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.

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.

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.

The First CyanogenMod 12.1 Snapshot Build In Two Months Starts Rolling Out

While many users of CyanogenMod have moved on to the nightly Marshmallow-based CM13 releases, the more stable snapshot builds are still on CM12.1 (Lollipop). It's been more than two months since we got a new snapshot build, but now one is starting to roll out.

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.

[Update: International Galaxy S4, Australian S5, And S5 Duos] Samsung Galaxy S5 (klte) Gets CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies With Android Marshmallow

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.

Nexus 4 Lives On Thanks To Official CyanogenMod 13 Nightly With Marshmallow

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.

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.
