CyanogenMod’s team has started working on an Android 6.0 release

1 min read

Now that Google has released the code for Android 6.0 Marshmallow through the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), developers can start working on bringing the new update to their custom Android ROMs.  A redditor by the name of burritofire revealed this morning that the CyanogenMod team is already hard at work on CyanogenMod 13.0, which will be the name of their official Android 6.0 release. You can even see a number of entries for the new update on the code review site for CyanogenMod, which is definitely exciting. 

Earlier this week, Google released the factory images for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow release, and the OTA’s followed soon there after. Google also pushed the code to AOSP earlier this week so custom ROM makers like CyanogenMod can get started on making their Marshmallow release happen. Thanks to a redditor by the name of burritofire, CyanogenMod has already started work on CyanogenMod 13.0, which will be their Marshmallow release. On their code review site, you can see a number of entries for CM 13.0, which is very exciting. While CyanogenMod has indeed begun working on CyanogenMod 13.0, that doesn’t mean it’s coming anytime soon. While Marshmallow is a relatively small update, compared to Lollipop at least, these things take time and can be very buggy when they first start rolling out. In the past, we’ve seen new versions of CyanogenMod roll out to Nexus devices first, and I’d expect that to be the same this time around as well. It’s just easier to start with devices that already have branches of code from Google, which are the Nexus devices. After a few days it’ll likely branch out to the other current flagships, including the Moto X Pure Edition, LG G4, and a few others. It’ll be interesting to see if the Galaxy Note 5 gets CyanogenMod 13.0 support right away considering it uses an Exynos processor.
