The CyanogenMod team sure shook-up its normal build strategy with the introduction of M, or monthly releases, starting with CM 10. As such, custom ROM fans had access to more stable, polished releases than the bleeding-edge nightlies. Development of CyanogenMod 10.1 continued with the release of several of these M builds, but now it’s time for things to get just a little more formal, as we start looking forward to the final version of 10.1, following today’s announcement of the first Release Candidate.
CyanogenMod 10.1 RC1 is coming to a whole mess of Androids, and with three-dozen-some models supported, a lot of Android users are going to have the opportunity to check this out. You’ll want to hit up the source link to see the full list yourself, as well as look at the file repositories to see if RC1 has landed for your phone – while it is coming for all models on that list, it might take a little time for each build to arrive.
There’s no specific ETA on the final version of CM 10.1, but from here there’s really not much farther to go; with any luck, we’ll see it in just a matter of weeks.
