It’s only been just a few months since the developers at CyanogenMod gave us CM12, or what is the CyanogenMod version of Android Lollipop. It seems that the team now wants to reduce the time between the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow and what would then be CM13, and so the team has made an early start.


The team has started pushing CM13 code commits to their public repository, is what specifically has started to happen. This doesn’t mean much for end-users right now, but pretty soon those lines of code will end up being a full custom ROM carrying the CM13 name. It’s good to get things started, you know.

Specifically, some code came in for Qualcomm framework variables for review on Tuesday. Then we have some name drops of devices that might get the first official builds of CM13, namely the Nexus 5, the Nexus Player, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One M7, One Max and One M8, Motorola Moto X 2nd Gen. and all three generations of the Moto G, and LG G3 and G4.

As you may see, some of these will probably not receive an official Android Marshmallow build, but CM13 is putting in work for those anyways. The forums are abuzz with speculation on when the first official and stable build will come out – and it would probably be safest to say around June or July 2016. Of course, we do not know what kind of challenges these coders will be facing yet, so that’s all speculation.
