Cyanogen Mod Team Announces M-Series ROMs

Anyone that is looking to get a much wider experience of Cyanogen Mod are now in lick as the development team hast just announced a brand new series of Cyanogen Mod released called the “M-Series.” These experimental builds will be releasing on a monthly schedule, which is very similar to the experimental nightly builds released on a nightly schedule. The difference between the nightly and monthly builds is very simple — more emphasis on quality over their nightly quantity. The CyanogenMod team will very occasionally do a freeze of the codebase that will block any sort of new features in order to stabilize the newly updated ROM. This will be done until the build reaches its stable release phase, allowing for users to then be able to enjoy all of those new features that the CM team has put together. This is definitely a smart way to go, I think. It should definitely make things much easier on the Cyanogen Mod team as well.

Currently, the “M-Series” ROMs will only be available for a small amount of handsets. Don’t worry though — with the Cyanogen Mod team in charge, the list of enabled handsets will continue to grow. That said, you’ll still have a chance to see your device added to that last at some point. On the flip side, the Cyanogen Mod team is starting out with more handsets than you would expect:

  • Galaxy Nexus GSM (maguro)
  • Galaxy Nexus VZW (toro)
  • Galaxy Nexus Sprint (toroplus)
  • Galaxy S2 GT-I9100G (i9100g)
  • Galaxy S (galaxysmtd)
  • Galaxy S B (galaxysbmtd)
  • Captivate (captivatemtd)
  • Galaxy S3 Sprint (d2spr)
  • Galaxy S3 VZW (d2vzw)
  • Galaxy S3 AT&T (d2att)
  • Galaxy S3 TMO (d2tmo)
  • Galaxy S3 US Cellular (d2usc)
  • Nexus S (crespo)
  • Nexus S 4G (crespo4g)
  • Galaxy Note AT&T (quincyatt)
  • Google Nexus 7 (grouper)
  • Sony Xperia Acro S (hikari)
  • Sony Xperia S (nozomi)
