CyanogenMod 10.2 M1 released and builds are already hitting the servers
Shortly after the release of Android 4.4 KitKat, it was announced that the CyanogenMod 10.2 M1 version is set to be released as well. “With all the Android 4.4 hype, we haven’t forgotten about CM 10.2. Tonight the buildbots will focus their efforts on building and shipping out CyanogenMod 10.2 M1. Builds are already hitting the servers (please be patient, this will take a while). We are targeting over 70 devices for this initial M-release.”, explains the Cyano genMod team that will continue working on the 10.2 code branch in parallel to Android 4.4though they still haven’t made any particular decisions to what devices will make the leap to the KitKat code base and apparently there won’t be an information on the matter for a few weeks. In the meantime, the users can still enjoy the Android 4.3 and ‘look forward to additional functionality’ as the CyanogenMod moves forward to M2 and its eventual release.
As for the CyanogenMod 10.2 M1 release based on Android 4.3, it’s likely good enough for users to check it out prior to the officially stable versions that are coming soon, you can use the CyanogenMod updater in order to upgrade your CM 10.2 to the M1 release on your Android device and here is part of list with the most popular devices for that matter:
- Samsung Galaxy S4 (International, Verizon, US Cellular, T-Mobile US, Sprint, C Spire, Cricket, Canada and AT&T variants)

The CyanogenMod team also explained as their final note that “a lot of folks are reading into the “512mb” item on the release notes. No, this does not mean a sudden resurrection of older hardware, there are dependencies beyond the RAM (and CM has enforced that minimum since ICS).”
