Micromax unveils YUreka Cyanogen smartphone for India

We mentioned yesterday that Micromax had taken Shenzhen OnePlus to court and won an injunction because Shenzhen was selling smartphones in India that ran Cyanogen. Micromax had set up a deal with the US developers of Cyanogen that allows it to sell smartphones with the OS exclusively. The resulting injunction forced Shenzhen to remove its devices from Indian stores.

Functional Android 5.0 build arrives for Samsung Galaxy S Plus

Is there any Android build out there that the venerable Samsung Galaxy S Plus can’t run? You’ll be hard pressed to find one that will not run in one form or another for one of Samsung’s first Galaxy smartphones launched in 2011 (that’s almost 3 years ago kids) and ended up officially only with Android 2.3 – this is because all of the aftermarket attention it got. Evidence of this came this week, with a highly functional build of Android 5.0 arriving for the Galaxy S Plus.

Install CyanogenMod apps even on non-CM ROMs

If you’ve used CM10 or CM11 before, there’s a big chance that you may have a soft spot for the apps that can only be found (and used) within the CyanogenMod environment. People who have gotten used to using these apps have no choice to download them individually and install them onto their devices – until now, of course. The CM App Installer brings all these apps under one downloader and allows you to get them, even for your non-CM operating system.

OnePlus starts working on new Android flavor for OnePlus One

So much to say about the OnePlus One. Time-limited pre-orders for the new smartphone have opened and production of the Bamboo StyleSwap Cover stopped. Pre-order was actually flooded so OnePlus decided to open another one mid-November. We knew the phone will be available in India and will be expanding to sub-continent and that phone will be available exclusively on Amazon.in this December 2. However, we also heard news that Cyanogen tied up a deal in India with Micromax, leaving OnePlus in the dark.

OmniROM looking to put out Android 5.0-friendly version soon

We’ve talked about OmniROM a number of times already here at Android Community. This was a project started a few years back in the wake of the CyanogenMod ROM project going commercial, and the response to the project has been very warm, with a number of famous developers getting on with the program. There were questions on how fast they were going to be able to put out a Lollipop-flavored ROM, and seeing as they were able to boot a device recently under Android 5.0, it shouldn’t take long.

CyanogenMod 11 M12 released, too early for Lollipop

In the midst of the flurry of Android 5.0 announcements, the developer team behind CyanogenMod has released its 12th "M" snapshot of version 11, which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat. While this release has more emphasis on fine tuning and polishing existing features, users are still recommended to upgrade as soon as possible as it patches up certain security holes that have recently been reported.
