CyanogenMod 10.1.0 RC1 Released for Various Devices
We’ve featured various large-scale, cross-device ROMs on the Portal throughout the years, but it’s hard to argue that any particular ROM has earned the notoriety seen by CyanogenMod. After humble beginnings on the T-Mobile G1, CyanogenMod has grown into a huge project kept alive by dozens of developers throughout the world. In fact, today’s release is available for 40 devices at the time of writing.
So what’s the significance of CyanogenMod 10.1.0? Aside from being based on Android 4.2.2, this is the first time since Ice Cream Sandwich that Release Candidate nomenclature has been used.

And most importantly, if you find yourself grateful for these developers’ tireless efforts make sure you donate to the team.
