For those of you that roll with a custom CyanogenMod 10 (CM10) AOSP ROM, today’s Nightly release (Oct. 10) comes with a slew of merged updates, including bringing your device up to Android 4.1.2. Those fine folks over at CyanogenMod sure do work quickly. If you remember, it was just yesterday that 4.1.2 was released to AOSP and began rolling out to the Nexus 7 via OTA.
Unfortunately we were only hit with the requisite “improves performance and stability and fixes bugs” change log from Google, and pouring through all that developer jargon in the official commit logs can be daunting in figuring out what has been changed or updated. Additionally, it’s still a little early to gain any takeaways from real-world testing of 4.1.2. However, based on a few lines in the commit logs we can see that one particular bug in 4.1.1 with “failing to connect to WPA enterprise wireless” has been addressed in 4.1.2. There also seems to be a few mentions of the browser, audio, camera, the kernel itself, and a slew of other updates.
If you’re on a recent CM10 release (within the past week), you can grab today’s release containing 4.1.2 from right there within your ROM by navigating to the CM Updater (Settings > About Phone > CyanogenMod updates). Otherwise you can grab it from your favorite source. If you’re new to the CM10 custom ROM scene and like what you hear, you can navigate to their site to read up on their AOSP custom ROMs for a multitude of devices.
