Android 4.4 KitKat-based CM11 M5 Now Available for Supported Devices: Galaxy S3, Note 3, and HTC One Among Them

CM 11 M5

The folks at CyanogenMod have released another one of their Android 4.4.2-based CM11 Snapshots. Labeled CM11 M5, the new build supports devices like Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 3, HTC One, Galaxy S4 Mini, or Nexus 4, just to name a few.

Among others, CM11 M5 arrives with stability fixes that make the custom ROM more than capable of being used as a daily driver. CyanogenMod team also released a full changelog that is to big for us to cover, but you can find it on their official blog at this link.

The Android 4.4.2 KitKat-based CM11 M5 release brings bug fixes for Trebuchet launcher, increases the opacity of Volume Panel transparency, introduces Quckboot for supported devices, adds ethernet icon support to status bar, and patches improvements for Dialer, Stylus (where supported), Settings (Screen Color support), Nav bar, MultiSim, WhisperPush, and more.

As I was mentioning above CyanogenMod 11 M5 is only available for the supported devices, but, fortunately there are around 50 of them, including HTC One S, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, LG G2, Galaxy S3, Note 3, and more. You can find the full list of supported devices on CyanogenMod download page.

If you have a history of installing custom ROMs on your Android device you probably know the drill: download CM11 M5 for your device here along with KitKat Gapps from here, copy the ZIP files on your device, boot to recovery mode, flash the two aforementioned files, perform a factory reset, reboot, and voila, you are now running the KitKat-based CM11 M5. If you already have an older CM11 build installed on your device (in which case a factory reset is not required), you will be able to find the M5 update under Settings > About phone > CyanogenMod Updates.
