CM11 ROM with Android 4.4.2 for Galaxy S4 GT-i9500!

For those of you with GT-i9500 Galaxy S4, your long wait is over for Android 4.4 KitKat.  Although there were many beta builds available since Android 4.4 KitKat came out, there hasn’t been one yet stable enough to run as daily driver.

Well, CM11 ROM is still experimental but everything is working out of the box except video camcorder, wifi tether, and some issues with calls.  That might be a deal breaker for some of you but the latest CM11 ROM packs Android 4.4.2 along with very zippy speeds and all the KitKat goodness baked in.
