Video: Elephone P6000 demoed running Lollipop based CyanogenMod 12

Elephone’s on a multi-ROM roll, it appears. Only a couple of days back did we see the P5000 running a myriad of popular ROMs including Xiaomi’s MIUI, and today we’ve received news that the first 64-bit Elephone — the P6000 — can run CyanogenMod 12 (based on Lollipop) as well.

The Elephone P6000 is among the best phones in its range; that’s something we aren’t just saying, but something we established during our review of the P6000. It comes with a 5-inch 720p screen, has the quad-core MediaTek MT6732 64-bit processor, a 13 mega-pixel camera and 2GB of RAM along with a 2750mAh battery. Out of the box, the phone runs only AOSP Android; however, the future looks bright for P6000 users thanks to what’s going on on the dev scene of the phone.

Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think. Also, do let us know if you would prefer a slightly buggy CyanogenMod 12 ROM over the standard AOSP ROM on the Elephone P6000, given a choice!

    I think Elephone has found the solution to their problem. Buggy software…let 3rd party fix it for you. I don’t belive (like on P5000) that this ROM port is their work

    If I have a official costume recovery support I would try & even help out about debugging. Somehow I am skeptical about costume ROM’s (in experience) with out proper (kernel & out of it essential drivers) sources published. Without sources & worked out one’s their is no developer in the world that will be able to get even out of alfa stage with a ROM.
