CyanogenMod 10.1 already up and running on GALAXY S 4

This is exciting stuff. We have an influx of excellent news for all you readers planning to get the GALAXY S 4. Just days after reports surfaced that AT&T's GALAXY S 4 had a locked bootloader, it has already been cracked. Now this morning it also looks like one of the most popular and exciting custom ROM's in Android, CyanogenMod, should be supporting the device. Check it out below.

CyanogenMod stats opt-out option restored

CyanogenMod users can once again opt-out of the stats gathering. The data is collected towards the appropriately named CMStats and as of today -- CM users now have the option to opt-in, or opt-out of the information gathering. It seems the return of the opt-out feature comes due to an slight uproar within the CyanogenMod user base. The ability to opt-out is nice, however we suspect the folks at CyanogenMod have good intentions when it comes to the data they collect.

Pie Controls come to CyanogenMod 10 to give you more screen real estate

The folks from CyanogenMod took to their Google+ page earlier today to announce an awesome new feature that is now available on many CM10 nightly builds. It's called Pie Controls, and is popular with many Android ROM's, especially Paranoid Android. We first saw Pie Controls in the now replaced stock browser in Honeycomb, but starting today they'll be available in a completely different way.

CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik talks GALAXY S 4

CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik had been employed with Samsung since August 2011 however that employment has since come to an end. But perhaps key for those curious about the GALAXY S 4, Kondik has taken to Google+ and shared his thoughts on the handset. At the risk of giving a spoiler, he seems to be fairly impressed with the GALAXY S 4.

GALAXY S 4 gets uniform “no” from top hack CyanogenMod

The most famous and widely-used customized user interface for Android devices - CyanogenMod - has been declared a no-go for the brand new Samsung GALAXY S 4. This will come as a relatively large blow for Samsung if they do seek the Android hacker bid - or dollar, rather - as such a lack of support for the device from the developer community (hacker community) will result in a distinct lack of fun for those that call hacking their home. In other words, this essentially means Samsung will be selling phones to those that are happy with the way the phone works out of the box.

NOOK Color gets Android 4.2 thanks to CyanogenMod 10.1

The popular Barnes & Noble NOOK Color tablet has been around for some time. It has seen its fair share of update from B&N specifically, but they've basically stopped any sort of support. While the device runs on Android we've seen various ROM's and development for the slate, and now Android 4.2 has arrived (and beat most tablets) thanks to those hard working developers.

CM10.1 nightlies arrive for the CDMA Galaxy Note II

Some good news for CyanogenMod fans that happen to be sporting a CDMA Galaxy Note II. It looks like CM10.1 nightlies have finally arrived. As always, we offer the warning -- the nightly builds, while generally stable, are nightlies for a reason. Simply put, these are early builds and probably best when not used on your primary device.
