Oppo N1 with CyanogenMod Review – XDA Developer TV

Oppo has made great strides in becoming a very developer friendly company, from attending XDA:DevCon to providing much needed kernel source code and developer information. Perhaps some of the most exciting news was that a version of the Oppo N1 became the first phone to officially come with CyanogenMod preinstalled from the factory. Recently, XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan reviewed the Oppo N1, but didn’t have a chance to get a copy of the official CyanogenMod to review. In the...

Official CyanogenMod Now Available for the Oppo N1 Standard Edition

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...

Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition, Factory Images, and Source Code Now Available

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...

Jcase Lets You Root Your Oppo N1 with Only an APK

Earlier today, we covered a relatively simple root method for the Oppo N1. Unfortunately, however, that root method wasn't exactly ideal, as it used the kingoroot root method to do the heavy lifting. And in addition to the potential hazards of that approach, it offered no real advantages over installing TWRP by Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy and then flashing Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire's SuperSU. Now, however, XDA Senior Recognized Developer jcase presents a simple exploit-based root method based on research conducted by Saurik and Giantpune. The tool lets you achieve...

TWRP Now Available for the Oppo N1

Earlier today, we gave the Oppo N1 a place in our forum. That's with good reason, as the company has continually demonstrated a rather healthy willingness to work with the aftermarket development community. This has lead to impressive early work by developers such as XDA Senior Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD. And now, another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place. Earlier today, XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy and Recognized Developer bigbiff released TWRP for the Oppo N1. The release for the N1 comes with all of the trademark,...

Forums Added for the Moto G and Oppo N1

We added a couple of new forums today for a pair of very intriguing devices. First up is the Moto G. This recently released device doesn't exactly have flagship aspirations. Its $179 off-contract asking price isn't really targeting the midrange either. Rather, this is meant to be a phone for the masses. But unlike most other devices in its price range, the Moto G actually packs some relatively healthy specs. The device features a 4.5-inch 720p LCD panel. Powering the screen,...
