Epic 4G Receives Official CyanogenMod 10 Nightlies
We recently reported on the growing number of devices receiving CyanogenMod 10 nightly builds. We can now add another device to this list. XDA Recognized Developer CMTeamEpic brings the Samsung Epic 4G to the exclusive group.

- Occassional reboot possibility is present, but it could be days between them, if it happens at all.
Those looking to get their hands on the CyanogenMod 10 nightlies should head on over to the ROM thread.[Thanks to XDA Senior Member hamagc for the tip!]

So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
