Stable builds of CyanogenMod 10.2, the last CM release based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, are now rolling out for supported devices.

The stable build of CyanogenMod 10.2 is the last major release for CM before the team switches over to work on CyanogenMod 11. The team will continue to provide hot-fixes and security updates for CM 10.2 as needed going forward but the ROM won’t see any major new features added until the next version number. Every device that received a build for RC1 of CM 10.2 will get a stable build. The device list includes every recent Nexus device as well as most high-end or flagship smartphones released in the past 18 months or so.

With the stable release of CM 10.2, the team will now focus on on CyanogenMod 11, which will bring Android 4.4 KitKat features to the ROM. Nightly builds of that ROM should come sometime soon, but until then nightlies of CM 10.2 will continue for those who like to live on the bleeding edge. With the move to CM 11, CyanogenMod will also retire the nightly builds of Ice Cream Sandwich-based branches of CM.

Do you use CyanogenMod on your device? Are you excited for the impending release of CM 11?

    I like CM very much but OmniRom is now what I’ll have on my Note and it is working great so far.

          Any bugs??
          And how’s the battery backup?

            Well bugs are always there in nightlies but there is certainly a big difference between nightly 12 November, the first one and the current one I’m on which is 04 December. The thread on XDA has all sorts of users always finding new bugs. But as it stands its definitely a stable build. At least I haven’t encountered any force closes yet on anything.
            Battery has always been bad on Note 1. I get on average 2 hours of screen time and a full day usage on a 100% charge. I would say the only thing that makes me want to upgrade is battery. Other than that the G Note is a solid phone with OmniROM :)
