CyanogenMod announces official CM12 Nightlies


The most popular custom ROM has officially taken the wraps off of its Lollipop phase, according to the team’s blog. Official CyanogenMod 12 nightlies have now been “activated”, though you’ll likely notice a few of their iconic features have not been fully developed yet. For example, Theme Engine support and navigation bar customizations are still absent, though this is to be expected from such a major Android version bump.

Even as nightlies are just now official, the team says it’s nearing its first stable “M” release of CM12. Missing features are still being worked on, and will join new features specific to Lollipop in “the coming weeks”:

CM11 features aren’t the only thing we’re working on, with new features such as Ambient display, a brand new Messaging app, and some small tweaks including a weather option in the new Lollipop extended status bar. Our team is continuing to work on new additions and we have some big plans ahead for L.

It’s also important to note that official support is not yet available for all of the usual devices, but they do have a healthy initial list, including the Nexus 4, 6, 7 (2013 WiFi), the OnePlus One (hey, at least you can still get the community builds for it), the LG G3 and the HTC One M7 and M8. Noticeably absent are the Nexus 5 and the LG G2, but “additional devices will trickle in as the days go on”. The builds are not yet available at the time of this writing, but we expect to start seeing them uploaded on Tuesday.

  2. I’ve been waiting for some news from CM12 for the Nexus 5 for some time now. With all the work they have to do from CM11, bugs Lollipop’s had and the holidays it’s not actually that surprising that it’s taking a long time.

      2. Man I haven’t rooted and flashed a ROM since i traded in my Galaxy Nexus for a Moto X last november. what are the chances CM now supports some of the cool Moto features like “touchless control”? Could you educate me on that? I might jump for a G3 if it does.

  5. Finally. My Note3 (hlte) is ready. Just need to do one last full TiBu and TWRP ROM backup (30mins).
