All of us here at XDA appreciate just how far Android has come. The incredible flagships of today come packed with bleeding edge technology and are hard to complain about, but it wasn't always like this. Tell us about the worst Android phone you've ever owned, and what made it so dreadful.
Official CyanogenMod 11 Nightlies Now Available for Many Devices, 4.4.1-Based Builds by Tomorrow
Earlier today, we talked about how the CyanogenMod Team released CyanogenMod 11 Milestone 1 for most of the current Nexus lineup. This included official support for the Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and Nexus 7, and Nexus 7 (2013).
At the time of the CM 11 M1 announcement, we also wrote about how the CM team was planning on beginning official CM11 nightlies for other devices. That time is now here, as there are now official CM11 nightlies for quite a few devices. (The complete list of supported devices can be found at the bottom of this post.)
In addition to nightlies for quite a lot of devices, the CM Team also announced that it has already merged the Android 4.4.1 code into its repo. Because of this, users can expect the next serving nightlies to pack the 4.4.1 goods. In other words, tomorrow, Android 4.4.1 will be available for the masses. That said, there isn’t too much that we’ve seen changed in 4.4.1, aside from the Nexus 5-specific camera improvements.
It is important to keep in mind that these are still nightlies, so not everything will work perfectly on every device. Those looking to get started can do so by downloading the ROMs directly from the CyanogenMod Download Server.
Have you already given the official CM11 nightlies or M1 a shot? If so, we’d love to hear your experiences so far. Please feel free to share them in the comments below!

Reports indicate that Microsoft is investing in the rogue Android forker Cyanogen. The funding round is said to be upwards of $70 million, and could allow for a cooperation between Cyanogen and the Silicon Valley giant in the ongoing battle of mobile operating systems. This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...
