CyanogenMod 10 version is on its way for Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) aspirants
The CyanogenMod Team is working on it’s own version of the Android 4.1 version (Jelly bean) and expects to release it soon
CyanogenMod Developers team as usual is not resting. People without a Jelly Bean update news for their devices now have a ray of hope in the form of CyanogenMod 10 (CyanogenMod’s version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean).
The development is in progress and involves an intergration of code from CyanogenMod 9. While the transition from ICS to Jelly Bean might not take a long duration due to minimal changes in both the Operating systems, but the changes required are significant. The CM Team has previously reported the following anticipated issues with the transition.
- Trebuchet might be messy to rebase onto JB.
- Theme Engine will be messy.
- SystemUI stuff will need to be restyled.
- Lockscreen stuff will need to be restyled.
Developer Ricardo Cerqueira states that the hardware integration has absolutely no issues. This was tested on the LG Optimus 4X HD and has been captured well in a video. The video reflects justifiable stability with a functional camera, sound, and calling capabilities.
One negative point is that the brand new Google Now search feature is not working, but that’s something that the CM team will take care shortly.
