CyanogenMod Compiler Now Builds CM with a GUI

XDA Recognized Developer lithid-cm has dropped a bombshell on CM users and kangers everywhere with the release of the newest CyanogenMod Compiler, or ‘CMC.’ Similar to what we wrote about a little over a year ago, this release helps users build CyanogenMod from source. However, the first-party CMC differs from other alternatives by offering a GUI for compiling customized CyanogenMod builds for any supported device.

This impressive piece of software runs on Ubuntu. The new GUI allows users to select a device, a branch to build, a theme to incorporate, languages, and a host of other settings. This makes it easy for anyone to build the latest CyanogenMod firmware from source, and that’s pretty awesome. The original command line version is still available, for users who prefer that method.

If you’d like to check it out and have a working Debian/Ubuntu installation, check out the release thread. The project is open source, and links to the code are provided in the original post. As always, it should be noted that flashing a ROM should only be attempted if you know what you are doing and have backed up your device. Don’t forget to thank lithid-cm for all the hard work it took to build these utilities, and most of all for sharing the source with the community!

Huawei: A Giant the Western World Should Look Out For

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
