I have a Nexus 5X that's happily been running Cyanogenmod 13 for a while now.  Over the weekend I downloaded and installed the new 14.1 release, nightly 19-11-2016.  It had a few show-stopping issues for me, namely the camera not working, so I reverted back to my version 13 install for now.

 

Just wondering if anyone else has tried it out and what their experience has been so far?

Running it on my Nexus 7 (2013), haven't come across any issues it runs really well.

Running happily on my v500/awifi LG G Pad 8.3. The odd glitch, but largely good. Some artifacts on video playback, and occasional app errors.

I'd like to... my S4 GT-i9505 is on Resurrection Remix, which I think is CM13. It works well other than an occasionally battery drain issue by the "Cyanogenmod System Process". I'll have to wait for a custom ROM or someone to do a build I guess.

Running the official CM14.1 nightlies on my OnePlus 3 - facing major GPS issues - GPS is very laggy (doesn't update the location), which makes it unusable for navigation, or for playing games like Ingress or Pokemon Go. This was the main reason I switched back to Cm13 yesterday.

 

Other bugs I've seen are - LiveDisplay not working, in-call volume control not working, echo when using speakerphone and the CM bug reporter crashing on startup. Besides the issues the ROM itself feels extremely smooth - the low touch latency of Android 7.1 is pretty awesome.

I think it'll be an awesome release given the time to iron out the obvious bugs.  Thanks for the responses!

I gave CM 14.1 another go on the latest nightly and also flashed the latest vendor.img, radio.img and bootloader.img and my Nexus 5X is running nicely now - all prior issues are solved!

There's a 14.1 distro for S4 i9505 but there are problems with the camera. I'll give it a go in a few months. I got a tip on the CM13 battery drain by "CyanogenMod System", which is to go into location, triple dots top right, disable wifi scanning. Then you go into backup and reset and reset the network.

I have the 20161206 nightly running on my LG G4, and it's given the phone a completely new lease of life. No major issues to report as yet. There are a few very minor annoyances around scrolling that I expect will be ironed out in the next dew nightly releases.

Noticed the 14.1 builds for m8 hit, actually caused me to accidetnally upgrade past my current baseband.. what a mission to sort that out!

 

 

 

inital reports on the m8 side implys waiting for a little bit is wise.

Is there much to gain by going for CM on a device that is still officially supported by latest android version? I used to run it on all my old phones but have never felt the need since I got a nexus.

Cyanogenmod is pretty much plain Android, without any bloated skins. If your phone is supported and works fine then I wouldn't bother.

Batwing: Is there much to gain by going for CM on a device that is still officially supported by latest android version? I used to run it on all my old phones but have never felt the need since I got a nexus.

 

Customisation is the main benefit for CM I find.  It definitely offers a finer grained control.
