CyanogenMod announces new ‘M-Series’ monthly builds [Android]September 11, 2012 0 Email article | Print article
If you find it difficult to keep up with the nightly builds of CyanogenMod 10, you might be happy to hear that the CyanogenMod team has announced new ‘M-Series’ releases for CM10. Essentially these M-Series builds are a step between nightly and beta builds, leaning more towards the nightly side; they will be released with the “Experimental” tag for now and the CM team is not even sure what M stands for.
The CyanogenMod team will release M-Series builds at the beginning of every month from now on and will continue to do this before getting a stable version out. To do this, the team is planning to freeze their codebase every month to get a semi-stabilized M-Series ROM. They have released a list of devices that will get the new builds and the list includes the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S, Nexus 7, Nexus S, Galaxy Note and Sony Xperia S.
The team said in a blogpost that they will continue to add devices “as time goes on up until our stable release.” All the installation details and build details will be available at the CM Wiki and users can visit CM’s official forums if they need any help. You can also read dotTech’s guide on how to install CyanogenMod but that guide is focused on stable releases of CM; you will need to modify the directions if you want M-Series.
The CyanogenMod team is known for maintaining a high level of quality control and these new monthlies are a great way to do that. If you want to get the full list of devices or get link to download the builds, you can head over to the official website via the link below.
