CyanogenMod 11 now available for Android One devices
CyanogenMod, one of the world's most popular custom ROMs, can now be installed on one of the three, recently released in India, Android One devices. This was made possible thanks to the work of developer varun.chitre15, an India-based member of the XDA developer forums, who managed to port a custom recovery to each of the three Android One models, and gain root access to them.

A custom recovery / unlocked bootloader is all one needs to install a custom ROM. Varun.chitre15 has gotten to work on a CM ROM for the Android One devices and it can be flashed to any one of the three. It is still in alpha and there is still trouble with data connectivity, Wi-Fi, and the second SIM card not being detected.

Google's Android One program aims to bring entry-level devices with adequate specs to developing markets. It would be interesting to see, now that it's been made possible, what modders will be able to do with the affordable hardware.

Great for them. Android one initiative by Google is great way to bring stock android experience to masses. The only downside is that camera operates only if you have SD card inserted.Other than that,great work.

You know, I first tried CM11 on a S3 mini and it was beautiful...until I installed Google play services and apps and that thing went haywire, dominating mankind and whatnot. Had to put it down today, I hate you CM11.
