cyanogenmod

If you own a Galaxy S4 and you want a nice taste of Android 4.4 KitKat and CyanogenMod, we have good news: the team at Cyanogen recently released an alpha build of CyanogenMod 11 for the Galaxy S4. Nope, it's not perfect yet, but if you have the tweaking spirit and want to play with some of the latest software available, this could be right up your alley.

AndroidAuthority said that there are still a lot of bugs in the build, which is to be assumed since it's an alpha release, so you won't be able to use a lot of the features on your Galaxy S4. Some current bugs prevent you from recording video, for example, and there are even issues with call quality, which means you probably want another phone with you at all times.

Still, we know a lot of our readers are comfortable flashing ROMs (please only do this if you are), and are also big fans of Cyanogen, so we wanted to let you know that the alpha build is available in case you want to get your hands dirty. Side note: if you want to give Cyanogen a whirl on a different device without too much work, be sure to check out the official CyanogenMod Installer.
