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.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
