Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Update: CyanogenMod 10.2 Nightlies Available For LG G2 And Nexus 7 LTE

UPDATE (10/25): The CyanogenMod 10.2 nightly for the Verizon LG G2 is now up and functional, as is the nightly for the AT&T LG G2. Download links below.

Several devices are now receiving the custom Android 4.3 treatment as CyanogenMod has announced CM 10.2 nightlies for the LG G2 smartphone and the Nexus 7 LTE tablet.

CyanogenMod 10.2 is currently available for the international unlocked LG G2 model. Support for the Verizon model was recently pulled in order to sort out issues with the Radio Interface Layer (RIL), a component necessary for phones to operate properly. The CM 10.2 nightly for the Verizon LG G2 is expected to be available again shortly.

The 2013 Nexus 7 LTE has also received nightly support for CyanogenMod 10.2 despite the tablet running a pure version of Android 4.3. Custom ROMs like CyanogenMod usually do the job of removing the OEM developer overlay and unnecessary bloatware features, which would not be present on the Nexus 7 LTE. However, CyanogenMod ROMs do include their own special features, so users who are fans of CyanogenMod on their smartphones may also enjoy it on their tablets.

Notably, Google’s next operating system Android 4.4 KitKat may release within a few days, and devices that are rooted and flashed with custom ROMs won’t have the automatic update ability seen on pure Android. Users should be completely certain before proceeding with installing a custom ROM.

When installing a custom ROM, devices should be rooted, bootloader-unlocked, and include a custom recovery ROM. Additionally, users will want to have the proper Gapps Zip file in order to install the Google Play Store and Google Services.

As always, users should also take caution when installing custom firmware onto their devices, keeping in mind that their warranties may be avoided. Backing up your device is recommended.
