CyanogenMod 12.1snapshots available with AOSP’s security updates

CyanogenMod 12.1 snapshots are rolling out and they are comprised of the security updates that Google released in AOSP in November. CM snapshots are the most stable version of a custom ROM on the market right now, and they are usually pretty close to the original Android OS when it comes to releasing updates.





Keep in mind that this rollout will not move your device to Marshmallow yet, that will happen when CyanogenMod 13 hits. Among the builds you can already find are some Galaxy phones, the Moto X, E and G versions, some DROIDs, HTC One M7/M8, Nexus 7 and even Yureka Yu.


CyanogenMod snapshots show up every month or so and they manage to offer users stable and predictable experiences with less security and bug issues. If you want a stable custom ROM experience, you may want to flash this CM version. You can find the files in the source link below.

Motorola Moto E 2015 and Huawei Mate 2 get nightly CyanogenMod 12.1 support

Motorola Moto E 2015 and Huawei Mate 2 are getting official CyanogenMod nightly builds. You can now download the files and flash them in order to give your device a rebel flair from all that Android conformity. These two budget devices are pretty popular with the public and, since most do like to tinker and bake their devices, especially cheaper ones, CyanogenMod will now probably be the most popular option for a custom ROM when it comes to these two.


Moto E 2015



Moto E 2015 is a small device with OK specs for its price while Huawei Mate 2 wants to be a device with a huge screen and a pretty small price too. They both have CyanogenMod 12.1 (which is the Android 5.1 equivalent) ROM files you can use now.


The Moto E 2015 is codenamed “otus” whereas the Mate 2 is labeled “mt2”. The first has two available builds while the second has three available CyanogenMod builds. Both device builds are around 250MB, but this does not include the Google apps which you will have to flash separately, in another package. Huawei’s device will receive a nice boost whereas the Moto E 2015 users will remain stuck to a pretty much stock version of Android. According to the logs, the Mate 2 has been worked on for a while now, which explains the work put on it.


You should still bear in mind that these are nightly builds; they can be full of bugs and problems, so flash at your own risk. Nightly builds are less stable than stock versions and Cyanogen M or stable releases. Most users may decide to wait for the official release of Android 6, but knowing Huawei and Motorola, you will have to wait for a few months even before your devices get up to date. CyanogenMod is also taking its time working on flagships first. Happy flashing!

CyanogenMod 12.1 nightlies rolling out to most devices

CyanogenMod 12.1 nightlies are rolling out for a few days now and it may take a while for most devices to get official support. Either way, remember this is nightly builds we are talking about, which means there could be lots of bugs on the horizon.


CM 12.1


CM12.1 is based on Android 5.1 and it will install on top of CM 12. Any and all third-party add-on ZIPs will have to be updated manually if you find versions compatible to Android 5.1.

The CyanogenMod 12.1 build is already available for devices such as Moto G, OnePlus One, 2013 LTE Nexus 7, and Moto E. These nightlies will keep coming until most devices are cleared out.

A milestone CM build will show up soon, and that will make things more stable, if you wish to wait for one.
