Nightly CM13 builds now available for some older, low-end LG phones
Nightly builds of CyanogenMod 13, based on Android 6.0, are now available for a few older and low-end LG handsets. The LG G3 Beat/LG G3 s has a smaller 5-inch 720p display, powered by the Snapdragon 400 chipset, containing a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU. The LG G2 mini features a 4.7-inch qHD display (540 x 960), and also is packing the Snapdragon 400 SoC. Lastly, the LG L70 has a 4.5-inch WVGA resolution (480 x 800) screen, and is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU.

The nightly updates include new code added that day. It often is buggy, laggy and fraught with issues. You should make sure that you know what you are doing before starting the process, because one little screw up will leave you with a paperweight. On the positive side, these devices aren't expected to be updated to Android 6.0.

Check the sourcelink to grab the latest nightlies for each handset. After you download and flash the nightly builds, you will be well ahead of your blowhard neighbor who constantly brags how his high priced flagship Android phone will eventually get updated to Marshmallow. If you want access to Google Services including the Play Store, you will need to download the appropriate OpenGApps package.

I love CyanogenMod's full set of built-in customization on my OnePlus One, yet it remains a bloatware-free OS. Everything is kept simple by default but for those who want more control, just navigate to Settings > About phone and toggle on the Advanced Mode and boom, loads more configuration to tweak to your desires. Keep up the great work Cyanogen!
