Google Nexus S, one of the older devices that can still perform well, can now be updated to Android 4.2.1. This is not official, but through CyanogenMod's latest CM 10.1 M1 build, the first stable version so far. This will be updated once a month and it is only available for certain devices. Even though the latest official update for Nexus S is Android 4.1.2, this should not stop you from experimenting with 4.2.
The CyanogenMod Team was recently developing CM 10.1 nightly for Google Nexus S GT-I9020, and now it has launched their first stable version for Google Nexus S GT-I9020, CM 10.1 M-Series. Luckily, Google Nexus S GT-I9020 is one of the devices that can get the stable build.
