Cyanogen OS 12.1 rolls out for OnePlus One, on other devices soon

If you’re a OnePlus One user, then this could be something you’ve been waiting for a bit. The good news is Cyanogen OS 12.1 – the Android 5.1 update for Cyanogen OS – will be rolling out over the air (OTA) to OnePlus One devices starting today, and will do so for other Cyanogen OS devices in the next few days. The update looks promising, so let’s dig in.

OnePlus One can now receive Cyanogen OS 12.1 OTA update

After the Oxygen OS 2.0.1 update for OnePlus 2 was released, the OnePlue One is also getting an update to Cyanogen OS 12.1. This particular version already includes Android 5.1.1 Lollipop so OnePlus One owners no longer have to complain that their units are becoming outdated. We actually don't remember when was the last update for the first-gen OnePlus smartphone since the version was released (was there any?) but we're glad the Cyanogen OS 12.1 is here.

Wileyfox announces Cyanogen OS-running smartphones

Everyday, several new Android phones are being introduced. Most of them come from Android device manufacturers in South Korea, Japan, or China. This time, a new UK-based brand known as Wileyfox has just introduced a couple of new Android-powered smartphones. It's a bit of a surprise because it's from the United Kingdom but looks like our British friends want to compete within the Android game.

ZUK and Cyanogen make partnership official

Cyanogen recently claimed that it has more users than BlackBerry and Windows Mobile combined and with more than 50 million users now. We're a bit skeptical about this claim for many reasons but looks like the company is determined to make it really big in the tech industry. After officially partnering with Micromax in India and with Microsoft with a more solid “strategic partnership” for Android devices, we're learning that Cyanogen has also made its partnership with ZUK official.

New features coming to CyanogenMod, via Cyanogen Platform SDK

While newer and more flashy custom ROMs are coming out and hitting the big time, the big daddy of them all – the CyanogenMod ROM based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) – is chugging steadily along. The “preferred” custom ROM of people who want an experience closest to stock Android, the CyanogenMod team continues to add more power tweaks to the custom ROM that just confirms their massive advantage from the newer ROMs. Here are a few more new tweaks that will be coming to your CM builds shortly.

Cyanogen claims to have ‘more users than Windows Mobile and Blackberry combined’

If you ask anyone on the street about the top two mobile operating systems in the world, anybody who has an idea about smartphones will probably tell you correctly, Android and iOS. Ask them who’s on third spot, and the answer might not come as easy. Fact is, that spot is somehow one of the most coveted positions in the tech industry these days, and Cyanogen is claiming that they got it.

Cyanogenmod’s CM11 now ported for the Amazon Fire Phone

I’ve heard lots of people talk about the Amazon Fire Phone as a “pretty good phone if you consider the hardware”. And that it is – you can’t look at the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, HD display, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 (front and back) and say the hardware sucks – it most definitely does not. But everybody, and I mean everybody, will reach that point where Amazon’s proprietary Fire OS will trip them up. It’s simply that much far behind the stock Android experience that it renders itself pretty much as a bad experience. To counter that, the guys at XDA have ported CM11 for the Fire Phone.

CyanogenMod to release Gello, a Chromium-based browser

If there’s one thing you can be sure of, it’s that you will never run out of browser choices for Android – in the Google Play Store alone, you may possibly drown in all the choices you have for browser apps. Today we have an announcement that CyanogenMod – those guys behind your CM11 and CM12 custom ROMs – that they are working on “Gello”, a browser that is based on the open source Chromium code.
