YU Yuphoria gets CM 12.1 OS nightlybuild YU

Users of Micromax's recently launched YU Yuphoria can now check for and download the new CyanogenMod 12.1 nightly build that is based on Google's more recent Android 5.1 (Lollipop) operating system.

Like Android 5.1, the latest CyanogenMod 12.1 codenamed 'lettuce' nightly build, apart from bringing along CM 12.1 OS, also fixes multiple inherent bugs in CyanogenMod 12 OS (based on the older Android 5.0.2 Lollipop that drives YU Yuphoria.)

According to Android Police, users of Yu Yuphoria can check out the latest CM 12.1 OS nightly build in the form of a 365MB sized file. This nightly build is available for direct download via the official Cyanogen download page.

New features

Users of YU Yuphoria can check out for newer aspects such as a brand new app theme, support for integrating multiple user accounts, new LED notification mechanism and specifically the CyanogenMail feature, as per a Droidguiding report.
