Android 5.1.1 + Root for LG G3! [CM12.1 ROM]


Want to try out the latest Android 5.1.1 with root for your LG G3?

Check out the latest CM12.1 ROM, available for all variants of LG G3.  CyanogenMod team released Android 5.1.1 builds few days ago and you can grab these to try the latest Android 5.1.1.

What’s new?

With Android 5.1.1, you will find more stability and less bugs, sorta think of it as the stable version of previous Android 5.1.   Although it’s an incremental upgrade, Android 5.1.1 seems very stable at the moment on many other Android devices I’ve tried so far.

You will get all of the new CyanogenMod features like AudioFX app, CM Themes, customization along with stability of Android 5.1.1.  Performance and battery life is excellent.If you like AOSP ROMs, this is definitely where you should be.

I haven’t tested all the variants but the T-Mobile version I am running is very solid with everything working out of the box, highly recommended.

So, definitely give these new bad boys a test drive this week(end) if you feel like being on latest and greatest Android OS and do let me know what you think!
