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.

Cyanogen ties up deal in India with Micromax

Cyanogen, makers of the hugely popular CyanogenMod version of Android, has now tied up a second deal to sell its firmware on a phone made by gadget manufacturer Micromax, one of the biggest names in smartphones and devices in India. CyanogenMod is known for its minimalist approach, its Android interface and features tweaked for performance, and the lack of bloatware so prevalent in Android versions put out by leading manufacturers.

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.

Cyanogen teases Scramble PIN Layout, Lollipop port starts [CORRECTION]

Do you ever get that feeling of someone watching you as you try to tap in your PIN code on your smartphone, trying to guess the pattern you make and therefore the digits you type in? Such knowledge would be handy in case said mysterious onlookers have plans to divest you of your device. If so, worry no longer. Cyanogen, Inc. has devised a new unlock feature that will mix up those numbers every time you try to unlock your phone, causing confusion for the would-be thief. And maybe even for you.

New OTA update for OnePlus One phones, resolves security issue

Not even a month after OTA update 38R for CyanogenMod 11S was released by OnePlus for their OnePlus One smartphones, another OTA update is on the way for OnePlus device owners. The OnePlus One has gained street notoriety for being a high-specced phone available for a very affordable price point (USD$349) – but some people are also turned off by the “invite only” system they have put in place for purchasing.

Nextbit Baton syncs all apps, data, available on CyanogenMod

When you have multiple mobile devices, languishing batteries aren't your only concern. Keeping your apps and their data in sync across all those devices is always a pain in one's extremities. Some apps can manage that for you, but not all of them. Google has app backups and syncing, but not all Android apps partake of that either. Fortunately, a solution might just be around the corner in the form of Nextbit's Baton. And it will be available in beta as a Cyanogen exclusive.

CyanogenMod 11 M11 is out with another round of polishes

No, you're not seeing double. This is indeed CM11 M11, or to be more verbose, the 11th milestone release for CyanogenMod version 11. This release is sort of less spectacular than previous ones and probably rightly so. It hints that most of the development is now focused more on fine tuning than introducing big, invasive, and potentially disruptive features. It could also be the calm before the storm when Android L is released and all development hell breaks loose.
