It's amazing what a new look can do for a platform, isn't it? Back in January, we reported that CyanogenMod, the most popular third-party Android ROM, reached one million unique installs. Now, a little more than four months later, that number has doubled, according to CM's stat tracker. This is huge.

For those who are curious as to how the stat counter works, here's a more detailed explanation.

Last we heard, CyanogenMod 9's interaction with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 line was limited to the variants shackled either to T-Mobile or to WiFi. However, the CM team has been hard at work, and as of yesterday, the following three editions of the 10-inch tablet have been granted access to the CM nightly kingdom:

  • Verizon's Galaxy Tab 10.1 (SCH-I905) - Download: p4VZW
  • Unlocked WiFi + 3G Galaxy Tab 10.1 (GT-P7500) - Download: p4
  • Galaxy Tab 10.1v (GT-P7100) - Download: p3

Definition: A "nightly" is a cutting-edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

Update: Confirmed working on both Sensation and T-Mobile Sensation 4G.

Have an HTC Sensation or T-Mobile Sensation 4G?

If you're the owner of an unlocked Galaxy Note who's been wondering how to make Samsung's first phablet even better, you're in luck – just a few days after receiving an official update to Ice Cream Sandwich, the unlocked Galaxy Note has been treated to its first official CyanogenMod9 nightly build. The CyanogenMod team, staying true to form, released the nightly build just earlier today to the CyanogenMod download page.

Just a few days ago, the CyanogenMod team informed us that their new servers - capable of building CM9 in nine minutes (although the majority of devices are limited to CM7) and purchased through generous donations - were just about ready to start cranking out nightly builds for supported devices. According the CM download site, the first wave of these nightly builds seems to have hit.

You can always count on the Android ROM development community to extend a device's relevance in the tech world. Take the OG Galaxy Tab for example - this little guy was the first Android tablet to hit the scene (running a phone-specific version of the OS, no less). It has been around for about a year and a half now, and there's no hope that it will ever officially be updated to anything past Gingerbread.

If there's one thing Android lovers can unite around, it's that we have the best community around. When CyanogenMod put out the call back in February asking for donations to get some new servers, the community responded enthusiastically. Now, the most popular third-party ROM developer is announcing that the servers are online and capable of building CM9 in nine minutes. Whoa.

This is where the magic happens.

The team says there's still some work to be done before these babies are cranking, but once they've set up schedulers to automate the builds, the new servers will be able to put together bleeding edge ROMs for your device faster than you can say "Holy crap, that was really friggin' fast."

For those who are curious (and aren't we all?) those are three Dell R610s in the photo of the CM servers above.

Getting CyanogenMod builds onto an Android device has always been easy as pie, but who is going to say no to yet another, even simpler method? While redesigning the CyanogenMod Downloads page, the CM team recently added a really subtle ability to send downloads straight from the web right into ROM Manager - all with just one click, a-la Chrome to phone or Amazon's 1-click purchasing.

In fact, the change to the site was so subtle that it went unnoticed by us for a week until Koush posted this video to his YouTube account:

Brilliantly simple, isn't it?

CyanogenMod (CM) has long been the modding community's custom ROM of choice, and for good reason: it takes the goodness that is basic Android (AOSP) and adds a hearty dose of all-around improvement. The list of devices supported by CM is quite a long and impressive one (truth be told, they do a better job of supporting devices than the manufacturers do), and last night, cutting-edge nightly CM9 releases dropped for the Sony Xperia Arc (Anzu) and Xperia Neo (Hallon).
