POSTS TAGGED: CyanogenMod 11
Posted December 10, 2014 at 05:00 am by Will Verduzco
A little under two weeks ago, we first talked about an unfortunate situation whereby upcoming OnePlus One devices sold in India were rumored to ship without “Cyanogen OS” due to Cyanogen Inc. granting exclusive rights to their proprietary firmware in India to Micromax. Needless to say, this situation is less than ideal both for the Oppo offshoot as well as potential Indian buyers, as one of the main appeals of the OPO is undoubtedly its bloat-free CM11s install.
After the inevitable bad publicity, the Cyanogen Blog posted an official statement with the somewhat facetious title Cyanogen’s Commitment to our Users a little under a week ago stating, “OnePlus One will get OTA fi. . . READ ON »

If you’ve ever thought of flashing a custom ROM, CyanogenMod’s name more than likely rings a bell. This custom ROM project is one of the most popular on XDA. Its developers have created dozens of device trees and kernels used by many other developer teams. As such, CyanogenMod is often used by developers to create the first functional source built ROM for quite a few devices.
Most flagship devices already received quite functional CM nightlies some time ago. One device has had to wait a little bit was the Verizon LG G3. The Korean OEM decided to lock the bootloader for almost all variants of the LG G3, and the only variant with an unlocked bootloader was T-Mobile’s version. Thanks to XD. . . READ ON »

A short while ago, we talked about Android One getting root and custom recovery thanks to XDA Recognized Developer varun.chitre15. It was fairly easy to predict that the custom ROM madness would start afterwards—and surprise, surprise, we were all right. The first custom ROM for Android One has just been released, and once again varun.chitre15 is the developer who delivers goodness to the community.
CyanogenMod 11 is at an early stage of development. This doesn’t mean that the ROM itself is unstable. A great majority of functions work properly. Only dual SIM and Internet connectivity are on the to-do list. The ROM is universal, and as such it works on every Android One device released to dat. . . READ ON »

Summer vacation is over for most students out there, and it’s the time to get back to reality. Developers of popular ROMs have also came back to work, and as a result, we have a new monthly snapshot build of one of the most popular custom ROMs, CyanogenMod.
A few months ago, the CM team decided to switch to the monthly milestone release system rather than their previous release candidate and stable builds. ROMs that are described as M are considered more stable, and ready for use as your daily driver. Today’s build is the tenth such release.

In the last few days, we’ve talked about some fairly high end devices receiving official ports of popular ROMs or updates via OTA. Users of mid-range devices usually must be more patient when it comes to waiting for their devices getting developer support. Patience, however, is certainly a virtue.
The HTC Desire 816 was announced at MWC in Barcelona in February of this year and eventually released in April. This 5.5” phablet brought a number of high-end specs into mid-range world. Now, Desire 816 owners have a proper reason for celebration, as XDA Recognized Developer Grarak and XDA Senior Member v_superuser laid the cornerstone for the future development for this device by releasing . . .

Oppo’s spunky offspring company OnePlus announced their first smartphone, the One, to much fanfare. It ships with a special version of CyanogenMod installed. Many people love CyanogenMod and would love to get their hands on a phone with this version. However, getting your hands on a OnePlus One is not as easy as going down to the store and buying one. The supply is limited and there are many paths to getting the opportunity to buy one, and some paths are very sketchy.
In today’s video, XDA Developer TV newcomer droidmodd3rx, shows off XDA Senior Member zedomax‘s OnePlus One Conversion Kit. This kit allows you to install the special OnePlus One features like the OnePlusOne lock screen, cam. . . READ ON »

When the Moto G was initially released to the world in November of last year, very few actually believed that Motorola would be capable of producing a high quality smartphone with an unsubsidized price of under $200 US. In the nearly ten months since its original release, the G has more than proven that not only can a $200 smartphone be decent, but it could actually be quite desirable. Much of this comes down to its almost entirely vanilla flavor of Android, with only the most minimal OEM customizations. And building off of the success of the original, Motorola soon released a 4G variant of the device for not much more cost.
Despite the fantastic and untainted stock software, many still choose to r. . . READ ON »
