Just moments ago at approximately 3:44 PM Eastern US time, the CyanogenMod team achieved a rather significant milestone. CyanogenMod just clocked in at 10,000,000 unique installs, as registered by CMStats. In a little over four years, XDA Recognized Developer cyanogen‘s creation has gone from “optimizing the crap out of Android 1.5r2” on the HTC Dream: G1 to the widespread adoption it sees today.
Looking at the current tally, the numbers come in at just over 5 million official CM installs and just under 5 million unofficial installs. However, it is important to keep in mind that this only counts users who have left CMStats enabled and with devices that have checked-in in the last 90 days, something which isn’t always the case. So in actuality, the true number is significantly higher.
Also interesting to look at are the top devices, with the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, and Galaxy S III taking the first three spots. As reported at approximately 4 PM Eastern US Time:

Here’s to another 10 million, CyanogenMod. We wish you the best of luck, and thank you for helping promote the widespread adoption of high quality, source-built aftermarket ROMs. Head over to CMStats to see for yourself!
