Unofficial CyanogenMod 11 Android 4.4 Comes to Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

The developer who compiled CyanogenMod 10.2 Android 4.3 for the Galaxy S3 mini (which is pretty stable) has come up with CyanogenMod 11 ROM pretty soon before the CyanogenMod team could actually roll out any official CM11 ROM. Though the ROM is still in development stage, you can go ahead and flash it to your device to taste Android 4.4. XDA forum member New Macław has compiled the CM11 ROM for Galaxy S3 mini. The ROM is being actively updated so you may see the minor bugs present at the time of writing going off soon.
