For those of you hardcore CyanogenMOD fans, CM10 ROM “STABLE” is here for your rooted Galaxy S3! If you have a U.S. or Canadian Galaxy S3 (AT&T/Verizon/Sprint/T-Mobile/US Cellular/Metro PCS/Rogers/Etc) you are in luck as you can try the latest CM10 ROM that comes with the latest Android 4.1.2 and lots of goodies you will not regret flashing.
UPDATE: Nov. 13th 2012 – CM10 “STABLE” just released!
First and foremost, you can adjust the homescreen and your app drawer easily to fit many more apps on top of being able to make folders easily by dragging and droppin’ them.
For grid size in Homescreen settings, I recommend about 6×7 for the maximum apps you can fit nicely.
You can also take advantage of the fact that you can enable widget resize for all widgets. Normally, a Facebook widget isn’t resizable but with CM10 ROM I am able to resize it against my phone’s will. (I am your MASTER PHONE!)
For lock screen, you will find a bunch of creative options including weather/calendar widgets and up to 4 shortcuts of your choice.
My lockscreen looks the way it should, weather instant and my calendar for the next whole week being pulled from my GMail calendar automatically.
There’s also an interesting “slide to control brightness” feature, I find it handy and cool.
With “Brightness control” ON, you can easily change the brightness of you screen at any time by sliding the top part of your phone on the notification drawer.
Also, you can enable and customize Power widget in Notification drawer settings. This is basically customizable toggles on your notification drawer. You have endless combinations of toggles to choose/customize from, very neat.
I put in an LTE toggle and even added media buttons so I can easily switch to 3G or turn off my Pandora/Music app easily. FYI, the LTE toggle works well for switching from 4G LTE to 3G but not vice-versa.
If you have trouble getting back to 4G LTE after using the toggle button, simply choose “LTE/CDMA/EvDo” in Mobile network settings for 4G LTE Verizon or AT&T. AT&T should say “LTE/GSM/HSPA” instead.
You can also customize the hardware keys to your liking.
The biggest change with M2 is the Display menu, you have more options like “Automatic backlight”, “Notification Light”, and even “Battery Light”.
“Notification Light” setting is my favorite of them all, you can have different LED colors for all of your apps, easily customizable by color and duration of LED.
And if you are worried about burst mode in CM10, with M2 you do have that option!
Lastly but not least, Android 4.1.2 brings you landscape mode for your homescreen and lockscreens. With CM10 M2, you can take it to a new level and view your homescreen/lockscreen in every angle possible.
Overall, many improvements have impressed me on the new CM10 M2. Many bugs you may have complained may be totally gone or improved vastly with the new version so if you are a CyanogenMod fan, flash this latest stable M2 and let me know what you think. I think you will like it a LOT.

To install, make sure you have a CWM Recovery (if you don’t, install using ROM Manager or use manual install method) first. Then re-boot into recovery, do wipe data/factory reset (no need if you are coming from CM10 ROM btw), install ROM, install Gapps, wipe cache, and reboot.
*Note – There’s two Gapps, one for Android 4.2 or Android 4.1.2, you can use either.
Q: I can’t install ROM, I am getting Status 7 error in CWM!
A: See install notes above!
