[Update] CyanogenMod 10 Preview for the International Galaxy S II
It’s here! Are you an international Galaxy S II owner watching in slight jealousy as your peers are given official preview builds into the next version of CyanogenMod? If so, that’s understandable, as Jelly Bean certainly lives up to all of its buttery hype.
For those with short attention spans, the international Galaxy S II has already seen some Jelly Bean action, but that experimental release lacked much functionality, and many users simply prefer running builds based on CyanogenMod.
Luckily, XDA Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx of Team Hacksung fame has come to the rescue with an official preview build of CyanogenMod 10 for the device. Naturally, this is a preview build, and quite a bit is currently not working. As described by codeworkx himself:
ATTENTION: THIS IS JUST A PREVIEW. MAY CONTAIN A LOT OF BUGS!
In other words, don’t expect daily driver functionality out of this just quite yet. However, if you’re eager to see what’s next for CyanogenMod and Team Hacksung on the venerable Galaxy S II, by all means go and check this out.
Users looking to install the goods on their own device should head over to the ROM download and discussion thread. Developers looking to build the ROM from source and/or use it as a base for further modification can find the information they need in the development thread.
UPDATE: 25th July, I have been reading through the posts and it looks as if it’s very near to being a Daily Driver, (in other words everything is working).
I will be installing today so look for my review on this exciting ROM in a couple of days
