Editorial: Android Custom ROM Developers, I Think We Need To Have A Talk

Dear Android Custom ROM developers: I love most of you. Really. You're part of what makes Android so awesome, because you're so enthusiastic about it, and about making it better. Because of you, we have awesome things like CyanogenMod.

I want to give you some numbers. Let's just look at some popular Android devices:

  • T-Mobile Galaxy S II: 9
  • AT&T Galaxy S II: 8
  • HTC ThunderBolt: 23
  • DROID BIONIC: 7
  • Epic 4G Touch: 10

What do these figures represent?

[Aww Yea] Cyanogen: ICS Coming Soon To The Galaxy Tab 10.1

While we've seen the newest iteration of Android show its stuff on the phone, we've yet to see what the experience will be like on a tablet. That's all about to change, though, because Cyanogen himself posted the following on his Google+:

ICS on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is pretty great. Coming soon to a CM mirror near you :)

I, for one, am giddy with excitement about this; I've been looking forward to ICS on my Tab 10.1 for a while now.

CyanogenMod 7 For HP TouchPad Updated To Alpha 2, Brings Various Bug Fixes And Improvements

Just six days after The CyanogenMod (CM) team released the first alpha build for the TouchPad, they're back with alpha 2. Despite being bumped up a version, it's still an alpha, meaning there are many things that can (and likely will) go wrong. Still, it looks like they've made quite a few improvements with the update:

Changelog:
(AKA things we hope we fixed)

* Plugging headphones in should now shut off speaker volume
* Battery drain issues have been (partially) addressed
* More apps now available in market (thanks to Flemmard)
* Temporarily removed suspect fsck_msdos to fix random folder deletion on media/sdcard.

CyanogenMod Team: There Will Be No Official SDK Port Of Ice Cream Sandwich By The CM Team - CM9 Will Arrive When The ICS Source Does

At the end of today's Ice Cream Sandwich unveiling, we found out that the ICS SDK (API 14) was available immediately, but a much more important bit - the source code - was not mentioned at all. It didn't really come as a surprise - historically the source was released about a month after the SDK (with the exception of Honeycomb), but I'd like to clarify something right away for those confused between the SDK and the source code.

Stable Release Of CyanogenMod 7.1 With Support For Android 2.3.7 On 68 Devices Is Finally Out; CyanogenMod 9 Is Up Next

The road to CyanogenMod 7.1, undoubtedly the largest Android custom ROM, now covering a mind-boggling number of devices (68), has been long and rough. We've been hearing rumblings that the final release was almost here for a number of days (just watch the video of the CM sessions from the Big Android BBQ below), but a couple of hours ago it really did seep through and end up at CM download mirrors across the web.

PSA: Cyanogen Nightlies Are Finally Back After Weeks Of Downtime

If you're used to downloading and installing nightly builds of CyanogenMod, Android's most popular custom ROM, you may have noticed that since the beginning of this month, the nightlies haven't really been... well, nightly.

A major hack of kernel.org, the home of the Android source code which is still down to this day, has derailed the process of building nightlies. Now that the Android source has moved to github.com/android and Chris Soyars has made the necessary changes to fix the build bot, the nightly builds are finally back.

Team Touchdroid Disbands Amid Rumors Of Theft/Plagiarism, Open Sources Their Code

Since HP made its decision to -ahem- streamline their inventory of Touchpads via fire sale, Android users have been clamoring for the ability to run Google's mobile OS on the inexpensive (yet powerful) tablet.

This, of course, led to fierce competition between developers to be the first to get Android running on the Touchpad. The competition really heated up after Hack N Mod offered a bounty to the first developers able to get Android working on HP's previously doomed device.

CyanogenMod 7 Makes Its Way To The HP TouchPad

Just last week we reported that a HP TouchPad running Android 2.2 was being sold on eBay for $700. The claim seemed a little dubious, especially considering the inflated price tag, but today news just broke that CM7 has finally made its way onto the HP TouchPad. The news comes from Rootzwiki, who included a video and a letter from the CM Team related to the project and its recent progress.

Steve Kondik, Aka Cyanogen, Joins Samsung Mobile (And Their Babies Will Be Picture Perfect)

Steve Kondik, better known as Cyanogen, the father of CyanogenMod, has posted an interesting update to his professional life on his Facebook page. Steve, who has founded the largest family of custom Android ROMs on the planet, has just joined Samsung Mobile to presumably work on Android-related goodies for one of world's largest electronics manufacturers.

It's only fitting to see the two masters of their own domains join forces, so here's to hoping the fruits of their labor are going to be beautiful and exciting for us, Android users.

BootManager Allows You To Install Up To 5 ROMs On One Device, Flashaholics Rejoice

Not content to wait for manufacturers to get in to shape and update our phones to the latest and greatest versions of Android, most of us here at Android Police have had a brush with a number of custom ROMs in the past.

Whether it's the latest version of Cyanogen or a more obscure mod, there is always a ROM floating around on my phone, and until now I've always had to uninstall one before installing the other.
