    CyanogenMod

    The CyanogenMod team has announced official support for eight new Android devices, six of which are Motorola handsets and two from Sammy.

    What could be better than getting official CyanogenMod support? Seven out of eight of these devices are in line for the Android 4.3-based CM10.2 code base – the exception being the C Spire version of the Galaxy S4.

    Here’s the a full list of the added phones, and their model numbers:

    • Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G (apexqtmo)
    • Samsung Galaxy S4 – C Spire (jfltecsp)
    • Motorola Atrix HD (mb886)
    • Motorola Photon Q – GSM (xt897)
    • Motorola Photon Q – CDMA (xt897c)
    • Motorola Droid Razr M (xt907)
    • Motorola Razr HD – GSM (xt925)
    • Motorola Droid Razr HD – CDMA (xt926)

    Is it just me, or does it seem a little funny that all six of these older Moto devices might end up with Android 4.3 (via Cyanogenmod) ahead of the newly announced Moto X? But I digress.

    Once these builds are live, you’ll be able to snag them by heading over to get.cm. From there you’ll have several choices, including whether to go with a nightly, experimental or stable build. According to the folks behind Cyanogenmod, this is just the first wave, so expect more additions in the near future!

      yet nexus devices don’t have 10.2,I wonder if investing money on cyanogenmod devices for the updates worth it after all,it’s a bit confusing

        Nobody has official CM 10.2 yet. Nexus devices (at least the 4) have had unofficial builds for days.

      No love for the Motorola Razr i :(
      Maybe they consider it already un-improveable. Haha.
      I wish they do support it in their next announcement. I’m just curious to know how they would improve it.

      FYI to the journalist: It’s not irony that CM supported Motorola devices get support first.

      You misused the concept there.

        Ironically, the post was edited to remove the irony. ;)

      My guess on reasoning for the lack of Moto X support is due to the proprietary gesture and voice-activated features (which are most likely not included in the open-source code). The same issue happened back in the days of the EVO 3D with the proprietary 3D driver that HTC used. Sometimes there’s a trade-off involved with the nifty extras that the manufacturer throws in.
