CyanogenMod simply offers a bunch of tweaks and little customizations not found in vanilla Android. For example you can add your own favorite apps to the lock screen slider, or apply themes that change the look of the device. It really just gives more options to personalize the phone to your liking.

Re:What advantage does a CyanogenMod ROM have ? (0)

Cyanogenmod IS vanilla android. The only thing more vanilla than cyanogenmod would be what you find on the google nexus devices, but of course with those you don't have absolute control over the device like cyanogenmod gives you. Cyanogen is certainly more vanilla than the customized crapware you find on every other android device.

aXis100 (690904) | about 9 months ago | (#45316109)

CyanogenMod *is* Android.

Instead of being locked into a vendor android and their tweaks, it's an Open source Android release, with a lot of very cool features and improvements. It has a strong online community and sees regular updates, far beyond manufacturer support.

Indeed. My Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Maguro) last saw a manufacturer update early last year. CyanogenMod is pretty nearly as current as it can get.

TheSeatOfMyPants (2645007) | about 9 months ago | (#45314501)

That's sadly not remotely the case -- most popular or "nice" Android tablets and GSM phones do, but most inexpensive tablets or CDMA phones (even ones with a fully-supported GSM"twin") don't even have a port. That is to say: devices by a high-end company Samsung invariably do, but anything by one more like Coby is passed over as the developers reasonably/logically only work on things they own.

Re:Great! (1)

Anonymous Coward | about 9 months ago | (#45314857)

but anything by one more like Coby is passed over as the developers reasonably/logically only work on things they own.

Developer Christian Troy has ported an early build of CyanogenMod 10 to run on devices with Allwinner A10 processors, bringing Android 4.1 to dozens of tablets and a few other devices.
The Allwinner A10 processor is an inexpensive ARM Cortex-A8 single core processor that’s proven popular with budget Android device makers. It’s shown up in low cost tablets from Ainol, Eken, Coby, and others, and the Allwinner A10 is also the chip used in the MK802 Mini PC stick and a number of similar PC-on-a-stick devices.

any Android device imaginable? (2)

dutchwhizzman (817898) | about 9 months ago | (#45316235)

TFA claims "over 70 devices" but less than half of devices currently for sale from phone carriers or independent stores are supported by CM. There are vast numbers of Chinese tablets and phones that have no CM ported to them. In practice, "any Android device imaginable" boils down to "premium brand devices that have been abandoned by their vendors for major version updates". I like CM and it's spinoffs, it's very good for the ecosystem and it forces vendors to stay alert and keep supporting their hardware. However, claiming it has support for everything and the kitchen sink is just wrong and it may hurt it's credibility. Supporting over 70 devices is amazing, but it's not the over 1000 devices that are out there.

Re:any Android device imaginable? (2)

BrokenHalo (565198) | about 9 months ago | (#45316331)

... but less than half of devices currently for sale from phone carriers or independent stores are supported by CM.

Perhaps, but where CM shines is in its support for devices no longer being actively sold or supported, which even with brands like Samsung can happen only months after you've bought the phone.

Re:any Android device imaginable? (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 9 months ago | (#45320001)

Re:* crickets * (-1, Flamebait)

Security? ios? You're kidding, right? It's no more robust than anything else, and apple needs to compile their software before release too.

Re:* crickets * (2)

Shavano (2541114) | about 9 months ago | (#45314979)

Apple compiles their software before release because they can. iOS only supports 8 models of phone (aside from carrier versions), 5 iPod models, 5 iPad models and 2 iPad Minis. Compiling them all is a day's work.

Android is supported on hundreds of devices. Each needs a kernel compatible with the hardware, just like on iOS. Any one model of Android phone is the same amount of work to support as any one model of iPhone.

Despite that, Android initially gained ground on iPhone ever since release and at some stages has been significantly ahead of iPhones on features. Right now, I'd say they are very close to par, with Android having some things a little better than iOS and iOS having some things a little better.

Yeah, I suppose; I'm only an occasional iOS user. I pick up my wife's iPad maybe once a week. She has an iPhone but I only touch that to answer phone calls when she's in th shower. I was basing my (over)estimate on the number of devices that run ANY version of iOS. Though I think they call the system that runs on an AppleTV by that name too even though it's not perceptibly similar.

Version Numbers (5, Informative)

chill (34294) | about 9 months ago | (#45312773)

For the uninitiated...

Right now, CyanogenMod consists of three parallel and active major versions: CyanogenMod 7 is based on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), and CyanogenMod 10 is based on Android 4.1 (JB) and CyanogenMod 10.1 is based on Android 4.2; CM10.1-capable devices are being phased out of CM10.0 , but since thereâ(TM)s a large amount of devices still on the market that arenâ(TM)t capable of fully running Android 4.x, CyanogenMod 7 exists to support them.

That is from their "about" page, and now slightly out of date with the release of 10.2. That version is based off of Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean).

Re:Version Numbers (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 9 months ago | (#45314307)

People seriously need to come up with better versionings for their software damn it.
Hell, they may as well just name the major part the version that it was based off of plus the actual version update to the mod.
So for CM7 it'd be CM2.3.whateverRevision and CM10 would be CM4.1.whatever.
Having a separate naming scheme from a modification of something is retarded and only causes confusion when you are supporting multiples of said software as a community effort because support always ends up being dropped for older versions simply due to economies sake. Causing confusion is mean.
Having in brackets "only for 4.2" or "JB only" is stupid and wasteful when some numbers would easily solve that. It is even worse when you have a bit in the page that with "requirements: Android Alien Goo needed for this version" or something, that is the worst offender of all things.

Still, at least it isn't GPU names. Fuck me are those terrible naming systems.
What the hell is with those guys?

Re:Version Numbers (1)

Shavano (2541114) | about 9 months ago | (#45315017)

Correction. This is a milestone release, not what they call a stable release, which is their highest level. It pretty much means beta release, as opposed to what the call a stable release. It's supported on 70 devices, including my 3 year old phone.

Mike_Theory (2190120) | about 9 months ago | (#45313485)

-.- CyanogenMod is a fantastic alternative to people who want a stock android experience on devices that come themed out of the box (See: HTC Sense) or if you want to have more control over your device. CyanogenMod inherently allows for root access (though is not necessary for root) which allows for extra finctionality in some cases. Cyanognemod also allows users to toy with device parameter, as in being able to overclock the device CPU, change the processor governer (either for better responsiveness or better battery life) or to just change some things. (My favorite being making the "Genius button" on my HTC Glacier behave like a normal Search Button) It's also nice if your device is stuck on an older version (like 2.1 or 2.2) that is no longer supported by many apps

Re:ELi5: CyanogenMod (0)

Re:ELi5: CyanogenMod (1)

Greyfox (87712) | about 9 months ago | (#45314373)

Yep, and I've developed a clear preference for it. I find it to be significantly more responsive than the stock software on the phone. You can also actually delete all the crapware your provider likes to stick on there. I put my foot down on that after Sprint put a fucking Zynga Games app on my phone. I don't even want to accidentally start that thing up.

Re:ELi5: CyanogenMod (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 9 months ago | (#45316857)

It's great in many cases but also has some downsides, particularly with battery life and compatibility (eg gmail). I'd prefer a well running up to date stock Android version, but this is great for old phone versions that can't be upgraded.

Dad: Tablets and phones are like computers. Every so often they need to be updated to fix glitches, to run faster, and to run longer. Normally these updates come from the people that made them. But, sometimes the people that make the tablets and phones stop building and giving us these updates. So, what the Cyanogenmod team does is gives us the updates for tablets and phones built by all kinds of different companies, even older ones. In other words, it allows you, Jimmy, to play the latest balloon game that requires KitKat.

Because you could easily discover the same information elsewhere but are too lazy to do so. Next time, you have to acknowledge your laziness by starting off the commet with a "Dear lazyweb" then people will not mark you as a troll as its clear you just want the info and aren't trying to rile people up.

There are several things that they've improved over stock android such as:
+quiet hours ( times in the day where you don't want your phone to play a notification tone, or have a message light on),
+privacy guard ( you can set it so applications think they are getting your contact list, but its just an empty list or want your position, but the os tells them position isn't available)
+No crappy samsung/HTC/Motorola/LG modifications to android (ie touchwiz, sense, motoblur,etc)

But most people probably use it because its an update of android for their phone that wasn't provided by the manufacturer. I have a samsung galaxy S from 2010 that now works on android 4.3. The last Samsung/att provided update was to 2.3.

If you REALLY want to give the app your contact list, you can re-enable the permission so it can see it.

In both cases, my devices have better performance and features that were not available in their stock format. Personally I wouldn't buy an Android device unless I was sure that someone out there has already forged a clear path to install CyanogenMod, but if the Mozilla people can make a better alternative, I'll be more than happy to give that one a shot as well.

I kind of like having a phone that can act as a phone.

Was this problem on a Stable, Milestone, RC or on a Nightly? Nightlies are by definition experimental and have not been tested. Just compile and post. If you're not willing to have an occasionally nonworking phone, don't run nightlies. It's also possible that you were running the wrong version for you phone. In some cases it's possible to load and boot a version designed for a slightly different phone model with almost but not the same hardware and various kinds of chaos can ensue.

- Gadgets supporting Android, get an Android adapted to them by whoever makes them.

If you open up a terminal emulator and ping a valid IP adress, it'll probably work, which means that the internet isn't broken. The grey doubt icons are simply an indication that Google's location services aren't working with your phone.

I'm posting this from a Nexus 7 (the older model) that I purchased for less than $100. I installed Cyanogenmod, then an Archlinux chroot (with minimal pain, thanks to the Linux Deploy app), and right now I'm browsing Slashdot from inside Arch (midori browser) while pacman -Syu does its thing.

I also installed python, gcc, texlive and vim, so I have pretty much all I need to be productive. I use one of those keyboard cases with a gutter to stand the tablet, and an extermal bluetooth mouse (much more comfortable than using the screen as a touchpad). The keyboard is a bit cramped but not unusably so. I just tested myself with typeracer and did 53 wpm, which is about half my speed on a regular keyyboard.

For the first time since 1995, when my beloved Sharp PC-3100 (a clamshell, AA-powered MS-DOS palmtop computer) succumbed to a leaking alkaline cell) I have a usable development machine in my coat pocket.

CM - a way to extend short life of the devices (1)

postmortem (906676) | about 9 months ago | (#45318865)

Verizon and others would love you to upgrade your device so often. Usually if you want latest and greatest, that would be only way.

For example, device I bought in late 2011, came with Android 2.3 and had only one upgrade - to 4.0. Yet I'm still on the contract, and there were 4 Android releases.
Thanks to mods and CM, I got very stable version of Android 4.3, and I intend to keep my device for a while.
Thanks to Verizon and HTC, I got not much for my money.

This is one area where Apple excels, their device commonly have up to 3 yrs of updates.
