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
Yu's Cyanogen OS-running Yuphoria phone, sold primarily to the Indian market, has had CyanogenMod 12.1 (Android 5.1) available for almost half a year now. The catch is that it's been available as a CyanogenMod nightly build, requiring end users to flash a custom recovery, then a custom ROM in order to access it. Yesterday, the Cyanogen company and Yu itself announced the over-the-air rollout of the finished, consumer-ready update for the stock software build.
The YOG4PAS47N build is Android 5.1.1/Cyanogen OS 12.1 (the official commercial updates from the incorporated company lose the -Mod suffix). To upgrade, users need to be running the latest version of the retail software, YNG1TBS2P2. 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
Back in the early Gingerbread days, CyanogenMod provided geeks and tinkerers with a way of installing the most up-to-date Android version on virtually any device. It wasn't for everyone, but if you were willing to deal with a few bugs and instability issues, you could easily turn your phone into a quasi-Nexus device running stock-ish Android. Updates are a little slower now that commercial entity Cyanogen Inc. is supporting devices, but two of those phones — the Yureka and Yureka Plus — are being updated to Cyanogen OS 12.1, which is based on Android Lollipop 5.1.
