Google released Android 4.3 JWR66V for Nexus devices last night. Hours later, CyanogenMod team has started working on CM 10.2, next version of the popular custom ROM based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. In a recent update, CM team confirmed that they had merged all of AOSP 4.3 repositories into their Github and had indeed started working on CyanogenMod 10.2. Here is what CM team had to say:

First Update:

It begins

Second Update:

All AOSP repositories have been merged into our Github and branched to “cm-10.2”. Do not build it yet. There are a multitude of build errors that we are working through. We will put up another status update when everything has settled down.

It’s in very early stage and is not ready for release just yet. There is no ETA for CM10.2 but we can expect early builds to be available in few days. Nexus devices will be the first to get the update while the support for other devices will follow soon.

CM 10.2 will bring CyanogenMod with 4.3 Android to the devices that may not be officially supported to get the 4.3 update. Looking forward to run CM 10.2 with Android 4.3 on Galaxy S4 / S3 or HTC One devices? We’ll keep you updated, stay tuned!
