The international Samsung Galaxy S II — model I9100 — has this week received a CyanogenMod 10 preview that allows users who are fed up with TouchWiz to try out Jelly Bean as it was originally designed by Google — without any third-party modifications.
But before you rush off to install it, you need to be aware this is just a preview release, which means it’s a very, very, early build of CyanogenMod 10. With that said, it’s likely to be full of bugs and issues, could render your favorite apps and features unusable, and could even cause issues with your device.
It goes without saying, then, that you should not be installing this on your Galaxy S II if it’s your primary device. However, if you’ve just upgraded to the Galaxy S III and you have an old Galaxy S II kicking around, doing nothing, then it might be worth checking it out. But don’t say we didn’t warn you.
If you are taking the plunge, you can get your hands on the ROM and everything else you need over at the XDA Developers forum.
