CyanogenMod 10 ROMs based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean are found virtually everywhere as new Android devices are constantly being added to the list. This new update from the CyanogenMod development team comes in the form of a modification that will change the old boot animation found on most CM10 ROMs. If you have recently flashed CM7 or CM9 ROMs before, then you’re probably familiar with the boot animations that usually show the CyanogenMod mascot in blue named Cid.
This MOD replaces the animation, and replaces it with a clean logo of CyanogenMod, which is more appealing and best describes the CyanogenMod Team. The MOD is only available for the Samsung Galaxy S2 [...]
You just have to love the things created by the hardworking developers in the XDA Developers community because they’re continuously improving our lives and end-user experience. Take, for instance, what XDA Developers member vicino has done to make the Recent Apps switcher look and function better on the Galaxy Nexus.

As quickly as Samsung upgraded the international version of the Galaxy Nexus phone to Android 4.1, we obviously hoped that the Sprint and Verizon branded models were to follow suit not long after. That hasn’t quite happened, unfortunately, and both phones are still waiting to officially join the Jelly Bean fun.
Sprint and Big Red have both promised to roll out the update in a matter of weeks, but if you feel that you simply can’t wait anymore, you do have a few options to help you perform the upgrade yourselves.
