While some are patient enough for the official release of Android 7.1 Nougat, some do not have the same luxury or self-control, meaning that this opportunity arose at the finest moment. CyanogenMod, which is notoriously recognized as one of the best custom ROM developers, have released a list of all the devices that would be getting their 14.1 build, which emulates Google’s latest effort, Android 7.1.
There is still a little bit to go before users can get their hands on it, but the 14.1 ROM is currently in the beta phase of development, however Xperia X users are currently able to download the beta version and test it out before the firmware officially releases on their platform.
The reason for the CyanogenMod still being in testing is that the developers don’t feel like the app is sturdy enough, and needs more work to be done before becoming something worthy of public release. Currently, if we are to believe Steve Kondik, there are missing features from the ROM, meaning that there still a fair amount of implementation to be done before the CyanogenMod 14.1 custom ROM can perfectly copy the original Android 7.1 Nougat experience.
- Motorola seems to be leading this chart, with no less than 5 devices in the form of the Motorola Moto G2, G4, G 4G, G 3rd Gen, and G4 Plus;
- Samsung is also on the list with its Samsung Galaxy S5, with no brand-mates around however.
- LG is featured with the LG G3, G4 and last but not least, the LG Nexus 5X;
- Xiaomi also makes an appearance with its Mi3 and Mi 4 handsets;
- ASUS and OnePlus both have one device on the list, represented by the ZenFone 2 and OnePlus 3 respectively.
