If you’re a fan of the rooting/hacking/modding scene you’ve inevitably heard about the famous CyanogenMod ROM. The great customizations found on this ROM are unbelievable. The problem is, it can often take a long time to get a fully stable build out to users. To remedy this situation, the Cyanogen team has come up with a new strategy, release a (mostly) stable build once a month called the “M-Build“. The M-Build will be almost entirely free of bugs and ready for daily use. Yesterday, CyanogenMod and friends released their first set of M-Builds based on Android 4.2 for a series of popular devices. Check below the break to see if your device is supported. I installed an M-Build on my Nexus S last night and it’s running great! If you’ve got one of the devices listed below, get to it! You’ve got nothing to lose! Be sure to read our Rooting dictionary for beginners if you’re new to all of this.
In addition to the Polaroid Kids tablet that was being shown at CES 2013, TalkAndroid was also able to spend some time checking out a couple new grown-up versions of tablets that Polaroid is bringing to market. The two tablets are part of their M Series with devices in both the 7-inch and the 10-inch class. Check out our hands on video after the break to see the devices. » Read the rest
Those of you looking to get an even bigger CyanogenMod fix are now in luck as the fine development team has announced a new series of the CM releases called “M-Series”. These experimental builds will be released on a monthly schedule, similar to the experimental nightly builds released on a nightly schedule. The big difference between the nightly and monthly builds is simply put— an emphasis of quality of quantity. The CM team will occasionally do a soft freeze of the codebase that will block new features in order to stabilize the newly updated ROM. This action will be done until the build reaches the stable release phase, allowing for users to then be able to enjoy all those new experimental features and goodies.
At the moment, the “M-Series” ROMs are only going to be available for a handful of devices, but don’t fret— the list is ever-growing and there’s a chance you will see your device added here at some point. Hit the jump to see the full list.
