The development team over at CyanogenMod this week announced that a new Android 6 update has been made available for a select number of Android smartphones and more will be added to the supported list over the next few weeks.
Smartphones currently supported include OnePlus One (bacon), Nexus 7 (deb & flo), LG G4 (h815), Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 (mondrianwifi), LG GPad 7.0 (v400 & v410), LG G3 Verizon (vs985) and Moto X 2014 (victara)
The CyanogenMod team explains more about the new update :
We’ve been pretty quiet publicly on the CM13 (Marshmallow) progress, but we’ve been busy bees behind the scenes. Today, we’ve enabled the first wave of devices to receive CM13 nightlies. Now, before you jump head first into flashing these, please take a moment to read the items below – as they will impact your experience.
1. If you are on CM 12.1 YOG4P or CM 12.1 YOG7D releases, we recommend you stay on course with the SNAPSHOT release channel and not jump to nightlies unless you are willing to accept a dip in quality. Our stable branches are vetted, CTS run and (in some cases) shipped on retail devices – which means the quality of those branches is far and above that of nightlies. We’d advise these folks to stay on the SNAPSHOT train, and we’ll have a quality approved SNAPSHOT for CM13 sometime Jan.
2. If you are on a 12.1 nightly, you can ‘dirty flash’ CM13 (read update like any sane person) as long as you also update your third party addons in the same pass. This means, if you use Xposed, OpenGapps, etc. flash a Marshmallow compatible version of them immediately after your CM13 flash.
3. If you have taken any unofficial, XDA or self made builds of the CM13 source code, we’d advise you to wipe upon coming to our official nightlies as we cannot ensure upgrade compatibility with third party distributions. Of course, you are welcome to not heed our suggestion, but don’t blame us if something goes sideways.
