Cyanogen pulls out OnePlus touchscreen fix due to battery drain

They created a fix to an annoying problem, only to have that fix create another possibly more annoying problem. 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.

OnePlus ends legal battles in India, Cyanogen to continue support

If you remember last year, China-based smartphone manufacturer OnePlus got itself into a sticky situation with primary software partner Cyanogen over business actions in the sub-continent of India. As you may know, India is one of the fastest growing smartphone markets in the world, and everybody wants a piece of the pie – even Cyanogen and OnePlus. The year of 2014 ended with OnePlus and Cyanogen, plus Cyanogen’s India-based partner Micromaxx, in a legal scuffle. OnePlus just released what seems like good news today that their legal troubles in India are over.

TrueCaller now built-in in Cyanogen OS devices

Having the ability to identify who is calling you and deciding whether or not to take that call is a basic "power" that every mobile user should have. And yet, most of our smartphones don't have a built-in capability like that. Well, at least, we're very thankful that there are apps and developers out there whom we can count on to bring this feature. One of these apps, TrueCaller is now built-in to the to the Cyanogen OS Dialer, ready to start screening your calls for you.

CyanogeMod isn’t getting into bed with Microsoft, CM12.1 nears

Android news might still be ringing abut Cyanogen, Inc.'s partnership with Microsoft to preload the latter's apps into Cyanogen OS. While this is no different from Samsung's similar deal, the fact that it is Cyanogen making it has caused a stir among the Android community, particularly those in the ROM community. The ramifications of this business move is a topic fit for another day, on a post of its own. In the meantime, however, CyanogenMod, not Cyanogen, is assuring its users that it isn't taking a similar path.

Microsoft, Cyanogen solidify “strategic partnership” for Android devices

It looks like Cyanogen is really hitting Google where it hurts most (well, as much as you can hurt this tech giant) as they announced a "strategic partnership" with Microsoft. This is also part of Microsoft's strategy to go beyond their own platform and expand their reach to other rivals, something they wouldn't have done years ago. But they have had to adjust to an environment they used to dominate, and partnerships like this one with Cyanogen is solidifying their strategy.

Cyanogen OS 12 gets a taste of the sweet Android lollipop

Finally, the OnePlus One is getting a taste of the sweet Android Lollipop. This one is more special as it integrates the new Cyanogen OS 12. All OnePlus One units should be receiving the update notification any day of the week or beyond. Rollout only started yesterday but if you don't have it yet, don't worry, this particular software update is coming your way very soon. With the new Android Lollipop for Cyanogen OS 12, you'll notice some sweet enhancements also brought about by the new Material Design language.

Breathe in, OxygenOS is finally here

It has finally launched – China-based device makers OnePlus has finally released the first build of their in-house version of Android called OxygenOS. You will remember that the manufacturer’s outstanding first flagship device – the OnePlus One smartphone – came out with Cyanogen’s version of Android. The falling out between the two parties forced OnePlus to consider making their own software, and here we are – OxygenOS is finally upon us.

Cyanogen raises $80M for anti-Google warchest

It’s been a while since someone had the guts and the cojones to take on Google at its own game, but most forward-looking people in the industry agree that it’s right about time someone did. Enter the loud and confident Kirt McMaster, CEO of Cyanogen, Inc., last year’s enfant terrible of the mobile tech industry. His most recent fundraising round generated around USD$80 million, even famously without Microsoft’s support, and everything seems to be “green-and-go” for Cyanogen OS.

Cyanogen OS12 to have App Themer, paid themes

Cyanogen OS12 hasn't arrived yet for the OnePlus One devices (and any other smartphones/tablets that will be carrying it) but it doesn't mean we can't have a preview of what to expect from it. Customization seems to be playing a big part in this updated OS, and this time around, they're giving us a peek at something called an App Themer which should make people who love changing themes on their devices a lot really happy.

Microsoft not riding on Cyanogen’s next $110 million funding round

Software giants Microsoft were reported to be interested in Cyanogen’s efforts of creating a non-Google Android system, an alternative to the versions available right now that need Google core apps to work properly. In January, it was reported that Microsoft was willing to splurge as much as USD$70 million in the effort. But in the last few days, with Cyanogen passing the hat again to generate at least $110 million in a latest funding round, it seems that Microsoft is not too excited to pony up the cash.
