Cyanogen is on a mission to free you from Google's evil clutches, apparently by delivering you into the clutches of other companies it gets along with better. Rather than integrating Google services with Android, Cyanogen has been investigating other partnerships, and the latest example is Truecaller. This is a caller ID service for Android, and it's going to be available in Cyanogen OS soon.
Here's a mildly interesting story discovered by one member of the CyanogenMod Reddit board. Apparently the state congress of Indiana uses a custom setup to allow its state senators and representatives to submit votes. Read More
Like it or not, CyanogenMod is one of the most popular and widely supported custom Android ROMs. With other projects you're lucky to see a handful of devices supported, but CM runs on dozens of phones and tablets. Users of those devices may soon have some new goodies to play with when the CM team releases the new Cyanogen Platform SDK, allowing app developers to integrate with various features in CyanogenMod.

You could say that using a custom ROM is akin to testing a beta product indefinitely, and in that case, using the beta version of CM Downloader previously available wasn't much of an issue. But for the more cautious ROMers among you, version 2.0 of CyanogenMod's automatic update-downloading and flashing app has gone stable.
This piece of software (formerly known as the CyanogenROM Downloader) saves CyanogenMod users, especially those who run on nightly builds, the effort of manually checking for and flashing the latest version. Read More
The Nexus Player is (so far) the only consumer device available that runs Android TV, which means a considerable portion of the people who own one are serious Android fans. It follows that they're prime candidates for ROM flashing (not to mention Android Police readership), so they'll be happy to know that they can now install CyanogenMod on their set-top box. CM 12.1 (based on Android 5.1) is now available in nightly form for the Nexus Player. Read More
Today marks OnePlus One's one year anniversary — so it's one plus years old now? — and the company is officially celebrating with a 50% reduction on select accessories and a new update for its users. Lollipop 5.0.2, which had started going out to devices on April 13th (as version YNG1TAS0YL) but was halted on April 20th supposedly due to a new "OK OnePlus" feature (Edit: but was most likely due to the wakelock bug), is now resuming its rollout under a newer build: YNG1TAS17L.

The CM team was originally shooting for last week to get the first CyanogenMod 12.1 nightlies out the door, but they're just rolling out now. This process will take a little time as the new version hits the myriad of devices supported by CM these days. When it does show up, just remember that we're talking about nightly builds, so don't expect a bug-free experience.
A number of users, like our own fearless leader Artem, have noticed battery life on the newly released Cyanogen OS 12 isn't as good as it ought to be. In some instances, the device never goes into deep sleep because of what appears to be a Google Play Services wakelock. It turns out this is caused by a quirk of the stock Android update service that wasn't accounted for in some Lollipop ROMs. Read More
