Creating custom ROMs is no easy task, especially when you’ve become so famous that people expect your ROM to work on the majority of devices in the wild. And yet the people over at CyanogenMod seem to be able to work miracles as they just added 11 devices to its list of officially supported devices over the weekend.
CyanogenMod is one of the most popular custom ROM makers in the Android world. It has been untiring in its goal of giving the best and almost pure Android experience, without the modifications and addons that burden phones coming from manufacturers and carriers. In a lot of cases, CyanogenMod has become the only upgrade path for devices that have been abandoned by their manufacturers, providing updated software to old but still capable devices.
In a pair of Google+ postings, CyanogenMod has listed 11 devices that have joined its roster of supported devices. Included in this new list are a couple of Motorola smartphones like the Droid Razr and the Atrix and two Barnes and Noble Nook tablets. Also making it to the list is the Samsung Galaxy S4, which was just released a few months ago.
These devices will be able to run the latest CyanogenMod 10.1 release, which is based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Aside from the Galaxy S4, all devices are also being prepared for testing the next release, CyanogenMod 10.2, which will be the first release based on recently announced Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
