After a great deal of toil, the CyanogenMod 10 stable ROM has now been made available for those running the LG Optimus Black, along with owners of the Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III. In addition, those in ownership of the Samsung-made Google Galaxy Nexus, the ASUS-manufactured Nexus 7 slate and the HTC EVO 4G can also join in the fun; more details below.
CyanogenMod is one of the most popular aftermarket firmware available to those on Google’s Android mobile operating system. Not only is it highly customizable, but it’s fairly easy to install and use, suffice to say it’s not difficult to see why so many choose to use it.
The latest batch of ROMs will be met with open arms, and with most of these latest stable builds weighing in at around 150MB, it won’t take too long to grab before you can enjoy many of the new and exciting features. Among them, is a new “expandable desktop” mode, an in-built file management tool, and of course support for a whole host of Android tablets and smartphones.
More builds are emerging all the time, so if you device isn’t mentioned above, don’t fret, because a release could be just around the corner. Still, the range available right now is more than reasonable, and with many of the most popular devices on the market covered, a large portion of you can head straight over to the CyanogenMod website and get stuck in.
While stable, it’s worth mentioning that some of the builds haven’t quite been working for some, so if you’re the kind of person that doesn’t like to download stuff early only to realize it doesn’t work as predicted, you might want to have a look around at comments of other first before downloading.
Those with a rooted Android device can head over to the stable section of the CyanogenMod site and grab the desired ROM. If you’re rooted but haven’t yet given CyanogenMod a try, you really owe it to yourself to have a go, and with it being such a polished experience nowadays, you might be surprised as to just how smooth it is for an aftermarket firmware.
