[Video] CM10 Jelly Bean Running on a Galaxy S II Skyrocket

7

It has been a weird kind of day in the Cyanogen world. I kept seeing random posts about different devices running the Jelly Bean powered CM10. I believe I saw one on the Galaxy Tab 8.9, as well as seeing a video on CM10 running on the Motorola Defy. We have already posted about CM10 running on both the LG Optimus 4X, and the Transformer Prime. But I think the community would be more excited that CM10 was spotted running on the Galaxy S II Skyrocket. More of popular device, and it runs pretty well too. By well, I mean its booted up and touchscreen works, as well as the transitions are smooth, but I am sure it has got its other issues. I also saw a screenshot that mentioned that they got it on the original Galaxy S phone, which is is like WOW. Just gets more and more exciting guys. CM9 took forever to come out, but that only made it easier for CM10 to be released into the wild, and it will not be long until there are stable builds for us to play with. Check out the video below and let us know what you think.

Been an Android nerd since the G1 days. I believe I hacked and flashed that phone into dust. Currently sport a Nexus 5 sized bulge in my pocket, which I am absolutely loving. I also host and produce The ManDroid Show every week and love talking Android to whoever wants to talk about it. So let's talk!

    It should be known that the developer R4ins over at XDA (go hit his “Thanks button!!!) was the first to get a successful boot of JellyBean on the Skyrocket i727 and T989.

    List of working features

    Wifi
    Cellular Data
    Bluetooth
    GPS
    SMS
    Internal SD mounting
    Screenshots
    Root
    Busybox
    JellyBean Gapps
    More I am forgetting

    Phone calls can be made and received, but neither party can hear the other. Sound should be fixed soon.

    Sk8erwitskill (hit his thanks button too!!) is also making and uploading new builds with every new commit to the Cyanogenmod tree. Constant improvements. They can be found here.
