In response to some leaked press renders of the upcoming OnePlus One smartphone, Carl Pei took to the company’s official forums to share some official pre-production images of the user interface. Named CyanogenMod 11S, the OnePlus One will be running a customized version of Cyanogen’s latest operating system. » Read the rest
Official CyanogenMod Nightlies support has arrived for the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7″ and 8.9″. Currently the builds show up as experimental, but regular nightlies are set to be released starting today. These ROMs are running CyanogenMod 11.
As is the usual case with ROMs on Android, users should exercise extreme caution. Sometimes these files aren’t stable, although sometimes they are. Users should make sure that they know what they’re doing before they attempt to install anything.
Today the latest M release of CyanogenMod 11 was released, M5, bringing a number of bug fixes. This update comes right on time, a month after the release of M4.
You can download the update now, but you’ll first need to find out if your device is compatible. Some devices, like the US Galaxy S III, and the International Snapdragon 600 powered Galaxy S4, aren’t yet compatible because of a couple of issues that need to be ironed out.
If you’ve taken a quick gander over in CM11′s Privacy settings, you’ll see that a new feature has been added. Over in the advanced AppOps view, a new panel has been added showing apps that start up upon your device booting up. This allows you to pick and choose which apps you would like to disable upon booting up.
Certainly a cool feature if you ask me. Out of curiosity, any of you guys use CM as your daily ROM?

OnePlus, the Chinese company from Oppo executives, has recently announced they’ll be releasing their first phone in 2014 with CyanogenMod pre-installed. Fortunately, it still looks like mid-2014 is going to be the release date, and CM will still be the default OS. On their Facebook page today, they’ve clarified that the device is also going to launch with the top specs and design for a 2014 flagship device, which likely means at least a 1080p or 2k screen and a processor with more cores than you can shake a stick at. I’m not sure exactly what they’re planning on doing in the design department, but they’re aiming big, and that’s always a good thing.
Hopefully we’ll hear more about this device in the near future, including when we can expect to see it hit shelves (and if it will be released outside of China at all) and what’s going to be included under the hood.

If you feel that the AOSP gallery app is sorely lacking then you’re not alone. So much so in fact, that the group behind CyanogenMod has debuted a new Gallery app for you to try. Currently in beta, you have to join the Google+ Community here, and become a beta tester here to test it out. Once you do, you’ll be able to view all your pictures in one centralized location. On top of that you’ll see various cloud services such as Flickr, Picasa (Google+), Facebook, and Dropbox integration. It features Moments support that automatically groups and classifies media based on metadata. It has video playback and GIF support.
For an app in beta, this is very much polished. Even as such, CyanogenMod isn’t resting on what it has already created. It plans on adding KitKat immersive mode, editor support, as well as whatever users let CyanogenMod know about. On top of that they plan on squashing all the bugs. Your mileage may vary as some users are getting constant force closes with the app. It works just fine on my Moto X, and we’ve already seen a bug fix update since its debut yesterday.
The folks that walked away from Oppo started up manufacturer ‘OnePlus,” shortly after leaving their previous jobs. Today, the company announced that it will be finally producing its first device, which will run a version of CyanogenMod and will be available in the first half of 2014 in “select markets.”
The goal is to “put the best software on the best hardware.”
The company won’t simply be creating the device and then loading up CyanogenMod on it— the company will apparently be getting tons of input on the hardware from the CM team, which is always a good sign.
The phone, expected to be called the OnePlus One, and should also have some extra software features built-in.
Details are a bit shady on this one but expect more to come out in the near future.

If you are one of the individuals who managed to get their order in and filled for an OPPO N1, but opted for the regular version instead of the special edition CyanogenMod version, there is a new option to get CM on the device. CyanogenMod announced yesterday the availability for download and install the CyanogenMod firmware that normally would come on the special edition. » Read the rest
The folks over at CyanogenMod have a little celebrating to do tonight. The popular Android ROM just hit 10 million installs as of 3:44 p.m. Eastern U.S. time, and the team expects the growth to continue.
It took nearly four years for CyanogenMod to become a cornerstone of the Android rooting world, and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down with the Oppo N1 coming on the 24th of this month. Congrats to the CM team and best of luck in the future!
The Oppo N1 went on sale last week, but not the very anticipated CyanogenMod version. Well good news for those of you waiting to get your hands on one because it will be available starting December 24.
They didn’t want to release the phone until is passed Google’s CTS and CDD certification programs, which it did. This means that it has access to Google’s official apps as well as the Play Store.
Oppo didn’t tell us the price, but we are assuming it will cost the same as the regular model, which is $599.
