Custom ROM fans have a lot to look forward to in the coming days as the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) team has started rolling out its latest work. The team's recent creation, CyanogenMod 10.1, based on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean (Build: JOP40D), is available for several Samsung devices, including the popular Galaxy Note 2 (N7100) and the U.S. variants of Galaxy S3.

At the moment, there are a bunch of new custom ROMs out there, but perhaps none more popular than CyanogenMod. The AOSP team is supporting more devices all the time, and among their most recent additions to the CM 10.1 list are the Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 2, and the Galaxy S3.

However, users must remember that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 mentioned here is the international version of the device with the model number N7100. This means that the Galaxy Note 2 N7105 or the LTE-enabled Note 2 is not included.

The CyanogenMod 10.1 updates are in the nightlies stage now. For the ones who are unsure, nightlies are daily releases that have the latest patches and developments included, as stated by Android Authority.

Amazingly, there are no major issues with these CyanogenMod nightlies, and the Android Authority report states: “Unless you read the change logs, you really can’t tell what will work and what won’t in the next release. However, if these are official, it’s safe to assume that most of the big things like calling, texts, data, etc should work pretty well.”

“A device gets CM nightlies once it’s considered stable enough to be a daily driver, so you shouldn’t have much stability issues on your device running CyanogenMod 10.1,” a SamMobile report says. “Do keep in mind that some features of previous CM revisions are yet to be implemented into CM10.1 but will soon be available in future nightly builds.”

CyanogenMod, currently, offers features and options that are not found in the official firmware distributed by vendors of the supported devices. Per reports, as of Aug. 24, 2012, CyanogenMod had recorded over 3.1 million installs on a host of devices.
