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
While Cyanogen Inc's Cyanogen OS may have other plans, the non-corporate arm of the larger Cyanogen identity, CyanogenMod, has clarified today that the community version of the ROM will not ship with Cyanogen OS's "exclusive partner apps." That means that no, your next CM nightly build will not have any Microsoft junk on it - that privilege is reserved for the exclusive pleasure of OnePlus One and Yu Yureka owners. Read More
The second of the two currently-available CyanogenMod phones is receiving its 12S update today in a staged rollout. The Yu Yureka, a Micromax phone, comes just days after the OnePlus One also received Cyanogen's first release to be based on Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop platform.
If you have a Yureka but haven't been able to get the update over the air, a ZIP file with the firmware can be downloaded here (mirror), though it's quite large - nearly 650MB. Read More
We've heard Cyanogen Inc. CEO Kirt McMaster express his desire to break away from Google on more than one occasion, and it looks like Microsoft will be helping him do just that. Cyanogen OS will soon come bundled with a suite of Microsoft apps and services including Bing search, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Office.
Cyanogen announced today via Google+ that Cyanogen OS 12 (Lollipop) is finally available for OnePlus One users. If you want that Lollipop action right now, we've got the ZIP file. Cyanogen OS 12 features all the material design eye candy one would expect, as well as the more functional changes of Lollipop. In addition to the standard fare, there are a couple of features exclusive to Cyanogen.
After the rather public fallout between niche manufacturer OnePlus and its initial software supplier Cyanogen, the company promised to deliver an Android ROM developed on its own. Oxygen OS, the fruit of that particular labor, is now available to download in stable form for OnePlus One owners. OxygenOS is a customized ROM based on Android 5.0.2, built with at least some input from members of the Paranoid Android ROM team. Read More
Did those rumors of Microsoft investing in professional ROM developer Cyanogen spook you, Android purist? Then you might want to skip flashing today's nightly build for your Nexus 6. Starting late last night, CyanogenMod devotees who flashed the March 31st nightly builds to their phones and tablets were disheartened to see the following message as Android was upgrading:
That sound you heard was millions of CyanogenMod devotees who cried out in terror... Read More
Before we continue, let's get a couple of things straight: this is the DROID Turbo (model number XT1250), a souped-up version of the Moto X 2014 that's exclusive to Verizon in the United States. It's ostensibly a sequel to the DROID Maxx from 2013, and like almost all Verizon-branded devices, it has a locked bootloader. No custom ROMs for the poor DROID Turbo. And this is the Moto Maxx (model number XT1225), the exact same phone released without the Verizon branding or a locked bootloader, and currently sold only in Latin America. Read More
Cyanogen Inc. has come off as feisty ever since it was founded, but in the last few months CEO Kirt McMaster has gotten downright aggressive. We've known for a while the company wants to make Android more independent of Google, but McMaster told Forbes recently that Cyanogen Inc. "is putting a bullet through Google’s head." What's that all about? As a hint of its bullet/head strategy, McMaster announced that Cyanogen will partner with Blu to release a phone later this year without any Google services. Read More
At the beginning of this year, we heard news of Microsoft investing some of its millions into Cyanogen Inc., the commercial arm of CyanogenMod. Bloomberg later reported that the Redmond-based giant decided not to invest in the startup and was instead possibly considering another form of partnership. Now Cyanogen Inc. has announced the results of its latest round of funding, and Microsoft's name is nowhere to be found.
