So Cyanogen hasn’t abandoned CyanogenMod 10.1. That’s good because that is the only version that is usable on my Samsung Galaxy S3 4G (GT-i9305).. CM 10.2 is way to buggy. Maybe this Release Candidate of CM 10.1 fixes some annoying bugs like audio recording is distorted and only in one channel, SD card mounting and some other things. I really hope so, because otherwise I need to move back to the dreadful TouchWiz…
With our focus shifting to CM 10.2 we mentioned that we would part ways with CM 10.1?s code branch via a final 10.1.3 release. The code in CM 10.1.2 was frozen in May, and since then we have included numerous bug fixes, features, and even devices. Today, we are starting the Release Candidate phase for CyanogenMod 10.1.3, based on Android 4.2.2
This release includes the Privacy Guard functionality and SELinux (permissive mode) previously only available in 10.1 nightlies. Also of note, we are green-lighting some devices for their first general release, including the HTC One family (m7), Galaxy S4 family (jflte), the Note 2 family (t0lte) and some of the new devices merged as part of our Developer Relations efforts. Lastly, per Koush’s wishes the Voice+ integration will not be present in this release, details on his post.
