Sources: Cyanogen Inc. is undergoing major layoffs, may "pivot" to apps

We're hearing from multiple sources that Cyanogen Inc. is in the midst of laying off a significant portion of its workforce around the world today. The layoffs most heavily impact the open source arm of the Android ROM-gone-startup, which may be eliminated entirely (not CyanogenMod itself, just the people at Cyanogen Inc. who work on the open source side).

Accounts indicate that employees were called into meetings, sometimes in groups, and told they were being let go.

Cyanogen releases its 'C-Apps' flashable package for CyanogenMod 13 builds

Last year Cyanogen (the company) announced plans to release flashable bundles of its internally-developed, proprietary Android apps for CyanogenMod (the original community ROMs). It's taken a while, but now those apps are available for CyanogenMod 13 (that's the version based on Android 6.0). Users can download the package at cyngn.com/c-apps, and for the moment they include the custom theme chooser and theme store, Cyanogen's Truecaller-equipped dialer, the new Gallery app, the Cyanogen Account manager, and the AudioFX equalizer.

CyanogenMod 13 nightlies land for Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Tab S2 9.7

The march of CyanogenMod continues as nightlies hit two Samsung devices. The Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and the Galaxy Note 8 are receiving CM13 nightlies, with both the WiFi and the LTE variants of the Tab S2 9.7 included.

The Galaxy Note 8 was released in April 2013 with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, while the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 hit the market less than a year ago, in September 2015, running Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Galaxy Note 8 is only upgradeable officially to 4.4 KitKat, so getting 6.0 Marshmallow support, albeit through CyanogenMod, will be a big boon to owners of that device.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Available For The OnePlus 2, Moto X Pure, Yu Yureka, Oppo R5 And R5s, And The Xperia Tablet Z

Fans of the community-created CyanogenMod ROM, your cup runneth over with new gadgets to try out on CM 13 (based on Android 6.0 code). Five new phones and a tablet have been given the nightly treatment in the last week or so, to wit: the OnePlus 2, the Moto X Pure (the US multi-carrier variant of the Moto X Style), Yu's low-priced Yureka, the Oppo R5 and R5s, and the original version of Sony's Xperia Tablet Z. They're all available at their respective download locations under CM's somewhat nebulous device codenames.

The Yureka deserves some special attention here.

CyanogenMod 13 Comes To The Sprint, US Cellular, And Vodafone Galaxy S5 — Plus The AT&T LG G3 And Xperia SP

Waiting on a carrier is not the only way to get the most recent version of Android onto your device. There's the option to flash a custom ROM instead.

You can't go that route unless your device is supported, so technically, you may still find yourself waiting. Fortunately CyanogenMod 13 nightlies with Android 6.0 have now arrived for the Galaxy S5 on Sprint, US Cellular, and Vodafone.

Gello, CyanogenMod's Custom Chromium-Based Browser, Is Rolling Out To Some CM Builds Now

Remember Gello, that neat Android browser based on Chromium code that was teased by the CyanogenMod developer team a little less than a year ago? It looks like the app is finally finished, or at least ready to make a version 1.0 debut. Joey Rizzoli, the CM developer who teased Gello last July, says that it's ready to go and that managers can begin to incorporate Gello into nightly builds. The browser will be added by the individuals or teams of developers responsible for upkeep on each CyanogenMod device build, so Gello may or may not be immediately on your device's nightly release.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Come To Verizon's Galaxy Note 10.1 And The GSM-LTE, Sprint, and Verizon Galaxy Note II

The Galaxy Note II and its tablet big brother the Galaxy Note 10.1 were both released in 2012. That being the case, the odds of them getting an Android 6.0 update are about as good as the Chicago Cubs winning the Super Bowl. Of course, a lack of updates (even for hardware that might not meet the minimum requirements) is a big part of what makes custom ROMs so popular. So it is that the CyanogenMod ROM's version 13, based on AOSP code for Marshmallow, has come to a handful of older Samsung devices.

Nextbit Robin, HTC Desire 816, And YU Yuphoria Receive CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies

As one of the top custom ROMs, CyanogenMod is constantly adding new devices to its stable. Now it's time for these three devices to have their turn in the spotlight. For the Robin and the dual-SIM Desire 816, this is the first appearance they've made on official CyanogenMod pages. The YU Yuphoria has had CM12.1, based on Lollipop 5.1, for a while, but has now made the leap to CM13 and Marshmallow. Without further ado, here are the three new additions to the CM 13 nightlies:

  • Nextbit Robin (ether)
  • HTC Desire 816 (a5dwg)
  • YU Yuphoria (lettuce)

These are nightlies, so bear in mind that the ROMs will likely be unstable and likely to crash, reboot, fry your phone, eat your dog, etc etc.

CyanogenMod Releases Weather Underground Weather Provider Plugin

A couple of weeks ago, CyanogenMod nightlies added a new Weather settings panel that left some of its users confused. The panel had no options and all you could see was that there were "No weather provider services installed." It looked like CyanogenMod was ready to start allowing different third-party weather providers into its homescreen and lockscreen widgets, instead of forcing users to go with whichever default service was being used, but that the option was still being tested.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightly Builds Now Available For The OnePlus X

Relatively low prices and a wide-open attitude towards user customization make OnePlus phones popular with the ROM crowd. They're getting a big boon today, as official CyanogenMod support comes to the smaller, cheaper OnePlus X. The X is equipped with the custom Oxygen OS, but for those who prefer the community-built ROM, CM13 is now available in nightly build flavor. The first release is up on CyanogenMod's download page right now.
