ASUS Nexus 7 gets official CyanogenMod 10.1 builds with custom notification toggles

nexus 7 cm 10.1 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

Ever since I got my LG Nexus 4, I haven’t been using my Nexus 7 nearly as much. Of course, this makes perfect sense, because the Nexus 4 is the newer gadget, and the Nexus 7 hasn’t really had anything exciting going on recently. However, I did get out the Nexus 7 over the weekend to update to the just released CyanogenMod 10.1 nightly builds for the device, which are based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Just like Android 4.2, CyanogenMod 10.1 is a fairly small upgrade from the previous CyanogenMod 10 builds. There are a few new features, though, including Google’s speed and smoothness improvements, new CM customized notification toggles, and the upgraded lockscreen widgets, clock, stopwatch, and timer. There are some compatibility problems with CM’s tweaks to the clock app, so it is suggested that you clear the data for the “Clock” app in the settings menu to prevent any unexpected problems. (It’s never a good thing when your alarm doesn’t go off in the morning.)

As usual, even in nightly form, these CM10.1 builds are quite stable and run very well. I’ve always recommended CyanogenMod as one of the best custom ROMs, and version 10.1 on the Nexus 7 is no exception. The changes may be fairly minor as I noted before rooting the device, but CyanogenMod still manages to make a good device even better.
