CyanogenMod 10.2 ( Android 4.3) For Samsung Galaxy Mini 2

The development for the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 aka Jena has really accelerated in the recent past mainly due to the great work put forth by xda Recognized Developer TheWhisp who had made similar contributions to its predecessor, the galaxy mini. Now with the release of Beta 1 of Cyanogenmod 10.2 builds the development just seems to get better and better. Almost all bugs are fixed except the Camera and Camcorder ( use 3rd party apps for them). The ROM is real smooth and the 4.3 JB features are a real treat to use. So, why don’t you try it for yourself. Here are the screenshots, changelog and flashing instructions…
