CES 2014 is almost upon us where there will be lots of new tech toys unveiled, including Android phones and tablets, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on your current device just yet.
If you were hoping to breath some new life into your device with the latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat, but your device hasn’t received an update yet, or may never get it, you may be in luck with one of the best aftermarket firmwares, CyanogenMod.
While it’s been about a month since the CM team released its first “Snapshot” builds of KitKat for Nexus devices, now the M2 Snapshot builds or second “Snapshot” builds are available, but also for a multitude of other devices as well.
As I’ve mentioned before, if you’re not familiar with the M releases, they’re builds done roughly once a month that have had some testing to make sure things are mostly working and they’re the first builds that allow official bug reports on the project manager site. M builds are a step above nighties and are basically safe to use as your “daily driver.”
Check out the download page to see if your device has a CM 11 M2 Snapshot build available and check out the official Gapps page for the most up to date Google apps.
