LG G Flex Receives an Early CyanogenMod 11 Port

We’re all waiting for Google to deliver Android L and its source. It was announced just a few days ago, and as we already saw in the recently released Developer Preview, it’ll bring quite a few interesting goodies. But until then, most devices are running KitKat or earlier, and now one more device has received its first source-built KitKat port.

The device in question is none other than LG’s curvaceous phablet, the G Flex. It was released early November, and since then, developers haven’t had luck bringing up the device tree. Now after much effort, an alpha build is available. Thanks to XDA Recognized Developer PlayfulGod, who was involved in fixing KitKat on Galaxy Nexus, users have a chance to test out CyanogenMod on their devices.

This release is far from stable. It’s at a very early stage, and only a few things work. However, it’s a good first step, and hopefully the G Flex’s users will see more source-built ROMs soon.

If you own this curvy, self-healing phablet, make your way to the development thread to see the progress and try it on your own device.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
