CM12 Nightlies Based on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop Officially Starts Rolling Out

 
CyanogenMod has just announced that they have started rolling out CM12 nightlies, based on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, for a selected few devices. The team considers their work for the first CM12 M release nearly 85% complete, and will spend the rest of this month on porting older features from CM11 and adding support for new devices. 
Most of the CM features that users have come to love and appreciate are currently missing from the CM12 nightly builds. This includes the Theme Engine, the ability to customize the Quick Settings and Navigation bar, quick Lockscreen PIN unlock and more. Most of these features are already under review and it is just a matter of time before these features make their way back to CM12.
The CyanogenMod team is also working on enhancing and adding new features to CM12 including Ambient Display and many other minor tweaks. The full list of devices getting some CM12 nightlies love from today include:
  1. bacon
  2. d802
  3. dlx
  4. e975
  5. e980

The builds for the above devices are classified as “daily driver” with all basic and important functionalities.If you are already running a CM11 nightly on your Android device, you can safely flash the CM12 nightly builds on your device without wiping your data. However, keep in mind that your recovery must be updated to support Lollipop and all incompatible root related apps installed on the /system partition of your device will be uninstalled during the process. You can download the CM12 nightlies for the above devices from here.
The team still plans on rolling out CM11 M13 and will roll out a final build of CM11 before doing a code-freeze of the branch.
