CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.x (Nougat), 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 14.1 on your device, or coming from another ROM?
Unlock Bootloader!
Download the zip(s).
Install Appropriate FW base (STOCK MM 4.21.40.xx base is required) simple FW update package is available at my download link
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. Open Gapps x86 7.1

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 :
    Polaris Office, Chase Mobile, Showbox...
  • DRM content is currently broken
  • Live Display (color calibration) not working yet
  • Screen recording not working
  • Chromecast screen mirroring not working, native casting works though.
  • factory reset from setting menu has been reported to cause recovery boot loops.
  • Battery life is horrible, numerous display wakelock issues

CM14 (not device specific issues)
No CMTE yet
Status bar icon changing broken
CM file manager has trouble accessing external sdcard
Battery profile is non functional/string errors


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.

Official CM-13.0 -> CM14.1 Upgrade Guide

As seen with my previous unofficial CM-13.0 builds based on the MM Stock roms, An upgrade to the MM Firmware and bootloader is required going forward.
This guide is here to assist.

1) Download ROM and 7.1 GAPPS
2) Download my Firmware Update package for Z00A or Z008 . FASTBOOT AND ADB ARE REQUIRED!

just a question. Do i need to be on MM Bloobs or can I upgrade straight from LP bloobs? Also has the Brazilian sensors bug been fixed on CM14.1?
Has this been resolved in stock? I've heard mixed reports. I've included the updated sensor firmware from the .144 stock update so if it's in there we got it.

See post 2 as I update it, gonna try trying o cover all possible situations in guide there.

I'm sorry to be a pain in the ars*. But you've mentioned you're basing on .144 stock update right? Having said that the link you posted with the zip to update bootloader Ive found files mentioning 4_21_40_134.bin (.134) wouldnt this be the reason sensors arent still working for brazilians devices? I had a look at Asus website and this is fix has been implemented on .144 update. So is this update on script and files updating bootloader or are they on the ROM itself..

Now I know the rules on XDA and I wouldnt dare to ask for ETA, however if this is the case, I would ask very politely if you could update the scripts files to .144 whenever's convenient for you and whenever you have time. That would be much appreciate. I will be coming back to this post and will be waiting anxiously for this.. Take you time and Thank you again.
