cm 10.2 vs 11

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/CyanogenMod#CyanogenMod_11
CyanogenMod 10.2[Bearbeiten]
Im Zuge der Vorstellung von Android 4.3 wurde bekannt gegeben, dass das Team an einer Version 10.2 arbeitet.[39] Erste Nightly-Versionen wurden ab Mitte August 2013 veröffentlicht, zudem steht seit dem 1. November 2013 der erste Milestone (M1) für über 70 Geräte zur Verfügung.[40] Am 2. Dezember 2013 wurde die stabile Version von CM 10.2 veröffentlicht. Laut der CM 10.2 Download-Seite wurden bereits am Tag des Releases über 50 Geräte unterstützt. Weitere Geräte sollen folgen.[41]
CyanogenMod 11[Bearbeiten]
Die Entwicklung zu CyanogenMod 11 hat am 5. November 2013 begonnen. Es basiert auf Android 4.4 (KitKat). Erste Nightly-Builds wurden ab dem 5. Dezember 2013 veröffentlicht.[42] Am 3. Januar 2014 folgte das zweite Milestone-Release M2. Es unterstützt 65 Geräte (zum Beispiel Smartphones der Google Nexus-Reihe sowie verschiedene Geräte von Amazon, ASUS, HTC, LG, Motorola und Samsung) und ist eine fehlerbereinigte Zwischenversion.[43]

Google Apps are the proprietary Google-branded applications that come pre-installed with most Android devices, such as the Play Store, Gmail, Maps, etc. Due to licensing restrictions, these apps cannot come pre-installed with CyanogenMod and must be installed separately. The Google Apps are not required to boot or run CyanogenMod, however many users find them beneficial to take full advantage of the Android ecosystem.

after cm-11-20140214-NIGHTLY-i9300.zip failed with this error:
„set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed“ (Status 7). Which is kinda a let down since i hoped to see some RAM usage improvements with 4.4 on my One X resulting in better speed.
Having failed various times i returned to cm after the samung logo double flashed.

the way to fix this is to put cm-10.2.0-i9300.zip on your sd card (take sd card out, put it into card reader of your pc, copy the zip to sdcard, place sd card back to phone)

in cw boot loader – chose to install from external sd choose cm-10.2.0-i9300.zip

… and it worked.
