ABOUT: CyanogenMod (pronounced sigh-AN-oh-jen-mod), is a customized, aftermarket firmware distribution for several Android devices.

CyanogenMod 12.1 New Features
LiveDisplay: This is one of the major features that CyanogenMod has added to their ROM in recent months. As described by the team, this feature automatically optimises the screen depending on the time and ambient conditions to reduce eyestrain and improve readability. It also allows users to change the color temperature and calibration of the display depending on the time of the day.
LCD Density: This feature allows users to change the software density of their phone. This will allow users to display more (or less) content on the screen depending on their preference. A lower number means more content will be displayed on the screen and vice versa.
Notification Manager: This is a new entry in the Settings menu in CyanogenMod 12.1/12. It contains options to enable/disable Heads up notifications, the ability to filter notifications from the installed apps, change priority of notifications of the installed apps, check the apps that can read notifications on the device and more.
Lockscreen visualiser: Google added a beautiful music lock screen widget to Android with Lollipop. CyanogenMod has further enhanced this feature in their ROM by adding a visualiser to it. When any music is being played, the lock screen will also display visualisations apart from the music controls.
Ambient Display: Google added a new Ambient Display option in Lollipop on the Nexus 6, which is similar to the Moto Display feature of the Moto X. The CyanogenMod team have also added this feature to their ROM. When there is a new notification, the display of the device will “breathe” to show the unread notification. The display will also light up when the user picks up the phone so that users can view any important notifications at a glance.
