LG G2, HTC One, Galaxy S3 CyanogenMod 11 (Android 4.4 KitKat) nightlies available
CyanogenMod 11 M1 builds are already available for Nexus devices, but these aren’t the only smartphones and tablets getting an Android 4.4 KitKat-based custom ROM.
CM11 nightly builds are also available for a variety of devices including current and former flagship Android handsets. The list includes multiple LG G2 version (D800, D801 and D802) as well as various HTC One models (m7att, m7spr, m7tmo, m7ul). Furthermore, the international Galaxy S3 (I9300) – which is officially receiving the Android 4.3 update as we speak – is also getting its own CM11 nightly ROM. On top of these, various other Android devices are listed as supported for CM11 (see Source link below).
Many custom Android developers are moving fast to releasing Android 4.4-based versions of their ROMs, while Google is already moving to Android 4.4.1 for its Nexus devices. Meanwhile, Motorola and HTC are the only companies to have released KitKat builds for some of their flagships, with others still working on the updates.
A future round of CM11 nightlies will include Android 4.4.1 goodies as well, the CyanogenMod team revealed.
That said, it doesn’t mean we’re encouraging you to update to the latest Android version by installing a custom ROM, a procedure that will void the warranty of your device. Make sure you understand what such procedures mean before going forward with them and follow closely available installation instructions.
