Unofficial CM10 for the Droid RAZR M

It not only gives users a chance to try out vanilla Android on their new toys, but also sets the stage for future AOSP releases. Plus, users seem to really enjoy the full Google experience. Now, Motorola Droid RAZR M users can run CyanogenMod 10.
The unofficial port was released by XDA Senior Member dhacker29, who also released an unofficial build of CM10 for the RAZR HD.

Even so, WiFi Direct and NFC aren’t the worst things that could be wrong with an initial port. So if those are features you don’t use very often or don’t intend to use, this could very well be a usable ROM.
