The CyanogenMod team released the RC1 version of CM9 just before Google I/O started. A couple of weeks later, RC2 was launched, and now it seems that CyanogenMod 9 stable is trickling out for... some devices. Well, truth be told, they’ve only released it for the Galaxy Nexus so far, which may be why the team hasn’t made an official post about it yet. I’m sure that once at leas...

Sony has been one of the more supportive companies when it comes to sending its own code back to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), and for this reason it has... been a lot easier for custom ROM makers like the CyanogenMod team to port the latest version of Android to the latest Sony devices. This is why we’re now getting an alpha version of CM10 for all...

Although the eager hackers from XDA developers have already launched a Jelly Bean port for the Google / HTC Nexus One, the people behind CyanogenMod have recently announced that the first Nexus... smartphone ever will not be officially compatible with Cyanogen versions beyond 7.x (Gingerbread).

Unfortunately, there are also a bunch of other smartphones that won’t be getting official suppo...

Just 3 weeks ago the CyanogenMod team launched the CM9 RC1 version, a day before Google I/O where Google announced the new version of Android, Jelly Bean. “RC”... means Release Candidate, which is a way of saying that as far as they know the bugs have been fixed (so it’s not in beta anymore), but it’s not the “final” version yet, because there ma...

Over the weekend, we’ve reported about leading CyanogenMod developer Ricardo Cerqueira, who has been teasing CM10 on a LG Optimus 4X HD on video. According to Cerqueira, the purpose of the... sneak preview was to show that the development effort is covering many different devices and not only those in the Nexus family, and that “hardware integration is progressing nicely”.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is barely a few weeks old and we are already seeing a lot of encouraging signs from the developer community, although manufacturers have been far less forthcoming in announcing... their plans for JB.

Of course, when you say developer community, the first name that comes to mind is CyanogenMod. The CM team is already hard at work preparing the new CM10 (CyanogenMod’s version of...

It’s a good thing CM9 reached the Release Candidate (almost final) stage in time before Jelly Bean got released, because it looks like the CyanogenMod team won’t be able to merge... Jelly Bean that easily. The whole merger will consist of cherrypicking CM9 code when merging it with Jelly Bean to create CM10. Then they’ll work on fixing any possible conflicts and bugs

A few weeks ago we saw some interesting stock Android code optimization, done by the Linaro team, an organization that works on optimization software for the ARM architecture (Linux, ARM, etc).... Their optimization improved Android’s browser performance in Sunspider by 30%, which is a healthy improvement, and they also improved CPU performance for 3D tasks by up to 100% in certain scenarios...
