    Hi everyone, Cyanogen team released stable, final version of 10.2 today (December 2, 2013). This is good news because now their focus will be on 4.4 KitKat, and I presume we will see an explosion of ROM's updating to 4.4 off the CM base. Pretty exciting!

    Update to OP:

    Here is the first round of things from Cyanogen, as I posted in reply #9 of this thread:

    For those who would like it, here is my personal copy of the first CM 11 nightly. I deleted the assert lines altogether, and it has been debloated to suit my tastes: no Apollo music player, no live wallpapers, no email/exchange. If you need any of those things, you will need to download from Cyanogen website, but you are still free to download mine even if all you want is the updater-script, you can use a modified one over and over if need be, just drag and drop into the ROM you are wishing to modify (in the same window that contains the original updater-script, using WinRAR). Enjoy!

    P.S. Same rules apply as from 4.3, in terms of applying APN fixes, must flash 4.4 GApps, etc., etc., and I am not responsible for anything that goes wrong!

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/33pxkmeh47tozba/CM 11 Nightly 20131207.zip

    And here is from reply #44, I have linked my personal, modified copies of 12/12/2013 CM 11 nightly, which is now on Android build 4.4.2, and the matching GApps from Paranoid Android:

    All right, all is well with a dirty flash and installation of newest PA GApps! Don't worry if initial boot hangs after a few seconds, it will restart itself and boot just fine. This has actually happened to me about half the time on CM 11 anyways when rebooting back from recovery. Standard disclaimer from OP applies about bricked phones, personal responsibility, etc., etc. Also, I in no way claim to be directly responsible for the original ROM or GApps, these are just the versions I modified for personal use after downloading. All credit goes to CyanogenMod Team and Paranoid Android. Modification of build.prop to set SELinux to permissive did not stick or else I need to modify another line I don't know about, so for now changing from enforcing to permissive requires manual intervention. Good luck, happy flashing!

    Modified CM 11 Nightly from 12/12/2013:

    12/12/2013 Modified CM 11 Nightly

    Modified PA GApps (Full package) from 12/12/2013:

    12/12/2013 Paranoid Android GApps Full Package (Modified)

    Don't forget, appropriate APN fixes (specific to Boost or VM, depending) are still necessary.

    Users experiencing issues with default Camera please see post #70 for a fix to this problem.

    Update 12/15/2013:

    CyanogenMod Team has fixed the camera issue. I will link two copies of this build. Both copies have had the assert lines removed so anyone on VM/Boost can flash. First one has just that modification, no debloating, second copy has been debloated to my personal tastes (see first part of the OP). And as usual, this is CM's original work, I have just provided this as a service to those who don't want to do the "dirty work" to get a Sprint ROM working on our phones.

    Option 1, no debloat: 12/15/2013 CM 11 Nightly, no assert lines

    Option 2, debloated: 12/15/2013 CM 11 Nightly, no asserts and debloated

    ***** Merry Christmas Everyone!! *****

    All right my friends, as a Christmas present to you all, here is the 12/25 nightly from CyanogenMod Team. No major bug fixes or anything that would normally justify flashing for me personally, but I snuck in a message for you guys that will show up when you are flashing in recovery, so watch the screen while the flash is taking place!

    Christmas Version of CM11 Nightly 20131225

    This is a heavily debloated version, but if you are dirty flashing and normally use Titanium Backup (if you aren't, you should!) then you can restore anything you normally use (like Email or Apollo) after flashing.

    For those who would like a GApps alternative, BaNKS GApps is a very nice option. Be aware, standard procedure for GApps from Paranoid Android and BaNKS has become to replace certain AOSP features like Trebuchet and the SMS app with Google defaults (Google Experience Launcher and Hangouts in this case). If you want those AOSP options left intact, flash P.A. GApps for 4.4 from 11/26/2013 (thanks APOPHiS420 for figuring that one out!).

    XDA Thread for BaNKS GApps

    Update 12/16/2013:

    As of the release of the 12/15/2013 P.A. GApps packages, only the Complete package will replace certain AOSP standard features, other packages, such as Full Modular will leave those options intact (i.e. launcher, SMS app, and keyboard from AOSP won't be replaced by their Google counterparts; Google Experience Launcher, Hangouts, and Google keyboard will still be installed, but will be an option for using instead of the new default).

    Want your Dalvik Virtual Machine to get blazing fast? Check out this thread on XDA, make sure to read all instructions and warnings thoroughly. Nandroid first for sure if you choose to flash this. On CM11, do not choose the bionic patch, just the Dalvik one, and put the restore .zip file in the same location on your SD card just to be safe. That being said, just flashed this patch and wow! It really does work, at least for the last hour or two, and confirmed working by several other members as well (thanks to Warrior94 and Rally517)

    Dalvik patch: Qualcomm-optimized Dalvik library

    Need a custom kernel? My kernel of choice is dkp, hands down. Decimalman is an amazing kernel developer, been using his builds since almost day one of owning the S3. He builds for TouchWiz 4.3, AOSP 4.3, and has just started releasing AOSP 4.4 test builds. As of this writing, second test build for AOSP 4.4 is running really well for me, using freelunch/zen combo and undervolted by -75 across the board, with minimum setting of 540 mHz for faster wake times, no overclocking (no need to overclock a dual core running 1512 unless it is just to get a high benchmark, and that should be a temporary thing). Decimalman is also very responsive to feedback posted on his XDA thread, just remember to be polite and not accusatory if something isn't working-these are test builds for the most part!

    Agreed, even Sprint users have experienced MMS problems and these ROM's are designed for them, we just know how to make them work for us as well!

    List of devices getting official CM11 nightlies just exploded today after the initial release for the Nexus line, including the international variants for our device. Here's hoping ours is next (technically Sprint version but that's just semantics!), pretty exciting!!

    Has anyone tested this nightly?

    Is it as stable as the unofficial?

    I have only been using this since its release early this morning, but I think 3G is running faster/smoother for me than it ever has!

    GApps can also be "debloated" just like a ROM using WinRAR, I always go in and remove the apps I never use in advance instead of removing them on the back end with Titanium Backup. The Paranoid Android GApps packages have definitely become my GApps of choice regardless!

    I haven't spent too much time on the road with it yet but this coming week i'll check it out. I'm definitely impressed with how smooth it is this early in development in terms of basic usage though for sure.

    Yeah, barely any lag for me where before it seemed like anything internet-oriented when away from home WiFi took a little while. Looking forward to using navigation and a few other things to see the difference.

    Is anyone having battery issues with the first CM 11 nightly? Everything works great for me, except my battery drains very fast and charges EXTREMELY slow.

    everything is fine for me. did you try reflashing?

    phones also charge faster when you turn off unnecessary things. put your phone on airplane more while your charging it and see if it makes a difference

    I immediately flashed a custom kernel with fastcharge enabled, so IDK. Curious why it has white font default. I miss my Cyan.

    SGS3 is known to have issues with the charging port, you may actually have a physical issue not a kernel one. Stock kernel has been awesome for me, I would suggest a reflash before your battery gets much lower.

    I'm confused? I've been running cm11 with everything but MMS for quite a while now. What is better about these releases??
