Install CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4.1 Official Nightly Using Latest CWM Recovery

After the stable CM 10.2 Android 4.3.1 release, Yesterday CyanogenMod Team released the Official CM11 Android 4.4 builds for the recent nexus device like Nexus 4, 5, 7, and 10 etc. Today the team made it available to many none nexus devices with the old nexus brother Galaxy Nexus. The CM11 latest nightly is based on the latest Android 4.4.1 build.

Just installed the cm11 ROM in my Galaxy S3 I9300, Touch is very smooth and gives an awesome performance. Tested WiFi,3G Data, Camera, YouTube Playback, Music playback in headphone and loudspeaker, Call, SMS etc. every thing works well.

CM11 M3 Build released with an updated version of the Trebuchet launcher based on Android 4.4 Launcher3 code.The update also include some user experience tweaks, the auto-start tweaks, some additional transparency support, and more.

I used the latest Clockworkmod recovery to flash the cm11 ROM as some users soft bricked their device flashing cm11 using TWRP and old CMW. So it is recommended to use latest Clockworkmod recovery to flash the CyanogenMod 11 build.

Flashing custom ROM may brick device or void warranty ... I am not responsible for any damage do at your risk.
