Both Nexii received the CM13 support after the company pushed nightly builds to last years’ Android smartphones such as Moto X. However, the CyanogenMod nightly builds are not designed to be optimum and comes with their own set of risks. There is no guarantee that everything will work efficiently as it is designed to be. It may not be highly advisable to install nightly builds just yet, unless you are feeling adventurous.
