Cyanogen makes CM 13.0 Release 1 official. List of supported devices

Cyanogen, the company that makes Android OS more modified & more tweak-able have release a new version of their OS named as CyanogenMod 13 which is based on Android Marshmallow. The latest build of CyanogenMod is Cm 13 which is based on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 .

The official statement, “We left the M release builds in the oven longer than we thought, but nothing a little graham cracker and chocolate can’t make that much better. CM13.0 brings Android 6.0.1 (r17) goodies such as the battery saving ‘doze’ functionality and new permissions model, alongside the CM features you’d expect.

This is the first non-nightly release for CM13, which means this will the first step many of you take into the world of Marshmallow. M brings along a handful of items that will pose issues if you are caught unaware, so in the interest of saving you some potential heartburn, we’re going to highlight that there are a couple of different update scenarios applicable.”

Cyanogen OS 13 brings some very new changes to CM builds.But here’s a detailed list of the upcoming changes in CM 13,

    • ‘Advanced location settings’ renamed to ‘Tri-state location’

    • Reliant on Qualcomm extphone. Currently no replacement.

Primary permission request for ‘Normal’ security level permissions will be handled by our package manager for non Google users, or Google’s manager for those that opt for Googley bits.
      • Users retain ability to control fine-grained permissions via Settings > Privacy > Privacy Guard
