Cyanogen conversation leak tips OPPO N1 with dual-boot option

Steve Kondik of Cyanogen appeared earlier today in the latest OPPO teaser video. These teasers are all leading up to the September 23rd announcement for the OPPO N1 smartphone. Anyway, given the combination of news from earlier in the week about Cyanogen forming into a company and looking for hardware partner and the earlier video from Kondik -- it was seeming likely that the N1 and CyanogenMod were going to be connected in some way.

OPPO teased as first Cyanogen hardware partner

Earlier in the week we saw the news about how CyanogenMod was becoming Cyanogen Inc.

Well, while speculation has thrown around a few names, it looks like OPPO will be the first.

Focal camera app removed from CyanogenMod

CyanogenMod detailed phase 1 of Nemesis back in late-July and as a result we saw a new camera app called Focal. The app isn't widely available in CyanogenMod ROMs at this point, however it was available for download for those who were willing to sideload the apk file. But with that in mind, it looks like the Focal camera app has been removed and it is looking like it will remain separate from CyanogenMod moving forward.

CyanogenMod installer heading to the Play Store in the “coming weeks”

There has been plenty of information coming from the CyanogenMod team over the past weeks and months.

But that being said, while may are interested in CyanogenMod -- the installation process could be a turn off for some.

CyanogenMod 10.1.3 RC2 update now hitting devices

Many are already beginning to look towards Android 4.3, which would be CyanogenMod 10.2, however the work for CM10.1 is not yet done. In fact, the folks at CyanogenMod have recently been making their way through release candidate versions of CM10.1.3. We saw details of CM10.1.3 RC1 towards the end of August and more recently -- there is CM10.1.3 RC2.

CyanogenMod Power Widgets to be replaced by a “Quick Access Ribbon”

The folks at CyanogenMod are prepping for some upcoming changes to the power widgets. These have been used for quite some time now and were originally introduced back on the CM7 days. And for those who haven't been around CyanogenMod for that long -- CM7 looks back towards Android 2.3. That aside, the power widgets will be going away in favor of something called the Quick Access Ribbon.
