Crack flashers of the world: if you’ve been progressing through nightlies, snapshots and milestones, today is your day. CyanogenMod 10.2 is now officially stable. Onward and upward! CM11 (based on 4.4 Kit Kat) is now in the works and will be the go-forward focus.
Also tossed into the announcement of CM 10.2 is the point that CM nightly builds based on ICS (CM 9) will be halted so that newer versions — 10 and higher — can be actively released. Much like the slowing work on the stable version of 10.2, continuing to pump out new nightly builds of older CM branches makes less sense as very few meaningful changes are being consistently made to them.
For now, if you’ve been waiting for the official “stable” release of CM 10.2 in lieu of using a release candidate or nightly build, now’s the time to do so. Downloads of CM 10.2 builds are already starting to be available from CyanogenMod’s website at the second source link below. For those who wish to stay on the bleeding edge, CM 10.2 nightlies will continue to roll as CM 11 development moves along as well.
Writers note – running 10.2.0 on my HTC One. Perfection.
