Cyanogen, a U.S.-based mobile software company, has announced that its final releases for CyanogenMod (CM) 11.0 and 12.0, which will integrate the latest from Android 5.1.1_r5.
Cyanogen is looking forward to the Android M release later this year, and as the development shifts towards CM12.1, many users will be able to get over the problem of slow upgrades to L.
The company states, “Why another CM11 build? Rather surprisingly, many users have been slow to upgrade to L – whether due to the lack of a snapshot release or adverse reaction to the Material design, we don’t know.”
The blog also mentioned, “There shouldn’t be any ‘gotchas’ with regards to flashing these builds for CM11 or CM12 users (minus the obligatory warning to make sure your gapps and etc match the Android version you are using).”
The Cyanogen upgrades should go through without issues, according to the company. However, it has asked the users to update their recoveries when they are upgrading from 11.0 to 12.0. Doing so will ensure SELinux support stays fine. 12.1 nightly users are not compelled to downgrade.
