The CyanogenMod team has posted the Release Candidate 1 for CyanogenMod 10.1.3, which is now available to download for Android device owners interested in running a custom ROM based on Android 4.2.2.
CM 10.1.3 will be the team’s last play for CM 10.1, as it’s working on CM 10.2, which is based on Android 4.3, or Google’s latest Android version.
As, expected, CM 10.1.3 will include Android 4.2.2 goodies, and will support additional devices:
[quote qtext=”This release includes the Privacy Guard functionality and SELinux (permissive mode) previously only available in 10.1 nightlies. Also of note, we are green-lighting some devices for their first general release, including the HTC One family (m7), Galaxy S4 family (jflte), the Note 2 family (t0lte) and some of the new devices merged as part of our Developer Relations efforts. Lastly, per Koush’s wishes the Voice+ integration will not be present in this release, details on his post (see second Source link below).” qperson=”” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]
The CyanogenMod team advises users not to install CM 10.1.3 “on top of a 10.2 nightly or with 10.2 targeted add-ons,” as “bad things will happen.”
We’ll further add that while we keep you informed on custom ROM development on a regular basis, we’re not encouraging you to install such ROMs on your devices, no matter how experienced you are with Android. It’s entirely up to you to go down this route, and if you do, you’re going to be the only person responsible for whatever happens with your devices.
