The CyanogenMod 10 preview builds continue to trickle in, with Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus being the latest Android device to run a Jelly Bean-based preview of CM10.

Just like in any similar cases with other devices – and we’ve seen CM10 available for the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S2 or Nexus 7 to name just a few – this is an early CM10 version for the Galaxy Nexus available from Verizon. CyanogenMod developer Brint Kriebel posted more details on Google+ regarding this early CM10 build:

Since all the cool kids are doing it, I’m releasing a preview CM10 build for my device – the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (toro). I’m sure you’ve seen the other CM10 build disclaimers: this is not a release build, please do not file bugs on this, etc., etc.; all of that applies here as well.

Even so, +CyanogenMod 10 has been the daily driver on my phone for the last couple of weeks now. A lot (but not all) of the CM9 features are in place, and hardware support (camera, data, nfc, etc.) should all be working.

If coming from any other ROM (including CM9), a full wipe/factory reset is highly recommended. From CM9, you can try a non-wipe upgrade, but that has certainly not been tested to any extent.

We’ll remind you that we’re not encouraging you to install unofficial Android ROMs on your devices, and should you choose to go down this path, you’re going to be the only person responsible for any unwanted consequences.

    Been running it for almost two weeks. CM10 is great :) Especially now with power toggles working!

  • I’ve been running it for 24 hours. Amazing features FOR SURE! Battery life is not as bad as some people are saying it to be. However its not a daily driver. Fun to play with and many amazing new features that I LOVE!!! I can’t wait until a stable release or the actual release is out!

    Can’t see how it can’t be used as a daily driver. No bugs I can see so far. Faster, smoother, and stable!
