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.

Last month, CyanogenMod announced it partnered with OnePlus to release a CyanogenMod powered smartphone to the market this year. OnePlus has now announced that the upcoming device, the OnePlus One, has reached the ‘feature freeze’ phase of development.

The company already started testing its first prototype, A0001, which arrived to their office on Monday. There’s no detail about the smartphone’s specifications but the company promised that the device would come with the best specifications. The company says that the device still needs a lot of improvements before releasing the final product to the market but they are “still loving it!” » Read the rest

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.

CyanogenMod’s GalleryNext Photo Gallery App Now Available as Beta in the Play Store

GalleryNext1If 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.

OnePlus

After learning that OnePlus was working on their first smartphone, there was not much information beyond that. But now the CEO has shed some light on the device. Likely named the OnePlus One, the device may feature build quality that rivals Apple’s smartphone. He says that “Appearance wise, we’re confident our phone is more attractive than just about any phone on the market, with the exception of maybe the iPhone.” That is an impressive statement as only HTC has really come close to Apple’s build quality. » Read the rest

OnePlus to launch first phone, ‘OnePlus One,’ will run version of CyanogenMod

OnePlus

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.
