Update: Following on quickly from yesterday’s initial roll out, CyanogenMod 13 nightlies have appeared for the Nexus 5X (angler) and Nexus 6P (bullhead) smartphones as well. So new Nexus owners haven’t been left out after all.

Along with custom tweaks, the new Nexus builds also include support for WiFi Calling, which is an added bonus for T-Mobile customers who will be able to make use of the feature. As we said before though, these very early builds of the ROM are almost certain to contain some bugs, so it might be worth waiting before considering the latest version of CyanogenMod for a daily driver.

If you are keen to hop into these early CM 13 builds to see what’s new, you can grab the official downloads from here: Nexus 5X | Nexus 6P


As teased a little while back, CyanogenMod 13 nightlies, which are based on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow, has been officially made available for a small selection of smartphones this week.

Although not as stable or feature complete as the current Snapshot builds available for CyanogenMod 12.1, those who like to be first and try out new things might get some pleasure out of hopping over to CyanogenMod’s take on the latest version of Android. Official CyanogenMod 13 builds have been created for the OnePlus One, Nexus 7, LG G4, LG G3, LG G Pad 7.0 (v400 & v410), Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, and the Moto X 2014 so far, with more planned for the future.

If you are already running an unofficial build from the source code, the developers highly recommend that you do a full wipe before switching over to the official nightlies, as they cannot guarantee upgrade compatibility. Additionally, those looking to perform a dirty flash from CM12.1 must update their third party add-ons, such as Xposed or OpenGapps, immediately after flashing CM13.

Support for a larger number of devices should begin to appear in the near future and is expected to “grow rapidly”. If you fancy trying out the custom ROM yourself, check out the official CyanogenMod download page.

  • EngineerGunter

    Yay, bacon!

    • EngineerGunter

      Update: (and no surprise) it’s buggy. Having immediate issues with Bluetooth (Android Wear specifically), WiFi. and themes (couldn’t install or use new themes — even ones I had been using on 12.1).

      Looks like the bacon is still a little raw. Best to not eat it now lest you get food poisoning.

      • moew

        Hahahah, raw bacon. Give it a year or so for them to get it up to “current MM”.

        • EngineerGunter

          Have a little faith. The serious WiFi issues have already been worked out… They’re working pretty fast, all things considered. I’ve already dirty flashed it a second time. May even clean flash to make sure I get the full functionality they’ve already implemented.

        Except android wear that I don’t have no issues at all so really don’t know what ur talking about

  • ben

    yeah, tried to instal it earlier today on my oneplus one, but got the bootloop thing. hadto factory reset my phone :(
    think ill wait a week or so before i update it to 6.0

    • moew

      Doesn’t surprise me. But on your OPO, perhaps you flashed in the wrong order to create the bootloop? Either way, you should stay way or else you’ll go blind.

  • Rahil Zulji

    will there be a cm13 for the galaxy s3 ?

    • no money

      I don’t think so. I also still own Galaxy S3 use it for non-primary use
      The Galaxy S3 i9300 with only 1GB RAM is DEAD.

      • moew

      • Rahil Zulji
