Last Week in CyanogenMod

Week Ending: October 26, 2013

“This Week in CyanogenMod” is an ongoing feature that aims to serve as a one-stop shop for weekly updates. Topics discussed are culled from our social media accounts, gerrit, status updates and general thoughts.

DroidCon UK

Shane and I just wrapped up the DroidCon weekend and have to say we had a blast! The event offered a unique opportunity for us to communicate with users, device manufactures, network operators, and application developers all in one place, giving a great insight to the larger Android community outside of the custom OS space. We were treated great, welcomed with open arms (even if we didn’t fit into the traditional ‘app developer’ mold) and being asked to give the Keynote was an honor (we’ll link the video when it becomes available). Shout-out to the organizers and sponsors for the event – looking forward to next year!

Intel SDP

Intel’s representatives sat with us for a quick chat at DroidCon and graciously gave us one of their Software Development Platforms! The special Galaxy Tab 3.0 went home with Shane and he will (hopefully) use it as a head-start on adding x86 support into CM. Watch this space for more in the future.

New devices

Last week saw the addition of 6 new devices: Moto X (3 variants) and the Sony Xperia SP went in on Monday and Tuesday saw the addition of two variants of the LG G2.

Iconia Tab A700 status update

The a700 jumped to 10.2 nightlies (previously only 10.1).

10.2 M1 Preparations

We’re gearing up for the initial ‘release’ of CM 10.2 and with that will come a code freeze in the near future (possibly even this coming week). Be sure to follow the G+ page (or Twitter) for updates when this takes effect.

Now that the dust from last week has been settled, we got back to what we do – code, releases, and devices.

10.1.3 Released

We pushed out the general release for CM 10.1.3, our last major release based on Android 4.2.2 code. The 10.1 will go into a perma-freeze, and we will shift focus to only working on 10.2+ code.

Big Android BBQ is coming

As October 10th approaches, we are getting excited for the BABBQ! We have talks and presentations, items for giveaways, and of course the CM sponsored party! This year’s BBQ is shaping up to be the biggest one yet!

New devices added

We welcomed a handful of devices this week and a couple of new maintainers. New devices this week include the Verizon HTC One (m7vzw), Galaxy S4 Mini Euro 3g (serrano3gxx), Galaxy Express AT&T (expressatt), and Exhilarate i577 (exhilarate). A hearty welcome to new maintainers something15525, Flyhalf205 and carsdriver as well!

Privacy Guard 2.0

Privacy Guard got an overhaul, tying into the AppOps capability Google sneaked into Android 4.3. This allows additional functionality to revoke different permissions – something many have been asking for since CM9. We’ve spotted a handful of additional patches to enhance AppOps on CAF, including  data and bluetooth controls, and a new ‘ask’ setting. It looks like Google is building out this functionality as some sort of Enterprise device management tool. Interesting stuff is likely to be expected for this in the future and we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop.

CM + OPPO

By now, you’ve likely heard that there will be a CM Edition of the Oppo N1, and Steve (cyanogen) was in Beijing for the announcement this week. We had a bit of fun showing off the phone, and OPPO responded in kind. We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us to get the device ready, but we are moving along steadily.

Installer Previews and beta testing

We started giving out access to the installer to various press outlets, and the responses have been great! Geek.com did a live hangout and demo and AndroidPolice got their hands on it as well! Even the community got in on the action

We’ve also started accepting people into a beta program to try the program out on their own. Koush has setup a post on G+ with the requirements and steps on how to apply. Check it out if you are interested in helping!

cLock Now in Play Store

One of the best parts of supporting the community is being able to showcase the talent and hard work of developers. Over the years, CM has been an awesome platform to get your work noticed, and cLock has been no exception. It’s primary developer David van Tonder (dvtonder) has put up his own version onto the Play Store. Of course he’ll continue to develop and support the CM version, but now your friends/family that don’t use CM can enjoy a bit of CM functionality!

Branching out social

To prevent our social media streams from being overrun we’ve split the Cyanogen Inc. and CyanogenMod community social accounts. You can add Cyanogen Inc. on Twitter, Facebook, and on Google+. The “CyanogenMod” accounts will continue to be used to present community centric information – the new accounts will focus on the business side, and this wrap-up will continue to provide a combination of the two.

It’s Friday the 13th – hope you aren’t superstitious.

Big Android BBQ Madness!

With general admission tickets ending this week was packed full of #babbq news. Up first, OPPO announced their contest to win a FREE trip to the Big Android BBQ. With your trip paid for you could enjoy the BBQ and party like crazy at the Official Party! We are excited to be the Official Sponsors of the Official Party – check out the snazzy flier!

Steve (cyanogen), Koush (koush) and Drew (utkanos) also did a hangout with the BABBQ team talking about CM and what’s next for the project. The recorded hangout is available for those that couldn’t watch live.

More Devices!

We announced a handful of devices this week, including the Xperia Z Ultra, HTC Droid DNA, LG Optimus G Pro (GSM), Motorola Atrix 2, and 3 variants of the LG Optimus G. What a week!

CM Account 

We began shipping CM Account in the nightly 10.2 builds this week, enabling secure find and wipe capabilities for your devices. We received a lot of requests to enable this for 10.1.3′s final release, so we investigating that and making sure there are no bugs we missed. We’ll likely end up including it for you 10.1.3 users as well.

Reddit AMA 

A while back, there was an Ask Me Anything (AMA) request for the CM folks. Next Wednesday, September 18th at 11:30am PST we will be following through on that request with Steve, Koush and myself taking part in an AMA. We’re even on the official /r/IAmA schedule! Make sure to come out and vote for the questions you want answered. Fair warning though, asking about device support is likely to be down-voted, so try to stay clear of that question ;)

Nemesis 

While Nemesis is multi-pronged, we gave a hint towards one of the upcoming features. Can you figure it out?

“The internet may blow up” 

That was the phrase Steve chose to use in the BABBQ hangout when asked about what we had planned for next. No spoilers here though, else Koush might hunt me down on one of his yachts. :)

September is here, its going to be a busy month for us and this week was just the start.

CM 10.1.3 RC2 

Continuing on the path to closing out the CM 10.1 code, we released our second release candidate this week. You can flash this on top of the RC1 without issues, just don’t try to flash it on top of 10.2 nightlies.

KitKat? 

Android 4.4′s name was announced, but that was all that was announced. Like most of you, we would also like to get to work the new Android version, but until that source code is made public, there isn’t anything for us to do but wait and eat some chocolate.

LG Optimus G Pro 

Ricardo (arcee) was kind enough to link up a custom recovery for this device, might come in handy for a few of you soon :)

HTC One Mini 

Adding to our ever growing device list, Negri Electronics stepped up to help out yet again, this time sending us the One Mini. Stay tuned for ‘codename: m4′ builds to be released. The Negri team has been great to work with and we appreciate their support of CM and the community.

Trebuchet Icon Support (round 2)

Adding on to the ‘theme icon pack’ support from last week, a patch is now on Gerrit to allow per-shortcut selection of icons. As of now, it is up for review, but should hit the nightlies soon.

When boot animations attack! 

The nightlies from 9/6 broke almost universally. This has been patched since.

Nemesis 

We haven’t forgotten, more is coming ;)

This week in CyanogenMod

Week Ending: June 28, 2013

“This Week in CyanogenMod” is an ongoing feature that aims to serve as a one-stop shop for weekly updates. Topics discussed are culled from our social media accounts, gerrit, status updates and general thoughts.

Happy Friday! This was a busy and exciting week for us; this round-up has a lot of ground to cover.

CM 10.1.0 Release

We pulled the trigger on the release, with builds of Android 4.2.2 based CM 10.1 now available on our servers. As a reminder to those upgrading from CM 10.0, this latest release is based on a newer version of Android and will require that you update your third party add-ons to be compatible, and for some of you, your radios and bootloaders as well. If you receive an assert failure or can’t sync your email accounts, you are likely in need of an update.

We are actively tracking the need for any point releases (ie 10.1.0.1) and will put them out on a device by device basis.

Homepage Redesign

With the help with the team at GlitchAgency, we launched the new look and feel for this website. Next on our makeover list – Get.cm. Keep an eye out for its new look, coming soon.

Big Android BBQ

For those of you in the States, CyanogenMod is sponsoring the big the Big Android BBQ and the tickets are now available! Come hang out with us this October!

With 10.1.0 out of the way we unveiled some of the features we have been working on.

Xperia Camera Features

With some hard work and fancy code, we enabled some of the more advanced features on the 2012/13 Xperia devices, including HDR and Sony’s image & video stabilization.

HDR Video Capture

The HTC One variants and the Xperia Z received the added benefit of HDR video recording!

Camera Quick Settings Tile

Nebkat joined all the camera fun and introduced our first Advanced Quick Settings tile, with the ability to access the camera viewfinder and take a picture directly from the Quick Settings panel!

Privacy Guard Merged

We merged the Privacy Guard (formerly Incognito App Mode) patches into the nightly builds, and the functionality is now open for wide-scale testing. If you find a bug, drop a mention in our G+ thread and thank you in advance for not reporting bugs for a nightly build on JIRA.

Trio of Status Reports

With the device roster for 10.1 being finalized, we received a lot of questions on missing devices. We put out a few brief updates for affected devices.

First, for Tegra 2 based devices, we will be discontinuing general releases moving forward.

Next up, we brought back nightlies for four of our HTC devices, after a short 3 month hiatus.

Finally, the Exynos family got its report card and we aren’t going to be giving up on you Exynos 4 users (eg. i9100, i9300) any time soon. There was also a silver lining for International S4 users (i9500) with the announcement that we have the device in hand and are hacking away – no ETA.

Koush’s Secret Feature

Last week we teased that Koush had something in the works, related to SMS and Messaging. This week Koush let the cat out of the bag, with the reveal of Secure Push/SMS messaging coming to CyanogenMod! Checkout the patches and source code!

CyanogenMod 10.1 – M2 Release

A little more than a month removed from our last M-release, the 10.1-M2 releases are now landing on our servers. These builds are based on Android 4.2.2.

We’ve expanded the release list to include quite a few new devices since the M1; the full list is further below.

With this release, we’d like to remind you all that while bug reports on nightlies will get summarily dismissed, we accept and encourage reports to be submitted against the M2 release. By identifying issues in the M-release, you can help to make the eventual ‘stable’ release that much better. Note that our bug tracker has relocated to jira.cyanogenmod.org. Additionally, if you report a bug but fail to attach a log (logcat or adb bugreport), your report will be considered invalid, and closed. Even if your device bursts into flames: no attached log means it didn’t happen.

Devices receiving an M release today are as follows:
Acer Iconia a700
Google Nexus S (crespo, crespo4g)
Google Nexus 7 (grouper, tilapia)
Google Galaxy Nexus (toro, toroplus, maguro)
Google Nexus 4 (mako)
Google Nexus 10 (manta)
Google Nexus Q (steelhead)
Hardkernel Odroid-U2
HTC One X (evita)
HTC Incredible 4G LTE (fireball)
HTC Evo 4G LTE (jewel)
HTC One S (ville)
LG Nitro HD (p930)
LG Optimus LTE (su640)
LG Spectrum (vs920)
Samsung Galaxy S (captivatemtd, galaxysbmtd, galaxysmtd, epicmtd)
Samsung Galaxy SII (i9100g, hercules, skyrocket)
Samsung Galaxy SIII (US variants d2att, d2cri, d2mtr, d2spr, d2tmo, d2vzw)
Samsung Note (quincytmo, quincyatt)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (p3100, p3110)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (p5100, p5110)

As per usual, the code has been tagged in our Github as ‘cm-10.1-M2’. Any device currently receiving 10.1 nightlies, but not listed above, will continue to get worked on until they are ready. This includes the Kindle Fire, Galaxy R and Motorola Devices added yesterday.

Happy Flashing,
The CyanogenMod Team
