So, since last week, I’ve been updating my phone (Samsung Galaxy S Captivate) with the newest and latest experimental updates of CyanogenMod 10 (Android 4.1, code name Jelly Bean).
As expected, nightly builds are buggy. Very buggy. And unreliable. At first, they usually work, but then they progressively slow down, and become bloated. On top of that, the battery as been constantly getting drained in a matter of a few hours, whether I’m using the phone or not. It’s strange, but it seems to be getting better with each update.
Nevertheless, I continue to update. The latest CM9 RC (Release Candidate) 2 was very stable, and I’m fairly certain that not that much as changed between 4.0.4 and 4.1, besides minor UI changes, and the addition of Google Now’s app, the mute competitor to Apple’s Siri.
Thus, I’m fairly certain that as moders adjust CyanogenMod 10 for the Galaxy S1 progressively, it will work just as well as 4.0.4 did.
I’ll be keeping you posted.
