Official CM10 Nightlies Now Available for the Motorola Xoom
It’s time for another CM10 for [insert device here] post. This however is not just any old device. It’s the Motorola Xoom, the Honeycomb lead device—a tablet that’s stood the test of time. It also happens to be this author’s tablet of choice, which is why I’m pretty excited. A highly optimized and tweaked build of Android 4.1 has been available for the Xoom (WiFi Wingray, 3G Everest, 4G Stingray) for a while now thanks to the fantastic work of TeamEOS. However, more options is never a bad thing, and many users have grown to love CyanogenMod.
XDA Recognized Developer Steady Hawkin broke the news of official CM10 nightlies for both the Winray & Stingray versions. All the usual nightly build rules apply, so don’t submit bug reports without a logcat to back it up. Up until the most recent nightly there were some issues with sensors, and some people are reporting that their system partition is quickly maxed out. However there are workarounds for these issues, and for the most part the builds seem to be pretty stable.
Check out the original nightly release thread for more info, change logs, and the all-important download links.

It's a slippery slope...
