Back in March, the WiFi variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 tablet received CyanogenMod support. Now, its LTE-capable sibling joins the large crowd of CyanogenMod-supported devices, next to the WiFi variant of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5. Both slates have been around since mid-2014, and official software updates will probably stop by the end of 2016. Fortunately, CyanogenMod can keep them alive much longer than Samsung.
Nightly CyanogenMod builds based on version 12.1 for the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 WiFi are now available for download and, although they can be considered official, they might not be the right thing for everyone. These builds usually work well enough for more adventurous users, but the others might consider them unusable for regular use. Just be careful when flashing your device and follow the instructions - even if everything works well, you will void your warranty.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 LTE does not have CyanogenMod support for now but there is no doubt that it will get it. When will that happen, remains to be seen, but most likely in early 2016.
