CyanogenMod rolls out Android 7.1-based nightlies for select devices

Good news for those of you who don’t own a Pixel or Pixel XL, but still want a taste of Android 7.1 Nougat (plus so much more). CyanogenMod team has announced it has started rolling out the official CyanogenMod 14.1 nightly builds which are based on Android 7.1.

The nightly builds will be available for a host of select devices including the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Xiaomi Mi3w/Mi4, LG G3, Moto G variants, LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S5, OnePlus 3 and the ZenPhone 2.

At the moment, CyanogenMod says that some features like customization options for Themes are not available just yet, but the team is working towards re-adding them as soon as possible. Bugs are to be expected when it comes to nighlies and that’s why CyanogenMod relies on its community so much.

If you too have one of the devices mentioned above with an unlocked bootloader, you can go ahead and install CyanogenMod 14.1 on your phone. And don’t forget to report any bug if you happen to stumble upon one.

The reason why the Android community likes custom ROMs so much is because they are able to add new features, ramp up performance of their device or just change the drab stock Android look into something more exciting.  Also its pretty fun to play around with them!
