Another major update for Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for Galaxy Mini or Pop GT-S5570 is now available for download. Thanks to the courtesy of the developers at xda forums, the development of jelly bean based cyanogenmod 10 custom rom for galaxy mini is running at a fast pace. With this update, we've got some major changes such as partially working camera, full OpenGL support and other bug fixes. With all these changes, latest cyanogenmod 10 nightly comes with further improvements on performance and stability. Therefore, it stands as a must-flash update for those who are looking to enjoy latest android software on their galaxy mini or pop gt-s5570 smartphone.

As stated above, Cyanogenmod 10 for galaxy mini has improved a lot since it's original stage of development. With the latest nightly released on 2012/09/02, the camera works fine, however, without the support of video recording. XDA Senior Member, TheWhisp along with rohan007, erikcas and hrk is working hard to resolve this issue, but there's no saying when we can except it be working (if at all). Apart from this, other issues within the rom at this stage are very less and not the major ones. Native WiFi tethering and Native USB tethering are not working for now. However, using third party applications should help you get around this issue. Also, High Quality (HQ) video playback is not working properly. The developer said that it is due to the lack of OpenMax libraries from Qualcomm which was denied to be released by the corporation back few months. So, until the developers come up with some workaround, there's doubt if CM10 will be able to play HQ videos at all.

Cyanogenmod 10 20120831 for Samsung Galaxy Mini has fixes for various bugs that appeared in previous nightlies. Now, Native USB Mass Storage (UMS) is working just fine, so you don't need to worry about mounting your sdcard to your PC to copy contents to and from your mobile. Also, the developer made many other changes which are listed in the changelog below that I extracted from the developer's thread.
