Hey guys, so I was just wondering if there's any working Cyanogenmod 11 based ROMs that are fully functioning and stable for the most part on the Glacier. I've checked the development thread and none of the 4.4 ROMs are any good and Albinoman doesn't even respond to my messages about him porting CM 11 to the phone. Thanks for any suggestions.

There are a few 4.4s and one CM11 I'm aware of at this point (LegacyCarbon, Evervolv, and keifus.rahn's CM 11), but they are early previews - not stable. If you want fully functioning & stable daily driver you may have to go back to ICS. Otherwise there will be a few bugs. That's just how it is. If you want the bleeding edge, you have to either live with bugs or be part of the development and help the developers fix some of the issues.

Hopefully Albinoman887 does decide to port CM 11 to glacier eventually, his CM10.2 is pretty solid if you haven't tried it. But I would really avoid nagging him, otherwise he may want to just avoid the Glacier community.

I just decided to give up on the Glacier. I decided to order a Galaxy Nexus. More variety of ROMs. But still, its a shame that this phone may reach its death with development from what I'm seeing.

You could help development.

I might try porting cyanogen 11; I was previously trying to port taktiK, but then my glacier was dead. I could put up test builds though, I hate doing it though.

I'd think KitKat will run okay on it. My only problem is the battery life.
