For over a year, Google has been working on Fuchsia — a new operating system designed to run on a variety of form factors. We’ve had an early glimpse of that UI and under-the-hood Google is now working on supporting Apple’s Swift programing language.

CM13 comes to Wileyfox Swift & Storm and Moto RAZR, Droid RAZR, Droid Bionic, Droid 4
We’ve covered both the Wileyfox Swift and Wileyfox Storm in detail (read & watch our reviews here and here, respectively), and now the two phones—which by default run Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android Lollipop—are getting CyanogenMod 13 nightlies (via Android Police). We’ve said that the British-made and well-specced handsets are a great deal for the price if you live in the UK, even though they may not have anywhere near the hype or brand recognition of OnePlus…
You can find CM13 download links for the two phones here:
In addition, it seems a few ancient handsets also just starting receiving their first CyanogenMod 13 nightlies. The Motorola RAZR, Motorola Droid RAZR, Motorola Droid Bionic, and Motorola Droid 4 are all joining ranks among dozens of other handsets. Marshmallow builds for these phones and others have been popping up here and there, but if you’ve been waiting on the tried and true (although maybe not in this case, as these are nightlies after all) CyanogenMod, you’re in luck.
