[Update: Downloads Now Live!] CyanogenMod 11 Milestone 4 Released!
There are quite a few major players in the source-built custom ROM world nowadays, but undoubtedly the most prominent is still CyanogenMod. Having made a name for itself way back when on the G1, the CM team now officially supports a rather extensive list of devices, and has contributed a great deal to the Android community at large.
Nearly one month ago, the team reached Milestone 3 status for their Android 4.4 KitKat-based CyanogenMod 11. Now, the team has finished work on Milestone 4, which means that we’re just that much closer to CM11 Final.
The new release brings quite a few updates, including a tweaked recent apps panel for low end devices, various bug fixes, expanded profiles support, left-hand mode for the system navbar, a new Easter Egg, and much more. These changes are covered in greater detail on the CyanogenMod Blog.
Those looking to get in on the latest M4 action should head over to the CM Downloads link below. The builds are currently in the process of compiling, and should be available for your download pleasure as soon as they’re fresh out of the oven.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
