The CyanogenMod team has launched the first CM11 KitKat Nightly builds for all the Google Nexus devices, the Galaxy Nexus and the latest models of Nexus 4, 5, 7 and 10. This is great news for users who want to get rid of the stock Google experience and try a modified one.
CM 11 KitKat Nightlies are based on the AOSP Android 4.4 KitKat. The CM team says that won’t offer any new support for bug reports, as there are very few bugs on the stock Android 4.4 and all problems that might appear will be related to all the new CM-based stuff they are adding with each CM 11 KitKat Nightly build launched.
At the moment only the Google Nexus smartphones and tablets are supported by CyanogenMod 11 Nightly, while all the other Non-Nexus models will receive their own variants soon. The download links for each device can be found at the end of this post.
If you do decide to update your Nexus phone or tablet with these CM 11 official Nightlies then you should use the latest version of your custom Recovery. Both CWM and TWRP are working with the flashing process, so you shouldn’t worry if the latest builds are installed.
There are seven devices with support for CM 11 Nightlies:
- smartphones: Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Samsung Galaxy Nexus
- tablets: 2012 and 2013 Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.
All the available builds can be found at the CyanogenMod’s download web page here.
At the moment, all these builds are based on Android 4.4. But, starting next week, we will see the new Android 4.4.1 firmware build being integrated with these releases.
