CyanogenMod
« on: April 08, 2014, 11:55:47 PM »
I recently purchased my first smartphone. I'm interested in CyanogenMod, but I'm not really sure if it's worth my effort. Has anyone used this Android build?

I used the STOCK rom for a long time, recently I tried the cyanogen mod and it is pretty nice. Android without bloatware and nicely themed.... sweet!

I got a Nexus 5 last week. Its currently running stock ROM but I rooted it almost as soon as I got it because some the apps I used on my old phone required root access. I am waiting on Cyanogen to release a stable ROM for it.

I did some poking around and read that CM has changed their release model for CM 11. Where they used to label releases as "nightly" (bleeding edge features, testing), "Release Candidate", and "Stable", they now use only "Nightly" and "Milestone". I flashed CM11, Milestone 6 to my Nexus 5 last night, along with the GAPPS for KitKat. Different GAPPS kept crashing after the flash. Some more poking around and I found that this seems to be a recurring issue and potential solutions include wiping the Dalvik cache before flashing, and correcting issues related to multiple instances of devices having permissions on G+. I fixed my G+ issue (I hope) and will try again today. In any case make sure you have a Nandroid backup in case things go awry.
