Cyanogenmod 10.1 RC1 Starts To Roll Out To Devices Near You 124

New submitter Noitatsidem writes "Good news for Cyanogenmod users, according to their blog it looks like 10.1 is nearing its stable release. 'We haven't used the "Release Candidate" nomenclature since the ICS days, but we feel the 10.1 branch is quickly approaching the point where a "final" build is due. To prepare for that eventuality, RC1 builds for CyanogenMod 10.1.0 are now landing on our servers! This will be one of (if not the last) milestone releases before a 10.1.0 is pushed out. These builds will appear as they complete the build process and, as always, you can download the builds via!' Android Police speculates that this is due in part to the rumored release announcement of Android 4.3 given at Google I/O 2013 which is taking place in (now) less than one week. Looks like the Android community will have a lot to talk about in coming days!"

  • Yes, yes, I know - "if you don't know you shouldn't be allowed to read Slashdot" - but then that's exclusionist bullshit, obviously.

    That would be exclusionist bullshit, but that is not the bar. How are you getting along with that straw man? The bar is if you can't use Google and Wikipedia, you shouldn't be allowed to use the internet. There is just no risk that if you ask google or wikipedia what cyanogenmod is that you will not find out immediately. If asking wikipedia doesn't even lead to a disambiguation page, then you have no excuse for not being able to find out what it is. If it doesn't mean anything to you when you read the summary, then the story is not for you. Move on, and quit your juvenile bitching.

    So true. It's a shame that the original manufacturer won't support a device that came out just two years ago (HTC Desire S came out in 2011 if I'm correct).

    It's sad that the open alternative can't support it.

    In the meantime, the latest version of Apple iOS supports iPhones released back into 2009 with iPhone 3GS. If you bought the latest iPhone available in 2009, you would still get the latest OS today almost four years later.

    I *really* hope that the phone manufacturers will just drop the idea that everything that's not an x86 has to be specialized locked down hardware. It's a computer, start treating it like one.
