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.

Cyanogen-powered ZUK Z1 hints on a 4XXX mAh battery

The ZUK Z1 is a new entry to the mobile arena yet it’s highly anticipated because its manufacturer has been boasting about its large battery. We only had few details until this week when some details have been presented in a special event. As you all know by now, ZUK is a new phone brand backed by Lenovo. The company's first flagship smartphone will run CyanogenOS and its screen will feature a U-Touch fingerprint scanner-gesture control system that allows a new way to swipe and unlock the screen.

Cyanogen-running ZUK Z1 in the works, will probably rival OnePlus 2

Another player has entered the China-made smartphone industry. Meet ZUK, a new startup that is said to be backed by Lenovo and Chinese software company 360. The name Lenovo alone makes us think that this one has big potential but we have yet to see if its first entry is good enough to rival the numerous models in the market today.

Cyanogen brings its game on with Playphone partnership

Cyanogen, Inc. is expanding its anti-Google Android army, this time with a rather unexpected addition. Most of its previous deals have been to replace core functionality offered by Google's apps and services. This time, however, its partnership with Playphone provides a rather niche feature that isn't easily found in default Android: a social gaming experience. Now owners of the relatively few Cyanogen OS devices can experience a slightly different gaming setup, connecting with both friends and strangers to discover new games and maybe new friends as well.

That is the situation that some OnePlus One users are experiencing, as a fix to the device's touchscreen issues has been pulled out because it has been causing excessive battery drain once it has been installed. Cyanogen says they are already working on creating an actual solution that will not cause further damage.
