So, it should be reaching Google devices in the first lot, like Nexus & Motorola.

Maybe because the ios8 is out, it should hurry up

Saw this article in NDTV: SOme apps on IOs and Playstore available at a lower price. I found Swype keyboard to be a great VFM at this price. It was VFM earlier too, but now more so at Rs.60.

Some photos of cynogenmod 11 on my Redmi 1s. Both sims are enabled and good for daily use. No crashes since inception! And back cover heating has reduced to a great extent!

Interesting stuff friends.

What was the issue with the MIUI that made you folks want to switch? Its quite decent eye candy and is quite responsive as well. CM is normally too plain jane for my taste.

Considering the capacity and RAM of the phone, I thought a plain CM could improve the performance of the phone. Moreover, I was worried about the data hijacking by MIUI OS! Since, other developers like Mokee,etc are too working on ROM for this phone, options will be many in the near future. Had some apps crashing issues in the stock ROM
