CyanogenMod 11 milestone build arrives early on Nexus devices


It’s been merely three days since the CyanogenMod team announced that work has begun on CyanogenMod 11 (CM11), the latest iteration of the popular custom ROM that will be based on Android 4.4 KitKat, and the team has already delivered the first milestone build for Nexus devices, namely the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (all versions) and the Nexus 10. The quick release of the milestone build is because the latest Nexus devices are not expected to have too many issues, and the bug reports for CM 11 for these devices will be used to tweak and improve CM 11 releases for other devices.

For the Galaxy Nexus, which Google evilly decided to drop from Android 4.4 support, nightly builds will be released in the near future, though bug reports won’t be possible for these as is the case with nightlies. The M1 builds are available for download at the CM downloads site, though at the moment it is suggested users use ClockworkMod recovery to flash them. Keep in mind that even though these are milestone builds, a few issues might be present (mainly those introduced by the customization the dev team has incorporated), though that shouldn’t stop them from being good enough for use as daily drivers.
