Update Your Google Nexus One With CM 10.1 Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean ROM

Being a trendsetter is a thing but being the first, is something special. The first Google phone that got tagged under the ‘Nexus’ moniker was the Google Nexus One. Built by HTC which has been known for it’s zero compromise build quality standards, the Google Nexus One was amongst the most gifted handsets and boasted a top notch chipset and configuration for it’s time. Everyone knows the true story behind the huge fan base of Google’s Nexus brand and even after being dumped by it’s family, these devices find their second home @XDA and have also been evergreen performers at the forums. Google might have thought of it’s first Nexus device to be old enough  to be taken out of the compatibility list for the latest builds of the Android OS but we have this freshly baked CM 10.1 based Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean ROM up and ready to be flashed onto your Google Nexus Ones!
