CyanogenMod teases the first Android Jelly Bean CM10 running on the LG Optimus 4X HD (video)

CyanogenMod 10 brings customized Android Jelly Bean to your device, in a way that only the CM crew is capable of - streamlined and optimized as heck, so LG is definitely getting a boost here. Its new flagship is excellent in terms of compact design, screen and internals, but the manufacturer usually plays second fiddle to Samsung and HTC's flagships.
Thus seeing Android Jelly Bean running on LG's Optimus 4X HD flagship first, before any other top handset but Google's own Galaxy Nexus, is pretty telling for the attention it will be getting from modders from now on.
embedded updates to the Google Search app in Jelly Bean, but such a functional ROM so soon after the source code release makes us optimistic that all major devices will be getting JB via CM10 way before their official Android 4.1 updates.Not everything is working, though, as is usually the case with these early builds, and CM10 is having troubles with all the

"Thus seeing Android Jelly Bean running on LG's Optimus 4X HD flagship first, before any other top handset but Google's own Galaxy Nexus..." First of all, I'm very happy to see CyanogenMod 10 on any device, and it looks to be a pretty good build for such a short development time. However, the LG Optimus 4X HD is hardly the first flagship Android device, aside from the Galaxy Nexus, to receive Jelly Bean. There are Jelly Bean ports available for the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III, but they are ports pulled from the GSM Galaxy Nexus that was shown at Google I/O, not fully AOSP-based ROMs. That being said, the Optimus 4X HD is the first device to leak with CyanogenMod 10, which is an AOSP-based build of Android 4.1. I'm looking forward to CyanogenMod 10 to hit other devices, and I hope they support the Galaxy S III Developer Edition for Verizon.
