CyanogenMod grows up

I'll let you read the article for the details, but in a nutshell:
  • CyanogenMod is now a legitimate business (CyanogenMod, Inc.) with about $7 million in venture capital funding.
  • In the very near future, you'll be able to install CyanogenMod using an app on the Play store. That's it.

CyanogenMod replaces your phone’s build of Android with a stock version of software, along with additional personalization and security features. It helps ensure you’ll receive OS updates at a much faster rate, since they’ll come directly from CyanogenMod – you don’t have to wait for your phone’s carrier and manufacturer to approve them, which often takes months.

Right now there are no plans to charge CyanogenMod users. And the company says that users can expect more features like its new account and personalization options in the future. CyanogenMod plans to continue using Android as its baseline, but wants to increase security even further and strip it of all its bloatware. The ultimate goal is to push past BlackBerry and Windows Phone to make CyanogenMod the third most popular mobile operating system, alongside Android and iOS. That’s a lofty goal, but the app is a good way to start.

And it will be interesting to see what, if anything, Google has to say about this. Essentially it’s no different than what Amazon does for its Kindle tablets: Uses the open-sourced version of Android without Google’s core services and apps. Still, you never know.

at the Big Android BBQ last year I got to kick it with many CM members - Some were good friends of mine before the BBQ.

Glad to see them grow.
