Well, that sure was fast. It only took the largest, greatest online independent developer community 24 hours to spread the CyanogenMod 13 nightly love to an Android device roster of ten. At first, there were just seven phones and tablets supported, but the LG Nexus 5X, Huawei Nexus 6P, and LG G2 have joined the OnePlus One, Nexus 7, LG G4, G3, G Pad 7.0, Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, and Moto X 2014.
Wait, so still nothing on the Samsung Galaxy handheld front? That’s odd, seeing as how the S6, S6 Edge, Edge+, and Note 5 are among the most popular gadgets in the world. Not to forget the older GS5 and Note 4, which racked up tremendous sales numbers back in their day.
Let’s focus on the positive though, and praise the super-fast CM 13 development for the newest Nexus family members. Granted, the 5X and 6P run fully stable, fully polished Marshmallow anyway, but it’s always nice to have a choice. Even if said choice is probably horrendously glitchy for the time being, as it’s likely at least a month away from its first “snapshot” release.
All the usual warnings and precautions apply, no matter if you choose to install CyanogenMod 13 on the “Angler” (Nexus 6P), “Bullhead” (5X), LG D801 (G2 for T-Mobile), D852 (Canadian G3), D851 (T-Mobile G3), or any one of the “magnificent seven” initially compatible with the custom ROM that’s so close to the hearts of both amateur and hardcore software tinkerers. Stay safe and enjoy!
