It's been almost exactly one month since the CyanogenMod team published its first build of Android 4.4 for Nexus devices, and now the second M or "snapshot" release is rolling out. This time CyanogenMod 11 is going out to a much wider subset of the officially-supported device list, with most of the big players in the Nexus, Galaxy S4, and HTC One lines getting M builds, among many others. You can check to see if your device has a CM11 M2 ROM available at the download page. Read More
The Oppo N1 isn't a phone you'd expect to see sold in markets like the United States. It's eccentric and, frankly, kind of weird. A rear touchpad panel? A swiveling camera? A 5.9" display? Official CyanogenMod support from the factory? It has "niche" written all over it (not literally, but that would be kind of funny, I suppose). As such, the N1's appeal in western markets is likely to be limited to the enthusiast audience, an audience Android Police has long entertained. Read More
All of the flagship Android devices from 2013 have been added to CyanogenMod in some form or another: the Galaxy S4, the HTC One, the LG G2, the Moto X, and of course, the Nexus 5. But there's one notable entry that has not graced the download page yet - Samsung's enormous and powerful Galaxy Note 3. According to an early-morning post from the custom ROM's official Google+ account, that's about to change. Read More
Yes, CyanogenMod fans, there is a Santa Claus. Cyanogen Inc. announced early on Christmas Eve morning that the long-awaited Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition is now available on Oppo's web store. It costs the same $599 as the standard N1, but comes pre-loaded with CyanogenMod 10.2 (Android 4.3). You'll also get spiffy custom packaging, a CyanogenMod phone case (plus a standard case), the O-click remote shutter, and a few stickers to show your devotion. Read More
If you're a fan of the CyanogenMod family of custom Android ROMs, then you're in extremely good company. According to CyanogenMod's official statistics page, the ROM and its derivatives are now running on just over 10 million Android phones and tablets. Those statistics come from CyanogenMod users who voluntarily report activity via the built-in CMStats function, so the actual number of devices could be higher. CyanogenMod's head honcho and Cyanogen Inc. Read More
It's been a crazy few months for the team at Cyanogen Inc.. After announcing the partnership with Oppo, the new company cofounded by Steve Kondik and Koushik Dutta has released a CyanogenMod installer app, built a Google-approved ROM for the N1, and secured a mess of funding. Now there's a YouTube channel where you can follow the exploits of the CM crew, and it all starts with a demo of the Oppo N1 running the official CyanogenMod ROM. Read More
It's officially official: the Oppo N1 is the first Google-approved CyanogenMod phone. After passing through Google's CTS (compatibility test suite), CDD (compatibility definition document), and CTS Verifier, the phone can legitimately run Google's suite of apps and have access to the Google Play Store. It is an undeniably big milestone for Cyanogen Inc., who hope to release a true "CyanogenMod" phone at some point, with the "highest quality hardware available" through a partnership with an as-yet unannounced firm.

When the CyanogenMod folks announced the formation of Cyanogen Inc. back in September, the young company had secured $7 million in funding to help it get off the ground. Now, with a few months of momentum behind it, the company has secured an additional $22 million. This money comes from the California-based venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz along with pre-established partners Benchmark and Redpoint.
These new funds will help Cyanogen Inc. Read More
Would you look at that. Just one day after the Google Play Edition of LG's G Pad 8.3 went on sale, the CyanogenMod team gets an Android 4.4 build out for the standard retail version. A new CyanogenMod 11 nightly is available for the "LG V500."
But if you're planning on flashing this to your shiny new Google Play Edition tablet, you should hold off. CyanogenMod team member Ricardo Cerqueira says that the retail V500 build won't work on the G Pad 8.3 GPE, model number V510. Read More
Wild CyanogenMod 11 nightlies first appeared on Nexus devices just under a week ago, and they were followed up only a day later by builds for a slew of other devices. Still, many devices are still waiting for their share of KitKat. Today we can strike two more off that list - Sprint's LG G2 (ls980) and the Samsung Galaxy Express (expressatt).
CyanogenMod 11 may have been around for nearly a week now, but don't let that give you a false sense of confidence. Read More
