The Samsung Galaxy S5 is scheduled to get Marshmallow eventually, but some models only received Android 5.1.1 in October, meaning most customers are in for quite the wait. Even when the changes do arrive, they may ultimately taste quite a bit like TouchWiz, and that's not a flavor everyone likes having on their tongue. Read More
A few months ago, Nexus 4 owners felt a little bit abandoned when their darling device was left out of the Marshmallow party. While the Nexus 5, 6, 7 (2013), and 9 all got their new dessert flavor, the Nexus 4 was left with a used Lollipop that didn't taste just as sweet as it did when it was first released. But fret no more, you old-school Nexus warriors, CyanogenMod is here to save you from descent into irrelevancy thanks to the latest CM 13 nightly.
Released a few hours ago, this CM 13 nightly for the Nexus 4 (mako) weighs about 277MB and brings a build of Marshmallow to the device. Read More
The CyanogenMod Team continues to expand its list of officially-supported devices, and now the LG section of said list is longer by four entries. Yesterday the CM servers started spitting out nightly builds for the LG G3 S, the LG G3 Beat, The LG G2 Mini, and the LG Optimus L70 smartphones. All of them are CyanogenMod 13 (Android 6.0), and they're all available for download and flashing right now. At the time of writing three of them have two nightly builds, while the G2 Mini has only one. Read More
A few years ago, the Samsung Galaxy S III was everywhere. It didn't have the build quality of an iPhone, but the screen was bigger, and Android apps were really coming into their own. The phone began its life running Ice Cream Sandwich, and most variants stopped at Jelly Bean with no hope of ever getting Lollipop. Read More
Yesterday, CyanogenMod announced the first wave of devices supporting CyanogenMod 13 (CM13) — the latest version of CyanogenMod based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The range of devices was reasonably small, containing just seven entries, but CyanogenMod promised they were working hard to get that list to expand rapidly.
It turns out they weren't kidding. Barely 24 hours later, the first CM13 nightly builds for the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P (codenamed 'bullhead' and 'angler,' respectively) have popped up on CyanogenMod's download page.
As always, nightly builds (and the first batch of them in particular) are not designed to be very stable, and there's no guarantee that everything will work properly. Read More
CyanogenMod has just announced the first nightly builds of CyanogenMod 13 (CM13) running Android Marshmallow 6.0, which will begin rolling out to a handful of select devices. Nightly builds are not as bug-free as snapshot releases, but they are typically still reliable enough that many users don't mind facing a few issues here and there in order to stay on the bleeding edge.
The release of CM13 follows the first snapshot builds of CM12.1 from early September, with CyanogenMod expecting to have a stable version of CM13 sometime in January. Users already running snapshots of CM12.1 are advised to wait until then to upgrade to CM13 unless they are willing to accept the tradeoff in quality. Read More
CyanogenMod snapshots provide the most stable experience you can expect from the custom ROM, and now the latest batch is rolling out to devices. This time around you're getting the November security updates that Google released in AOSP earlier this month. Your device will still run Lollipop. Marshmallow won't appear until CyanogenMod 13.

The CyanogenMod team continues to expand its selection of builds for its aftermarket ROM, and today no less than four new devices are being added. Those would be HTC's 2015 flagship One M9, Lenovo's budget-oriented ZUK Z1, NVIDIA's SHIELD Portable (the original one with the attached controller), and the SHIELD Tablet.
As usual, CyanogenMod arranges builds by codename: the M9 is "himaul," the Z1 is "ham," the SHIELD Portable is "roth," and the SHIELD Tablet is... "shieldtablet." Huh. All four devices are currently on nightly builds of CyanogenMod 12.1 (Android 5.1), and may or may not be added to the more stable releases as they come. Read More
While they share the same name and many of the same features, Cyanogen OS and CyanogenMod are actually two distinct Android ROMs. The main distinguishing factor is that whereas the latter is mostly developed by an open community of users, the former is a commercial product based on the CyanogenMod project but managed and updated by a private company. On top of that, Cyanogen OS also includes a handful of exclusive apps that are preinstalled on retail smartphones like the Yu Yureka or the OnePlus One and aim to improve user experience on those devices.
However, Cyanogen has just announced that it will be shrinking the gap between Cyanogen OS and CyanogenMod by bundling a suite of apps into the Cyanogen Apps Package (C-Apps for short) to be installed on any CyanogenMod device. Read More
