CM10.1 Test Builds for the HTC G2 / Desire Z

With Jelly Bean 4.1 development finally winding down after an exciting summer, Jelly Bean 4.2 seems to be picking up. The CM10.1 ports began a couple week ago, and they probably won’t stop for quite some time. Now, the HTC Desire Z and G2 have a port of CM10.1.

XDA Senior Member Flinny released a port on behalf of the Andromadus team. If you’re unfamiliar with the team, they’re a group of devs who work on devices with hardware that isn’t really supported anymore: things such as hardware keyboards and trackpads. The port is surprisingly stable for an initial release. As Flinny explains:

All of the stuff learnt from the AOSP builds has been incorporated so basically all hardware should work to the same level as it does in the AOSP4.2 builds.
If a feature is not there then it’s not been ported/merged by CM yet, I will merge them as they do.
Vision – Trackpad unlock still inoperative.

The track pad doesn’t work right now, but most of the other features should. Users have reported that the ROM works pretty well so far, with only a minor issue here and there. However, it is still an alpha, which means there may be bugs that have not yet been found. If you have a G2 / Desire Z and you like AOSP, then this is definitely something to try out.
