Back in September, the CyanogenMod team started doing a monthly release of their current progress that was more stable than the nightlies they released. They called these builds "M-Series." The team stopped doing this builds when 4.2 was released to focus on getting all of their features back into the newly released code. Now, the team has decided to start the M-Series back up and has released their first M-Series build of CM 10.1.
The first M-Series release for CM10.1 only includes a handful of devices, but there will be more added to the next M-Series build. Here are the devices that have M-Series builds:
- Samsung Captivate
- Samsung Nexus S (+4G)
- Samsung Galaxy S3 USA models (D2*)
- Samsung Galaxy S (galaxysmtd/galaxysbmtd)
- Google Nexus 7
- Google Galaxy Nexus (all variants)
- Google Nexus 4
- Google Nexus 10
- ODroid U2
- Samsung P3100, P3110
- Samsung P5100, P5110
Last night before I went to bed, I loaded up the M-Series build on my Verizon Galay Nexus and Nexus 7. So far, it is living up to billing; the features you'd expect on a stable build of CyanogenMod are there, and there have been no signs (so far) of phantom battery drains or instability. If you were thinking about hopping on the CyanogenMod train, go for it. You get the newest version of Android, some great added on features, and a pretty stable ROM. Head over to Get.CM
and let us know what you think. Happy flashing!
