So running Android 6.0 on Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Marshmallow will increase the device overall performance and user experience.


As we know, the Verizon Droid Turbo 2 shipped with Android 5.1.1, which is the latest stable version of Lollipop.

Is CM13 available for Droid Turbo 2 ?

Installing a custom AOSP ROM like CyanogenMod 13 or CM13 requires you to meet tough requirements. There’s no secret that every Verizon device comes with locked bootlader, and they locked up tight. We can use the first Turbo (XT1254) for example, this phone have to wait several months just to be able to get root access, and the procedure is not newbie-friendly.

So, running CM13 (Android 6.0 Marshmallow) on the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 might be possible when the bootloader has been successfully unlocked and we can install custom recovery like TWRP or CWM.
