The CyanogenMod team announced the release of nightly builds for two popular devices, the LG G2 and the Nexus 7 LTE.
The LG G2 is a mixed bag: on one hand, you have top-notch specifications and excellent hardware; on the other, the software, which many critics have singled out as the phone’s main problem. If you’re not satisfied with LG’s Optimus UI implementation on your G2, the good news is that you can now move to a cleaner experience, via CyanogenMod. The team behind the popular ROM just released the CM 10.2 nightly build for the international unlocked version of the G2. The CM devs also released the same build for the Verizon G2, but pulled it back due to unexpected problems. Still, a working release can’t be very far.
The choice is less clear with the Nexus 7 LTE, which runs stock Android, in its purest Google approved form. If you’re willing to say goodbye to fast updates just before the release of Android 4.4, the CyanogenMod team has a CM 10.2 nightly build waiting for you.
CM 10.2 is based on Android 4.3, and brings a slew of improvements and bug fixes over the previous version, including Bluetooth LE support and OpenGL ES 3.0 support. As always when dealing with non-stable builds, proceed with caution and know that issues are bound to happen. You’ll also need to secure your correct Google Apps package, but we guess that’s not problem if you read so far.
