CyanogenMod Plans To Make Quick Work Updating To CM10, Jelly Bean And All

So, you all want some Jelly Bean on your Android device but don’t want to wait for the OEM’s to take their time and push out the update? Fear not, CyanogenMod 10 will have you covered as the team posts an update on Google+ with their intentions to base CM10 on the Android 4.1 Jelly BeanROM. The team believes converting Jelly Bean will be relatively easy thanks to only needing a few minor tweaks to make it work with the last available Android ROM.

Still, without the Android Open Source Project code available for the team to beginning modifying, the timeframe for release is still unknown. One move the team does seem confident in is the ability to run CM10 on any device that can now run CM9. For now, we’ve got to wait for a stable CM9 release before the team can shift focus over to their next adventure with CM10. Regardless of the timeframe needed to make it work, we’re taking a lot of comfort in the hope the Cyanogen team will likely push out their own Jelly Bean CM10 ROM well before any of the carriers or manufacturers will.

    If I was to place a bet on this, I would wager that we won’t see a source code until Nexus 7 and the Galaxy OTAs drop… In either case, it will be a glorious day that I can get jelly bean on my S III… or I might just have to cave and buy myself a Nexus when they start selling it again…

    • TrUsTmEiMaNuRsInGsTuDeNt

      Nexus is back on sale.

    Wait… is even CM9 up and stable yet?!  Serious question, I stop checking their website for info on it a while ago…

    • Mgmessner

       CM9 is practically stable, been running it on my Nexus for months. No bugs i’ve found.

    • xBIGREDDx

       Not a full “stable” release yet, but they did drop RC1 about a week ago:

    • Herb

       It’s not *officially* stable, but it might as well be.

  • Fthsrhf

    Will it have flash cuz I heard jb does have flash have it any way in cm10

    • Mgmessner


    •  Adobe has stop support at ICS so if they get it to work on JB/CM10 it will be a old version

  • Josue

    i have CM9 on my note and once in a while my phone shuts off but long story short cant wait till i get JB on my note

    • krazytrixxxsta

       that to be expected since it still on alpha(nightly) and beta(release candidate).

      • Thecityboy781

        so that explains it

    Either the Cyanogen team needs a huge pat on the back, the manufactures/manufacturers need a swift backhand, or both for the speed at which these guys push out a fully cooked OS. I really appreciate carrier delay so I can have [insert bloat-app here] which I will never use installed on my device.

    Then again, I bought a Nexus for a reason. ;-)
