    A couple of hours ago the first official nightly build of CyanogenMod for Lollipop, Android 5.0.2, came up.

    There have been unofficial builds of this over the past month which have been a mixed bag of stable and unstable with certain features that were either missing or did not function correctly. However, this first nightly build, 20150106, so far has proved very stable.

    This build is, so far, only for the klte, SM900F, International model. You should flash it via ktoonsez's TWRP Recovery after a FULL wipe if you are coming from any other custom ROM or stock firmware. You will also need to flash, via TWRP Recovery, the special Google Apps package,
    gapps-lp-20141109-signed.zip, for this build.

    I would strongly recommend flashing a stock Samsung NL9 build prior to installing this ROM so that you have both the NL9 bootloader and modem.


    Be warned! This is for competent users and, as with all CM nightly's, they are beta, test versions.
