CyanogenMod 11 M6 out, Milestone versions to follow every two weeks
The CyanogenMod team has made the latest version of its custom Android ROM, CM 11 M6, available for 50 devices, with more of them likely to follow soon. For now, the list features the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, 5 and 7, Samsung Galaxy S, S2, S3, S4, and Note 2, LG Optimus G, G2, G Pro, and G Pad, HTC One, and HTC One Mini.

The full change-log is extensive and reads as follows:

  • Quiet Hours – Fix longpress QS tile option
  • Voice+ – Integrate into settings (under Wireless and Networks > ‘More’)
  • Blacklist – Add provider permissions
  • Lockscreen – Fix custom wallpaper crashes and album art issues
  • Display – Consolidate screen-off animation options (remove checkbox)
  • Bluetooth – Upstream updates and fix issues with audio routing to select car makes/models and disconnect issues
  • MultiSim – Additional support patches (15+) and UI/UX modifications
  • Lockscreen – Disable elements when in custom lockscreen
  • Quick Settings – Options to show smaller tiles; add BT device name to tile
  • Quick Settings – Fix QS tiles layout in landscape mode
  • Usage Stats – Fix screen on stats after boot
  • Resolve memory leaks in Frameworks
  • Settings – Show ‘eject card’ action for USB storage
  • Theme Engine – Introduce new Engine capabilities (chooser to arrive in nightlies this week)
  • Parallel Shutdown – Decrease shutdown time
  • Address security vulnerability for icons
  • Downloads – Add pause/resume support
  • Trebuchet – Hidden apps and labels support
  • Remove parallel boot dexopt from stable/cm-11.0 branch
  • And more (all changes from Mar 29th to April 30th)

In addition, the CyanogenMod team will be replacing Stable and Release Candidate versions with monthly (later bi-weekly) Milestone releases. They will offer more frequently updated, stable versions of CM to use, while those looking for the ultimate in being up-to-date can still download the experimental Nightly releases at the risk of stability problems.

GS3 cm11 users like me are going through hell! There has been a random UI reboot bug and The CM team has not fixed it. It has been there since the last 12 versions!

Yeah give me money! Why should I buy a phone the price of a super PC?
I find the LG G Pad the best deal apart from Nexus(not available in most countries though). Superb built quality, S600, Adreno 320, FullHD, microsd, Android KitKat, good battery life for such a low price! And built from LG!! I have one and it's awesome!
Why pay more when you can have almost same specs for less and that from a renowned manufacturer not some Chinese copies!
Sorry for the ad, but I just love my G Pad :)

Same here with my S III. That's why I suggest you stick to Cyanogenmod 10.2 with Nova launcher for now. Yeah I know TouchWiz has been updated to 4.3 Jelly bean, but I can't stand it.

I say Apex for the launcher!! Leaves more RAM for graphics and more stable than Nova and just updated yesterday!

Gave Resurrection Remix a try? It contains a boatload of features and above that, amazing battery life plus it is bug free and stable.

People still use old phones yet complain Cyanogenmod 11 doesn't work right on there. Upgrade to something newer or keep dealing with some things not working or some features causing the rom to crash or lag. Go from Galaxy S3 to something newer.

Duh, thats the point of flashing a custom rom. To make your device updated even tho its one or two year older or if support stops. I have a Xperia sola waay back in 2012 and still experiencing the goodness of Kitkat.

isn't that the point of custom roms? the mod community? the awesomeness of free community? Is somewhere out there will do it....for free. Of course not the person 'complaining' but someone out there right?

The latest CM11 M6 seems to run just fine on my good old Captivate (AT&T Galaxy S). Sorry for the S3 guys, but I'm just curious why this kind of discrepancy with an older unit working fine and a newer one with issues?

I know there are lots of phones to test and customize for, but at some point it seems to me that the list of supported phones has to get cut down and use CM resources more effectively. Get the older phones like mine to a decent version that is more or less stable and cut them off after say 3-4 years.
