CyanogenMod fans, rejoice. The team behind the Cid mascot has been hard at work to release the first CM ROMs based on the newly launched Android 4.3. As usual, it looks like CyanogenMod is far ahead of OEMs when it comes to delivering timely updates.

A few hours ago, the CM team announced in a Google Plus post the availability of the first nightly builds of CyanogenMod 10.2. Nightlies are already out for many devices, such as the Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 4, HTC One, many Samsung phones and tablets, and many Motorola devices. For the list of available nightlies, check out the official CM download page, get.cm.

CM devs say that, while all officially supported devices will eventually get the latest build, some “stragglers” may be late. Asking for ETAs is, as usual, frowned upon.

CM 10.2 brings all the goodies in the previous version, as well as the improvements and features brought by Android 4.3. To get the Google apps package, you’ll have to flash an Android 4.3 zip file.

As always when dealing with such things, proceed with caution and don’t forget to back up. Nightlies are cutting-edge through their nature, so expect some bugs. If you look for a daily driver, you should probably wait for a more stable release.
