Cyanogen Release Teaser Video Showing Cyanogen OS 12 (Lollipop) Boot Animation





For those interested in Cyanogen, the last year has been an interesting one. Just under a year ago, the OnePlus One launched with Cyanogen as its default OS and this came in the form of CM11S. Since then, the company has very much been working on separating the two variants of Cyanogen, with the what is now known as the ‘community build’, CyanogenMod and the ‘commercial build’, Cyanogen OS. The best way to understand the difference, is that devices which come with Cyanogen preinstalled are running Cyanogen OS. As such and in terms of the OnePlus One, over the various updates, CM11S has now effectively become Cyanogen OS 11.
Well, following on from Cyanogen OS 11, is Cyanogen OS 12, which also goes by the name Cyanogen OS ‘L’. Needless to say, this build is the commercial version of Cyanogen Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and is certainly one of the most awaited OSes out there. Users running the OnePlus One (and the Yureka by Yu) will be eagerly awaiting the update which brings Cyanogen OS 12 to their devices. A small teaser on what to expect came last week, when Cyanogen announced that the Boxer email client will come as the default email app on Cyanogen OS. Not to mention in recent weeks we have also seen a massive rebranding from Cyanogen, resulting in a new look and logo.
Well, following on from the rebrand, Cyanogen today have released an interesting short video which claims to show the new boot animation for Cyanogen OS 12. The video does not supply any real details about the boot animation beyond stating “Introducing the new Cyanogen OS boot animation. Coming soon!”. To add to this, the video is not very long either. However, if you do hang on to the very end, you will get to see a very quick glimpse of what seems to be the Cyanogen OS 12 homescreen. Of course, there is still no firm details as to when Cyanogen’s Lollipop will turn up on devices. That said, this does at least, serve as a reminder that it is edging closer. Are you looking forward to Cyanogen OS 12? What do you think of the new boot animation? Let us know.




Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Official: Cyanogen has raised $80 million in Series C funding





We’d heard Cyanogen recently secured a massive wad of cash in Series C funding, and now that news has been made official. The company reportedly raked in $80 million of fresh investments from a sizable and noteworthy group of ventures and companies, making it $110 million that they’ve raised to date and should put the company’s valuation at just around $1 billion.
On the list were Twitter Ventures, Qualcomm Incorporated, Telefónica Ventures, Smartfren Telecom, Index Ventures, Access Industries, Rupert Murdoch, Vivi Nevo. They were joined by existing investors Benchmark, Andreessen Horowitz, Redpoint Ventures, and Tencent Holdings Ltd. There were more, though Cyanogen is opting not to disclose who at this time.
There were rumors rampant early on that Microsoft would be billed as a minority investor in this round of funding, though that rumor was later debunked. That doesn’t mean the two didn’t at least talk about it, though, so there’s nothing that stops it from happening at any point in the future.
The growing interest in Cyanogen likely stems from a long-term vision the company has set forth to create a new Android-based ecosystem to make it more approachable for budding device makers than going the Google route. We’ve already seen the tangible results of the partnership in phones like the OnePlus One and Micromax’s Yureka phone, and even Qualcomm has decided to team up with them to make Cyanogen OS available on Snapdragon development prototype devices.
The exact plan for the future is still unclear to the public, but to be able to generate $80 million from a group of money-flooded companies and individuals they have to be onto something big. Let’s hope it won’t take long to find out.

BLU is making a Cyanogen OS phone later this year that won’t have any Google services





Cyanogen has been alluding to this for a while now, but they’re about to partner with someone on a phone that doesn’t rely on any of Google’s services. That much was revealed to Forbes in a profile about the up-and-coming company after they’d announced an $80 million Series C funding spurt.
The partner is BLU, a budding maker of budget smartphones that actually aren’t bad for their low cost. The details are thin right now, but the smartphone is said to be on tap later this year and will use a variety of apps and services to replace what Google’s suite provides. Here are just a few examples of which apps BLU’s CEO thinks can be used to replace the popular ones Google provides:
  • Amazon’s app store for downloading new apps and games
  • Opera’s web browser
  • Nokia Here for maps and navigation
  • Dropbox and Microsoft’s OneDrive for cloud storage
  • Spotify for music.
  • Bing for search
  • Microsoft’s Cortana as a replacement for Google Now
But the big question remains: will this be successful? If so, how? And — more importantly — why do they even want to do this? Kirt McMaster’s promise to “take Android from Google” was recently reiterated by stating he believed his company was going to put “a bullet through Google’s head.”

At this point, Cyanogen’s motives don’t seem all that clear. If we’re to draw examples from a high school social setting, their behavior (or that of the mouthy CEO’s, anyway) is akin to taking the ball from the 10 other kids enjoying a fun game of kickball for no reason than to be heady and rebellious.
Perhaps the reason isn’t clear to someone not involved with the day-to-day workings of the company, but our idea of making a new OS with a new ecosystem and new services isn’t “we’re going to dump everything Google, and replace them with offerings from other random companies.” One might assume this play is simply about money, and Cyanogen’s only gravy train is to strike deals with developers and companies to get their apps preloaded on these devices.
With no apparent rhyme or reason Cyanogen wants to be as far away from Google as possible, and we still have no idea why. It’d be nice to know, though, so we’re hoping those questions are answered as we inch closer to the release of this smartphone (and we’re hoping they’re answered in a far more tolerable tone than McMaster’s latest blurts).

How to Put CyanogenMod on Your Android Phone



You may have heard of CyanogenMod and admired it from afar, but now's the time to seize the day and get it installed on your Android phone. For those new to flashing phones, there are official apps for your mobile and for Windows to help you along, and we've explained everything you need to know below.
The CyanogenMod installers we're looking at here make use of official Android and Windows apps to replace whatever's currently on your Android phone with CyanogenMod. These installers make the process much easier than it has been in the past, though for it to work you'll need a supported device.
If your device or device firmware isn't supported then the process is a lot more involved. Don't lose hope though, because it can still be done if you're prepared to put in some extra time and effort—we've included some pointers for you at the end of this article.
About CyanogenMod

123
Why would you want to install CyanogenMod in the first place? It's not for the faint-hearted: You're probably going to void your phone's warranty along the way and getting it installed can be a tricky process. It should only take a few minutes but with so many devices, computers and configurations out there, issues can crop up.
That said, it gives you a lot more flexibility when it comes to customizing your phone (or tablet). While it adds some tweaks of its own on top of Google's official software, these tweaks are thoughtfully done—you'll get rid of a lot of the bloatware that might be weighing down your handset at the moment.

Updates are fast and you'll be kept right up to date with the latest versions of Android. Everything from the notification drawer to the settings pane can be personalized, and you can take more control over individual app permissions too. There's also an integrated file manager with root access.
You can find more on CyanogenMod here. Remember that everything on your phone is going to be obliterated in this process, so make sure you've got all of those photos, documents, contacts, saved games and tunes backed up in the cloud somewhere.
Installing CyanogenMod


First of all you're going to need to allow 'unknown' apps to run on your device, as Google won't host the CyanogenMod installer in its Play Store for fairly obvious reasons (it would rather you stuck with stock). In Lollipop, go to Settings then tap Security and enable the feature marked Unknown sources.
With that done, you can get the app package on your phone—visit http://get.cm in your phone's browser or scan the QR code on the Cyanogen site instead. When the .apk download is finished (you may have to tap through a security warning first), it appears as a notification, which you can press to install the app.

Follow the instructions on screen, tapping Install then Open. Work through the steps as they appear, enabling USB debugging along the way so the desktop app has permission to change your phone's settings, and changing the connection mode to Camera (PTP).
With that done, you can turn your attention to your PC (the app tells you when to make the switch). You need the CyanogenMod desktop installer application for Windows, which you can get from here. Once the installation and setup procedure has finished, you'll need to disable your antivirus if applicable, then tap through the USB debugging confirmation.
The desktop software, like the mobile app, takes you step-by-step through the process of flashing CyanogenMod to your device. All being well, within a few minutes you should have a brand new OS running on your mobile.
Unsupported devices


If you have a device that's not supported by Cyanogen's quick installer (you'll see a warning on screen if this is the case) then you need to get friendly with the Android SDK tool you can install as part of Android Studio.
Unfortunately we don't have space to guide you through the ins and outs of adb commands and the installation process for just one device model, let alone the countless variations and issues you might come across, but we can point you towards some useful resources.

If you're completely new to the Android SDK and flashing devices then our friends at Lifehacker have a very good primer you can refer to. There are some official resources you can check up on, though they're not great for beginners, and How-To Geek has another worthwhile introduction to the software.

The Easiest Way to Install Android's ADB and Fastboot Tools on Any OS

If you've ever tried to root your Android phone or flash a ROM, you may have heard about ADB… Read more lifehacker.​com


Once you're reasonably happy with how the SDK works, head to the CyanogenMod wiki to find step-by-step instructions for your particular handset. Briefly, what you're doing is unlocking the phone, installing a recovery partition, then installing the latest CyanogenMod on top.
All of this is done through the command line interface inside the SDK's platform-tools folder (on Windows, it's in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Android\sdk). All being well, within a few minutes you should have the latest shiny version of Cyanogen up and running on your Android device.

Cyanogen OS 12 rollout resumes for OnePlus One with critical bug fixes, “OK OnePlus” in tow





OnePlus unceremoniously halted the OnePlus One’s Cyanogen OS 12 update earlier this week in order to add in an”OK OnePlus” voice command, and just as they’ve promised the upgrade is going right back out before the weekend begins.
Cyanogen’s Steve Kondik shed more light on the rollout and why it had to happen. The main reason is that they encountered a critical bug that was of utmost importance to fix, specifically in areas of telephony and MMS messaging.
So here’s what’s going down:
  • Users who haven’t received the upgrade to Cyanogen OS 12 will now get a small prep upgrade, and then this new version over-the-air, complete with the voice command and bug fixes.
  • Those who have already received the upgrade will receive a small upgrade that includes the bug fixes and voice command.
And that’s that. Sometimes a delay is in the best interest of the masses, and we’re glad OnePlus and Cyanogen decided to do what was necessary to eradicate what could have turned out to be very serious issues. The upgrade is still rolling out in stages so go ahead and check for it once you’ve gotten to a WiFi hotspot and a decently charged battery.

Cyanogen CEO: OnePlus would have only sold one phone outside of China without CyanogenMod





You can officially close the books on the OnePlus and Cyanogen marriage. If Steve Kondik’s assertion that you likely won’t be seeing any more collaborations from the two didn’t cement it, perhaps CEO Kirt McMaster’s penchant for saying the wrong things at the wrong time will.
The heady CEO spoke at the Global Mobile Internet Conference in Beijing, and laid out this following juicy nugget:
Without Cyanogen, OnePlus would have sold like one device in international markets. Essentially they built their brand on the back of Cyanogen.
Whether McMasters’ comments are true remains to be determined, though we’re sure he could have made his point with a bit more class. It’s natural for the CEO to feel good about his company’s position, what with them securing a major partnership with Microsoft, and all. They’ve also gotten deals inked with major Chinese OEMs, Qualcomm and more to get Cyanogen loaded up on phones and development devices as soon as 2015.
There’s no doubt Cyanogen is great, but to suggest OnePlus would have been next to nothing without them is quite the boisterous stance. Luckily for OnePlus, there’s a chance to prove everyone wrong with a follow-up that runs software built by the folks who make what many consider to be the second best ROM in the land — Paranoid Android.

Cyanogen OS to get caller ID integration thanks to Truecaller partnership





Cyanogen Inc today announced a new partnership. They’ve teamed up with Truecaller, the makers of a caller ID app that’ll show you unknown callers or identify phone numbers known to be spam. The integration will come at the OS level, says Cyanogen, so there will be no need to download a separate app if caller ID is something you fancy.
That deep integration will also allow the company to integrate the information you’re looking for in a way that makes sense. Whereas a standalone caller ID app might require going into their app to see information about calls that were already placed, you will be able to see that information right from Cyanogen’s built-in dialer.



Cyanogen says the deal will apply to all future mobile devices that ship with Cyanogen OS globally, and will also be available to tens of millions of existing users via an over-the-air update. We don’t have an exact timeline on when to expect these features to arrive to existing customers, but we imagine it shouldn’t be long if they’re already promising it to be ready for all future Cyanogen devices.

Messaging Redesign Teased for Cyanogen OS





The differences between Cyanogen OS and CyanogenMod are sometimes a bit difficult to see. The main difference is that CyanogenMod is the community-based ROM we all know and love. And Cyanogen OS is the OS that is shipped on Cyanogen phones like the OnePlus One, Micromax YU Yureka and many others.
Cyanogen has been rebuilding the Messaging app that is part of Cyanogen OS and will also be included in CyanogenMod. It’s more or less a complete messaging solution. It’ll handle SMS, MMS, and Group messages. Additionally, it’ll also provide integration to their WhispherPush service which will be getting relaunched. On the Cyanogen OS side, users will be able to use the TrueCaller integration to view caller ID as well as block spammers.
The company has taken in feedback from their users, with surveys on Google+ and Facebook from last November. The redesign of the Messaging app will be done in a few phases, with the first phase being the base of the app, so the team can add more features easily. Cyanogen will be redesigning the entire messaging app, and it’ll use quite a bit of material design as well.
Looking at the mock screenshots that the team has put together, the new messaging app looks a lot like Inbox from Google. Which isn’t a bad thing. It includes swipe to delete in the message conversation list, as well as an in-message media player which works for attachments that are video or audio. That means you won’t need to choose an app to play the video or audio attachment in. This should make the user experience much better, as you’re not jumping through apps.
It’s a great looking app, and we’re definitely excited to see the finished product from the Cyanogen team. The Cyanogen team urges users to send them feedback, just hit the source link below, and you’ll find their blog post where you can leave feedback in the comments. Hopefully the header color is able to be customized by the user. The Cyanogen team seems to be hard at work, it’ll be interesting to see what other kinds of goodies they have for us.

Cyanogen Teases New Quick Contact Card in CyanogenMod





Last week, Cyanogen teased a new version of their messaging app, which will be coming out soon for both Cyanogen OS and CyanogenMod. Now they are teasing the Quick Contact Card which will be making its way to CyanogenMod soon. The reason for them teasing these features is to get feedback from their users, which is super important in software development. You can see some of the examples of the new Quick contact Card in the gallery at the bottom of this post.
For those unaware of what we are talking about here, when you tap the avatar for a contact, whether it be in the dialer, messages, or another app, the popup that shows up is known as the Quick Contact Card. And shows all kinds of info about that contact. Like their phone number, address, as well as ways to contact them. There are a couple of reasons why Cyanogen is looking to change the Quick Contact card. First is to construct a quick contact card that is both beautiful and functional when using images that are in low resolution. The second is to allow for more than three operations to be displayed to the user without using the action overflow menu.
What Cyanogen has done here is, they’ve blurred the contact’s picture in the background, and have a smaller round avatar for them. Which has their name and location next to it. With four icons below it, and their phone number and email below that. It’s not a huge change, but it does look very nice, and would fit in nicely with CyanogenMod 12.
Cyanogen is looking to launch this design in their nightlies for CyanogenMod 12 once they refine it based on feedback from the community. And as with most parts of Cyanogen, they will be continuing to refine the design after the launch. If you have any feedback for the Cyanogen team, we urge you to check out the source link below and leave a comment on their blog post. That way their designers, and engineers will see your feedback.

CyanogenMod releases final CM11 and CM12 builds as they focus on CM12.1





Although we admit, we don’t ROM as hard as we used to, we know many of you are still rooting and flashing like it was 2009. Those of you who are fans of CyanogenMod’s custom ROM are in luck. The Android developers announced last night that final builds for both CM11 and CM12 have been released. Also known as a snapshot, these stable builds will officially conclude CyanogenMod’s work on 11.0 and 12.0 as they shift focus on CM12.1 (based on Android 5.1) and look ahead to Android M.
So, why did CyanogenMod release another CM11 build which is based on KitKat? Apparently, CyanogenMod found that a good amount of their users were still running these KitKat builds although they’re not exactly sure why. We know not everyone has been a fan of Lollipop or nightly builds, so perhaps these users were just waiting for a nice stable Lollipop build before moving forward. That, or they just like really enjoy KitKat.
In either case, you can find the snapshots on CyanogenMod’s download page here. As usual, CyanogenMod wouldn’t commit to a specific date users can expect a CM12.1 (Android 5.1.1) release build, so you’ll just have to hang in there a little while longer.

CyanogenMod Team Working New Browser, ‘Gello’





For years now, the team behind the aftermarket Android ROM, CyanogenMod, have been adding new features and apps. Many of these features, such as the famous quick toggle settings made their way into popular smartphones and then into Android itself. Theme support was – and still is – something that CyanogenMod was known for, and manufacturers like Sony, HTC and Samsung have all adopted the idea for themselves in recent releases. Now though, the CyanogenMod team is looking to take on the mobile browser, bringing users one more choice in the form of ‘Gello’, powered by the open source Chromium project that feeds into Google’s Chrome browser.
Joey Rizzoli, a CyanogenMod team member appears to have been working on hard on the new project, and he recently took to Google+ to show off the new project before the code is merged. Many browsers these days are powered by the Chromium project’s rendering engine, including Opera as well as Google Chrome, so it makes sense that the CyanogenMod team would want to work with the code already available. Across two posts, Rizzoli shows off the new browser in a short, then longer video, showing off what looks very much like Google Chrome. Of course, this is still early days, and there’s no telling just where Gello – if it ends up being officially named Gello – ends up going after the initial release.
Despite the fact that Chrome has now become the go-to browser for the majority of Android users, the likes of HTC and Samsung continue to include their own web browsers. As Cyanogen signs up more device partners, it’s a smart move to include their own browser. To those that thing this latest move is another that ‘CyanogenMod hates Google’, Rizzoli says that “you’ll always be free to choose to install your GApps package alongside with CyanogenMod and repace all the CyanogenMod apps you don’t like/use with Google’s”. There are already plenty of other choices for web browsers in the Play Store, including Mozilla’s Firefox which uses its own rendering engine, and takes a different approach to Google’s own. As the internet has become such a big part of our lives, having one more choice of web browser doesn’t sound like a bad idea.
Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Boxer Calendar to Replace Google Calendar on Cyanogen OS v12.1





Boxer has unveiled a new Calendar app that they hope will provide the range of features necessary to satisfy the appetite of those who aren’t satisfied with, say, Google Calendar. Boxer’s big play is to make it easier for your email and calendar to work together.
For instance, if someone sends you an email asking you if you’re available at a certain time, Boxer can pull from your calendar details and give you an instant look at whether anything’s on your plate. If not, you can easily set something up with whoever you’re meeting and Boxer can make it effortless to add the event to your calendar. Neato!
To start, Boxer will come with full support for Exchange Activesync, but they’re also looking to add Gmail and Yahoo down the line. One more added important detail is that the app will become the default Calendar app for Cyanogenmod OS 12.1, so it effectively replaces Google Calendar.
Remember that Cyanogen OS is the version that is pre-installed on OEM phones, while CyanogenMod is the custom ROM you can flash on your device. Regardless, if you don’t care for Boxer then it should be easy enough to use something more your style. You can give it a try right now by grabbing it through Google Play.

CyanogenMod team Already Working on Marshmallow Release





Earlier this week, Google released the factory images for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow release, and the OTA’s followed soon there after. Google also pushed the code to AOSP earlier this week so custom ROM makers like CyanogenMod can get started on making their Marshmallow release happen. Thanks to a redditor by the name of burritofire, CyanogenMod has already started work on CyanogenMod 13.0, which will be their Marshmallow release. On their code review site, you can see a number of entries for CM 13.0, which is very exciting.
While CyanogenMod has indeed begun working on CyanogenMod 13.0, that doesn’t mean it’s coming anytime soon. While Marshmallow is a relatively small update, compared to Lollipop at least, these things take time and can be very buggy when they first start rolling out. In the past, we’ve seen new versions of CyanogenMod roll out to Nexus devices first, and I’d expect that to be the same this time around as well. It’s just easier to start with devices that already have branches of code from Google, which are the Nexus devices. After a few days it’ll likely branch out to the other current flagships, including the Moto X Pure Edition, LG G4, and a few others. It’ll be interesting to see if the Galaxy Note 5 gets CyanogenMod 13.0 support right away considering it uses an Exynos processor.
Now it’s important here that we explain that this is CyanogenMod and not Cyanogen OS. So if you have a Cyanogen OS, like the many from YU, or the ZUK Z1 (there are a few others available now), this is not the same software. CyanogenMod is the open source ROM that is available for many Android smartphones available right now, and Cyanogen OS is closed source and only available for a few devices, including the OnePlus One, the ZUK Z1 and a few others. It’s important that we don’t confuse the two.
CyanogenMod for Marshmallow is coming. And we’ll be sure to let everyone know once the update to CyanogenMod 13.0 is available, as well as which devices it is available for. So make sure you stay tuned to Android Headlines for all of the details.

Cyanogen Making “Live Lock Screen” for CM13





Cyanogen, the commercial arm of the massively popular community Android software Cyanogenmod, is at it again. This time, they’ve cooked up an active lock screen module that can do things like display animations and pull pictures from social media. A demo was shown at 2015’s Big Android BBQ that demonstrated various features of the new lock screen, expected to make its debut in a near future iteration of Cyanogen-kissed CM13, a custom variant of Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The first demo shown was a simple art parallax. A cityscape, drawn from vectored rectangles, was shown on screen. It bounced up and down, revealing and hiding more of its contents, as the screen was partially swiped. A full swipe cleared away the city scene to show the device’s home screen. The second demo showed an effect not unlike the stock Android live wallpaper that depicts leaves falling into a body of water, complete with ripples. Instead of leaves, however, delightful animated sea creatures frolicked about, interacting with the user’s touches and the resulting ripples in the water. The soothing ripple effect and the sea critters clear away in response to a full swipe, giving the user access to the home screen. A third demo showed a delightfully bright-colored party popper, the pull-apart kind. The popper stretched and danced in response to touch. On a full swipe, the popper ruptured, treating the user to a shower of confetti before using their device. The fourth and most intriguing demo was a test of a system in development to show social media information on the lock screen. In the demo, photos of the Big Android BBQ during which the announcement took place were pulled from Instagram and shown until the device was unlocked.
Live lock screens are nothing new for users of some ROMs, such as Xiaomi’s MIUI skin. You could also drop widgets onto your lock screen in prior Android versions, with the capability being removed and requiring help from an outside app in Android 5.0 Lollipop onward. The exciting thing here isn’t the concept of a live lock screen, rather the development behind it. Cyanogen, one of the biggest names in Android development, is devoting resources to spicing up and increasing the usefulness of lock screens everywhere and only time will tell where that development will take us.

Cyanogen Teases Feb. 22nd, 2016 Announcement




Mobile World Congress officially kicks into full gear on Monday, February 22nd. While press day is Sunday, February 21st – that’s where Samsung, LG, Huawei and many others are making their announcements for what they are showing off in Barcelona. Others will still announce their products on the 22nd when the show officially starts, and it looks like Cyanogen is going to be one of them.




The company posted a teaser on their Twitter account this week stating, “Google and Apple have their mobile operating systems. Where’s yours? 2.22.16 #AndroidEvolved #MWC16” This leads us to believe that Cyanogen OS 13 – or perhaps something better – is being announced on the 22nd of this month. It’s worth noting that Cyanogen Inc., hasn’t begun rolling out Cyanogen OS 13 to their devices yet. Perhaps this is when that rollout would begin? Currently Cyanogen OS devices are running on Cyanogen OS 12.1 which is based off of Android 5.1 Lollipop. Of course, the company could also be launching a new smartphone and/or partnership at the same time. That wouldn’t be a huge surprise at all.




Cyanogen decided to go corporate a few years ago. So now we have CyanogenMod which is their open source custom ROM, then there’s Cyanogen OS which is their closed-source proprietary software that only is available for the devices that they’ve partnered with other manufacturers for, like OnePlus and ZUK. Cyanogen is also in a partnership with Microsoft and has put Microsoft’s services within their closed-source ROM, Cyanogen OS. Nothing to be afraid of as their apps are uninstallable or can be disabled with ease.
We have no clue what Cyanogen might be announcing on the 22nd, but we are in Barcelona and will be checking out what Cyanogen has to show everyone. Last year, we got the chance to catch up with Cyanogen at Mobile World Congress and talk about what was on the radar for the company, including getting a look at the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ which sported a large screen and a stylus, but ultimately got cancelled, unfortunately. Since then, Cyanogen has worked with numerous other partners in emerging countries to create some great smartphones like the ZUK Z1.

Cyanogen’s MOD Unlocks Android’s Customization Potential




When it comes to deep Android modifications, Cyanogen is no stranger to the game. From its inception CyanogenMod, as it’s still known in in its open source version, started with the goal of building a better Android without compromising performance by adding bloatware or ugly skins. Ever since it’s incorporation a few years ago and its launch as CyanogenOS on many dedicated phones on the market, the team at Cyanogen has been working on developing new features that users will hopefully find worthy of gracing their phones. We’ve seen plenty of enhancements to Android too, not just new features, such as further improved app protection in Marshmallow as well as the TrueCaller dialer to help better identify unknown callers.
But Cyanogen has also been working with Microsoft to change the game for Android and develop a version of the open source OS that’s not completely dependent on Google all the time. While plenty of people have expressed their issues with this partnership, Cyanogen is working to give users more options when it comes to integration of personal digital assistants and other parts of Android as well. We’ve seen Microsoft’s Cortana become more deeply integrated into Android instead of using Google Now for everything, and now Cyanogen is working to help developers integrate their own apps more deeply into your daily lives and unlock the true potential of said app.
This new platform, appropriately called MOD, gives developers deeper access into the inner workings of Android, particularly to the places most developers weren’t allowed to go before. These sorts of places are where Google Now resides, the dialer functions, and other lower level system functions normally work. By giving access to these areas developers can now integrate their apps more elegantly into the system, starting with a few Microsoft apps for demonstration. For instance you’ll now find OneNote functionality built right into the dialer so you can quickly jot down notes while on a phone call without leaving the dialer screen, for instance. Skype is now integrated straight into the dialer as well, and there’s even new functionality in the camera using Microsoft’s Hyperlapse feature.
Or of course there’s the even deeper Cortana integration so that every aspect of the phone can be controlled by Microsoft’s digital assistant. These are just a few examples of what can be done with MOD, and Cyanogen is making its development kit available to developers right away so that they can begin work on something greater. At its heart Android is open source, and that means giving users the ability to make the OS what they want, whether OEMs like it or not. Check out the gallery of a few examples of Cyanogen’s MOD additions to CyanogenOS 13.0 below, and if you haven’t already received the update on your COS-powered phone yet you should be very soon.

Steve Kondik blames Kirt McMaster for Cyanogen Inc's failure, CyanogenMod to reorganize and regroup


Steve Kondik has left a statement about the rather troubling news coming out of Cyanogen Inc. this week on the [private] official CyanogenMod developer Google+ community, and things aren't looking pretty. While Kondik doesn't say outright that he's leaving "the Inc," it's pretty strongly implied that he wants nothing to do with the company anymore. The problem is that while Kondik wants out and to move on with the CyanogenMod project, there could be significant legal hurdles in fully detangling the open source community project from the for-profit venture.
Kondik also essentially confirms what many had thought for years: the Inc. was badly mismanaged, the executive leadership frequently disagreed, and Kirt McMaster's moronic comments about putting bullets through heads were an unending source of headaches and embarrassment for all. Kondik doesn't mince words, and openly blames McMaster for the company's numerous false starts, media snafus, and confusing business model:
My co-founder [McMaster] apparently became unhappy with running the business and not owning the vision. This is when the "bullet to the head" and other misguided media nonsense started, and the bad business deals were signed. Being second in command, all I could do was try and stop it, do damage control, and hope every day that something new didn't happen. The worst of it happened internally and it became a generally shitty place to work because of all the conflict. I think the backlash from those initial missteps convinced him that what we had needed to be destroyed.
I think it's pretty clear where Kondik believes the problem with Cyanogen Inc. was centered, and while I am not privy to this larger history in the way Kondik is, I'm inclined to agree that McMaster has always seemed grossly incompetent in his role. Of course, Kondik is likely to avoid emphasizing any of the poor decisions he made (like bringing McMaster on in the first place) in a post that essentially seeks to damn the whole company for burning him, but hey: I can see where he's coming from. The feelings are clearly still raw, and Kondik does place some of the blame at his own feet:
With plenty of cash in the bank, the new guys tore the place down and will go and do whatever they are going to do. It's probably for the best and I wish them luck, but what I was trying to do, is over. Boo hoo, right? I fucked up and got fucked over. It's the Silicon Valley way isn't it? First world problems in the extreme? It hurts, a lot. I lost a lot of friends, and I'm truely [sic] sorry to everyone I let down. I wish I had made different choices and trusted different people (especially one in particularly early on), but all I care about now is figuring out what to do next.
What's next, apparently, is the question of reenergizing and reorganizing the CyanogenMod community effort. The problem with that is that Cyanogen Inc. has control over some of the brand and trademarks around Cyanogen and CyanogenMod, and so the whole thing will likely have to be forked and rebranded, at least according to Kondik.
Kondik has suggested in the comments of the post that he may attempt to crowdfund a relaunch of the ROM and structure a new company around the effort as a 501.3c - a non-profit organization. Of course, this is just spit-balling among some community organizers, and does not represent an official plan going forward.

Update on Cyanogen


Earlier this week I shared the plan to consolidate Cyanogen's sites into a single team in Palo Alto by the end of the year, offering the Seattle employees an option to relocate to California.
The purpose of the change is to improve the communication and performance of the team which will now operate under one roof. This consolidation effort will allow us to build in greater efficiencies and reduce restrictions in our product development lifecycle. Understandably some are unable to follow their role and relocate. We appreciate and value all of the amazing work these individuals have provided to the growth and success of Cyanogen.
With these changes, Cyanogen has separated ties with Steve Kondik, allowing him to continue to forge his path as he sees fit. We wish him the best of luck in his next venture.
I'm very excited about our new consolidated team here in Palo Alto and the opportunity to leverage our core technologies developed over the last few years in new and exciting ways. The company is well funded and will continue to recruit great people to help expand the core functions of our team.

LineageOS (or Lineage Android Distribution) seems very likely to be CyanogenMod's new name, at least for now


Steve Kondik didn't mince words in what is now viewed as his parting statement from Cyanogen Inc. earlier this month. In that statement, though, he alluded to the potential intellectual property issues CyanogenMod might face if it was reorganized under a new non-profit corporate entity, and so the possibility of a new name was raised. It seems that name has, at least provisionally, been decided upon: LineageOS. Or Lineage Android Distribution - it could apparently be either.
We've heard from sources close to the project that one current internal nickname is "Laos" or LAOS, standing for Lineage Android Operating System. While the name is still subject to some debate, an official repo bearing the LineageOS name has popped up. The title on the page is Lineage Android Distribution, so perhaps LAD could be a nickname, as well.
The repo is very active, with bits of CyanogenMod being pulled in even as I write this article, and we have it on good authority that this repo is indeed associated with the reorganization effort, at least at this time. We don't know much else about the project or its status, and it's safe to say that a lot of what's happening is very fluid right now, regardless, so anything and everything could change.

Cyanogen's services and nightly builds are shutting down next week



Cyanogen's grand plan to put "a bullet through Google's head" has failed.
It's been a rough couple of months for Cyanogen that saw the company undergo a round of layoffs, shutter its headquarters, and part ways with its co-founder Steve Kondik. The company has now announced that it will be shutting its services and nightly builds after December 31.
In a short post on its blog, Cyanogen said:
As part of the ongoing consolidation of Cyanogen, all services and Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will be discontinued no later than 12/31/16. The open source project and source code will remain available for anyone who wants to build CyanogenMod personally.
Essentially, what this means is that devices running Cyanogen OS will no longer pick up updates, and will entirely rely on the community-driven CyanogenMod ROM for further development.
Cyanogen OS gained momentum thanks to its partnership with OnePlus on the OnePlus One, but that relationship soured thanks to an exclusive deal Cyanogen made with Indian handset manufacturer Micromax. That exclusivity deal ended earlier this year, paving the way for Lenovo's ZUK Z1. The partnership with Lenovo didn't work out as well, as the ZUK Z1 never received any updates.
If you're running a handset powered by Cyanogen OS, your best recourse is to find a CyanogenMod ROM for your phone. What's left of Cyanogen will be focused on working with partners over its modular platform.

Goodbye CyanogenMod, hello Lineage Android



CyanogenMod is shutting down, but the Lineage Android Project is poised to keep its spirit alive.
CyanogenMod is no more.
In a post on the official CyanogenMod blog, we're told that the current state of everything Cyanogen means it's no longer feasible to continue and that the best path forward requires change. Nobody should be surprised after recent events within the Cyanogen Inc. parent company and today's announcement that it has reached the end of the road and will shut down operations.
The puts some hurdles in front of the community-driven CM that can't be jumped while holding on to the legacy name and structure. Servers and infrastructure are going to soon disappear, nobody is at the helm to direct the way forward and the very name Cyanogen itself is available to the right bidder. CyanogenMod depended on Cyanogen, Inc. A void at the very top isn't going to work.
However, CM has always been more than the name and more than the infrastructure. CM has been a success based on the spirit, ingenuity and effort of its individual contributors – back when it was Kondik in his home, to the now thousands of contributors past and present.
But the ideas behind CM aren't dead. The latest version has been released and updated to the current Android Security Bulletin patches, and mountains of source code are in the process of being forked into something new — the Lineage Android Distribution.

Lineage Android will use everything that CM has made to build a better grassroots alternative to the software from phone manufacturers. Even more important than the code and assorted software eight years of CM has built is the spirit of people who want to make something different and better. And it lives on under a new name with a new future.
Seeing CM say goodbye is hard. They've been here in one way or another since the beginning and we've watched them reach both the highs and lows that accompany any long journey. They embody the spirit of what Android is once you strip away the dollar signs and corporations and make it about us. The users, the builders, the dreamers. We are CM. We're losing a small part of ourselves today.
But we can look forward to the future with the Linage project, and do everything we can to keep those dreams and that spirit alive. To everyone involved, We wish you the best. Let us know how we can help.

CyanogenMod is evolving into LineageOS, Gerrit now up for developers




Yesterday, LineageOS Gerrit went online to accept contributions to LineageOS, the software that this group is hoping that will evolve from CyanogenMod. It looks like Cyanogen – the corporate entity and brand name – will continue on to use the related name as a separate Android fork, but it looks like we will be waking up to news of LineageOS soon.


We can call it LineageOS, Lineage OS, or maybe just plain Lineage – but the fact of the matter is that developers are now hard at work to make the next version of CyanogenMod into Lineage. The LineageOS Gerrit is a system which allows developers to contribute to the code of Lineage.
Gerrit is very much like the popular GitHub for developers of code. The reviews and approvals of code are done on a per-commit basis, again pretty much like GitHub. The big difference is that Gerrit allows for more complex rules in the approval and review process, which makes the process very much better for Android developers specifically.
The developer community for Lineage is alive and kicking, and hopefully they will get better traction with Gerrit now online. This means that current CyanogenMod will at least allow Lineage OS to get a running start to its anticipated life.

Lineage OS official builds coming this weekend, data migration builds available for CM users


CyanogenMod has long been the most popular custom ROM, covering a wide array of devices from numerous manufacturers. But after the breakup of Cyanogen Inc, and the subsequent end of the company's support of CM, LineageOS was formed as a continuation of the project. Now LineageOS is preparing to offer official builds for over eighty devices.
A new blog post on the LineageOS site has announced that builds for "Marshmallow and Nougat capable devices" (likely meaning devices that received official CM13 and CM14.1 builds) will start this weekend. LineageOS release candidates will be released every week by default, and are signed with a private key for authentication and signature control.
In contrast to CyanogenMod, LineageOS will not allow root by default. Should you want root, an optional flashable zip will be provided by the project that will root the system, and you will only need to flash it once. If you're compiling the ROM yourself, you can use a switch to include root.
Switching ROMs can often be a pain, forcing you to lose all your app data and settings. To help alleviate this problem, LineageOS will offer experimental data migration builds along with weekly release candidates for the next two months. These builds can be flashed on top of existing CM 13 or CM 14.1 installations, keeping all user data intact. Once you are running the data migration build, you can freely switch to normal LineageOS builds.
It's a good idea to start custom ROMs with a clean slate, but if you really don't want to set everything up again, the migration builds are very handy. Keep an eye out on the LineageOS downloads page for builds this weekend.

LineageOS Gains Popularity Among OnePlus One Owners





LineageOS is gaining a lot of popularity among OnePlus One owners, latest data shows. After Cyanogen Inc announced the end of CyanogenMod in December, CyanogenMod branched out to become LineageOS and continue evolving as an open-source Android-based custom ROM. Earlier this month the first LineageOS custom ROMs started becoming available for a number of Android devices, and developers have recently shared a list detailing usage statistics. According to the data, LineageOS is extremely popular among OnePlus One owners, and the largest number of downloads has been attributed to India.
One of the reasons why Google’s Nexus smartphones have been held in high regard by Android users was the fact that they were very easy to modify with custom ROMs. However, now that Google has discontinued the Nexus series in favor of the Google Pixel lineup, custom ROM enthusiasts will eventually have to find another smartphone to fill Nexus’ shoes. Luckily, with the release of LineageOS, we can now get a glimpse at what smartphones have remained the most popular among custom ROM enthusiasts, and the most popular device appears to be the OnePlus One. According to the data shared by LineageOS, a total of 14,061 OnePlus One devices codenamed “bacon” have enjoyed the LineageOS experience so far. The second most popular smartphone is the Xiaomi Mi 5 codenamed “gemini,” followed by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, also known as “kenzo.” With that being said, one could argue that the reason why the OnePlus One seems to be the device of choice for a large part of LineageOS users is because the smartphone is no longer officially supported and runs Android Marshmallow as opposed to the latest version of Google’s operating system. On the other hand, it’s also worth noting that the OnePlus 3 is the fourth most popular device among LineageOS users despite receiving the official Android 7.0 Nougat update earlier this year. This could indicate that OnePlus may become the brand of choice for custom ROM enthusiasts following the retirement of the Nexus series.

Furthermore, the latest data shows that LineageOS is enjoying a significant following in India where it has been downloaded more than 9,000 times. China is second with 8,694 downloads, and the third spot is occupied by the United States with 6,807 downloads to date. LineageOS has registered a total of 130,488 active installs at the time of this writing, and that number continues to grow steadily. Feel free to follow the source link for a complete list of smartphones and regions beyond the top 15 listed below.

LineageOS support rolls out to 15 more devices, new quick settings tiles added







3





Three weeks ago, LineageOS hit one million users. The community-driven ROM has proven popular since rose from CyanogenMod’s ashes last year, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down: it’s now rolling out to an additional 15 devices, along with some new features.
ftware. Easil...





To begin with, the LineageOS team have added a handful of extra quick settings tiles in the latest update. The quick settings area gives users easy access to some of the more commonly used Android options and these now include buttons for USB tethering, ADB over network, Ambient Display and more.

Further, there’s a new gallery app which simplifies the navigation between the timeline, videos and albums sections, and enables fullscreen video playback. Plus, the Recorder app has also been updated with a new animation and floating button.

Here’s the complete list of newly compatible phones:

  • Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 (n2awifi)
  • AT&T LG G3 (d850), updated from CM 13
  • Verizon LG G3 (vs985), updated from CM 13
  • ZUK Z1 (ham), updated from CM 13
  • International Samsung Galaxy S4 (jfltexx), updated from CM 13
  • Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 (jfltevzw), updated from CM 13
  • International LG G5 (h850)
  • T-Mobile LG V20 (h91
  • LeEco Le 2 (s2)
  • YU Yuphoria (lettuce)
  • YU Yureka (tomato)
  • Lenovo Vibe K5/K5 Plus (A6020)
  • GSM LTE Samsung Galaxy Note II (t0lte)
  • SK Telecom Samsung Galaxy Note II (t0lteskt)
  • Korea Samsung Galaxy Note II (t0ltektt)

It’s great to LineageOS quickly fill the CyanogenMod void with such a steady stream of supported devices coming every few weeks. To find out what else is going on with the project, visit the official LineageOS Android Distribution site.
