0. phoneArena 02 Dec 2013, 20:59 posted on

The CyanogenMod team has been hard at work and the stable release for CyanogenMod 10.2 is finally ready for quite a few devices. The team has already released the stable ROM of CyanogenMod 10.2 to about 15 devices and over 30 models of smartphones and tablets, and this means the bulk of the workload will now shift to building CyanogenMod 11...

Tell me about it when carriers adopts u as an official OS and CyanogenMod dont make me root my phone and get the warranty voided. PS: CyanogenMod is an android version modified, so no, it is not the same as android.

"PS: CyanogenMod is an android version modified, so no, it is not the same as android."

CyanogenMod is an Android ROM. It's based off of AOSP (stock android roms) if i'm not mistaken, just with tweaks and extra features. Calling it " not the same as android" would be the same as calling Touchwiz, Sense, and whatever LG calls it's skin not Android.

Touchwiz, sense and LG whatever calls it are Official tweaks and extra features. Thats why carriers allow them. PS: rooting the phone to install an unofficial ''Android'' OS voids the warranty and may brick the phone.

The carriers won't allow it because it allows people to do what the carriers won't allow, like free tethering.

The fact that a carrier wouldn't allow is all the more reason to like it.

If you want to have carrier support, well, go ahead. I see no need to pay extra for data I've already paid for.

You can always go back to stock. Kinda like jail braking an iphone. What will AT&T do for you even if you do have a warranty? Find out a way to not replace your phone or give you a "lightly" used one instead of a new one.

Have to blame the closed Exynos code of Sammy... (US S3 is actually based on Qualcomm Sanpdragon so not much of an issue) Same for Note2 also...

Install the recent GApps package from XDA or Goomanager. If that doesn't work, clear cache and delvik cache before flashing the ROM again.
