Many phones out there will never officially get kit kat. That’s when you’re left with digging around the development community to find a suitable ROM to flash to your device after rooting so that you can try to keep up with the newest software. Cyanogenmod is easily one of the best ROMs out there, and now after many many nights of hard work and dedication, the CM team(and us here at android headlines) are proud to let you know that nightlies for Cyanogenmod 11 have begun for a fairly long list of phones. Its important to remember though that not all of the phones or devices on the list are readily available to download just yet, but they will be soon and the CM team is working hard to bring us all their next ROM so we just have to be patient.
Cyanogenmod 11 is the next iteration of probably the most popular ROM for flashers, and is based off of Android 4.4 kit kat. We previously wrote about the AOSP-supported nexus Devices that were able to flash the M1 release of CM11 starting last night, and now some other phones are going to get their taste as well. If your phone is in the list, be sure to backup your stuff and check for an available download then flash away.
In addition to all AOSP-supported Nexus devices, CM11 nightlies are ready to download for the Sony xperia z, both sprint and verizon versions of the Galaxy Nexus, the galaxy note II(gsm LTE), the superior, the galaxy s II skyrocket, the galaxy s 4 mini international and 3G version, the sony xperia tablet z(both versions), the international version of the Galaxy s III, multiple variants of the HTC One (m7att, m7spr, m7tmo, m7ul) and LG G2 (d800, d801, d802, and the Google edition Galaxy Nexus(maguro). The full list of devices that will have it available now or are going to have it is as follows, apexqtmo, crespo, d800, d801, d802, deb, dlx, dogo, e975, e980, evita, exhilarate, flo, galaxysbmtd, galaxysmtd, grouper, hammerhead, hercules, i9300, m7att, m7spr, m7tmo, m7ul, m7vzw, maguro, mako, manta, mb886, mint, odin, pollux, pollux_windy, serrano3gxx, serranoltexx, superior, t0lte (Int’l), tilapia, toroplus, toro, tsubasa, ville, xt897, xt897c, xt907, xt925, xt926, yuga
While there are many phones and devices that don’t have a ready nightly build of CM11 just yet, the list that is ready is a good start. If you saw your device listed above, you can grab the available downloads from the CM page and just scroll down the list to find your device. As always before flashing anything, make sure you’re rooted, and bootloader unlocked, with a custom recovery before you try to load on a ROM. You assume any responsibility and risks associated with these processes and no one else is to blame if something goes wrong and your device ends up as nothing more than a paper weight. That being said, happy flashing guys and gals!
