Marshmallow-flavored CyanogenMod 13 now available for your Nexus 6P or 5X handset
Just a couple of days ago, CyanogenMod 13 nightly builds based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow arrived for a slew of noteworthy Android devices, most notably the LG G4, OnePlus One, Verizon's LG G3, Moto X 2014, HTC One M9, and several other handsets. Well, it seems that the support list just grew by scoring two noteworthy additions - the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X, Google's newest vanilla Android warriors. 

This means that users willing to experience a nearly stock variation of Android, but with a host of added features and customization option, are now enabled to do so. However, it is quite important to say that the nightly builds are usually quite buggy and not stable enough to be used as daily drivers at such an early stage in their development. Various issues might occur with each nightly build; often, fixing one issue creates another one. It usually takes some time before an all-around stable build becomes available. 

You can download the nightly builds for both of these Nexus phones by heading to Cyanogen's website (we've provided links right below). Have in mind that you'll find them listed with their codenames - "angler" for the Nexus 6P and "bullhead" for the Nexus 5X. Of course, in order to flash them, you will need to have a custom recovery installed on your handset.

Because CM adds a lot of useful features to the stock android experience.

Same here, I would rather subjugate myself to an LG phone over using Cyanogenmod.

Id rather choose to get a Sony or Lg Sony and Marshmallow has now alot of options... I just learned that those ROMs are full of bugs... Some of then in models like Galaxy S3 has no Flash working on Camera, Why would anyone would like to spend hours rooting and flashing and at the end not getting the flash working... It doesnt make sense.
