CyanogenMod is one of the most popular third-party Android ROMs out there, if not the most popular one. This Android-based ROM is currently available for a ton of devices out there, and it has been that way for a long time now. Having that in mind, Cyanogen keeps on adding support for new devices all the time, and also keeps developing new CyanogenMod builds for various devices, and that has just happened for a number of Android smartphones, read on.
The latest CyanogenMod build is CyanogenMod 14.1, and it is based on Android 7.1 Nougat, which is the latest version of Android currently available out there. Cyanogen has just added CyanogenMod nightlies for the following devices: Google Nexus 5 (hammerhead), LG G Pad 7 LTE (v410), Motorola Moto X Pure Edition 2015 (clark), Nextbit Robin (ether), OPPO R5/R5s (Intl) (r5) and the OPPO R7 Plus (r7plus). Now, as these are nightly builds, do expect some bugs if you decide to flash them on any of the aforementioned devices. It is also possible, and even probable, that some features on the device won’t work at all, though you’ll need to access Cyanogen’s official website in order to know more. The changelog is included with each of the aforementioned downloads, and for more info, you can always access CyanogenMod forums in order to see what exactly is not working.
Now, in addition to CyanogenMod 14.1 builds, the company has also added CyanogenMod 13 builds for some older devices, the Samsung Galaxy S3 (i9305), Xiaomi Mi 4i (ferrari) and the Xiaomi Redmi 3 / Prime (ido). Third-party ROMs are a great way to give your older Android phone new life in a way, make it run smoothly yet again. Of course, such ROMs don’t guarantee great performance, but it’s worth a shot for those of you who are annoyed by laggy software, or are simply looking to add more customizability to your phone. As most of you know by now, Steve Kondik left Cyanogen quite recently, and it remains to be seen how will that affect Cyanogen, it seems like things are still working well, though. In addition, please do keep in mind that Cyanogen and CyanogenMod are two separate entities, Steve Kondik is still very much a part of CyanogenMod.
