If you’re the owner of a Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and other Nexus devices, you’ll be happy to know that the latest version of CyanogenMod is now available for your device. I’m talking about CyanogenMod 11, that includes Android KitKat.


These are the devices that Google offers the AOSP code for and considering that CyanogenMod is based on that code, it was logical that it would come so soon. The team of developers behind it has tested the release on all Nexus devices and it appears to be quite stable. The M1 release is still a sort of beta, so you really should be sticking to official Google software if you don’t want to risk anything.

Right now the CyanogenMod team is hard at work to dissect the just arrived Android 4.4.1 update, preparing yet another update for their custom ROM based on it. The advantage of CyanogenMod over other ROMs is that it gives you more UI customization option and more control over the slate and handset settings. I should also mention that CyanogenMod doesn’t come with Play Store or the big Google apps preloaded, but you can get them from here.
