CyanogenMod 11 M9 Rolling Out Now w. Changelog
Cyanogenmod have just delivered a great pile of great news on my desk this morning. The CM team have started pushing the M9 build of CM 11 this morning, which makes it around a month since the M8 release. Another bit of news is that this release may pry me away from my stock ROM for my HTC M8. This is because this release marks the first ever (non-nightly) release for the Xperia Z2 ‘sirius’, Xperia Z2 Tablets ‘castor’ and the HTC One ‘m8.’
