Upgrading old Android devices to Cyanogenmod – marvelous!
I recently upgraded my Samsung Galaxy Tab (the original one) from the Overcome Experience ROM to Cyanogenmod 10. I liked the Overcome Experience – but the tablet was slow as molasses. That may be due to app creep, but I thought I’d give the “Project Butter” experience from Android Jelly Bean a try. I went with stock Cyanogenmod 10, rather than derivatives, because of the simplicity of doing so. And: it works like a *charm*. Fast. and the full (phone, I guess) Jelly Bean experience that I already have on the Asus TF300T and the Nexus 7 (neither of which runs Cyanogenmod, for now). Many thanks to the Cyanogenmod guys, and to the XDA folks who maintain “ROMs”, who between them make older devices work where the hardware manufacturers have abandoned them.
