We’ve been sifting through all the wonderful entries to the Sweater Selfie Showdown contest and before we announce the winners we just want to say thank you for the laughs, smiles, and itches we’ve endured this past week. Your sweaters have been amazing and we’re happy to see the wintry spirit is alive and well.
With that said, here we go!
Alberto is our first winner, who obtained the most +1’s, Likes, and Retweets. His full holiday get-up certainly brought the crowds and for that we’re giving him a CyanogenMod Edition OPPO N1! Congrats Alberto!
Our next two winners were chosen by our sweater connoisseurs. It was a difficult process selecting two people from all the amazing submissions, but we’re excited to announce our two choices:
It has been nearly a month since the last M build of CM11 rolled out, perfect timing to kickoff builds for the first weekend in 2014!
CM11 M2 has been queued up for over 65 devices and our bots are hard at work compiling. We’ve been working on bugs, device bringup, porting over features, and working on new features – all included in these builds.
It’s that time of year again: hot cocoa in your favorite mug, piles of blankets appearing from under the bed, and new winter tires to stay on the road. But one tradition keeps everyone grimacing smiling – ugly, itchy, hilarious holiday sweaters!
Ugly sweaters are a staple of the cold months and we want to see yours! While we’re not sure you really need any encouragement, 3 lucky sweater wearers will score a brand-new OPPO N1 smartphone to take more terrible sweater selfies. 1 winner will be chosen based on total likes, +1’s, and retweets he or she receives, while the other two will be chosen by our in-house sweater connoisseurs.
Grab the best (or worst) ugly sweater you can find, take a picture of yourself wearing it and tag @cyanogenmod and @oppo in your post along with the hashtag #sweaterselfieshowdown. Then email us at [email protected] with …
It is Christmas Eve, and the official launch of the first ever phone to ship with CyanogenMod! The device is available now via OppoStyle and select re-sellers.
The CM Edition Oppo N1 is a milestone for us, and this launch is no minor achievement – it is the culmination of over fours years of work by CM contributors and developers around the world.
We are going one step further. In addition to releasing the factory images – allowing N1 owners a safe return from their hacking hijinks – we are making available the accompanying source for not only the shipping 10.2 codebase, but the latest and greatest CM 11 code.
The 10.2 source code is split into two repositories, kernel and N1 device. To build against CM 11 code, you will also need the apq8064-common device. We are pushing up the code to make these trees complete – allowing …
The last year has been a wild ride for us at CyanogenMod. We took the big leap, and decided that it was time to turn our part-time hobby into a full-time company by forming Cyanogen Inc. with our partners at Benchmark and Redpoint Ventures by way of a Series A round in April. Since then, many new doors have opened up, and things that once seemed impossible for us as solely an open-source community are becoming reality.
Our goal for starting the company has always been to create the best possible mobile experience, and we believe that you should have the freedom to get that experience on any hardware you choose. Everyone contributing to the project is also an end user, and this is a really powerful idea.There is no way for an isolated product planning team to come up with every off-the-wall idea unless they have unearthed it via extensive market research. The CM …
In July, Koush announced that CyanogenMod would be seeing integrated, system-wide secure messaging integration with compatibility with TextSecure. For those unfamiliar, TextSecure is an open-source cross-platform (iOS and Android) client that encrypts your SMS messages both locally, and over the air when sending to other TextSecure users. The application is maintained by Open WhisperSystems, and lead engineer Moxie Marlinspike.
Moxie is a veteran of open source software, cryptography and good encryption practices, and a privacy advocate. To learn more about him and his accomplishments check out his personal site and Wikipedia page. He’s also spent time as a speaker at DEFCON on multiple occasions.
Moxie has been the lead engineer on the CyanogenMod implementation of TextSecure, making sure the CM version is both secure and compatible with his existing services. Unique to the CM implementation is our SMS middleware functionality. This is …
