New CyanogenMod 11 Nightly Builds Bring KitKat To Sprint's LG G2 And The Samsung Galaxy Express

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 10.2 Nightlies For The 3G And WiFi-Only Galaxy Note 8.0 Are Now Available For Download

The Galaxy Note 8.0 is a pretty capable tablet, though it does have several drawbacks. While the painfully low 1280 by 800 display can't be helped, its default software configuration is far less immutable. If TouchWiz just grinds your gears, you will be happy to know that CyanogenMod nightlies are now available for both the 3G (GT-N5100) and WiFi-only (GT-N5110) versions of the tablet. Sure, anyone who installs them now may be sacrificing stability and other functionality, but that's the price some are willing to pay for stock Android and quicker access to updates.

The Unofficial CyanogenROM Downloader Adds Scheduled ROM Flashing And Backups - Safely Applying Nightlies Has Never Been Easier

Our readers already know about CyanogenMod, as it's only the most popular Android ROM out there, so I won't waste time with an introduction. Many also already use CyanogenROM Downloader to get their hands on the latest versions, even though it's not an official updater. The app's already awesome, but its author sent out a tease a few days ago implying that it could be even better - that it could automatically update your ROM to the latest version overnight, do a backup beforehand, and install your preferred custom kernel without a single touch.

According to XDA Developers forum poster Jahon, it was build on July the 11th, and now it's been re-packaged into a ROM file flashable in the custom recovery of your choice.

I'm running it right now. If you want to try it out, it's easy to do so, but be prepared to have your bootloader unlocked and flash some zips via a custom recovery. If you don't know what any of this means, I suggest you get familiarized with Android flashing first.
