After the long wait, CyanogenMod11 builds are finally here for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini! The rom is still being developed by arco68 and for now there are only available nightly builds for download.

For a first nightly build available, it runs surprisingly well and some of the main functions such as telephony, WiFi, camera and the main customization options seem to function just fine. As for the performance, it is buttery smooth. If you are planning on upgrading from CM10.2 I would highly recommend you give this build a try.

The custom rom is available for LTE (GT-I9195) and 3G (GT-I9190) users and it can be downloaded from the official cyanogenmod website, there is no build available for the Duos users unfortunately. Links can be found below.
