Featured: CyanogenMod 10 Graces the Nexus 7 (and others)

Jelly Bean CyanogenMod 10

The developers at CyanogenMod and XDA must have their hands full. It seems like yesterday that we were beginning to see the first stable versions of CM9 roll out and now we're already seeing CM10 delivering KANG's to the Nexus 7 among a few select other devices. Though it's still in an alpha version, it offers up some unique add-ons  that we've all come to know and love from Cyanogen.

The features are slowly beginning to propagate into the Nexus 7 among others. CM10 also has KANG's showing up for the Transformer TF101, Transformer Prime, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and a few more. If memory serves me correctly, I saw a KANG pop up for the old-timer Sammy Fascinate recently.

What particularly excites me about this news is the rapid pace of development. I'm guessing that the bridge between ICS and Jelly Bean was much shorter than that between Gingerbread and ICS. With that said, I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of JB ROM's popping up for current ICS devices, even if the Carrier/Manufacturer tag-team takes its sweet time.


With the Butter Project and Google Now coming along with the updated ROM, I can't wait to join the party. Having the Nexus 7, I already get a sample but seeing what the enhancements can do with my daily drive HTC Sensation is exciting. I think we're finally entering the crossroads in mobile technology where the software is finally beginning to catch up with the hardware.

Writer --- I was born and raised in Kentucky and got my professional start in photojournalism there. I worked at various television stations around the country including Bowling Green, KY, Reno, NV, Knoxville, TN, and Charlotte, NC. I began working in the production environment while still in high school and ultimately followed his career for several awards including an Emmy among others. After leaving television in 2009, I started working in web development and graphic design while still longing to hold a camera once again.This opportunity came in the summer of 2009 when I shot a documentary in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I would go on to travel to Ireland that summer before relocating to Knoxville to pursue my career in design. Another chance to shoot a film in a devastated Haiti moved me back to Charlotte and I have been here since.
