I'm going to be real with you guys: it's been a long while since I've flashed a ROM on any of my devices.

And if I were to flash something right now, there's about a 100 percent chance that it'd be CyanogenMod.

Cyanogen Launches A New MOD Platform For Deeper Integration Of Apps In Android — Not To Be Confused With The CyanogenMod Custom ROM

Part of me can't help but wonder whether Cyanogen Inc. still lives under the shadow of its forefather, CyanogenMod, especially when announcements like these are made and the company introduces an eerily named "Cyanogen MOD" platform that has nothing to do with the custom ROM every enterprising Android user has known for years.

Instead, MOD is the incarnation of what we've been hearing from Cyanogen for a while now: a platform that opens up Cyanogen OS' Android framework further than any other, allowing deeper integration of apps and services into areas of the software that have otherwise been off-bounds for a long time.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Come To T-Mobile LG G4 While LG V10 Gets Its First 12.1 Nightly

We've recently covered some odd releases for CyanogenMod on Android, where the custom ROM was resurrecting some forgotten devices from the dead with updates that their original manufacturers wouldn't dare release for them. This isn't the case with these additions / upgrades to the CM lineup.

First, the T-Mobile LG G4 (h811) started getting its first CM13 nightlies a couple of days ago. Given that Marshmallow is just now heading to the Tmo G4 officially, Cyanogen is keeping up with LG on this one — albeit with a probably less stable release.

Second, the T-Mobile LG V10 (h901) got its first nightly yesterday, but this time it's for CyanogenMod 12.1 which is based on Android 5.1.

[He's Not Dead, Jim] Samsung Galaxy S II Gets Marshmallow Through CyanogenMod 13 Nightly

The Galaxy S II is an iconic device in Samsung's line-up. It had a big role in changing the public's perception of Samsung's brand and establishing it as a major smartphone player. But in our day and age, at a time when the S7 is about to be announced, the S II is getting long, really looooooooong in the tooth. It's a 5-year old device by now and its specs (dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 4.3" 480x800 display) can hardly be found in the lowest of the low-end Android phones. It does have 1GB of RAM and 16/32GB of storage though, which make it a potential candidate ripe for more modern Android ROMs.

Transformer Pad TF701T Leaps From Android 4.4 To 5.1 Via CyanogenMod 12.1 Nightly Builds, Xperia M Gets Marshmallow

The Asus Transformer line used to be a stalwart of Android tablets, and 2013's Transformer Pad TF701T was no slouch. The device had a beautiful 2560×1600 display that still holds up today, and like all previous Transformer devices, it had a detachable keyboard. It was intended as a productivity machine, but like all Android devices, the manufacturer only provided a couple years' worth of updates. The tablet went from Jelly Bean to KitKat, and there it stayed.

Fortunately custom ROMs have a way of breathing new life into old devices.

Huawei Ascend Mate 2 (Many Left Behind On Jelly Bean) Gets Android Marshmallow Thanks To CyanogenMod 13

When a custom ROM pops up for a device that already has support, it's like watching another politician join an election. You have two options before you, which way do you go? Are you a pragmatist, ideologically driven, or someone who just wants to tinker around?

But when a phone has been neglected for years, the ROM feels more like a savior. For the Huawei Ascend Mate 2, CyanogenMod has stepped into that role.

CyanogenMod's Upcoming Protected App Interface Is Super Slick, And It Supports Fingerprint Authentication

Some of the most interesting additions to Android often come from unofficial sources. Maligned though they may be, Google has incorporated many features previously only found in manufacturer skins into AOSP, and custom ROM developers add new features more or less as they feel like it, some of which are quite useful. For example, the CyanogenMod development team is working on a new integrated system for handling "locked" apps, applications that can't be accessed by the user without a password or other validation mechanism.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Come To The Motorola RAZR, Droid RAZR, Droid Bionic, Droid 4, And Wileyfox Swift And Storm

Time to dust off your old phones. That Droid 4 in the back of your drawer, that Droid Bionic in the shoe box in your garage, and those RAZR and Droid RAZR that you can't even remember hiding or throwing away, they've all gotten a fresh breath of air. If you own of these you've probably scoured XDA's forums for months and found several custom ROMs based on Marshmallow for them, but if you prefer the CyanogenMod flavor in your ROMs then today is the day you can start flashing it.

But that's not all. Other devices are getting their first CyanogenMod 13 nightlies with Android 6.0 as well.
