Mostly stable builds, but not quite ready for release

M5 builds of CM 11 are getting trickling out to servers over at CyanogenMod, Inc according to a blog post from the folks over at CyanogenMod. They give a little insight on why some Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 devices were left out (spoiler: one release won't work well on every phone) but we're told not to worry. Here's the short list of changes:

  • Trebuchet – Fix last icon from hotseat disappearing
  • Trebuchet – Fix custom home transition effect
  • Volume Panel – Increase opacity of transparency (previous level led to visibility concerns)
  • WhisperPush – Relocate to Privacy menu
  • WhisperPush – fix NPE on viewing identity if unregistered
  • Translations – Initial imports from CrowdIn (followup blog post next week)
  • MultiSim – Additional support patches (25+)
  • Privacy Guard – Additional AppOps permissions
  • Additional Right-to-left (RTL) layout mirroring support
  • Settings – Add ‘screen color’ support
  • Quickboot support (device specific)
  • Stylus – Fix eraser being disabled by palm rejection
  • NavBar – Allow toggle in runtime (needs kernel support)
  • Add ethernet icon support to status bar
  • Dialer – Open Source forward/backward/incoming look-up

Look for the build for your device on the download page as they make their way through the system.

  • Does anyone have cm11 on the galaxy s3(i9300)? Everything is working fine other than the sd card. If anyone knows a fix it will be great Posted via Android Central App using galaxy s4
  • HDMI not working? Posted via Android Central App
  • Yes. Easy. Download. " Next app SDFix".
    Works great
  • I think that CM is working on being dead. Too many issues, too many inconsistencies.
  • +1
    I gave up last year Posted via Android Central App
  • And battery life is atrocious Posted via Android Central App
  • Flash Franco kernel :) Sent from my Galaxy S4 running SlimKat 4.4.2
  • I had a pleasant CM experience but decided to go back to TouchWiz and updated to Android 4.3 on my vz gs3; since then I can't flash anything anymore. :-( SafeStrap didn't help either as there are only two roms that work and both give me an "Unfortunately system UI has stopped" error.

  • It could be because you aren´t root now.That´s very strange, Look at XDA for your problem. You are very lucky i you are English, because I´m Spanish and i have to read a lot of post in English like XDA, but more or less i can understand it.
  • I actually have root and tried all the xda stuff but still no solution..... Posted via Android Central App
  • Not to take away from this article, could someone tell me what kind of phone that is in the picture please. Thank you. Posted via Android Central App
  • Oppo N1 Posted via Android Central App
  • Thank you.
  • Its all good on Nexus 4 coming from M4 Posted via Android Central App
  • AOSP ftw.
  • I truly support CM. I hope they can free us from the tyranny of Google. Google is the new Microsoft. They control your phone and dictate what is acceptable and what is not. I hope their new partnership with Oppo is successful. For example: the BS and lame reasons of not allowing the end user to control permissions. Oh ... I know ...... it's true because Google says so. Come on folks .... they control it all. If it gets much worse ....... Window's phone looks better all the time. Open source ...... yeah right! LMAO..... I like the partnership with Oppo. I'd buy one! Go CM!!!!! Set us free!!!
  • - What were you saying?
  • For the uninitiated out there, WTF does 'M5' mean?
  • M builds are called 'snapshot' builds, somewhere between experimental nightly builds and the release candidate build. This is the 5th snapshot build = M5 Posted via my HTC M8
  • How many snapshots are typically released before the release candidate? Waiting patiently for this to release on the Nexus 5 :)
  • As many as it takes.... I think CM10.2 only had two Posted via my HTC M8
  • M releases are major millstone in the process.
  • No i9305 as usual.. The latest nightlies were awful anyways. Posted via Android Central App
  • No i9305 as usual.. The latest nightlies were awful anyways.
  • Now running on my Moto Razr Posted via XT910 CM11 M4
  • Is there one for the 4.3 running gs3 for Verizon? I ran safestrap and tried to install but no go; the forums said its because the built version was different. Is this latest release based on ML1? Posted via Android Central App
  • Anyone prefers cm over stock? Especially on a nexus? Posted via Android Central App
  • Did they fix the low call volume issue yet? Kinda important to be able to hear people that call you. That killed my CM 11 experience. Posted via Android Central App
  • i was hoping for video recording improvements since M4 crashed several times while recording on my i9300 u__u
