The Moto G is easily one of the best choices on the market for a low-cost smartphone. One of the more appealing aspects of the handset is that it's essentially unlocked and free of carrier ties (in most cases, anyway), allowing users to more easily do all the things that carriers attempt to block on their branded handsets.
Among those things is rooting and ROMing, and now CyanogenMod 11 nightlies are rolling out for the Moto G 4G GSM. Read More
If you're ready for a heaping helping of stable CyanogenMod, you're in luck, because that's exactly what's available on tonight's all-you-can-flash Sunday buffet. The CM team started pushing the M9 build of CM 11 this evening, which puts this one about a month out from the M8 build. I'm sure you flashaholics are itching to hit the recovery menu, so grab this badboy and get flashing.
This release marks the first ever (non-nightly) release for the Xperia Z2 'sirius', Xperia Z2 Tablets 'castor' and the HTC One 'm8.'

The newest snapshot build of CyanogenMod is rolling out now, and it's a bit of a jump from the last version. This is the first snapshot based on Android 4.4.4, and it brings a few new features. Now that the M builds are essentially the stable channel, it's probably time for CM users to get flashing. Read More
When you go around flashing ROMs, you have to expect that things might occasionally go wrong. The previous milestone build of CyanogenMod 11 seemed fine at first, but then Google released the 4.4.3 update. Devices that were eligible (Nexus phones, for example) started producing update notifications, which shouldn't happen on a custom ROM. This was more troublesome than a notification that wouldn't go away, though.
If you used to play around with CyanogenMod Nightlies, but switched to the more stable M-series releases, it has probably felt like forever since M6 hit the scene. Well, M7 is hot off the compilers, just in time to fill that insatiable need to flash your phone or tablet. Don't forget, the M-series has officially taken the place of Release Candidates and Stable builds, so this is considered the most reliable version of CyanogenMod available. Read More
Can you make a smartphone without compromise? Is it possible to cram top-of-the-line hardware into a slim phone body, then fit it with well-regarded software, then sell it for about half the price of competing devices, and call the resulting product a "flagship killer?" Can you, as the ceaseless OnePlus promotion machine so succinctly puts it, "never settle?"
In a word, no. The OnePlus One, the maiden Android phone from a boutique manufacturer, is not completely without its shortcomings (or indeed, its compromises). Read More
When it comes to "small" phones sporting 4.3-inch displays, the options are really slim these days. The top options each come with custom UIs, and consumers don't have the luxury of picking up a Google Play Edition of any of them. People who want a zippy stock Android experience on a smaller device that's still relatively powerful are therefore placed in a position to take matters into their own hands. For HTC One Mini (M4) owners, CyanogenMod is now here to help. Read More
The Asus Transformer Pad TF701T launched with Android 4.2, with an update to 4.3 coming less than a month later. Unsurprisingly, an update to KitKat hasn't arrived nearly as quickly. This could be disheartening, but as seasoned Android users have come to expect, a ROM speeding things along is usually on its way. CyanogenMod 11 is now available for the TF701T, proving users with a way to experience Android 4.4 on what is a pretty compelling device. Read More
If your phone was already one of the very first devices to get the latest version of Android, do you really need a custom ROM like CyanogenMod? If you're shouting "YES" at the screen right now, you'll want to know about the first nightly builds available for the Moto X. The CM team has published CM11 nightlies for the Moto X on T-Mobile (XT1053, which is also the standard unlocked GSM edition) and for Verizon (XT1060), though the later needs to be a Developer Edition.
