CMApps update detects what version of Android you use

We have talked about CMApps before; this is the app that allows you to run CyanogenMod apps on your device without having to root your smartphone. This is a great way for you to try out some of the apps that come on CyanogenMod without having to void your warranty. The app has been updated with some new features and one of them is a big deal.

OnePlus names own Android ROM as Oxygen, Hydrogen in China

It's no secret that OnePlus is cutting its ties with Cyanogen over the fiasco with Micromax in India. It has been developing its own custom ROM to replace CyanogenMod in its future devices. And while it isn't yet revealing what that ROM will look like or will offer, it is now announcing its chosen name. Its ROM will be called "Oxygen OS", at least in the rest of the world. But in China, it will be called Hydrogen instead.

Microsoft invested in Cyanogen’s anti-Google war chest, says tip

According to sources familiar with the matter, Microsoft has invested in Cyanogen, Inc., making a small contribution in the $70 million of the $100 million that the startup claims to have been able to raise. The startup has so far only accounted for the $30 million of the total. More than just a magnanimous donation, however, this move is seen to be Redmond's play to wrest control of Android away from Google, a sentiment that it shares with Cyanogen. Of course, this rumor is likely to raise many mixed emotions over the future of the platform and Microsoft's involvement.

A behind the scenes look at CyanogenMod’s new Theme Engine

It has been but a year since but a year since CyanogenMod let out its theme engine, alongside the launch of CyanogenMod 11S on the OnePlus One. The Android ROM community, however, is hardly one to rest on its laurels and is once again working on a new theme engine in time for a Lollipop-based CyanogenMod 12 release. CM Theme Engine co-author Clark Scheff gives an overview of how the engine works and some of the idiosyncrasies theme designers have to consider.

CM12 nightlies bring Lollipop to eight Xperia devices

Early this month, CyanogenMod turned on the engines that will produce the nightly builds for CyangeonMod 12, which is based on the Android 5.0. As much as 31 devices and models were the first to receive the candy goodness, but now 8 more devices from Xperia's ranks are joining the fray. From the most recent Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact to the older Xperia T and V, Xperia fans can now try out the latest Android version on their devices, provided they're willing to take the risk.

CyanogenMod Theme engine starts the trek towards CM12

Theme makers, on your mark, get set, and go start porting your masterpieces over to the new CyangeonMod theme engine. The popular Android custom ROM has just ported over its shiny new theme engine to Google's shiny new Android Lollipop version and now it is putting out a call to theme designers to do their part to port their designs over there as well. That said, given the large leap from Holo to Material Design, the transition presents a few stumbling blocks for theme designers to take note of.

CyanogenMod now officially supports Android One

It might have taken a while, but a lot of Android One users would probably be very happy to know that CyanogenMod, the popular aftermarket software outfit that tweaks Android into a better version of itself, is now giving it official support. There are only three devices under this Android umbrella, and all three are getting some CM11 love.

CyanogenMod gets the ball rolling for Lollipop-based CM12

Among the flood of CES 2015 news this week, this announcement is probably what CyanogenMod fans have been waiting for to kickstart the new year. The developers of Android's most popular custom ROM have just switched on CyanogenMod 12 nightly builds for as much as 31 devices and variants. And with that, of course, comes the sweet promise of Android 5.0 Lollipop descending upon its users in the near future.

Micromax unveils YUreka Cyanogen smartphone for India

We mentioned yesterday that Micromax had taken Shenzhen OnePlus to court and won an injunction because Shenzhen was selling smartphones in India that ran Cyanogen.

The resulting injunction forced Shenzhen to remove its devices from Indian stores.
