CyanogenMod was the biggest, most widely used custom Android ROM. Now, it has been discontinued, due in part to internal conflicts within Cyanogen Inc. Don't worry, though: A new fork of CyanogenMod called Lineage OS is taking up the mantle, and it will keep most of what you loved about CyanogenMod.


The practice of installing modified versions of the Google Android operating system on other smartphones is about to become mainstream. CyanogenMod, the people behind one of the custom ROMs (as these versions of the phone firmware are called), have just announced that they have received $7 million in funding to establish a new company Cyanogen Inc. With the substantial cash injection, they plan to make their software available to a wider audience beyond their current tech-savvy users.


Android: CyanogenMod's built-in music player is much better than the stock Android player, and now it's available for all devices at Google Play, whether your device is rooted or not. This version comes packed with added features, including voice search, automatic artist and album art image fetching, gapless playback, homescreen and lockscreen widgets, and the ability to pin your favourite tunes to your homescreen.

If you're an early adopter of Android feeling left in the cold with your phone stuck on a 1.6 build, the hacker community offers an alternative — bust your warranty wide open and install CyanogenMod 5.07, a nearly complete 2.1 upgrade.
