Android Nougat
The release of Android Nougat also signals the arrival of new Nexus handsets. Google

Custom ROM developer Cyanogen has begun releasing its Android 7.1 Nougat-based firmware, CyanogenMod 14.1 for the Samsung Galaxy S3, Moto X Play and several other devices.

Smartphones like the Galaxy S3 won’t be updating to Android 7.1 through their manufacturers or carriers, so custom ROMs are an easy way to run the latest Google software on older models. Checkout CyanogenMod 14.1 download links for the Galaxy S3 and other devices below.

As always, users should exercise caution when installing custom firmware onto their devices, keeping in mind that their warranties may be voided. Backing up your device is recommended. Devices must be rooted in order to install such custom firmware.
