While most of the Android world has been focused on Android 4.4 KitKat recently, the reality is that there are many folks that will never see anything past Android 4.1 or 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The good news is that custom ROMs like CyanogenMod make it possible to update your device to a newer version of Android, even when the manufacturers have long since abandoned you. With that in mind, CyanogenMod 10.2 has now rolled out its first release candidate!

Although RCs aren’t as bug-free as stable builds, they are often more than good enough to be used as a daily driver, and the CM 10.1 RC1 will certainly provide a much more stable Jelly Bean 4.3 experience than what was found previously in the beta builds.

At the time of this writing, 16 devices have already received CM 10.2 RC1 support, including the Galaxy Note II, HTC One and Google Nexus S — just to name a few.


To see the full list of devices or to download CM 10.2 RC1, you’ll want to head on over to Cyanogenmod’s website.
