Android Marshmallow arrives on Nexus 10 through the first CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies

Despite Google has decreed the end of the life cycle of the Nexus 10, cutting it off from the list of upgradeable devices to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, it is a tablet which is still relevant, perfectly able to meet the multimedia needs of the majority of its owners, thanks to wide 10-inch display with 2560 x 1600 resolution.

The abandonment by Google has certainly annoyed more than one user, since they possess a device no longer updated means not only lose the opportunity to receive new features, but also be discovered with regard to the latest security patches, virtually the same fate at anything but obsolete Nexus 4.

Fortunately we have the Cyanogen team to put a hand out to the non-operated Google tablet: Nexus 10 is ready to rise again with the arrival of the first nightly CyanogenMod 13. This is not the first ROM based on Marshmallow but the first official CyanogenMod, then owners of Nexus 10 that intend to keep updated their terminals will be able to rely on this solution.

As usual you can find the official ROM visiting the dedicated page on Cyanogen site, remembering that in the name of Nexus 10 code is “manta”. The download weighs about 250 MB and we remind you that you must install the correct version of Google Apps in a separate way through recovery mode. There only remains to see the list of downloads.

The Nexus 10 is the first tablet designed by Google and built by Samsung. It has a 10-inch screen (actually 10,055), and has 300 PPI (pixels per inch) that make the Nexus 10 tablet with the highest resolution on the market and the third for PPI (after the Nexus 7 II generation and the iPad Mini with retina display). It held this record at the time of, or kept it until the release of Nexus 7, 2013.

The Nexus 10 is sold directly by Google via the Google Play, but is not currently marketed. As of December 2013, the 16 GB version is no longer for sale. From January 2014 even the 32 GB model was available on the Google Play Store, but the device, therefore, is no longer officially available for sale.
