Great news if you ask me more especially for those who like to tinker with the software on their phones, as CyanogenMod 14.1 has been released for a handful of smartphones. According to Steve Kondik, the new CyanogenMod 14.1 nightly builds, which are based on Android 7.1 Nougat,should be available for download starting today. The catch is that this is work in progress, so if you notice that some features are missing, that's the main reason.
Also, Kondik has provided Android users with a complete list of devices that are compatible with the first nightly builds based on Android 7.1 Nougat.
Here are all the phones that support CyanogenMod 14.1: Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Xiaomi Mi3w, Xiaomi Mi4, LG G3, Motorola Moto G variants, LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S5, OnePlus 3, and Asus Zenfone 2.
As mentioned earlier, if you notice that some features that you've been expecting to use are missing from these first nightly builds, don't bother to tell developers about it since they're already well aware of that.
“Bug reports are OK, but please don’t file bugs for missing features since this is all a work in progress. Now is a great time to get involved with the project too- CM is returning to it’s community-driven roots and there are endless ways to help out,” says Kondik in a short statement.
More devices will be added to the list in the coming weeks
If your daily driver is not on the list of supported devices, fret not as developers confirmed that more device would be added to the list over the coming weeks.
Also, maintainers will bring everything up to date, so don't worry if your preferred smartphone has been skipped from the first wave of compatible devices.
At the time of writing, CyanogenMod 14.2 nightly builds for most of the devices on the list had already been released and are now available for download. Don't forget to check out the CyanogenMod download page for the full list.
