CyanogenMod 11S Finally Landed in The 5 Nexus

When One Plus launched its One Plus One did with Cyanogen’s hand. No more but did so with a ROM with a modified version designed for this terminal: a different interface with a flat style and some other extra application. As usual in the Android world more than one wanted to test this without having to do with the elusive mobile from this Chinese manufacturer.

Was matter of time before someone pulled out a version of CyanogenMod 11S for a terminal that is as versatile as the Nexus 5. If you have this terminal, you can already download the ROM and install it on your own to discover if all the media noise that’s been around this version really is worthwhile or not.

A CyanogenMod flat and square

As you know, this version of CyanogenMod 11S is far from the original. Is set aside the AOSP design lines to qualify for a style with more personality but keeping the canyons which currently send in Android: simplicity of elements, flat icons and all very colorful.

The installation process is the usual and holds no big surprises: we copy the ROM to the memory of the Nexus 5 and install it through TWRP. The Android version is 4.4.4 and is completely stable so a priori, according to the author of the port, we should not meet with major failures.

As a curiosity, say that the author of this port is Spanish. Perhaps to encourage me to try it, took with Android in my Nexus 5 since left the preview to developers and think I’ll try something different until the final version.
