Ever since Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was officially announced, many Android enthusiasts turned to CyanogenMod and other developers in order to find out when a custom ROM based on Android 4.1 would be available for their device.

Today, CyanogenMod has publicly confirmed via its Google+ page that Android 4.1 will be known as CM10.  Android 4.0 was CM9 and Android 2.3 was CM7.  Now, the CyanogenMod team is interested in producing a stable CM9 mod and leaving it at that.  CM7 and CM10 will be the only mods being supported once the stable CM9 is achieved.

The reasoning here is that any device with CM9 at this time will almost be guaranteed a CM10 mod when it is available.  Some devices in the market today have hardware limitations that render it incapable to operate anything higher than CM7.

Now, the ETA for CM10 is unknown.  CM10 only offers that it will be ready “when it’s ready.”  If your device is rooted and running a custom ROM of CM9, then it is only a matter of time before CM10 is ready to roll-out to your device.
