Update: Since this post was published, the Cyanogen team published some info on the changes coming to CM11 M12. There aren’t many features, as the release focuses on stability and security updates, including a fix for the POODLE vulnerability in SSLv3 that was recently discovered. Cyanogen’s blog post also mentions polish and improvements to the dual-SIM functionality.

Anyone that has ever rooted a phone  has at least heard the name “Cyanogen”, and anyone that is familiar with the CyanogenMod teams work already knows what to expect when updates start rolling out. Well it looks like today is flash day folks, so make your Nandroid backup and be sure your battery is charged, as CyanogenMod 11 M12 Snapshot is now available for download for most devices.

I actually shouldn’t say “most” devices, as it seems that pretty much every device is covered here, including:

  • Motorola Razr
  • Sony Xperia V
  • Sony Xperia Z Ultra
  • Sony Xperia Z Ultra (GPE)
  • Asus Transformer Pad TF701T
  • Asus Transformer Pad Infinity
  • Asus Transformer Pad TF300T
  • Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7″
  • Motorola Droid Bionic
  • HTC One Max

I may have missed a device or 2, but that should just about cover it. The update is still for KitKat so those hoping to get their hands on a Lollipop build will have to wait a little longer. As always, remember that there’s always a small risk when it comes to custom ROMs, so proceed at your own risk. To grab the latest snapshot release for your device, you’ll want to head on over to Cyanogenmod’s website.
