CyanogenMod 10.1 Already Available for Galaxy S4 Users

Samsung's Galaxy S4 hasn't even been available for a month, but already users are able to ditch their stock install of Android with Samsung's TouchWiz user interface and exchange it for something a little cleaner.


That's right, CyanogenMod, one of the most popular custom ROMs among Android users is already available for the Galaxy S4. CyanogenMod's Steve Kondik has revealed that CyanogenMod 10.1 has been ported to the T-Mobile Galaxy S4 (SGH-M919) and will be ported to other models once the CyanogenMod team gets a hold of the hardware.

"The first nightlies will go off tonight," Steve wrote on his Google+ page on Friday. "There are a few rough edges still, but will be ironed out in short order and you should be able to use it as your daily driver without serious issues. The touchscreen on this device should support Android's hover events," he added. "I'm looking forward to see what the community can come up with using this new feature!"

The Galaxy S4 packs a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED PenTile display, either an octa-core Exynos 5 or quad-core Snapdragon CPU (depending on the region in which you're buying the device), 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel camera up front, 16GB or 32GB of storage, and a 2,600mAh battery.
