Oppo N1 CyanogenMod 11 Nightlies Toting Android 4.4 Are Now Up For Download [Update: Find 5, Too]

Update: The Oppo N1 isn't alone. CyanogenMod 11 nightlies are available for the Find 5 as well.

You can get your hands on an Oppo N1 with CyanogenMod pre-installed. Really, it's the first phone to have this as an option, and there's a good chance that's the only reason you even know which phone I'm referring to. Yet as cool as that is, for Android tinkerers, there's just one problem  - it's too outdated. KitKat's been hitting devices for months now, but the phone came with Android 4.3, and the type of people likely to buy this handset aren't exactly the most patient bunch.

Android Open Kang Project Founder Roman Birg Joins Cyanogen Incorporated

The Android custom ROM community is a relatively small one, but it's about to be shaken up in a big way. Roman Birg, founder and leader of the Android Open Kang Project (better known as AOKP), has been hired by Cyanogen Inc., the company that's now formally developing and promoting the CyanogenMod ROM. The move has been confirmed on AOKP's homepage.

OnePlus Says The One Phone With CyanogenMod Will Be Released In Q2 2014

We're still a little woozy from the idea of Android ROM family CyanogenMod getting a legitimate hardware release from Oppo, but their second hardware partner appears to be on the fast track as well. According to the latest post from the Google+ account of startup manufacturer OnePlus, the One smartphone will be released internationally in the second quarter of this year. The OnePlus One (yes, really) would be the first phone designed from the ground up with CyanogenMod in mind.

To say that this roadmap is ambitious would be an understatement. OnePlus still hasn't revealed any concrete hardware details for the One - in fact, the announcement is in the form of a logo and text on a stucco background.

CyanogenMod 11 Nightlies Now Available For The Galaxy Note 3 On Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, And International LTE Models

If you're too impatient to wait for Samsung to get Android 4.4 to your carrier variant of the Galaxy Note 3 (or if you're just tired of TouchWiz), the indefatigable boys and girls of CyanogenMod are here to help. They've just released the first nightly builds of CM 11 (KitKat) for Samsung's plus-sized flagship, with support for the international LTE model (N9005), plus Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint versions.

As it happens, Samsung just started sending out the official 4.4 update for the N9005 earlier this week, so those of you who are on the unlocked version of the phone might want to go for the TouchWiz build of KitKat instead.

The CyanogenMod team is hard at work making the popular ROM more user-friendly and ready for the mainstream.

PSA: CyanogenMod Builds For AT&T, T-Mobile, And Unlocked HTC One Have Been Unified As 'm7'

Any HTC One owners who spend the day anxiously biting their nails in anticipation of the newest CyanogenMod nightly will be in for a surprise today. The popular ROM has unified several versions of the device under one heading. The AT&T, T-Mobile, and unlocked versions of the One are now on a single m7 ROM.

This change takes effect today with the newest CM 11 nightly, which is available for download. As monthly and release candidate builds are completed, they will be filed under m7 for these HTC One variant instead of the previous m7ul, m7att, and m7tmo names.

OnePlus Is Cyanogen Inc.'s New Official Hardware Partner, Will Announce Debut Phone Called The OnePlus One In First Half Of 2014

CyanogenMod's first officially supported handset, the Oppo N1, has just hit retail. However, the company has teased another partnership recently, but refused to confirm any of the speculation surrounding the fledgling smartphone startup OnePlus. Now the company has officially acknowledged that it will be working with Cyanogen Inc. on hardware. It even announced the name of its first device – the OnePlus One (or... the Two?).

Unlike the Oppo N1, this device will not simply be repurposed for use with CM. The CyanogenMod team will be working closely with OnePlus to design a custom hardware and software experience with special features and tweaks.

CyanogenMod 11 (KitKat) M2 Snapshot Builds Now Available For Dozens Of Devices

It's been almost exactly one month since the CyanogenMod team published its first build of Android 4.4 for Nexus devices, and now the second M or "snapshot" release is rolling out. This time CyanogenMod 11 is going out to a much wider subset of the officially-supported device list, with most of the big players in the Nexus, Galaxy S4, and HTC One lines getting M builds, among many others. You can check to see if your device has a CM11 M2 ROM available at the download page.

CyanogenMod M builds are better-tested and generally more stable than nightly builds (which are usually pretty good by the standards of custom ROMs anyway), but not as polished as release candidates or stable builds.

CyanogenMod Source Code For The Galaxy Note 3 Posted - Nightlies Coming Soon

All of the flagship Android devices from 2013 have been added to CyanogenMod in some form or another: the Galaxy S4, the HTC One, the LG G2, the Moto X, and of course, the Nexus 5. But there's one notable entry that has not graced the download page yet - Samsung's enormous and powerful Galaxy Note 3. According to an early-morning post from the custom ROM's official Google+ account, that's about to change.

The CM team has published its software source code for various models of the Note 3 to GitHub. The kernel and ROM code is up for the international model as well as the T-Mobile and Sprint variants, but the AT&T and Verizon versions are absent, almost certainly because of those carriers' insistence on locked bootloaders for all their phones.

Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition Now Available, Along With A Factory Image And Source Code

Yes, CyanogenMod fans, there is a Santa Claus. Cyanogen Inc. announced early on Christmas Eve morning that the long-awaited Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition is now available on Oppo's web store. It costs the same $599 as the standard N1, but comes pre-loaded with CyanogenMod 10.2 (Android 4.3). You'll also get spiffy custom packaging, a CyanogenMod phone case (plus a standard case), the O-click remote shutter, and a few stickers to show your devotion.
