CyanogenMod 11 M builds were first available for some of the Nexus devices. Now, after some time, more devices get CyanogenMod 11 M builds that come with Android KitKat. And when we say more, we mean a total of 65 handsets that are getting builds. Among these lucky devices we are able to find the ones in the Samsung Galaxy S4 series, the ones in the HTC One series and more in the Nexus series. There are of course some devices from a lot of other producers so there is very good reason for you to go and check if your device is on the list on the download page. As always we should mention that we do not encourage you to install custom ROMs and that you are responsible for whatever happens with your device as a result of this. These releases are pretty stable so you should not experience a very high number of bugs or any kind of faults. Nevertheless the CyanogenMod 11 M releases are not as good as stable builds or releases that find themselves among release candidates. One should be able to deal with them if he had a little experience with previous CyanogenMod releases. In order to install this there are the usual steps that include having a custom recovery on your phone in case things go wrong and to still be able to aces the Play Store the Gapps will have to be flashed separately.
