No custom ROM list would be complete without CyanogenMod, the granddaddy of popular ROMs. Cyanogen went corporate a while back, and while that may have put some die-hard ROM fans off, it has endowed the company with all kinds of resources. That means faster, more stable ROMs.
On November 23, Cyanogen dropped CM 13, the Marshmallow version of this insanely popular custom ROM. For those who don’t know, CyanogenMod ROMs look very much like stock Android but fills it to the gills with additional features and settings. You can also theme it heavily courtesy of CyanogenMod’s impressive theme engine.

Chroma is another ROM based on the Android Marshmallow AOSP (source code) for Nexus devices. The improvements in this ROM focus on improving battery life, performance and system stability, but the maker of the ROM has come under fire from the community for “kanging other people’s commits” (ie ripping them off). If that rubs you the wrong way then you might want to skip Chroma.
There are individual Chroma threads on XDA for currently supported devices, where you can find the most current builds:
Cataclysm is a great ROM for Nexus devices, and it has a very good reputation and solid builds. Marshmallow Cataclysm ROMs exist for Nexus phones but not for tablets, so if you’re rocking a Nexus slate you’ll have to look elsewhere.
Cataclysm is available for the following devices:
Dirty Unicorns is another great, long-running ROM with its fair share of dedicated fans. Dirty Unicorns takes modification seriously and switches up the stock look that most of the previous ROMs deliver in exchange for greater freedom with all the fun stuff we know and love custom ROMs for.
Dirty Unicorns isn’t just about heavy customization. The ROM has tons of features and options, including a Dirty Tweaks section for double tap to sleep and disabling immersive mode messages, data flow indicators, Quick Settings and clock changes, the OmniSwitch floating toolbar, expanded power menu, ad blocker and much, much more.
