Official CM10 Preview for the International Galaxy S III i9300

Jelly Bean source was only recently released to AOSP, and now we’re beginning to see Android 4.1.1 ports popping up on some popular handsets, with even the venerable HD2 receiving a port. The CyanogenMod team recently made a statement on Google+ regarding their efforts to import Jelly Bean into their code repositories, and stated that CM10 would be coming in the future to most, if not all, devices that could run ICS. And now, as luck would have it, CM10 is now available for a few devices in preview form, including the Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300.

TeamHacksung has released a preview build for the i9300 that gives users a little taste of CM10 in its infancy. XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD posted this disclaimer:

This is a PREVIEW : CyanogenMod 10 is nowhere near ready to be used as a daily driver (lots of features still have to be merged), and same is the device support. CHECK THE KNOWN ISSUES LIST BEFORE THINKING ABOUT POSTING.

Those known issues are as follows:

- FMradio, heh!
– Camera is unstable, though taking pics should work
– Wi-Fi tethering is semi-broken

The steps to flash this preview, if you are of a mind to do so, are pretty standard for any CM build with a few minor exceptions:

- Make sure to run CM9 so you know you have everything
– Download the zip
– Download Gapps
– Install the update zip from recovery
– Install gapps
– WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET
– Reboot

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
