CM10 will be the designated Android Jelly Bean ROM from the CyanogenMod crew

CM10 will be the designated Android Jelly Bean ROM from the CyanogenMod crew
The CyanogenMod team broke the spell last night as to how is their Jelly Bean ROM going to be called, given that CM9 is Android ICS-based, and when are we going to see the JB efforts.

The crew apparently thinks that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is a pretty major update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, so it warrants a CyanogenMod 10 designation, not to mention J is the 10th letter of the English alphabet, as their numbering usually goes. The work on the ROM will start as soon as Google releases the source code, and all 37 something devices that were recently greeted with custom CM9 ROMs will be first in line to get CM10 as well. 

As for requirements, as long as you satisfy those for CyanogenMod 9, like 512MB of RAM and the like, you'll be covered. Pretty siginificant news, and we can start the betting process whether the CyanogenMod team will beat the manufacturers with a streamlined Jelly Bean ROM for all major devices before it hits the handsets officially from their makers. Here's the full scoop from the crew:
