CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 5.0.x (Lollipop), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *
 */
CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

Instructions

First time flashing CyanogenMod 12.0 on your device, or coming from another ROM?
Download the zip(s).
Install a compatible Recovery
Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM (Optional)
Wipe data & cache partitions of your device (required when coming from stock!).
Flash CyanogenMod.
Optional: Install the Google Apps addon package.

Known Issues

* None

Other Issues?

Before posting on this thread, make sure of a few things:
You've utilized the search function of the forums. Nothing irritates me more than lazy people who do not search for an answer before asking.
If you are the only one having a problem. Boot into recovery, wipe data/factory reset, reflash the rom/gapps and nothing else. Boot up and see if the problem persists.
Make sure your post is relevant to this thread. "I'm having problems rooting/unlocking" is NOT relevant here.

Hey crpalmer,

thanks for this great rom. Everything works perfect

Do you plan to make this an official rom or is it to much work for the amount of users?

Thanks,
Chris

@Chris1308

What is your experience with this rom, any problems?
I'm using Cyanogenmod 11 but need to upgrade due to google battery drain problem.
So I'm interested in your user experience.

Regards

Andre

It was blocked for a long time on a problem with the splash screen on boot (that made it too incomplete for official status). I fixed that relatively recently but it would require a fair bit of work to make it official right now (consolidating it with mondrianwifi and potentially breaking it) and you're right that the user base seems too small to invest the time into that.

Hi crpalmer,

Just a quick message to let you know that I installed this ROM as well and it seems to work really well. Many thanks for your work! Pity that Samsung releases so many versions of their tablets. I understand that you can't maintain and fully support CM versions for all of them.

Thanks,
Hubert

I've had some issues with the latest nightlies.

First I upgraded from 20150812 to 20150826. With the new version everything else worked fine except Chrome. On starting the app I got an "Unfortunately, Chrome has stopped" message and the app just didn't work.

Because of this I downgraded to 20150821 with which I got a "process com.android.phone has stopped" message when booting finished. This message kept on popping up with no way around it. Then I upgraded to 20150824 and the same issue with the phone process remained.

Then I went back to 20150826 (didn't have the 20150812 image available anymore). Phone started working but Chrome still didn't. I also tried Chrome Beta and the same thing happened. Dolphin, on the other hand, worked without problems.


Edit: On logcat I saw the following message which may be related to the Chrome issue:
Code:
Shutting down VM
FATAL EXCEPTION: main
Process: com.android.chrome:sandboxed_process2, PID: 10411
java.lang.SecurityException: Isolated process not allowed to call getContentProvider
Edit2: Decided to try the 20150825 nightly as a "last resort". Now both Phone and Chrome work.
