Popular Android ROM CyanogenMod is finally leaving the release candidate phase starting this evening. According to the team, all devices that received a release candidate are eligible for 10.1 stable. Users can expect to see an update either later tonight, or when they wake up in the morning. Unfortunately, any devices that did not receive a release candidate are not expected to get the upgrade to CyanogenMod 10.1 stable.
Although they were included in the process, Tegra 2 powered devices, and many Samsung devices running the Exynos chipset, do not have a stable version yet. According to the official blog post, potential availability will be announced later in the week. Moving forward, the team will continue with business as usual, sticking to its M-release cycle, adding even more functionality, and features.
Recently, Privacy Guard was added to nightly versions. Using a method similar to what Google Chrome users are familiar with, users can run apps in “Incognito Mode”, preventing them from accessing personal data such as contacts, messages, location, or call logs. However, it’s worth mentioning that apps with root access can still access personal data.
Privacy Guard has not made its way into CyanogenMod 10.1 stable, though one could expect it to be available in the near future. If you haven’t configured update checks on your device, simply go to “System Settings”, “About Phone”, and “CyanogenMod updates”. From there, you can do a manual check to see if 10.1 stable has hit your device yet. As always, we recommend backing up your device before updating.
