The T-Mobile Galaxy Note has had a rough life. It was released on T-Mobile on August 9th, 2012 only to get the ax just a few weeks later. Presumably, it is because of the impending release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Even so, a decent number of people bought Samsung’s most popular phablet before it was removed from shelves. Those customers need love too. That’s why the CyanogenMod Team has begun releasing CyanogenMod 10 nightlies.
In case you’re unfamiliar with what nightlies are, they are experimental builds that are released every day –or every couple days– that help test new features and bug fixes. The CyanogenMod team has been using them for a very long time to let their fans run CyanogenMod without having to wait for a stable release.
This is not to say that the nightlies may be unusable, as they are actually quite stable. However, due to the bleeding edge nature of their releases, there’s very likely some bugs you’d find in a nightly that you wouldn’t find in a stable release.
If you take a little trip over to the official CyanogenMod website, you’ll be able to find the download. This is a very new addition so there is only one nightly to choose from currently. T-Mobile Galaxy Note owners can expect that number to grow as days go by and new nightlies are released. You will also need the official Google Apps –commonly known as GAPPS– which you can find here.
It really is too bad that the Galaxy Note went down seemingly as soon as it came for T-Mobile customers. The now iconic phablet has been a hit worldwide, but T-Mobile is probably doing the smart thing waiting for the Galaxy Note 2 to drop. Even so, the original Galaxy Note would’ve looked nice on T-Mobile Magenta Deal Days promotion. T-Mobile Note owners, are you going to give the official CyanogenMod 10 a shot?
