CyanogenMod 12.1 With Android 5.1.1 Goes Stable Alongside CM 11.0 And 12.0 Security Releases

CyanogenMod has changed a lot over the years, but we're still seeing custom ROMs pumped out. The 12.1 release is the latest one to go stable. It offers users the ability to run Android 5.1.1, IMAP idle support, and SDK v1.

CyanogenMod has also pushed out new stable builds for versions 11.0 and 12.0. These are security releases that address a number of security issues, including Stagefright. Get the update not for new features but to make sure that your phone or tablet is safe.

Builds are only available for devices where maintainers have marked builds as 'Good to go.' So if the gadget you're holding isn't yet on the list, you will have to be patient or opt to install one of the pre-release builds instead.

You've probably never heard of a smartphone maker from the UK called WileyFox, and with good reason. The company didn't exist until just recently.

CyanogenMod Download Site Revamped With Proper Device Names And Recovery Downloads

Like it or not, CyanogenMod is still one of the most popular, well-supported custom ROMs out there. However, downloading the necessary files to flash it could be an exercise in frustration. See, the CM download page only listed device code names, but now it uses the device names you actually know.

Yu Yureka Plus To Launch In India July 24th For 9,999 INR With A 1080p Display, New Camera, And Cyanogen OS 12

After launching its first phone in India at the end of last year, Micromax subsidiary Yu is now ready to follow up with the ever-so-slightly upgraded and pricier Yu Yureka Plus. Like last time, this handset ships running the latest version of Cyanogen OS.

What's new? Not much. The phone still comes with a Snapgragon 615 processor and 2GB of RAM. The excitement comes from the higher-resolution 1080p display, up from the previous model's 720p. With the screen still 5.5 inches in size, it amounts to a noticeably high pixel density. Though that may be less of a thrill when you consider that the battery capacity remains the same at 2500mAh.

International Galaxy S2 Says Goodbye To CyanogenMod 11, Skips 12.0 Entirely For Fresh Nightly Build Of 12.1 Instead

At this point, custom ROMs are the only things keeping old Galaxy S2s feeling fresh and vaguely modern. If you turned to CyanogenMod as your experience of choice, you've been left stranded on version 11 running Android KitKat. Now you're in for a treat. Fresh builds of CyanogenMod 12.1 are ready for download.

These nightly builds bring Android 5.1 to the four-year-old device. That's nothing to take lightly. These nightlies may not provide the most stable experience, but at this point, that old version of TouchWiz probably isn't either.

The downloads come in at around 230MB and are meant for the international model (i9100).

[Another One Bites The Dust] Cyanogen's Next Would-Be Phone, The Alcatel Hero 2+, Has Been Canceled - But Why?

Announced back in March at Mobile World Congress, the Alcatel Hero 2+ was to be the next powerful Cyanogen OS phone, following up on the OnePlus One after that partnership basically died. While Cyanogen OS has been announced for some budget phones, the Google-killers had yet to show off new mid-range or high-end hardware powered by their mostly-Google-anyway software at the time, and the Hero 2+ looked like it might add some legitimacy to the Cyanogen Inc.

There is no shortage of third-party browsers available on Android. While most of us use Chrome, there are plenty of worthy alternatives and valid reasons to choose them. The CyanogenMod team (notably distinct from, but connected to, the Cyanogen Inc. company) is throwing its hat into this crowded ring. The new project is called Gello, it's based on Chromium's open-source code... and that's about all we know for sure at this point.
