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.

Considering the Epic 4G originally shipped with Android 2.1 Eclair,  receiving official CM10 nightlies is a very nice bonus for the device. The ROM itself is highly functional with only a few known issues:

  • Headset mic is not working.
  • Phone may enter deep sleep while on a wall charger (not USB).
  • 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.

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5. To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
