Moto E 2014 receives Android 6.0 Marshmallow sweetness via CyanogenMod 13

We all are eagerly waiting for that Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to hit our smartphones. The only people who are enjoying this Marshmallow update are the owners of Android One smartphones and the owners of recently launched Nexus 5X and 6P. Users of Motorola Moto E 2014 are the latest ones to join the list.


Moto E 2014 users are in for a special treat as CyanogenMod has released a custom ROM for Moto E 2014 which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. CyanogenMod is essentially based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) source code, which, often receives contribution from people within the Android community.
