CyanogenMod revealed some details about Jelly Bean and CM10

6 July, 2012 Android


With the release of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, CyanogenMod had provides some details about when they will be releasing an update to CyanogenMod. CyanogenMod team has taken to Google+ and although they did not provide an ETA for the update, they did provide a few details about the update itself.




The next update, as you may have guessed, will be called CM10, keeping with the tradition of giving the update the same number as the position of the alphabet of the Android version is named after (Jelly Bean). Here is the Official Announcement:



"...On Jelly Bean

Unless you have been internet deprived lately, you are aware that Android 4.1 aka Jelly Bean (JB) is due out in the coming weeks. Which inevitably leads to the question: How does this affect me CyanogenMod?

Now, to preface this, we do not have our hands on the source code, and things in this post may change dependent on analysis of the code first hand and the impacts. That said, we do have a general understanding of the changes and what we can expect, and this post serves to highlight the key changes.

CyanogenMod Next

Many have asked whether JB will be CM9.1 or CM10. Keeping with the pattern thus far, every newly named AOSP update results in a bump to the CM major version. This has the added benefit of fitting into the pattern of [insert codename position in the english alphabet] = CM version. Examples being: G is the 7th letter thus CM7, I is the 9th letter thus CM9 and J = 10.

I can't believe its not Butter

The ‘Project Butter' enhancements to Android are much anticipated and should not be a huge pain to merge. We anticipate some breakage in existing libs but nothing that the reference board devices or some hackery won't overcome. Essentially, if your device met our criteria for CM9 (512mb RAM, etc) and is already supported, then you should be in line for CM10. There may be some added headaches around hwcomposer, but we'll cross that bridge when we get source.


When it's ready... "
