CyanogenMod Team Fixes "Black Screen" Bug Which Broke Chromecast Casting

There's some great news for anyone using CyanogenMod. A long-existing bug that prevented users of the hugely popular ROM from displaying their screen on the Google Chromecast has finally been squashed. The problem is present in applications that use the Chromecast Remote Display API. On devices running CyanogenMod, instead of the intended content, users would see a solidly black screen. This issue is limited to CyanogenMod and its derivatives.

In addition to a handful of stock Google applications, like Google Photos, many third-party apps have been bitten by this bug. One of these is Cast-A-Draw, which is a Chromecast-oriented word guessing-game.

CyanogenMod Pushes Out The First Official 13.0 Snapshot Builds With Android Marshmallow

Custom ROMs used to be associated with speedy updates. That's not necessarily the case anymore. Technically, yes, someone somewhere will probably release an unofficial build with the latest update that you might feel comfortable using if you're very trusting and have nothing to lose if your phone malfunctions. But for those well-tested versions, you generally have to wait a bit longer.

CyanogenMod 13 (Android 6.0) Nightlies Come To The Zenfone 2, SHIELD Portable, And AT&T, T-Mobile, And Sprint Versions Of The Galaxy S III

The Galaxy S III, first released back in 2012, only has official software support up to Android 4.3. No matter: the folks at the CyanogenMod development team are keeping the device alive long after Samsung threw in the towel. Today the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint variants of the GSIII all get their very first nightly ROM builds for CyanogenMod 13, which is based on Android 6.0. You can find them at the d2att, d2tmo, and d2spr listings on the CM download page, respectively.

In contrast, Asus has already promised a Marshmallow build for the Zenfone 2, which is less than a year old at this point.

Cyanogen Launches A New MOD Platform For Deeper Integration Of Apps In Android — Not To Be Confused With The CyanogenMod Custom ROM

Part of me can't help but wonder whether Cyanogen Inc. still lives under the shadow of its forefather, CyanogenMod, especially when announcements like these are made and the company introduces an eerily named "Cyanogen MOD" platform that has nothing to do with the custom ROM every enterprising Android user has known for years.

Instead, MOD is the incarnation of what we've been hearing from Cyanogen for a while now: a platform that opens up Cyanogen OS' Android framework further than any other, allowing deeper integration of apps and services into areas of the software that have otherwise been off-bounds for a long time.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Come To T-Mobile LG G4 While LG V10 Gets Its First 12.1 Nightly

We've recently covered some odd releases for CyanogenMod on Android, where the custom ROM was resurrecting some forgotten devices from the dead with updates that their original manufacturers wouldn't dare release for them. This isn't the case with these additions / upgrades to the CM lineup.

First, the T-Mobile LG G4 (h811) started getting its first CM13 nightlies a couple of days ago. Given that Marshmallow is just now heading to the Tmo G4 officially, Cyanogen is keeping up with LG on this one — albeit with a probably less stable release.

Second, the T-Mobile LG V10 (h901) got its first nightly yesterday, but this time it's for CyanogenMod 12.1 which is based on Android 5.1.

[He's Not Dead, Jim] Samsung Galaxy S II Gets Marshmallow Through CyanogenMod 13 Nightly

The Galaxy S II is an iconic device in Samsung's line-up. It had a big role in changing the public's perception of Samsung's brand and establishing it as a major smartphone player. But in our day and age, at a time when the S7 is about to be announced, the S II is getting long, really looooooooong in the tooth. It's a 5-year old device by now and its specs (dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 4.3" 480x800 display) can hardly be found in the lowest of the low-end Android phones. It does have 1GB of RAM and 16/32GB of storage though, which make it a potential candidate ripe for more modern Android ROMs.

Transformer Pad TF701T Leaps From Android 4.4 To 5.1 Via CyanogenMod 12.1 Nightly Builds, Xperia M Gets Marshmallow

The Asus Transformer line used to be a stalwart of Android tablets, and 2013's Transformer Pad TF701T was no slouch. The device had a beautiful 2560×1600 display that still holds up today, and like all previous Transformer devices, it had a detachable keyboard. It was intended as a productivity machine, but like all Android devices, the manufacturer only provided a couple years' worth of updates. The tablet went from Jelly Bean to KitKat, and there it stayed.

Fortunately custom ROMs have a way of breathing new life into old devices.
