The tenth build of the CyanongenMod custom ROM has already been previewed on a couple popular Android devices including the Google Nexus 7 tablet and Samsung’s Galaxy Note. The time has now come for Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone to get a feel of the CyanogenMod 10 custom ROM.
Brint Kriebel from CyanongenMod is the one who has brought out this CM 10 preview and this is what he has posted on his Google+ profile page.
“Since all the cool kids are doing it, I’m releasing a preview CM10 build for my device – the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (toro). I’m sure you’ve seen the other CM10 build disclaimers: this is not a release build, please do not file bugs on this, etc., etc.; all of that applies here as well.
Even so, +CyanogenMod 10 has been the daily driver on my phone for the last couple of weeks now. A lot (but not all) of the CM9 features are in place, and hardware support (camera, data, nfc, etc.) should all be working.
If coming from any other ROM (including CM9), a full wipe/factory reset is highly recommended. From CM9, you can try a non-wipe upgrade, but that has certainly not been tested to any extent.

I accidentally changed the build part way through the day, hence the two MD5s. No major updates or reason to update, just re-did the build and forgot it would overwrite.”
While we have been teased by these CyanogenMod 10 previews earlier, those of us who are still wary of those disclaimers would love to get our hands on the release build of the custom ROM at the earliest.
So are you gonna give this pre release version of CM 10 a try on your Nexus device?
