A look at CyanogenMod 11 on the Nexus 5

The CyanogenMod team has been busy getting the Nexus 5 running CyanogenMod 11. A few days ago the first milestone along the path to a stable CyanogenMod 11 was released for the Nexus 5 and a few other devices. I didn’t have much luck with it. After a few hours of troubleshooting I finally gave up and moved along to the 12/09 and 12/10 Nightlies. Both have been working quite well, but they do have some rough edges and hiccups here and there. Those are to be expected since Nightlies are “not stable” by definition.

The version of Android that CM11 is based upon is the “new” Android 4.4.1 KitKat which was just released a few days ago, but the “new new” Android 4.4.2 hasn’t made it into the Nightlies just yet.

Enough with the formalities, hit play and see what’s inside CyanogenMod 11 on the Nexus 5!
