CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 6.0.x (Marshmallow), 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 13.0 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.

Broken Features / Known Issues

  • VIDEO ENCODER/DECODER ISSUES: This results in green lines on videos/pictures taken using the Intel HW encoder/decoder and other playback issues dependent on video formats. See the list below:
    1. Snapchat: thin greeen line tends to appear on recorded videos for snapchat
    2. Asus Pixelmaster Camera App: Super resolution mode does not work. Turning off "Optimizations" from settings clears up any green line issues.
    3. Some video formats do not play as expected
  • FM Radio is unsupported.
  • audio is a little weird in Real Racing 3.
  • sim 2 cannot be disabled (this is true for all CM builds on non qualcomm hardware)
  • Other than Fugu (Nexus Player TV box) there are no Vendor released M x86/x86_64 builds in existance. You may experience some issues with GAPPS and some known apps not loading or working correctly. Below is a list of KNOWN apps that do not currently run on CM13 based x86 Zenfone 2 builds :
    Ingress, Polaris Office, Chase Mobile, Showbox...

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 or ask the same question over and over again.
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.
LOGS LOGS LOGS!!!! Use this: SysLog by Tortel

As the Zenfone2 has multiple models from multiple countries please include the following information in your report:
model #
CPU Speed / RAM Size
device state when errors occur (BT/wifi/nfc on ? On a call ? sitting idle on shelf ? )
method to reproduce if you've found something consistent

Google apps addon:
Recommend GAPPS for now as the updated x86 gapps. Our resident x86 GAPPS guru @deadman96385 has been working with the opengapps crew to keep these current for us.

Flashable Modem updates:
Currently only supported in jrior001's unofficial TWRP
May or may not work in others

** see this post for more info **
Intel stores some modem firmware in the OTA's in a file labeled "ifwi.zip"
These are flashable zips to receive the updated firmware while staying on custom ROMS
**THIS IS A ONE WAY PROCEDURE, JUST LIKE THE OTA's THERE IS NO KNOWN WAY
TO FLASH BACK TO EARLIER MODEM FIRMWARE, PROCEED WITH CAUTION**

IF you still wish to proceed, current flashable ifwi zips are available HERE for Z00A AND Z008

FAQ
Does Official TWRP work?

* Yep
* Unified recovery builds as of TWRP 3.0.0-0, same build for both Z00A/Z008

Can I use a custom kernel with these builds?
* At your own risk, don't complain here if something gets broken in the process
*Also, doing so makes any feedback useless to us because the kernel and the ROM are a complete package and changing part of that means you may have broken something beyond our control.

Will this be an Official ROM?
* When all the show stopping bugs are fixed and all the upstream commits are merged, yes.
* Until then, no because CyanogenMod has very high standards for accepting new devices.
* As of 3/17/16 we now have official builds
Do I need to unlock the bootloader?
* Yes.

Upgrade from CM-12.1 ?
* Tools have been put in place to make upgrading from 12.1 nightlies smooth however backups are always recommended. Make a backup and attempt upgrade from 12.1 -> 13.0. Make sure to Flash 6.0 gapps at the same time. 6.0 only applies the proper permissions for system apps on first boot.
* If the above fails to load smoothly, restore your backup, take the necessary backups of apps and such and make a clean flash upgrade instead.

EXTERNAL SDCARD in M
* There were major changes in AOSP in the handling of storage.
* Two options :
(1) used as external storage. Removable, plug and play storage like we all know and love.
(2) used as Adoptable storage. non removable, Sdcard becomes an extenstion of your /data partition. Removing Sdcard will cause signifigant data loss.
* On first boot you are presented with the option to choose how to handle your sdcard. CHOOSE WISELY
* read more about this feature in this article from android central

Green lines on Pixelmaster camera/Snapchat
* In the Asus camera app disable "Optimizations", this should clear green lines/distorted pictures here.
* In Snapchat, issue is far less intrusive and there is no workaround.

FM Radio
* Currently this is unsuported. As of yet we have not managed to figure out how Asus made this feature work. Should we figure that out We'd love to support it but until then it is not a high priority issue to resolve. ** UPDATED** I found some source code for the FM radio implementation but it's clearly marked as proprietary and unuseble by us at this time.

Call Recording
Native Call Recording is a feature that while only legal in some countries, has become very popular on CM.
Currently we do not have full audio HAL source for Intel devices and have no way to implement this in CM for this device.

C-APPS
They're are currently no C-APPS packages for CM-13. Due to the way M handles system app permissions this is not likely to be available at any time in CM13.

I'd like to make a donation

Updates issues and notes on upgrading from cm-12.1 .

RIL connectivity is not very good right now, requires manual setup on most sims. Clean install w/gapps is preferred, but CM team goes to great lengths to make sure upgrade path is smooth so a flash-able update from 12.1 nightly "should " work fine. Just make sure to flash your gapps w/ROM prior to rebooting. Flashing gapps later is not something that is going to work well for you.

We have resolved the DRM video issue and the audio lag in games has yet to be an issue in cm-13 thus far.

I manually ran a z00a build to test the setup. Assuming all goes well, there will be a z008 build tomorrow.

Thank you! No rush at all, of course.

We weren't going to do the thread till tom but somebody found the test build.... It will come, but probably not till next nightly cycle

    Friend, not trying be rude but the question was not for you. Moreover his answer could not be more obvious.

    I asked the @ jrior001 because they have already been merged with fotes codes of CM14 already should be tested.

    Does the CM13 will be ignored so we can get faster the CM14?
    Would not it be better finish rom that is already very stable.
    So let me explain and discuss a few things here with what we've learned related to the MM release.

    1. BOOTLOADER/IFWI UPGRADE IS REQUIRED. You have to be on the newer M release FW to boot the newer kernel, this is non-negotiable.

    2. The new bootloader requires signed boot/recovery images. Worth noting but not a big deal.

    3. It does not magically fix every single problem with current CM/AOSP based ROMs.

    I already have working builds of CM13 based on the MM release. In fact I quietly made them public a few days ago. The problem here is how to upgrade folks easily to the newer fw. Our twrp builds will not flash the IFWI FW currently and I have not been able to make that work. Therefore this upgrade requires folks to manually fastboot flash the new FW and a new recovery. This is not ideal for nightly build users. With CM14 approaching it may be best to leave CM13 on old blobs for now and make a clean transition and requirement for CM14 to upgrade the Bootloader.


    For the brave who are not concerned with getting new nightlies( I make no promises to keep uploading fresh builds based on M BL) and want to make the jump the info and instructions can be found here

    Z00A

    And here
    Z008
    http://theflamingskull.com/downloads/z008/MM_BL_STUFF/


    I've modified the BL unlock script and repurposed it to flash the new FW and recovery, there's scripts for win/mac/Linux. Theyve been tested but Use at your own risk.

    We have removed the "ALPHA" from the subject of this because we feel that the CM-13.0 version is either on par or better than the 12.1 version with the latest sets of fixes.

    Oh, and, tomorrow's build may even fix the ugly incoming call UI (as well as general ugliness in the incall ui).

    All,
    Please keep this info in mind when updating with new nightlies daily. You are running builds from a highly active development channel. While things are generally stable, and code changes are fairly well reviewed, issues will creep in now and then. This is part other development process. Sometimes changes need further exposure to detect all the issues that may arise. Sometimes things that tested well in the lab, don't fair so well with users. This weeks topic if interest appears to be further implementation of live lockscreen, as the bug reports suggest. Please consider this when making bug reports/complaint when you're running bleeding edge builds.

    Crpalmer and I both keep up with the thread pretty regular, an although we don't always comment here we takes notes of the daily issues and discuss among the CM team as needed. Mainly we focus on fixing device specific issues and help out as needed on the platform side.
