Offical CyanogenMod 12 nightly builds arrive for many devices, Android 5.0 Lollipop for the masses

Rejoice, Android fans! The most popular aftermarket Android distribution, CyanogenMod, has finally hopped onto the Android 5.0 Lollipop bandwagon, sounding the horns of CyanogenMod 12 and announcing its long-anticipated official arrival. True, unofficial CM 12 builds have been making the rounds for select popular Android troopers over the past month or so, yet those reluctant to tinker with somewhat shady, unofficial firmwares had to wait for Cyanogen to take its time.

Of course, we are dealing with nightly builds, which means that some rogue bugs or issues are quite likely to be encountered, yet it's certain that these will be dealt with in the foreseeable future. At the moment, Android 5.0 Lollipop under the form of official CyanogenMod 12 nightlies is available for the following devices: 

Provided that you own one of the above devices and CyanogenMod 12 seems like the perfect firmware to you, don't hesitate to visit Cyanogen's ROM repository by following the source link.

I wish the guys at Cyanogen release a special CM 12S for the Onplus One just like the 11S. There is so much room to incorporate new features and gestures.
