CyanogenMod team has recently rolled out their revolutionary unofficial ( of course unstable) android 4.2.1 project. This is the higher most update available for an android phone till date. Here you can download the latest CyanogenMod 10.1 for galaxy mini.
CyanogenMod team usually don’t care about low end devices like Samsung Galaxy Mini, Galaxy Y etc. In this situation, xda forums are the only place where we can get remodded CyanogenMod versions. As you can see, no low cost phones are listed in CM site.
This android 4.2.1 version is quite unstable as far as I used on my galaxy mini. Since this is an alpha release, we can expect more from the developers in the upcoming updates. This version update truly imitates the arrival of android 4.1.2. Because 4.1 version had many bugs in the alpha as well as beta stages.
We only got almost stable version of Android 4.1.x after many change logs and bug fixes. So let’s hope for the same scenario here.
-Display and touch screen (with multi touch)
-GPS & Network Location
-USB Mass Storage
-Video playback (Just in LQ, HQ laggy)
What’s not working?
-Native WiFi and USB tethering
-Languages does not show
-Some Graphic Issues (like YouTube or when you touch to show or hide toggle or in the clear button and maybe in somewhere else).
