Being a free Android aftermarket distribution, CyanogenMod system is a custom-made ROM that comes with more features, capabilities and apps than the original version. Most of those things can’t be found on any original Jelly Bean software and this is why Android geeks all over the world are always looking forward to the next version of CM. The system is also known as the most popular custom software, which is being installed on millions of devices all over the world. The good thing is it doesn’t matter if you own a low- or high-end device – the mode will work fine on both. According to many specialists, this is one of the main advantages that Android offers to its users – the freedom of installing custom ROMs.
Finally, we’ve managed to pull some strings and find information regarding the leaked CyanogenMod version 10.1. According to our informer, the mode has been spotted running on S4 from T-Mobile.
Owners of Samsung Galaxy S4 with model number of SGH M919 will be the first lucky ones that will be able to apply the update which will go by the name Nightlies 10.1. Don’t feel doomed if your device hasn’t acquired this model number because you will have the chance to update sooner than you think. Thy CM team announced that they are doing their best to release the update to all other devices.
However, we want to remind you that in case you want to apply the custom ROM your device has to be rooted and have custom recovery image installed. Keep in mind that if you have performed those actions, or intend to do so, you will lose your warranty. The recovery tool is needed to make backup because if something goes wrong during the update you will lose all your personal data. We recommend following suitable guides that are from reliable sources! Otherwise you risk bricking your smartphone.
This is the information we have managed to pull up for now. Once again, the first device that will be able to get the update is T-Mobile’s S4. Its owners will have the chance to update to Nightlies probably later today. If you are eager to this as soon as possible, you should probably drink a couple of coffees to keep yourself awake, because there is no official release hour. Low- and mid-range devices are reported to receive the update sooner, so don’t lose hope if you don’t own Samsung’s flagship handset.
