Marshmallow-based CyanogenMod 13 Release 1 is now available for download
The most popular Custom ROM maker CyanogenMod team is working very hard to bring latest Android version on the devices. The community’s latest CyanogenMod 13 Release 1 is based on Android Marshmallow aka Android M. The CyanogenMod community supports OnePlus One and Yureka devices. Now the lovers of CyanogenMod can enjoy Android M. The CyanogenMod team today released the first “snapshot” based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow also called CM 13.0 Release 1.
To clarify, snapshots are releases that are deemed stable enough for the public, as opposed to nightly releases, which are only recommended to experts and enthusiasts. The first nightlies based on Marshmallow have popped up all the way back in November. B but now we finally have a snapshot of CyanogenMod 13 Release 1. The latest CM 13.0 Release 1 brings all the notable Android Marshmallow features, including Doze mode and the new permissions model, as well as CyanogenMod-specific features, old and new. That said, some features that you may know from older CM versions are gone, and there are also a couple of new issues pertaining to how you install the update.
The installation instructions of CM 13.0 Release 1 are available in this blog post. If you’re already running a CM 13.0 nightly, you will need to wipe your device before flashing Release 1. The users of Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 9 will need to go through an extra step for flashing the vendor image due to the way Google partitions code in the latest Android version.
The biggest new features mentioned in the official change log are a new screen to show memory usage over time, fingerprint support for accessing protected content, the replacement of the Qualcomm-based messaging app with the AOSP-based equivalent, and changes to Privacy Guard. Notably, several CM features were removed because Google included them in AOSP. The CM 13.0 Release 1 includes the March security updates.
