The other day the CyanogenMod team announced that they were switching development of the custom Android ROM from CyanogenMod 10.2 to CyanogenMod 11.
Now the first version of CyanogenMod 11 has been released, and it supports AOPS supported Nexus devices which include the Google Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10.
Some background on this change of order. Normally, this would be the point in time where we turn on CM 11 nightlies. From there, we would spend the next few weeks (or longer) in the nightlies, all the while not allowing you guys (the users) to offer support in the form of bug reports. Taking reports against the constantly changing nightly codebase is too resource intensive, but at the same time, waiting another month to get them going is, in all honesty, wasted time. So, with this change, we are going for the best of both.
The AOSP-supported Nexus devices should have minimal to no device specific issues (as their hardware code comes mostly from Google). We’ve also done our due diligence and tested these devices, to make sure they behave properly. Any bugs that crop up on these builds should be centered around CM issues – items that we’ve introduced. By acknowledging them sooner, the entire CM 11 roster will benefit.
