Nexus 5 CM13 ROM now available

Google has officially released Android 6.0 Marshmallow to Nexus 5, and it has only been a month so we don’t guess you’re bored with it yet. But just in case you’re looking for more fun with Marshmallow, an unofficial build of CM13 for Nexus 5 is now available.

CyanogenMod 13 aka CM13 is the Android 6.0 Marshmallow based release of the widely popular CyanogenMod ROM. Team Cyanogen released the source code for CM13 a couple of weeks ago and since then there have been a lot of unofficial CM13 ROMs for various devices.

The Nexus 5 CM13 ROM comes from developer Dark_Eyes_ over at xda. The ROM is only the first build of CM13 for N5 so don’t expect it to be fully functional or your daily driver yet. The developer hasn’t provided the list of things that aren’t working on the ROM, but as per the user feedback, major functionalities like WiFi, Data, Camera, Bluetooth are working fine.

However, the phone reboots when receiving a call on the current build, also camcorder and sound are not working yet. So yes, this is definitely a no go for daily driver. But if you’re still interested, just grab the Nexus 5 CM13 ROM from the download link below and flash it via TWRP recovery along with Marshmallow Gapps.
