CyanogenMod: First Android 5.0 Lollipop nightlies could arrive later this month



Seeing the latest version of Android hit AOSP is an exciting time for ROM users everywhere. It usually means AOSP-based ROMs such as CyanogenMod are well on their way to being updated to the latest and greatest codebase with all the fan favorite ROM features in tow. So where’s CyanogenMod itself stand in the wake of the big Lollipop rollout?

The development arm posted an update today noting that they’ve begun work on Android 5.0 Lollipop, and that folks can start to build it from the public github right now. Unfortunately they aren’t yet providing the ROM in nightly capacity, but the good news is that they don’t expect it to take long before those start showing up — the window has officially been set for late November or early December.

The team won’t look to rush the update out as they’ll want to get all the killer features CyanogenMod has become known for loaded up into Android 5.0 Lollipop, and potentially rework features that don’t fit the new look of Lollipop.

They also touched on device support, noting that while they don’t have a clear idea of how many devices they can support for Android 5.0 Lollipop, it’s looking to be a wider range of devices than they originally anticipated. This might be thanks to Google’s work to make Android work smoothly on entry-range and mid-range hardware. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the near future. For now, you can get your hands on CyanogenMod 11 M12 (which is more of a security and bug fixer than anything else) right here.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. It will be interesting to see how tricky it is to merge in the features from 4.4. I saw the huge 5.0 changelog and “later this month” is an incredibly ambitious timeframe given the incredible amount of changes. Go CM!

  2. Can’t wait to see what new features they implaint in the 1+1

    1. Super excited on mine for a stable release. :D

  3. ordered my nexus so no more flashing this stuff on my G2….however, I wonder if they are going to show the G2 some love. Seems like they are tapering off on including anything awesome in the nightlies.

  4. Can’t wait to get my month-old Nexus 5 some of the good (CM12) stuff! Gives it to us, precious!

  5. On Oneplus one quickly I hope.

  6. I can’t wait to try it on my OnePlus one

  7. Waiting for CM12 and Xposed for ART.

  8. That’s nice but I’d like them to fix major issues in CM11 right now…like sensors breaking on many phones when it goes into deep sleep or after a certain amount of time elapses.

    1. What device do you have? Are you running the stable release or a nightly?

      1. HTC One M8 that was on CM11 M11.

  9. They’ve been keeping up CM11 for Droid Razr Maxx (Spyder), hoping to see they can do CM12 for it, too.
