While Lollipop has been officially rolling out to several variants of the Galaxy Note 4, the team at Cyanogen has been busy keeping up with Samsung by releasing CM12 nightlies. Today, the custom ROM is available to one more variant of the Note 4 family: the European N910F.

Not to be completely left out of the spotlight during Mobile World Congress, Cyanogen Inc. has a few announcements to make.

Despite all the acrimony between Cyanogen and OnePlus, most of the phones that shipped with CyanogenMod 11S are still going to receive updates for the foreseeable future. The firmware update to 12S, which is Lollipop-based, is now in its final quality assurance testing with Cyanogen and third parties to meet standards set by Google to retain Play Services. Remember, this is an OEM ROM, not just a run-of-the-mill build going from nightly to stable. Read More

Even so, it looks like the nightly builds released just a few days later have adjusted the boot animation once again, bringing it back to a more sober black. Here it is, for your viewing pleasure: Read More
