Indian Android fans had something to look forward to when it was announced last week that the OnePlus One would be sold on Amazon in India. However, OnePlus is dashing everyone's hopes with an update on its Cyanogen partnership. It seems Cyanogen Inc. has granted exclusive rights to use CM in the Indian market to Micromax, which means the OnePlus One won't be supported with future CyanogenMod updates.

The CyanogenMod team rolled out a new Snapshot build of the custom ROM the other day, but it's still based on KitKat. What gives? Lollipop has been available for like a week now. C'mon! Relax, it's being worked on, and nightlies could arrive sooner than you might expect.

Like it or not, CyanogenMod is a crazy-popular ROM, and it continues to be one of the most widely supported. The latest CyanogenMod snapshot build started rolling out late last night, and should be ready for most devices now. Grab the update from your update menu or from the CM download site.

Using multiple devices is still very clunky, even with synchronization features like those offered by Google. A startup called Nextbit is looking to change that with a product called Baton. The goal is to make switching from one device to another completely seamless, and it's coming to CyanogenMod soon as a private beta.

Cyanogen-Thumb

Android has come a long way over the years, and there's less incentive to install a custom ROM than there used to be. Nevertheless, the desire is still there. CyanogenMod remains the most established and well-known option around, so it's no small thing when a new device gets supported. Two devices that have recently made the list include the Verizon Galaxy S5 (kltevzw) and the GSM version of the HTC One Mini 2 (memul).

For all the grief we give Samsung tablets about fake leather and physical home buttons, the higher tiers of hardware have some great specs. Speed demons and resolution fanatics might be particularly enthralled with the Tab Pro series, all of which feature 2560x1600 screens. If you appreciate the hardware but could do without Samsung's Android skin, the developers at CyanogenMod now support the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1.

Samsung releases so many phones in so many variants that even professional gadget bloggers get turned around on occasion. But the folks on the CyanogenMod team are doing their best, bless 'em, and today's fruit of their labor is ROM support for an extra variant of the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4. The most pertinent one for American readers is probably the G900-T, the Galaxy S5 model sold by T-Mobile as their branded version.

The Galaxy S4 Active is pretty solid as both a high-end phone and a "ruggedized" handset, but as with a lot of Samsung devices, TouchWiz keeps some power users away from a purchase. Now the indefatigable CyanogenMod team is giving you some AOSP-style options: they just released their first nightly build for the S4 Active. You can pick it up for your phone at the usual spot and install it via the custom recovery of your choice.

It's that time of the month again, CyanogenMod ROM fans. In fact it's a bit past that time of the month, reportedly thanks to a heavy workload and the Labor Day weekend, but now that the CM11 monthly update is up to the M10 release, we won't hold it against the CyanogenMod Team. The biggest change to the M build is a brand new bug tracker app, which makes it easy for users to submit anonymized bug reports to CM along with a stacktrace whenever a system app crashes.
