OnePlus could be dropping CyanogenMod for Home-grown ROM

by Alex Cobb on
tagged , , ,


The OnePlus One has been a huge hit amongst Android fans since it was launched in May. With powerful specs, a manageable price, and the CyanogenMod ROM, it caters to every request the average Android user has. However, recently OnePlus has come up with some changes to this smash-hit formula: it will be replacing Cyanogen with it’s own ROM.

While the details are fuzzy, it seems that OnePlus is planning to cut ties with CyanogenMod in the future in favor of their own Chinese-oriented software. While most of OnePlus’ subscribers in America and Europe have an appreciation of CM, their Chinese-based fans will no doubt enjoy a ROM targeted more towards their tastes.

‘Heads Up’ notification mode from Android added to CyanogenMod

by Christian de Looper on


The CyanogenMod team has added a new feature to its latest nightly build, and it’s a feature that’s been hidden inside the code of stock Android for some time now. It’s called “Heads Up,” and its a notification mode that allows users to interact with floating alerts that are overlaid over what users are doing.

Google hasn’t yet activated the system in stock Android, but many users think it’s much more useful than Android’s default alert system. Basically, there’s a little box that’s displayed at the top of the screen above whatever you’re doing.

It was all too good to be true, wasn’t it?

OnePlus, a small start-up which planned to release its first mobile device this summer, has delayed the project, dubbed the “One,” once again.

Invites for the OnePlus One were supposed to be sent out in May, but there were software bugs that held back the device from release. It looks like there’s been another bump in the road — there are more problems with the software. The device will come running CyanogenMod, the popular Android-based operating system.

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.

Privacy Guard receives new feature in CyanogenMod 11

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 One 2014 phone to feature flagship specs and design, plus CyanogenMod

OnePlus One

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.
