The HTC One X+ is the last phone of an era. It was a simpler time, back when new devices got more letters and an extra helping of punctuation rather than a simpler title that makes them harder to Google. Those of you who have a One X+ now have an official CyanogenMod ROM build to call your own, at least if you're using the international version. The first nightly has been posted to Get.CM.

Our readers already know about CyanogenMod, as it's only the most popular Android ROM out there, so I won't waste time with an introduction. Many also already use CyanogenROM Downloader to get their hands on the latest versions, even though it's not an official updater. The app's already awesome, but its author sent out a tease a few days ago implying that it could be even better - that it could automatically update your ROM to the latest version overnight, do a backup beforehand, and install your preferred custom kernel without a single touch.

Last week we reported that the CyanogenMod team had added almost a dozen new phones and tablets to their list of officially-supported devices, including Barnes & Noble's increasingly affordable Nook HD and Nook HD+. At the time the B&N tablet builds weren't quite ready, but nightly ROM builds just showed up for both the 7-inch and 9-inch versions. Go forth, ROM addicts, and flash to your heart's content.

CyanogenMod still uses baffling codenames on the Get.CM download page, so if you're looking for the builds in the left-hand menu, search for "hummingbird" (Nook HD) and "ovation" (Nook HD+).

Ever since Jelly Bean, the reasons to switch to a custom ROM (as opposed to a stock, rooted build) have been slowly shrinking. But today ClockworkMod Recovery developer Koushik "Koush" Dutta gave us a reason to be incredibly excited for upcoming builds of CyanogenMod. With a little tweaking of the famous ROM family, he's managed to integrate Chromecast streaming across the system, making any video or audio app compatible.

Koush's demonstration video is convincing.

The folks on the CyanogenMod team are always adding new devices to their ever-increasing list, and over the last few days they've added no less than eleven more. According to a pair of Google+ posts, there are new officially-supported phones and tablets including two Barnes & Noble Nooks, a ton of Motorola devices, and a few Samsungs thrown in for good measure. Here's the full list:

*These builds may also work for the DROID RAZR MAXX HD.

According to a post by David van Tonder earlier this evening, CyanogenMod's 4.3-based 10.2 iteration will be able to boast a "Global Blacklist" among its features.

CyanogenMod is known for its subtle yet incredibly useful additions and tweaks to stock Android, and the new Blacklist will blend right in with a "holo compliant interface".

As the name implies, the blacklist will be truly global – it will support blocking of calls and messages, will be configurable through Settings, Phone, and Messaging, and available to third-party apps via a "new Content Provider API".

Over the weekend, CyanogenMod teased something called Nemesis, and we honestly had no clue what it was. Even now, after spending some time with CM team members who are working on the various parts of Nemesis, it still isn't entirely clear. What we do know, however, is how it will start, which may indicate what it could be.

Nemesis is going to be a multi-phase endeavor for CyanogenMod, where the team presumably tackles the features that have provided a less-than-stellar user experience in the past – the project's nemeses, if you will.

Longtime Google Voice users have had but one dream, total integration with the operating system. We've seen a few bits and pieces roll out from time to time, like support for automatic calling through your Google Voice number and having voicemail directly accessible in the stock dialer. But one feature continues to evade us: sending and receiving SMS messages through Voice with 3rd-party apps. CyanogenMod and Koushik Dutta (Koush) have officially broken that barrier with Voice Plus.

A strange new presence has made its way onto the Internet. It's a website, innocuous as it is mysterious, with a stylized version of a binary clock counting down: cyngn.com. Just in case you're a bit rusty on your CompSci, the numbers are counting down to August 19th of this year, as testified by the site's source code.

Here's the code in question:

var theFinalCountDown = new Countdown({ year : 2013, month : 8, day : 19, width : 800, height : 200, rangeHi : "month", style : "flip" });

Of course, any web sleuth worth his digital fedora knows what to do when presented with this sort of mystery: check the Whois file.

A mysterious video that starts with "Nothing can be perfect, things can be better" was just posted by the CyanogenMod team on YouTube. The 31-second animation teases... something.

What could it be? A CyanogenMod phone? Upcoming Android 4.3 support (I really doubt this is what the video is about)? Something else completely mind-blowing or ultimately disappointingly overhyped? One of the frames shows the word "FREE" on a lockscreen - that can't be a coincidence.
