Owners of all versions of the Nexus 7, the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 10 — though they have to be “actively AOSP-supported Nexus devices” — can get a taste of KitKat done the CyanogenMod-way. Today, the team has released a “Milestone 1” version of CyanogenMod 11, instead of going the old, regular, nightlies-way.
This is possible, as the team puts it, because “the AOSP-supported Nexus devices should have minimal to no device specific issues (as their hardware code comes mostly from Google)”. Devices have been tested and bugs, should there be any, will most likely refer to the changes the team has put in place. As far as non-Nexus devices are concerned (including the Galaxy Nexus, which was left out by Google from the KitKat party), nightlies of CM 11 will be enabled soon.
