CyanogenMod has officially released Android 7.1 Nougat based CyanogenMod 14.1 Nightly build for a range of devices, which includes Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, OnePlus 3, LG G3, LG G4, Moto G, Galaxy S5, Zenfone 2, Xiaomi Mi 3 and Xiaomi Mi4. Based on the Android 7.1 Nougat, the CM 14.1 updates bring a number of useful additions, which will enhance your Android experience.
One of the main advantages of CyanogenMod custom ROM is that it updates many devices to the newer version of Android OS before the manufacturer has officially made available. For example, CyanogenMod 14.1 brings the latest Android 7.1 Nougat to a number of devices that will not get official update, such as LG G3, Galaxy S5, Moto G, etc.
Currently the Nightly build of CyanogenMod 14.1 supports following devices. And as usual, more devices will be added to the list over the coming weeks.
- Nexus 6P (angler)
- Nexus 5X (bullhead)
- Xiaomi Mi3w/Mi4 (cancro)
- LG G3 (d855)
- LG G4 (h811/h815)
- Moto G (falcon/peregrine/thea/titan)
- Galaxy S5 (klte/kltedv/kltespr/klteusc/kltevzw)
