CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies land for the Zenfone 2, SHIELD Portable, and carrier branded Galaxy S3s
CyanogenMod developers are still busy working away on Android 6.0 ports for a number of old and modern devices. Recently, CyanogenMod 13 nightly builds have appeared for The ASUS Zenfone 2, NVIDIA’s SHIELD Portable, and a number of carrier branded Samsung Galaxy S3 models.
Starting with the Zenfone 2, a number of the handset’s variants now appear to have nightly builds available or on the way. The Zenfone 2 Laser and Selfie model is available for download, while builds for the regular 1080p and 720p models had been spotted but have either just been removed for polishing or are going through some finishing touches. Here are the links:
- 1080p Zenfone 2 – Z00A
- 720p Zenfone 2 – Z008
- Zenfone 2 Laser/Selfie – Z00T
The NVIDIA SHIELD Portable, which features an integrated controller, also has a CM13 build available under the “roth” name tag. You can grab this download here.
Finally, the classic. Although the Samsung Galaxy S3’s hardware might be showing its age these days, community developers haven’t given up on the handset. The AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint versions of the old flagship have all received the CyanogenMod 13 treatment. Funnily enough, this means that some Galaxy S3 customers will be able to run a Marshmallow build before some of the company’s latest models. You can grab the links below:
- AT&T Galaxy S3 – d2att
- T-Mobile Galaxy S3 – d2tmo
- Sprint Galaxy S3 – d2spr
Of course, nightly builds aren’t necessarily the most stable, so expect a bug here and there. To install CyanogenMod 13 on your device, you will need a custom recovery to flash the files, along with a copy of GAPPS if you plan to use Google’s services. You can find additional information about flashing ROMs in the following article.
