Android OS is a very versatile platform, though that’s not exactly a secret. There are tons of different iterations of Android OS available out there, from various skins that OEMs put on Google’s OS, all the way to third-party OS’ based on Android. There are tons of ROMs based on Google’s operating system, and CyanogenMod is definitely one of the most popular ones out there. CyanogenMod has been around for a long time now, and we’ve seen tons of various version of this ROM. CyanogenMod 14 is based on Android 7.0 Nougat and is currently in development, but we’re not here to talk about that variant of the ROM, but the one that came before it, CyanogenMod 13 (CM13), read on.
CyanogenMod 13 is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and there are tons of CyanogenMod 13 builds out there which are available for a number of devices. Well, those of you who like to experiment with test ROM builds, you’ll be glad to know that a number of new CyanogenMod 13 nightlies are now available. If you own the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, Motorola Moto X (2013), BQ Aquaris M5, Sony Xperia Z, Sony Xperia ZR or Sony Xperia ZL, you can now download a CM13 nightly build and enjoy in this ROM. Do keep in mind that these are test builds, of course, so bugs will be present here, and chances are you’ll stumble upon quite a few of them as these are early builds of CM13 it seems. You’ll need a custom recovery to flash any of these ROMs to your devices, of course, and we do suggest you don’t do it unless you know exactly what you’re doing considering you could brick your device in the process.

As you can see, there are quite a few devices listed in this article, including a tablet even, which is a nice addition by the CyanogenMod team. The Xperia Z and Motorola Moto X (2013) are also worth mentioning considering these were flagship devices back in the day, and we’re hoping that the CM13 ROM will be able to rejuvenate both of these devices, at least to an extent.
