One of the main things folks with the HTC One M8 were looking for when S-OFF was achieved were fully custom ROMs like CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android and the like. The first of that batch has finally arrived, with CyanogenMod announcing that nightlies will be available for owners of these devices as soon as tonight.

The good news is that this isn’t your typical hobbled launch that only caters to GSM users — there’s a version for Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile and the international GSM variants sitting on CyanogenMod’s servers.

There are a couple of important things to note. For starters, if you’re using a custom recovery (which you likely are if you’re looking to flash something like this), it will need to report as compatible with one of the following model numbers:

  • m8
  • m8wl
  • m8wlv
  • m8vzw
  • m8whl
  • m8spr

And it should be needless to say that nightlies are flashed at your own risk, as is anything that isn’t OEM-approved. Take special care for nightlies, though, because they represent the cutting edge of development, and there might be stuff breaking and freaking out left and right.

So long as you remember that you are the only one responsible for what you do with your device, then be sure to check CyanogenMod’s download center (m8 will be used to identify its code branch) later on tonight when the first files are expected to go live.
