Wild CyanogenMod 11 nightlies first appeared on Nexus devices just under a week ago, and they were followed up only a day later by builds for a slew of other devices. Still, many devices are still waiting for their share of KitKat. Today we can strike two more off that list - Sprint's LG G2 (ls980) and the Samsung Galaxy Express (expressatt).



CyanogenMod 11 may have been around for nearly a week now, but don't let that give you a false sense of confidence. These are very fresh files, and any number of hiccups that have yet to be discovered could surface after installing either of these ROMs. Don't look at this as a shortcut to KitKat unless you're ready to accept and deal with the risks.

But if you know precisely what you're getting yourself into, then go grab the latest Gapps file, and hit up the links below.

    How does this work on the LS980? Well enough to use?

      I tested the 12/26/13 build on my LS980 and when I placed a test call, it would not connect nor would it register when I tapped the "end" button.

    god dammit, I thought it was going to be for the international version of the express (expresslte). I know they're internally different devices even though they're both called galaxy express, I just wonder why it hasn't received support yet.

    The link for the LS980 goes to the Express nightly and the Express goes to the LS980

    From what I've heard, pre-nightly (unofficial) builds of CM11 on the GNex had only two issues, both related to animation/transition effects. Nothing too serious. Dont know how fast it is though.

      I've been using a nightly on my GNex for a few days now. Haven't really noticed any issues other than a couple finicky bluetooth connections -- but I'm not even sure if that's related to the ROM or my crappy bluetooth devices. I wasn't big into nightlies before, but this seems to be actually pretty stable and quick.
