CyanogenMod 14.1 reaches more handsets

Samsung Galaxy S3 Android smartphone gets CyanogenMod 14.1 support in December 2016
Samsung Galaxy S3
The latest nightly build of this Android 7.1 Nougat-based ROM comes with support for a few additional devices, including the Galaxy S3 and the Nexus 5, as well as the Nexbit Robin, and others.

Cyanogen Inc. has seen better times, but they are not dropping the flag yet. Although the company unleashed CyanogenMod 14.1 recently, its co-founded Steve Kondik has left in the meantime. This custom Android ROM arrived back in early November, and now even more devices receive support for it, including the good old Samsung Galaxy S3. This is great news for those still using Android devices more than three years old, as the 2013 Nexus 5 is also in the list.

The list of additional devices that entered the "nightlies" list consists of the following:

  • Google Nexus 5
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 (i9300)
  • Nextbit Robin
  • Motorola Moto X Pure Edition
  • Oppo R7 Plus
  • Oppo R5/R5s

Next to the above, the LG G Pad 7 LTE tablet can also run CyanogenMod 14.1 now. This work-in-progress ROM is based on Android 7.1 Nougat, but these nightlies that keep showing up might come with various bugs and missing features.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
