CyanogenMod M2 is now available for download

CyanogenMod M2 is now available for download
Back in September, the CyanogenMod team announced the M-series – builds of the popular aftermarket ROM that are known to be stable enough for every day use. Has anyone tested them out yet? If not, now might be a good time as the second installment, known as the M2 release, is available for download.

The CyanogenMod M2, which is based on Android 4.1, can be flashed on a wide range of devices, including variants of the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S II, even the very first Galaxy S. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Sony Xperia S, and the Google Nexus 7 are also on the list. New smartphones are expected to be supported eventually. In case an M-series ROM isn't available for your handset, you can always try a nightly build, although it still might have a glitch or two.

Anyone who wishes to get the new M release can do so via CM Updater or ROM Manager, or just get it manually from the CyanogenMod download page. The CyanogenMod team is aiming to launch a new M release every month, so user feedback is greatly appreciated. Download links and more techy information are available at the source link below.

My fave ROM :) I remember when I installed CM7 on my Samsung Vibrant (SGS1 for T-mob) my Quadrant score jumped from 1200+ to 2700+. So I know magic is bound to happen once monster duals and quads get a taste of CM poison! *Xperia S please.....! :)

That sounds like another case of tweaked kernel "cheating" on the IO test in quadrant to inflate the score

I'll be honest with you, I'm not sure! :) It was blazing fast though, I never experienced lag with it. This happened around January of this year. I can't recall if I played demanding games on it, but browsing, navigating, was, as they say it, buttery smooth.
