CM12 nightlies bring Lollipop to eight Xperia devices

Early this month, CyanogenMod turned on the engines that will produce the nightly builds for CyangeonMod 12, which is based on the Android 5.0.

Theme makers, on your mark, get set, and go start porting your masterpieces over to the new CyangeonMod theme engine.

Install CyanogenMod apps even on non-CM ROMs
