Last Week in CyanogenMod

Week Ending: April 26, 2014

“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.

As the team works toward the preparations for M6, its time for another wrap up.

Gerrit reviews

A quick stroll through our recent items merged in to CM 11 mainline:

* Theme Engine – Improve performance and support for Legacy themes

* Trebuchet – Hide Apps

* Trebuchet – Hide app labels

* Quick Settings – Make it possible to show smaller QS Tiles

* Translations – Crowdin import

* JF/D2 platform – Fix all the APN & Data issues, all blockers for M6 should be resolved

* Bluetooth – Bluedroid updates.

 * MultiSim – additional fixes and layout changes

* Recovery – Resolve custom key mappings

* Phone/Dialer – Landscape support (for docks)

* Dialer – Support for paid Open CNAM accounts (CallerID)

* WhisperPush – #holoyolo

* Security Fix – Fix Memory Corruption Bug with long app names

* cLock – Display date range for multi-day or all-day appointments

* APN Updates

As we move forward with the M6 release date approaching, we will be squashing any show-stopper bugs that are remaining.

Known show-stopper

* Disconnecting BT A2dp may result incorrect audio router, requires toggling BT on/off to fix (must fix for M6)

* Know something else that should be elevated in status? Let me know in the comments

Upcoming devices

Our maintainers are working on all of the new flagships, including the new HTC One, S5, Note 3 Exynos and the Oppo Find 7a. More immediately, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 Wifi (mondrianwifi) and Xperia SP (huashan) are near ready for nightly support. We’ll do a post on our G+ account when these nightlies kick off officially.

Some Housekeeping

As Cyanogen Inc. continues to grow, it has become necessary to split blog posts to more readily describe what news updates affect each project. I will still be managing the updates for both avenues, but you will soon be seeing a separate blog for the company and its ventures. This should keep a clear distinction of which points overlap and which points apply specifically to the CyanogenMod Project.

Both projects are also seeing an increased need to keep track of regressions more thoroughly. There will be some policy changes regarding JIRA and bug reports to help assist that process. We’ll do a separate post when those changes are ready to deploy.

Got a suggestion for a topic you’d like to see in the next round-up? Let us know in the comments below. All device/port requests will be ignored.

    Who is the maintainer for Galaxy note 3 exynos?

  • Venâncio Ferreira

    Im using Cyanogen for almost 3 years now, with my old smartphone and now with Galaxy Nexus..
    I never saw the Nightly’s to be unusable for so long(almost a month).

    I don’t understand why Cyanogen simple don’t revert the Theme Manager until its fixed.

  • Edward Vera Jr.

    Where is it? :( I’m on s4 its been 3 months

  • Siddharth Moghe

    Any update on the M6 builds ??

  • Siddharth Moghe

    I’ve been running the M4 build ever since the m5 gave me problems but now I see that the gallery refuses to show certsin images . images sent on WhatsApp are created in a sep folder as of now this isn’t been shown. Last week it was Instagram…sometimes its the movies …

  • Demitri Baroutsos

    Latest nightly seems to work much better with the Google Camera app – no jumping around when trying to create panorama/sphere photos.

  • Renan Carneiro

    No problems here on M6

  • Daniel Khong

    CM11 is excellent. However I’m having the same issues as you are. I’ll be reverting back to Snapshot M5 for stability issues

  • Joe

    For me M6 isnt working properly (I9300). It always freezes and then in a couple of minutes it is stated that trebuchet was terminated. I formated cache and dalvik cache after upgrading from M5.

    Edit:
    Sorry wrong topic. Should be posted in the M6 thread.

  • Christian Ide

    Obviously the patch didn’t make it to the milestone release :-( M6 is nearly unusable on Maguro. The UI freezes and restarts about each and every use… I already did a full data wipe with no change.

  • Christian Ide

    On the other hand… this build runs really smooth… Maybe I can live with the UI crashes for a while ;-)
