CyanogenMod 14 and its importance for smartphones that will not receive Nougat

Android Updates is a subject that brings head to many, and not just because of being the last, but because the user expects the manufacturer to pay attention to your terminal for a certain time. This in high-end can be said that much is true, but in other ranges is much more difficult to have a decent support.

This, in many cases, means that those with experience or courage they will resort to the development community to give, free of charge, support that the manufacturer has not given despite having paid for your terminal. The arrival of Nougat, which has certain special features which excludes most terminals, is no exception to this

.

Many manufacturers because it is Nougat, can not support certain types of terminals , and others who would be able to be updated could not receive Nougat by laziness of the manufacturer. Luckily, CyanogenMod is one of the fastest to appear with the new version of Android ROMs, and the ROM does want to be on many devices.

CyanogenMod 14 even on devices in theory not support Nougat

CyanogenMod 14 and its importance for smartphones that will not receive Nougat

a curious fact is that CM14 is starting to be planned even on terminals that would not qualify to be upgraded to Nougat , even in phase ‘alpha’. In fact, albeit still somewhat unstable, and there is a ROM Nougat for LG G2 , but only for the D800 model (if you do not have that particular model, do not try), which is based on AOSP.

but back to CyanogenMod, terminals such as LG G2 they end up getting CM14, or some mid-range and can be Moto G 2015 . Most more or less recognized the last two years terminals are likely to receive CM14 to enjoy at least most developments Nougat offer.

As already described in another article, the reason for which many terminals will not receive Android Nougat despite being in the plans of the companies is not meet a number of requirements that Google considers essential , but CyanogenMod, luckily for us, do not have those requirements.

yes, we can enjoy a somewhat limited Nougat version, because they can not make older processors support Vulkan, for example, so yes, terminals Snapdragon 800 or 410 may have Nougat, but can enjoy 100% of what offers the version of Android.

How will Cyanogen for our terminals can withstand Nougat?

it is necessary to clarify one thing, and that all smartphones with enough power support Nougat , at least to run the operating system itself, the only thing that many do not support 100% of the features, such as the aforementioned Vulkan or encryption hardware (only support chips ARMv8 or higher).

so what will Cyanogen? Basically provide every model of all the features that you can enjoy with all the characteristics of CyanogenMod . Those features smartphone model does not support, the team will have to disable or remove them to avoid any conflict of compatibility.

Clearly, those terminals that do support all the features of Nougat, receive their ration of CM14, so if you are in possession of a terminal with Snapdragon 820 for example, it is very likely that you have everything Android 7 offers with all that can offer CyanogenMod.

What is the importance of CyanogenMod for users in this case?

for users who do not want or do not know rootear their terminals, clearly this will not influence them at all , as if they upgrade well, but they endure. Obviously, it is better get stuck in an earlier version of Android loaded your phone by ignoring the process, especially if you need for your day.

For those who already know the world of root and do not mind having to do the process with your terminal (or already have done), the development of CM14 is a respite , because they allow you to have the latest version of Android and, in addition, an extra customization offered the famous ROM.

what long have errors? Yes, but keep in mind that is updated almost every day to correct all errors possible and enable it to be used in the everyday user. Perhaps for this reason the ‘nightlies’ are so popular, are a kind of open beta that will help your developers to eliminate these errors.

What features will inherit CyanogenMod Android Nougat?

Given that the versions of CyanogenMod are based on stock Android but with its own characteristics and extra customization, I would say, at least, the vast majority of what has Android Nougat it will CyanogenMod 14 , that . if not for the inherits all the more powerful terminals today

As you can see in the video above, wherein CM14 running on a OnePlus 3 , is clearly seen as one of the characteristics that inherits CM14 is that double window feel how well a 5.5-inch screen, while also sees inherits the hotbar when low the first time the notification bar.

But that’s just what you see, there are many other things that most likely inherit, such as evolution Mode Doze , although there seems to be well implemented in the version seen in the video, we can not forget that developers will give priority so that it can be used in day to day.

Among the features that are not seen with the naked eye, beyond the small improvement to the interface and mentioned, you can choose how much battery you want to spend the applications or improved memory management RAM in which manages the apps automatically to reduce processor load and leave more free RAM.

How do I know if my device is compatible and how to install the ROM when available?

CyanogenMod 14 and its importance for smartphones that will not receive Nougat

as I said earlier, if your device has a couple of years (and even three in some cases, such as LG G2), your phone easy to install CM14 in the near future, but if you want more security, at esta web have a list of supported devices and which are expected to be (might not be a definitive list, but at least gives you a rough idea).

The list, as already mentioned, is very wide, so do not worry if, for example, you have a Micromax , because for that mark there is also support, simply enter the web and you know if you have chances of CM14 on your device. Also I have to warn you if your device is not listed, nothing prevents you may be later, so do not take it 100% safe .

To install ROM, you must first have your rooted device, then read the process of flashing the ROM , paying special attention to the requirements and, above all, the exact model number, if does not correspond with your phone, do not risk ‘brickearlo’ only experience.

it is very important that before installing CyanogenMod 14 (if you have reached your device), understand perfectly the process, you follow the instructions to the letter and, above all, you have backed up your data if it does not go as it should.

of course, backups are essential if you leave bad process or relents. The process usually varies from one terminal to another, so it is best to read the tutorial directly from XDA-Developers forum and follow it to the letter. To download the ROM, although in the post itself the forum will give the link, you can go to repository CyanogenMod ROMs .

for the installation leaves you well, it is imperative that you understand the whole process once you’ve taken into account your smartphone model and have made backups and follow to the letter . . Also, be sure to download additional files that may be needed (. GApps, kernel, etc)
