POSTS TAGGED: CyanogenMod 10.2
Posted March 11, 2014 at 02:00 am by Tomek Kondrat
Sony released quite a few of interesting devices in 2013. One of the most successful was the Xperia SP, a device that easily can compete with Nexus 4 and other relatively powerful smartphones. Not too long ago, the Xperia SP was updated to Android 4.3. This gave developers an opportunity to cross more boundaries and limitations.
Xperia devices, although capable of being unlocked, are often locked by carriers. That makes developing for those devices harder, as custom kernels can’t be flashed. All Xperia SP owners with locked bootloaders now have a reason to smile.

If you rewind back to a couple of months ago, you may remember that dual boot was achieved on the Samsung Galaxy S Plus. Well, there’s been more happening with this device, the refresh of the perhaps more popular Samsung Galaxy S. Shipped all the way back in 2011 with Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread, it only received an incremental, official update to Android 2.3.6 before being discontinued by Samsung.
Fortunately however, Galaxy S Plus owners will see the abandoned device get back on its feet and march on, as XDA Recognized Developers CastagnaIT, Christopher83, educk and ivendor, and Recognized Contributor krislibaeer have teamed up as DevConnection_Team and delivered the latest iteration of Android. . .

Just two days ago, we talked about the release of the Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition, as well as its factory images and source code. While the device’s large dimensions make it somewhat of a niche device, the N1 is a device aimed to please those looking for a very large phone. The N1 is also great for those who value support from an OEM that actively caters to the development and enthusiast communities.
Alongside the release of the N1 CM Edition, Oppo stated that an official CM build for the standard edition device would be released shortly. Now two days later, they have made good on their promise, thanks to a complete update that removes the default ColorOS in favor of the AOSP-derived CyanogenMod 10.2.

The almost ludicriously sized Oppo N1 isn’t exactly a device aimed at everyone. No, its gargantuan dimensions simply preclude it from much mass market appeal. But for those of you who can handle the device’s macroscopic proportions, Christmas has come a little early—one day early, to be exact.
Earlier today, the CyanogenMod team announced that a version of the N1 with CyanogenMod 10.2 preinstalled has just gone on sale. The device is available directly on the Oppo Style website for $600 US. But for that price, and at with such large dimensions, it’s difficult to imagine the N1 CM Edition displacing the crowd favorite Nexus 5 any time soon. In any case, this is still a momentous occa. . . READ ON »

While secure text messaging systems have been available on Android for quite some time, many users (even power users) have failed to set them up on their devices. This isn’t because privacy isn’t important, but it’s often one of those things you don’t think of until it’s too late.
Now, CyanogenMod is taking a great first step by incorporating an existing and open source secure text messaging platform into CyanogenMod. The integration comes in the form of TextSecure, which is maintained by Open WhisperSystems and lead engineer Moxie Marlinspike. Moxie is also in charge of the CM integration of the app, ensuring functionality and a degree of security. New to the CM impl. . . READ ON »

If you’re a former CyanogenMod user whose ORD has resulted in a move to another ROM or if you’ve simply changed devices to one without officially supported CM builds, you’re in for a treat.
Undoubtedly, one of the most visually striking parts of CyangoenMod as of late is its cLock home and lock screen widget. For those with an eye for the visually pleasing, cLock offers a clean and information-rich interface. And for those who like to stand out, it’s quite customizable in both color and content. Sadly though, changing ROMs generally means doing away with ROM-specific perks.
Thankfully, this is no longer a problem, as XDA Recognized Developer (and CyanogenMod UI and Experience Tea. . . READ ON »

Ever since the release of Android 4.3 a few weeks ago, most device owners have been impatiently waiting for their slice of the pie. No, not key lime pie; but sweet 4.3 goodness, nonetheless. Of course, with dedicated teams of aftermarket firmware developers such as CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, and AOKP, we all knew that it was only a matter of time.
Well, that day is now here, as Android 4.3 has made it to various handsets by way of CyanogenMod 10.2 nightlies for various devices. So what devices are supported? Quite a few, actually. A full build roster is not yet available, but according to the CyanogenMod Google+:
