Hot on the heels of the huge number of official CyanogenMod 11 nightly releases which have gone live since the beginning of the month, comes a new batch of snapshot M3 releases for CyanogenMod’s KitKat 4.4 ROM.
CyanogenMod’s naming system can seem a little confusing at times, so here’s the breakdown. Snapshots (M builds) are completed roughly once a month, have undergone plenty of testing and patching, and are considered to be stable and pretty much feature complete. In other words, snapshot builds are deemed suitable for general installation, but lack the final polish needed to be considered a release candidate. The M simply refers to the version number of the snapshot.
Nightly builds, on the other hand, are constantly being revised and updated in order to patch out bugs. They’re considered functional, but users are likely to encounter small problems, at least, at some point.
Here is the list of devices with snapshot M3 builds available, as of the time of writing, complete with download links:
You can also find the full list of M3 builds here, just in case any more are added over the coming days.
If you’re keen to try out the latest builds of CyanogenMod 11, here’s a link to the updated GAPPS files as well. Enjoy.

Thanks for the links. Glad my 2+ year old gs2 still included.
I can’t believe the original Galaxy S is still in there. The little phone that just wouldn’t quit. :)
Well I’m happy it didn’t and well that is hint for Samsung – trying to make Android version a phone “feature” will in the long run hurt your sales and well the hardware isn’t also the best one at the moment (Sony and LG are already better in some things).
Yes!, the SII won’tgo anywere soon, back in 2011 it was a Beast, but f you look at it’s specs they are similar to a mid-high end phone, so i spect seeing more CM and other ROMS Builds for this phone
The last nightly I used (about 2 weeks back) had serious issues with Bluetooth pairing – it could take up to 2 minutes to connect to a device, then if you disconnected and tried to connect to something else you’d pretty much end up having to restart the phone. Also the issue where if you plug the phone into a dock, Play Music wouldn’t produce any output unless you Force Stop the app then clear cache has been there for months. Other than those issues it is actually pretty good.
