Three HTCs and a Samsung Walk into a (CM10) Bar…
The CyanogenMod crew has added four new devices to their officially supported lineup. This is exciting news, considering the popularity of the devices in question. These four flagship-status devices are some of the most widely-used phones on the market today. The list of devices and maintainers is as follows:
- HTC One XL (evita) maintained by XDA Recognized Developer h8rift
- HTC One S (ville) maintained by XDA Forums Member intervigil and XDA Senior Member xkonni
- HTC EVO 4G LTE (jewel) maintained by XDA Recognized Developer kushdeck
- Samsung Galaxy S III for US Cellular (d2usc) maintained by XDA Recognized Developer noobnl
This is great news for owners of these devices, since the aforementioned HTC and Samsung devices natively run HTC Sense and Samsung TouchWiz, respectively. Many users prefer a fully functional AOSP-based build to these bloated default ROMs, and CyanogenMod 10 fits the bill as an Android 4.1 ROM with some discrete, yet highly functional modifications. Keep your eye on the device forums to catch the latest release candidates, and try not to ask for ETAs!
