CyanogenMod 13 Brings Fluffy Marshmallow Goodness To Handful Of Android Devices

Android 6.0, otherwise known as Marshmallow, has been on the scene for less than two months and isn't all that widespread yet. CyanogenMod would like to change that while also showing some love for older devices. To do that, the team at CyanogenMod has begun rolling out the first nightly builds of CM13 with Marshmallow inside.

"We’ve been pretty quiet publicly on the CM13 (Marshmallow) progress, but we’ve been busy bees behind the scenes. Today, we’ve enabled the first wave of devices to receive CM13 nightlies," CyangoenMod announced in a blog post.

CyanogenMod Stay Puft

Here's a list of the first devices to receive CM13:
  • OnePlus One
  • Nexus 7
  • LG G4
  • Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4
  • LG GPad 7.0
  • LG G3 Verizon
  • Moto X 2014

As CyanogenMod notes, the initial batch covers quite a few OEM handset makers and is a "bit all over the place." However, the team is working to bring CM13 to other 12.1 devices over the course of the next few weeks.

Just because CM13 is available doesn't mean you should necessarily install it just yet. CyanogenMod advises users running CM12.1 YOG4P and YOG7D to avoid the CM13 nightly releases "unless you are willing to accept a dip in quality." That's because nightly builds are like early beta releases and could be buggy.
