As CyanogenMod team been fast to adopt the new features for their enthusiastic users, the Android Marshmallow is no exception. The team made it right away, as the announcement on a blog post confirmed CM13 nightlies that are based on the new Android Marshmallow code. The announcement is further extended to the list of some older Android device that can enjoy the Marshmallow based CM13 nightlies.
As we know the nightly release is the beta version of custom ROMs that are to be pushed to users by CyanogenMod. Thus the announcement suggest those users who are right now on CM12.1’s YOG4P or YOG7D builds and having stable experience may miss out the CM13 nightlies.
The list of devices as we mentioned, attached with the announcement of the CM13 nightlies include; the OnePlus One, LG G3, LG G4, LG GPad 7.0, Nexus 7, Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 and Verizon Moto X (2014). Right now the nightlies are made out for the listed compatible devices but seems expending with stable releases.
As the release is yet nightly CyanogenMod team explains it to the users that they may notice some dip in quality. However those going to flash the nightly release of the CM13 on the compatible device can get the touch before the stable release come out. The team is quite confident to finalize the official and tested version by January.
There are some guide lines too those users running the CM12.1 nightly. As it comes, such users can go for ‘dirty flash’ CM13 with some third party add-ons. For instance, those trying out the OpenGapps or Xposed need to update CM13 nightly and then just flash the Marshmallow compatible version. However those with unofficial source code for CM13 need to wipe out the device first before getting the CM13 ngihtlies on their devices.
