CyanogenMod 13 is the latest version of the popular open source custom ROM. It delivers Android Marshmallow to hundreds of devices, many with no hope of ever receiving an official update. On other hardware, CyanogenMod offers a chance to remove heavy skins and enjoy a mostly stock Android experience. The latest wave of devices receiving version 13 represents both types.

The Xperia T, Xperia TX, and Xperia V have all made the leap from CyanogenMod 12 to 13. These phones launched in 2012 with Ice Cream Sandwich and reached end of life under Android 4.3.

As for hardware getting CyanogenMod for the first time, we have the 3rd generation Kindle Fire HDX (7-inch and 8.9-inch). Both arrived in the fall of 2013.

Another phone is getting its first taste of CyanogenMod, but the version number is 12.1. This is the Galaxy SIII Neo. The nightly build does not have NFC, and the maintainer says it never will due to a lack of necessary source code. Bummer. Nonetheless, I hardly ever use NFC, and many of you probably get by without it too.
