Nexus 7

Nexus 7, the tablet made by Google is now able to get CM 10.1 M1 build, which can be used as stable, daily ROM. Using Android 4.2.1 you will get more benefits from it than using a stock ROM, of course with the risks of losing your warranty. 

The CyanogenMod Team was recently developing CM 10.1 nightly for Nexus 7, and now it has launched their first stable version for Nexus 7, CM 10.1 M-Series. Luckily, Nexus 7 is one of the devices that can get the stable build.

CM 10.1 M-series for Nexus 7 is based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. For the installation we will use  cm-10.1-20130121-EXPERIMENTAL-tilapia-M1.zip which is a zip file and CWM Recovery.
