CyanogenMod 11.0 M9 release: "knock off", bug fixes and more

The creators behind the Android community's favorite ROM, CyanogenMod, have released their latest version. CyanogenMod 11.0 M9 brings numerous improvements and bug fixes, but also a few new features that CM fans will likely enjoy.

It was only a matter of weeks ago when CM 11.0 M8 was upon us, bringing a host of significant changes. M9 is a smaller, but no less important update, for the first time bringing a stable CM 11.0 build to the Xperia Z2 (Sirius), Xperia Z2 Tablet (Castor) and the HTC One (M8). Aside from the expected bug fixes, I presume the most welcome addition is going to be the "knock-off" double-tap to sleep feature, which is already a favorite among many LG G3 users. 

Here are some of the more notable features:

  • Themes support for additional UI elements
  • Heads Up Notifications – Bug Fixes
  • Lockscreen – Allow double tap to sleep when using secure keyguard
  • Torch – Improve performance
  • Safe Headset Volume – prompt when interfering with 3rd party devices (Jawbone, Square, etc)
  • Quick Settings – respect locale changes on additional tiles
  • Proximity Wake-Up support – prevent accidental wake-up of device by checking to see if proximity sensor is blocked (eg. Device is in a bag or pocket).
  • Spam notification filtering – Set notifications to auto-ignore based on content (perfect for those pesky games that want you to ‘Save 20% on our new game’). Long-press offending notification to set as ignored; manage in Privacy settings.
  • Email – Fix saving attachments to storage for POP3 accounts

CyanogenMod has been one of Android's most popular ROMs for a number of years now, having built a huge fan following thanks to regular updates and clever design.

  • I have Cygenomod 11 M9 running on my Galaxy S4 - brilliant.

    Any idea when KitKat 4.4.2 will REALLY come to the Galaxy Note 2014 (SM-P600)? They have been saying it is coming for months yet it is still not here!!

    Hoping Cygenomod 11 will come to sm-p600 - haven't identified a good custom rom for this yet.

  • What's all this about? Can someone explain me? This sd cards and all? I'm on 4.4.4 pac man rom for galaxy s3 and i get sd card access... What did actually Google banned?

  • Any official cyanogenmod 11 for galaxy s5 available?

  • Yep, I have installed M9 on my Galaxy S3, works silky smooth.. All I would ask the CM team is any chance of restoring access to SD card. I have a 32GB card in my phone, and am unable to use it..a problem thousands of folk are having.. Love CM anyway.. first mod I would install on any Android device..!!

    • Nice! Getting CyanogenMod 11.0 working on a device that's over two years old is testament to how good their designers are. If other users are talking about the same SD card issues as you, I'm sure it is something that will be addressed :) The CM guys are pretty great when it comes to user feedback!
