CyanogenMod 11 M6 Snapshot build is now available for download. Six months after the newest major update for Android devices rolled out – KitKat – the CyanogenMod team rolled out the M build and custom ROM lovers can try it if they want to.
M builds are generally better than nightly builds but they are not stable enough to get the Release Candidate status, the stage where any custom ROM lover can try it without problems. Not every phone and tablet will be compatible with the M build however. Don’t forget to backup your info before attempting to root your device.
