Android 4.2 AOSP ROM development is in full swing here at XDA with a plethora of devices receiving the 4.2 goods. Thankfully, there are no signs of it slowing down, as 4.2 AOSP ROMs are popping up everywhere. The latest devices to get CM10.1 are the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 and the much older original Samsung Galaxy S I9000.
XDA Recognized Contributor chasmodo released an unofficial port of CM10.1 for the Galaxy Note. This isn’t the first CM10.1 to be released, but XDA Elite Recognized Developer Entropy512 will be away for awhile and has passed the nightlies builds on to chasmodo. The ROM is in development, meaning there are things wrong with it. The list includes:
- UI: Apps like NHK are broken
- Audio: bugs, missing features
- Camera: Recording partially broken
- FM Radio: unsupported
- TV Out: unsupported, not likely to ever work (there is small hope now but not much)
- Lots of missing and yet unimplemented features
- and a lot more
It’ll likely be some time before this is fully stable. However, development is in progress and multiple devs are working on it.
XDA Recognized Developer pawitp released what is actually an official CM10.1 build for the Galaxy S. In terms of stability, the list of known issues says there are no outstanding bugs, so this actually could be a daily driver. Granted, there may be smaller issues, but the big stuff should be all taken care of. Not bad for a device that is pretty old by Android’s standards.
Update: As Elite Recognized Developer Entropy512 points out, there have actually been official nightlies for the N7000 for the past few days, with the thread update coming soon! You can find the nightlies in the usual place!_________
