CyanogenMod 12 on LG’s Optimus G (E975)

An Optimus G E975 (Intl) was still waiting for wakeup, but official updates stuck at Android 4.4.2.

So I applied CyanogenMod to that phone and since it was not that easy to gather all the necessary information, I write down a short protocol of the steps, that helped in my case. I started with the rather incomplete (with respect to rooting and recovery) howto at wiki.cynogenmod.org.

Siri vs. Now

I recently upgraded my iPhone 5 to an Optimus G, which fits better to the profile of a Linux User and after I was never satisfied with the results of Siri (at least in German), the voice recognition of Google Now is in comparison more than convincing.
