It is always a waiting game for users whenever a new update comes on Android. Thankfully, custom ROMs have surfaced like CyanogenMod, so OEMS and carriers like T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Vodafone, LG and Samsung can provide users with alternatives.
CyanogenMod Answers OTA Delays
Google has released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update several months ago, but not all OEMs and carriers have caught up. There are still devices in line for the update, although a good number has already been updated. Fortunately, as some users usually cannot wait for the official release to be accessible, third-party players have started offering custom ROMs.
This is where CyanogenMod comes in.
The third-party group has been providing a number of ROMs for the past years to both waiting and no-longer-in-line devices. This time, CyanogeMod is trying its hand on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.
Galaxy S5, LG G3 and Xperia SP Update
According to Android Police, CyanogenMod 13 nightlies with Android 6.0 is now available for Galaxy S5 on Sprint, US Cellular, and Vodafone. The update comes at a time when T-Mobile has started releasing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to the Galaxy S5. The said update for the carriers will join the GSM version compatible with T-Mobile and also consequently supports Galaxy S5.
The update is not only available for Galaxy S5. CyanogenMod 13 is now also accessible to T&T LG G3 and the Xperia SP. Before updating the said devices, it is important for users to know how to flash their devices properly.
Another report from Liliputing claims that Gello is coming to CyanogenMod 13 as well. CyanogenMod announced previously that they were developing a new web browser for their custom version of Google Android. This time, it is finally ready. Developer Joey Rizzoli confirmed that the Gello web browser will be accessible on several devices running on CyanogenMod soon.
