Folks rocking the Sprint version of the LG Optimus G have reason to celebrate today. Although LG has moved on to the G2, the ROM community is showing some love to last year's device. CyanogenMod 10.2 has added support for the LG Optimus G on Sprint.

2013-09-20 09_35_40-CyanogenMod Downloads

The first nightly build of 10.2 is now live and ready for download and clocks in at 189.92MB. All those glorious bytes will rocket the device from Android 4.1 all the way up to 4.3 with no crapware and a cleaner UI.

You can expect more nightly builds, so you don't have to flash this first one. Remember, a nightly is bound to have some bugs.

    I hope G2 gets good support from community. Killer hardware combined with clean OS will make it the best android device in the market.

    I hope CM doesnt charge for this

      Durr, hurr, derp?

      They won't.

      Did no-one pay attention, or is it "cool" now to pretend to be in idiot? The OS will remain free and open source. The services *may* begin to transition into some form of monetizing license scheme.

      Folks making CM-based ROMS will still benefit from the OS core. Contributors will still be able to help build a stable and useful OS that can be used as-is, or modified by ROM cookers, or even OEMs. Nothing will change on that front.

      All that they've ever talked about changing is the licensing of services. Which still wouldn't affect users like you in the least...

      • The_Chlero

        What about those "services" being required to being able to use some functions. Like a "PRO" account for $5 a month to being able to use the customized launcher or being able to use some overclocking features or something like that.

        At the end, they are now a corporation that NEEDS to make money from wherever they can, otherwise their investors will go away.

          "NEEDS to make money from wherever they can"


          They need to make money. They won't do it by alienating their user-base. Give them a little credit. They're smarter than that.

          If you honestly believe you've got it all figured out and that there is no way they can make money that you haven't already thought of, well...one cannot reasonably argue with the delusional.

    No focal in CM from now on=no flashing CM from now on.

    • PhoenixPath

      Seriously? An app you'll likely be able to get from the Play store means you don't want the OS at all?

      Apparently you didn't have much use for CM to begin with...

      • sourabh

        i already have a better OS ie slim bean.it is much more stable and the features are too good , especially the one click inverted gapps.

        yes,i dont have much use for CM especially when ROMs like Slimbean are available.

        Developers of CM were the only developers that were literally crying over the lack of drivers of exynos devices,their ROMs were the most buggy(even RC ).

        Other roms like PA and AOKP were rock solid at the very same time.

        The only reason i switched to CM was to try focal, i liked it.i kept the apk and updated my rom again.Slim's 4.3 on my s3 is stable and a lot less buggy than CM's 4.3.
        Due to recent developments ,focal has been removed from CM,therefore killing the only reason i was flashing CM for.
        I love AOSP roms,but their camera app sucks and IMHO i think focal is better.
        I hope xplod releases the app in the play store.

          No use for CM? Heh...you made a funny.

          Thanks for the comic relief, man. You made me laugh. Thanks.

          Oh, in case you were actually serious: Slim Bean:

          Jelly Bean 4.2.2 "SlimBean" Based CyanogenMod10.1

          - Based off of CM.

          For what it's worth? I have no problem with any of the ROMs based on CM. It's one of the things that makes CM so great; they are a spring board for so many other great ROMs.

          Clues....get 'em while they're hot!

    It's extremely stable from what I can tell. I did have one crash (looked like a bluescreen of death) after running an OpenGL ES3.0 demo but I haven't been able to repeat it.

    Official support for the AT&T model (E970) was added today: http://get.cm/?device=e970

    can someone make a youtube video on how to this with their Sprint LS970 phone?
