    For the uninitiated...

    Right now, CyanogenMod consists of three parallel and active major versions: CyanogenMod 7 is based on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), and CyanogenMod 10 is based on Android 4.1 (JB) and CyanogenMod 10.1 is based on Android 4.2; CM10.1-capable devices are being phased out of CM10.0 , but since thereâ(TM)s a large amount of devices still on the market that arenâ(TM)t capable of fully running Android 4.x, CyanogenMod 7 exists to support them.

    That is from their "about" page, and now slightly out of date with the release of 10.2. That version is based off of Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean).

      Correction. This is a milestone release, not what they call a stable release, which is their highest level. It pretty much means beta release, as opposed to what the call a stable release. It's supported on 70 devices, including my 3 year old phone.

  • Verizon and others would love you to upgrade your device so often. Usually if you want latest and greatest, that would be only way.

    For example, device I bought in late 2011, came with Android 2.3 and had only one upgrade - to 4.0. Yet I'm still on the contract, and there were 4 Android releases.
    Thanks to mods and CM, I got very stable version of Android 4.3, and I intend to keep my device for a while.
    Thanks to Verizon and HTC, I got not much for my money.

    This is one area where Apple excels, their device com

It is much harder to find a job than to keep one.
