Cyanogenmod 10.1 release candidate 1 builds go live on 45 handsets

CyanogenMod 10.1, one of the most popular Android ROMs, has been updated to its first release client version (RC1), and is now available for download on 45 different handsets.
May 9, 2013

Builds have been continually rolling out for CyanogenMod 10.1, in the form of nightly and M-releases, for quite a while, and after much hard work the custom ROM is finally considered stable on enough devices to move on up to the release candidate stage. RC is a term reserved for only the most stable of builds, marking it as suitable daily use without glitches and crashes.

Reaching the RC1 stage also means that these are some of the last updates that these devices are likely to see for Android 4.2.2. As a quote from the CyanogenMod blog puts it:

[quote qtext=”This will be one of (if not the last) milestone releases before a 10.1.0 is pushed out.” qperson=”” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]

So the team is probably quite close to pushing out a final release, which makes quite a bit of sense considering that a new Android version is rumoured to be appearing at Google I/O. The CyanogenMod team is known for pushing out stable, or finalised builds of their ROMs just before a new Android version shows up, in preparation for moving CyanogenMod onto the latest version of Android.

Anyway, the new RC1 builds have rolled out on 45 handset variants so far, so here’s the full list:
