The CyanogenMod 14.1 Nightlies have come up, and this firmware would be available for the Samsung Galaxy S3, Moto X Play and other devices.
Custom ROM community CyanogenMod is an open source portal for getting ROM updates for Android devices. CyanogenMod provides some features that pure Android devices lack, like theming and flexibility to the UI. It also provides the running of FLAC files on Android.
CyanogenMod is built on Android's existing code, along with third party code on top of it. Developers of CyanogenMod say that there are no spywares and bloatwares on any firmware of the CyanogenMod. Moreover, just like any Android update, CyanogenMod delivers updates over the air, and is completely free.
Some phones that haven't received the Android 7.1 Nougat update, can do so by downloading the CyanogenMod 14.1 Nightlies. Manufacturers like Samsung and Motorola only provide two to three Android version updates for their older models, and Galaxy S3 is one such phone that won't be receiving the Nougat update.
To install a CyanogenMod, users have to keep in mind that doing so voids the phone's warranty, so it is advised that CyanogenMod is installed after the expiry of the warranty of the phone.
A quick search on Twitter would reveal that many devices are running the CyanogenMod 14.1 Nightly build.
Here are the download links for the various models of phones that are available to run on CyanogenMod 14.1 Nightly build.
It is advised that before installing these firmwares, the phone is properly backed up and there is more than 50% of battery remaining in the phones.
Stay tuned for more CyanogenMod 14.1 Nightlies updates.
