If you’re unhappy with your Nexus 7 running the latest Android and you want even more, you may want to play with the latest CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies. That’s basically the custom ROM built around the absolute latest Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean release. Most Nexus devices are already enjoying Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, but Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus isn’t, so that’s at least a reason to jump on this opportunity.


As usual, this release is filled with various improvements and added features, aside from the usual Android release. Nightly builds are not exactly the most stable releases, so don’t get extra excited about them. However, the devs have reached point where nightly builds are still stable enough for daily use. The folks of Android Community have been playing with CM 10.1 for a few weeks without issues.

There’s a full list of download mirrors for your various devices here, including the likes of Galaxy Tab 10.1 and even the OG Galaxy Tab, if you can believe it. Galaxy Note 10 is also on the list, as well as a bunch of other famous devices like the Nexus 10 and Xperia T.
