CyanogenMod 10.2 gets a stable release, focus now shifts to CM 11
The CyanogenMod team has been hard at work and the stable release for CyanogenMod 10.2 (based on Android 4.3) 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 (based on Android 4.4).

The team will of course continue with necessary hot-fixes and security patches for the CM 10.2 ROMs, but it has admitted that development is done for the software. The stable ROM has been released for a number of the most popular Android devices, including the Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S II, and Galaxy S 3. There are still a few more devices that received the Release Candidate, which will get the stable release like the Nexus 10 and Samsung Galaxy S4.

Now, the team will shift its focus to working on CyanogenMod 11, which has already been released as in alpha form for a couple devices. This means that the development on the software should speed up considerably, and get you all the KitKat that you deserve.

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

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...

Verizon Galaxy Note II has Exynos 4412 and there is CM available for it.

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.

ok, root the phone and be without warranty.

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.

Yea, reverting back to stock is SOOOO hard.
