CyanogenMod 14.1 now available for Nexus 5, Galaxy S3, Nextbit Robin and more
CyanogenMod 14.1 support has reached even more devices. The latest version of CyanogenMod, based on Android 7.1, was made available for the first time on November 8 for ten-or-so popular handsets. Since then a number of additional devices have made the ‘nightlies’ roster.
The most recent handsets to receive nightly builds include Google’s Nexus 5 [hammerhead] from 2013 and Samsung’s Galaxy S3 [i9300] from 2012, as well as:
- Nextbit Robin [ether]
- Samsung Galaxy S3 [i9300]
- Motorola Moto X Pure Edition (2015) [clark]
- OPPO R5/R5s (Intl) [r5]
- OPPO R7 Plus [r7plus]
- LG G Pad 7 LTE [v410]
CyanogenMod 14.1 is a custom ROM that delivers an experience similar to Android Nougat. It’s still a work-in-progress, so flashing any of the nightly builds mentioned below means you may encounter bugs and missing features.
When announcing the first wave of CyanogenMod 14.1 devices, Cyanogen Inc. co-founder Steve Kondik said: “Now is a great time to get involved with the project […] – CM is returning to its community-driven roots.”
Several days ago, Cyanogen announced that the company would be going forward without Kondik, following a post in which he revealed problems he’d experienced while at the company.
