CyanogenMod

CyanogenMod may offer a “heavily privacy-focused” version

Nothing has been officially announced just yet, however it looks like the CyanogenMod team is considering another fork of the ROM. The details are coming by way of Steve Kondik who recently hit up Google+ with talk of security. The talk began with mention of the CYAN-28 issue, which dealt with the "revoke app permissions" feature that was found in earlier builds of Cyanogen. This particular feature was included back in the CM7 days and judging from the "Won't Fix" closing this issue recently received, it looks like it will not be coming back anytime soon.

The details are coming by way of Steve Kondik who recently made mention that the T-Mobile GALAXY S 4 nightlies have arrived and that they will be porting CM10.1 to other variants when they get the devices.

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.
