Galaxy Mega ROM Review - Cyanogen Mod 11

I decided to create a separate post for each ROM.

** CM11 **












1. Tested Version
ROM: cm-11-20140317
GApps: 3-15_GApps_Standard_4.4.2

2. What it is
Cyanogen Mode (CM) is an enhanced firmware for Smartphones and Tablets. It provides various additional features which original phone's firmware cannot provide. This is the most famous custom ROM package for Android devices.

3. Characteristics
Simple, lightweight

4. Recommended for
Mid-High level users. Although Cyanogen Mod is the most popular firmware, I don't recommend it for Metro PCS Galaxy Mega users due to the couple of issues.


5. Issues

* You may have to update Wireless setting in order to get the data work. If you cannot login to Cyanogenmod account or Google account during start up either use Wifi signal or skip the setting.

Go to Setting -> Wireless & Networks -> More -> Mobile Network -> Access Point Names (APNs) -> If T-Mobile is selected change it to MetroPCS LTE. For more information please check the post from XDA.

* Cannot delete system apps. Seems like Super User or authority related issue.

* Calendar Sync function. Pre-installed Android Calendar can't be synced with Google Account. Download Google Calendar app to solve this issue.

* Youtube screen error. (Fixed)
(Video screen is fixed with new version. It's working okay now)

Few screen glitches can be found on Welcome screen and Youtube.
When playing Youtube, screen goes gray and half of screen is out.
If you manually visit Youtube mobile site via browser and play videos, they work okay
