CyanogenMod 13 Alpha Released For Google Nexus 5
All of Google’s Nexus devices are pretty barebone when it comes to their operating system with absolutely no bloatware to hamper performance and cause unnecessary headaches when clearing out system memory. Some users however still prefer to use custom ROMs on their devices instead of official firmware.
For such Nexus 5 users, who even though have upgraded to Android 6.0 but aren’t happy with it, one of the most popular custom ROM, CyanogenMod 13 has been released. Besides the typical Android 6.0 features, CM13 offers performance tweaks, CyanogenMod’s visually appealing interface, custom email inbox and numerous other value-added features to enhance user-experience on Google Nexus 5.
Since CM13 is an unofficial firmware and also in Alpha stages right now, there will be frequent updates to it as well as numerous issues so it may not be the right firmware for everyone yet. Any update can cause data loss or some other harm to the device and only the well experienced Android users should switch to it.
Also the ROM is only available for the LTE models of Nexus 5 and can brick other devices if someone attempts to install it on those.
If someone is still interested and believes they can adequately deal with the issues, the ROM can be found here on XDA Developers Forum.
