In recent times, most Cyanogen related news has been about which new handset will sport the alternative Android operating system, but today the Cyanogen team has announced the availability of CM13 nightlies for a selection of devices. As you might already know, CM13 is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the term ‘nightlies’ is basically a euphemism for betas. Read more
Had enough of stock Android on your Nexus 5? Then put Firefox OS on it. A developer over on XDA was successful in bringing a Firefox OS nightly to Google’s vanilla smartphone. There are a few minor issues being worked on, so you may want to wait just a little bit longer. Though, people are saying it can be used daily without much of an issue. The two problems have to do with the camera preview and enterprise features. But if you just cannot wait any longer, hit the source link to get started.
Fans of CyanogenMod 10.1 who also happen to own a new Samsung Galaxy S 4 or HTC One will be glad to know the CyanogenMod team has been hard at work making some new variants available and they have cleaned up some of the download pages to make it a bit easier to find the files. The newest variants include AT&T versions for both the Galaxy S 4 and the HTC One. Nightlies for the Galaxy S 4 had previously been made available for T-Mobile and Canadian versions of the device. Apparently AT&T support only required a patch to a previous build. Read more
Itching to get Cyanogenmod installed on your new HTC One? You won’t have to wait too much longer. According to a Google Plus post, Cyanogenmod’s GitHub site has repos set up for the One, and nightlies should begin building for the AT&T and Sprint version of the device “relatively soon.” They’ve updated the CM Wiki with pages for the HTC One to offer a little support and info for when the nightlies do begin building. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as they’re available.

I’ll admit it; I’m a flashaholic. The only problem is that I don’t like that each nightly update is at least 150MB for my particular device. Even though I have unlimited data, it’s still not cool to either wait a while for the latest update to download via my carrier (non-LTE) or having to wait until I get home to do so via WiFi. Granted, this is probably not an issue to most, but if you like your nightlies, then you’ll definitely like this little gem of an app called CyanDelta which makes managing those various CyanogenMod updates a much more easier process. Hit the break to see how you can grab your precious updates without using up too much data. Read more

Those of you looking to get an even bigger CyanogenMod fix are now in luck as the fine development team has announced a new series of the CM releases called “M-Series”. These experimental builds will be released on a monthly schedule, similar to the experimental nightly builds released on a nightly schedule. The big difference between the nightly and monthly builds is simply put— an emphasis of quality of quantity. The CM team will occasionally do a soft freeze of the codebase that will block new features in order to stabilize the newly updated ROM. This action will be done until the build reaches the stable release phase, allowing for users to then be able to enjoy all those new experimental features and goodies.
At the moment, the “M-Series” ROMs are only going to be available for a handful of devices, but don’t fret— the list is ever-growing and there’s a chance you will see your device added here at some point. Hit the jump to see the full list.
The CyanogenMod team has formally announced that official CM10 nightlies will be available starting tonight. For rooted users, this is Christmas time as CM ROM’s are the current king when it comes to the Android modding community. The devices receiving the CM10 nightly treatment will include, but are not limited to:
- The US SGS3 variants
- The Galaxy Nexus variants
- The Nexus S varaints
- The Nexus 7
- The Transformer and Transformer Prime
- The SGS1 variants (Vibrant, Captivate, International, and i9000b)
- The SGS2 i9100g
- P3 and P5 tablets
According to the CM team, “Other devices will join the roster as they become ready and gain their maintainers blessing for nightlies.”
Just keep in mind that you, and you only, are responsible for anything that were to happen to your device if you decide to delve into flashing custom ROM’s. With that said, enjoy and let us know your experience with the CM10 nightlies once they become available later tonight!

One of the most coveted things about CyanogenMod 7 was the ability to customize the heck out of the ROM. This included the much loved Theme Manager which until now was absent from the CM 9 Nightly builds. So once again users of this ROM will be able to change colors of just about everything. However rather than have it in a Theme Chooser app it’s now in a place that makes much more sense: the Settings Menu. Lockscreen shortcuts have been added as well so you can access your favorite apps straight from the lockscreen.
If you’re on another ROM and feel that you are missing out, worry not. One of the developers of AOKP made it known via Twitter last night that their ROM will be seeing theme manager support here soon. You can always check the CM 9 Nightly page to see if your device is supported and if it is enjoy theming it until your heart’s content. As if that wasn’t enough we also have a video of said theming in action after the break. Enjoy!
