First CyanogenMod 13 nightlies now available for select smartphones

CyanogenMod has announced that the first nightly builds of CyanogenMod 13 (CM13), based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, are now available for download. Being nightly builds, the initial CM13 builds are naturally not as stable as Snapshot releases, and the initial batch is limited to a pool of the following seven smartphones:

  • OnePlus One (bacon)
  • Nexus 7 (deb & flo)
  • LG G4 (h815)
  • Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 (mondrianwifi)
  • LG GPad 7.0 (v400 & v410)
  • LG G3 Verizon (vs985)
  • Moto X 2014 (victara)

CyanogenMod points out a few caveats to be aware of if you're planning on checking out the initial CM13 releases. Firstly, it's recommended that if you plan to dirty flash your device (that is, flash without using the "Wipe Data/Factory Reset" option), you must also update third-party add ons in the same pass. And if you're currently using an unofficial, third-party distribution using CM13 source code, it's recommended that you do a full wipe before switching to official nightlies. Finally, CyanogenMod recommends that anyone on the CM 12.1 YOG4P or CM 12.1 YOG7D releases forego the nightlies and stick with the Snapshot release channel.

The list of supported devices will expand quickly from here on out, so if you don't yet see your device just be patient. If you need any help with getting CM on your phone, be sure to hop into our forums for help!
