OmniROM Android 6.0 support for some Nexus devices goes live

If your device is behind with Android updates and you are willing to try some custom ROMs to make things better, you can try omniROM. Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been around since October 2015 but not too many devices have been updated so far, in part because of OEMs and in part because of carrier issues. If you want to try the Marshmallow flavor however, you can try a custom ROM (if you have the capability to do so) different from the popular CyanogenMod.       In case you didn’t know what omniROM is by now, you should keep in mind that it is software similar to the CyanogenMod build. Initial nightly builds of the ROM are destined for Nexus devices like Nexus 5, Nexus 5X, 6, 7, and 10. Future updates will bring Nexus 4, Find 7/a and OnePlus One support, possibly in the next couple of days.   This nightly brings about familiar Omni settings like Status Bar Network Traffic Indicators, Silent Mode, separate lock screen wallpapers and more. Among the new features you will find enhanced Do Not Disturb mode, and weather in the notification bar header.   Since Google has been working on releasing periodic security releases for its most important devices, omniROM is aiming to do the same thing in the future, as soon as AOSP sources are posted.   Source: omniROM  

CyanogenMod and OmniROM update nightly builds to Android 4.4.3, AOKP and Paranoid Android updates coming soon

CyanogenMod and OmniROM now have nightly builds updated to Android 4.4.3, the newest Android update out there. The most popular custom Android ROM teams are now working on adopting the kernel source into their own releases. CyanogenMod is now transferring its nightly builds to 4.4.3 and OmniROM has begun to publish 4.4.3 nightly builds for the devices it supports. Paranoid Android, an alternative ROM that focuses on design changes will releases its own nightlies in its next build. It recently became compatible with CyanogenMod’s standard themes. Android Open Kang Project or AOKP, the creators of the world’s only unicorn-powered ROM, say they have already merged the 4.4.3 changes in their code and a build will be published as soon as tests are over. Nightly builds of any ROM have bugs and are not recommended for full-time use. CyanogenMod has the most updated device selection so far and most flagship phones with unlocked bootloaders will find their preferred custom ROMs except for Paranoid Android.
