Samsung Galaxy S4 already gets CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies

0. phoneArena posted on 05 May 2013, 10:50

For a time, it was unclear that CyanogenMod would even support the new Samsung Galaxy S4, but that's when Steve Kondik stepped in. Kondik founded CyanogenMod, and worked at Samsung for a while, leaving the company about one month ago. Kondik went back to CyanogenMod after leaving Samsung, and he has already finished the first nightly builds for some Galaxy S4 models...

Can't wait until my GS4 comes in the mail soon. Root it, install CM10 and over clock the CPU to make it fly! :)

The S4 is already having overheating problems as reported by many S4 owners, especially during any moderate to intensive use of the CPU/GPU (gaming, multitasking, etc). If you overclock your S4, it will most likely burn up its insides and your hands as well. But most importantly, WHY would want to overclock your S4?? It will easily run any of the most demanding apps and games that current exist. It doesn't make any sense to push the hardware when there aren't any ways to notice the difference, other than comparing the benchmarks with your friends during your lunch time in the playground. Pointless.

1. I can do whatever I want to my phone
2. The same way everyone said the GS3 overheats when mine never has and I've been having mine since week 1?
3. If it does overheat, I'll set it back.

The battery life is good, if it has overheating/defective screen they would probably replace it. I would wait till mid to end may for a later batch of them, that would gurantee less chance of a defect.

My battery life has been decent, but not great. I had to turn off all the eye tracking features to boost it, but it does make it through a day with moderate to heavy use.

As for overheating, it has gotten warm a couple of times, but nothing extreme. I still prefer the One, overall.

You could always buy an extended battery too if the 2600 mah isn't enough. Its thin enough you shouldn't mind the extra bulk that much.

It's not bad enough that I need one of those. I hated the extended battery on my N1 and N2, so an external pack would be the way for me if I ever felt like I was going to have a hard time finishing days.

Overall, it is better in some ways than I thought it would be, slightly worse in others, but still not a bad upgrade from the S3. If i was an S3 owner with an upgrade who wanted the removable battery and microSD card, this handset would be worth it. Just buying it outright like I did, I would recommend trying the S4, the One, and the OG Pro to see which you prefer.

Yup! People overreact to these things. All phones have problems (Antenna-gate problem purple haze/blur, overheating, etc...) The Galaxy S4 is a good phone and the HTC One is a good phone as well. Please stop all the arguing..... (This isn't directed at you, this is for others that keep fighting in every forums like these).

The U.S. versions haven't been unlocked yet, that I know of, but I haven't checked the last few days.

What was all that trash talk by Samsung haters about GS4 not getting any dev support again??? Haha!

It's from Haters. Ironically CM Dev support came to GS4 first than to the HTC One. The Official CM10 version for the HTC One has yet to arrive.
