Yesterday we saw the roll out of the Android 4.1.2 update onto the open source project which then led to an over the air update to the Nexus 7 in certain regions. They have been pressed for time but the lads over at CyanogenMod have still managed to update their custom ROM to give the latest Google updates to Android.
The new CyanogenMod 10 nightly update offers several new features to those who prefer their custom ROMs. The most obvious update being that the update to Android 4.1.2 has been made. Whilst it does offer a few goodies I’ll explain more after the jump, don’t get too excited as the update doesn’t involve anything really substantial.
Most of the update consists of bug fixes and stability improvements to several different areas. One of the areas in Android 4.1.2 is the wireless network enterprise connection bug fix. There is also multiple tweaks to the browser, a change in the way the audio is handled as well as improvements in several other areas still, including support for landscape orientation for the home launcher on the Nexus 7.
The update is based solely on Android 4.1.2 and comes with the build number of JZ054K. Although CyanogenMod 10 users have been treated to a better home screen orientation with thanks to the Trebuchet Launcherit’s worth noting that this build still addresses a few issues with it and as well as adding a few extra goodies.
If you want to get in on the Jelly Bean goodness update, you can head over to the updater app which can be found within device settings. However if you have only just recently installed the CyanogenMod 10 custom ROM in the last few days then you can get the update by going Settings > About Phone > CyanogenMod Updates. For older CyanogenMod 10 users you can get your hands on the update from standard sources.
