odd list. Well M is coming up soon =D

  • Phillip Booker

    I cracked my phone last night and was this close to buying something different...I guess not :-)

    I'm kinda torn now a days. Should I flash CM (nemesis n all sound sooo tempting)? Or should I wait for AOKP to start rolling 4.3? I heard CM doesn't have all the customizations that AOKP offers. Can anyone tell me which aokp customization is missing from CM?

    • glenn

      I'm going to flash CM10.2 solely to get rid of the 4.3 OTA download bug from AOKP's latest. I'll go straight back to AOKP once they release it though.

      • Ben Freund

        What OTA bug?

        • Glenn

          The system downloads the update in the background even though you're on a custom ROM. Some devs have apparently fixed it beforehand but AOKP obviously missed it. I went over my data cap because of it :(

          • Ben Freund

            Weird I haven't heard of that. Was that with Milestone 2? Did you get a system update notification? I haven't had one on my Gnexus

          • Mark

            Ben did CM 4.3 fix the background data problem? i am in process of installing it now.

          • burnedspy

            If it didnt you can download autorun manager, go into google framework services and disable the update checker.

    • Sqube

      Honestly, the list is almost too long. AOKP has a lot of granular changes that CM doesn't. It focuses on feeling stock and adding stuff that you didn't even know you needed until you get it.

  • bdh

    I've already started unofficial fully stable 10.2 nightlies for jfltevzw (VZW Galaxy S4). http://www.teamrage.net

    • bdh

      Seriously a down vote? Get a life.

      • J.Ack

        lol a life? No way.

  • power_pizza

    Super happy with Stable 10.1. I might wait until Stable or at the very least M snapshots before I dive in.

    • Jamin

      all nightlies during the last 4 months were stable as far as I can tell...

      • Moti

        but 4.3 is out there for only a couple of weeks, no?

  • http://www.aymansanliturk.com/ Ayman Sanliturk

    Paranoid Android released 3.96 without dead locks that JSS builds have. They should also have a front page news because it is damn good :)

        Good to go

      • geekingreen

        Earpiece audio seems to be borked. Other than that works well.

  • Franco Rossel

    Just updated on Nexus 4. Photosphere on stock android camera is gone. Also, I have 2 Gallery apps, with one uninstalled. Anyone else running into this issue?

    • fred

      Nexus 4 no Photosphere also, it does mention that its missing on the gapps file though.

  • Dawid Kamecki

    4xHD is available

  • Death Becomes Me

    I really hope they fix the audio issues when using dsp manager or any equalizer app.

  • Vetal

    nexus 4 cm10.2 root seems to be a problem, cant get ti to work, or any root app.

    • Deiden

      Same here.

    • http://simonkberg.me/ Simon Kjellberg

      this took a while for me to figure out: you have to go to the developer options and activate root for BOTH apps and adb. root on 4.3 is actually a hacky-ish workaround, it's just a daemon that talks to the adb interface. sigh

  • babaibhat

    Where is "grouper" (original Nexus 7) build?

  • Rohan Bhatt

    Hey , has it been released for the Galaxy S duos

  • sasanka Lakpriya Ambepitiya

    what day for compatible with HTC incredible S ??????

    • pen15

      Are you seriously retarded? they stopped supporting vivo at cm7, let alone cm10.2.. use ur brains.

      • sasanka Lakpriya Ambepitiya

        hey man now i am using CM 10.1 with JB 4.2.2 all are working fine (wifi,3G,camera,and all)

  • Ted_kazynski

    Using 10.2 on my AT&T one X. It's amazing. Seeing how AT&T is terrible at timely updates, and I hate sense Roms, cm10.2 is unbelievable. Like a brand new nexus-ish phone. I had to upgrade the bootloader by going back to stock and then unlock and re-root. Well worth the trouble. Good things to come. Here's hoping for a stable release soon. (nightly 's are working pretty flawless right now though!)

  • Lokejlat Jabonbat

    Nothing for Motorola Droids?
