Official CyanogenMod 11 Nightlies Arrive on the HTC One M8 and Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 WiFi; Note 8.0 LTE and Sprint Galaxy S5 Coming Soon

Although there are dozens of great source-built, AOSP-derived custom ROMs available for the choosing, the most popular option is still undoubtedly the first large-scale project of its kind: CyanogenMod. Because of this, it’s always quite exciting when official CyanogenMod support is extended to any particular device. Now we’re happy to share that official support has been added for two new devices, with two more on the way.

First up, we have CyanogenMod nightlies for the HTC One M8 (2014). Official support for the M8 actually began two days ago, and the buildbot has been chugging away ever since, offering three publicly available nightly builds to date. As described on CyanogenMod’s Google+ announcement post, these “m8″ builds are compatible with the GSM, Sprint, and Verizon models. In other words, this is compatible with 0P6B10000 (International), 0P6B12000 (AT&T/Dev Edition), 0P6B13000 (T-Mobile), 0P6B16000 (Telus/Rogers Canada), 0P6B20000 (Verizon), and 0P6B20000 (Verizon) devices. These nightlies are brought to you courtesy of CM developers deck, invisiblek, h8rift, toastcfh, flinny and xInterlopeRx.

Next up, we have the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. Official support for the ‘mondrianwifi’ began earlier today, with one nightly build available to date. The maintainer for this device is CM developer crpalmer.

Finally, we have the Sprint Galaxy S5 (kltespr) and the LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (n5120). Development for these devices will come courtesy of CM developers Xda Garwynn, Esa Laukkanen, and Scott Brissenden. Unfortunately, there aren’t any nightlies available for either of these devices just yet, but be happy to know that they’re on the way.

Head over to the CyanogenMod Download page for your device to get started:

And once you’ve gotten CM11 on your device (or to read up on guides to obtain root, flash a recovery, and flash a rom), head over to your device-specific forums for the HTC One M8 (2014)Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4Sprint Galaxy S5, and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
