Paranoid Android 5.1update released, future updates to be less frequent

Paranoid Android 5.1 has finally arrived to select smartphones, but future updates will take even longer to get here. PA is one of the more popular custom ROMs out there, meaning many people will be happy to know that they can try a build based on the most recent AOSP version.

This version took some time to get baked, and this can only mean that future iterations will take just as much or even more time to come out. Some of the Paranoid Android contributors and team members moved to OnePlus and some fresh air needs to blow in order for new changes to be made faster. The project itself is already moved from a weekly release schedule to a “release when appropriate” timetable.

Paranoid Android 5.1 is now available for the newer Nexus smartphones and tablets. The Nexus 10 did not make the list because the team members don’t have one to test on.

CyanogenMod unifies nightly ROMs for all Moto X versions

CyanogenMod released a unified nightly ROM for all US editions of Motorola Moto X 2013 edition. Previously, most of the US carrier versions of Moto X got their own nightly build, after which the ROMs were unified to correspond to all Motorola Qualcomm S4-based phones, including the DROIDDs. All the Moto X builds are now unified under a new banner that bears the codename Ghost.

According to CyanogenMod, the ROMs under Ghost name should work for all available unlocked versions of the Moto X, meaning that the International GSM model is included. T Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and US Cellular versions are included as well. The nightly will not work on the standard AT&T, Verizon and Republic Wireless versions which have locked bootloaders that cannot be unlocked by users.

The Ghost nightlies are the only versions left on the CyanogenMod page destined for Moto X. Custom voice control and notification enhancements will not be available in the CyanogenMod ROMs even though they are official to Motorola.
