The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is now officially supported by CyanogenMod 11. The tablet’s first nightly build is available for download now, bringing a taste of pure Android that’s completely free of Samsung’s own TouchWiz user interface.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro lineup offers some of the best super-sized tablets you can buy when it comes to specifications. They boast stunning high-resolution displays, speedy Exynos 5 Octa processors, cutting-edge graphics, and that all-important microSD card slot for expanding their storage.

The only problem is, they come with TouchWiz pre-installed, and it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. But you can now buy a Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Wi-Fi only) and introduce a stock Android experience yourself, thanks to CyanogenMod, with the latest CM11 nightly build available to download now.

The ROM offers everything you’d expect from CM11, including the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat software, and features like the CM theme engine, “Heads Up” notifications, and spam notification filtering. There are some things to bear in mind before installing this ROM, however.

This is the first CM11 ROM for the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, and it’s a nightly build. That means it won’t be completely stable, and you may run into a few bugs here and there. Some of those could be minor, but others could break key features you rely on. If you’re not sure you can live with that, you’re better off waiting for a stable build.

If you want to proceed with flashing, follow the source link below to download CM11. And remember you’ll also need to flash the Gapps package for access to the Play Store, Gmail, Maps, and other Google apps.
