CyanogenMod 11 M10 Available for Supported Devices
Summer vacation is over for most students out there, and it’s the time to get back to reality. Developers of popular ROMs have also came back to work, and as a result, we have a new monthly snapshot build of one of the most popular custom ROMs, CyanogenMod.
A few months ago, the CM team decided to switch to the monthly milestone release system rather than their previous release candidate and stable builds. ROMs that are described as M are considered more stable, and ready for use as your daily driver. Today’s build is the tenth such release.
Today’s M10 build brings support for the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S5, as well as a few minor changes in device code names for Motorola. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been split into GSM and Sprint/Verizon variants. Unfortunately, some popular devices like the Motorola DROID MAXX and Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon and Sprint will no longer get official nightlies from the CyanogenMod team. Apart from device chances, a few new features have been introduced. The most noticeable are glove mode and a soft reboot option.
Here’s a full changelog from official CyanogenMod’s blog.
