If you have been using an Android device for quite sometime, you must have heard about CyanogenMod. CM, as it is popularly known in the community, is among the most popular AOSP based custom ROMs out there for Android devices with support for more than 50+ devices. It recently crossed the 5 million user base, and its team is among the most talented and respected in the Android community.
Beginning from today, the CyanogenMod team has started rolling out the stable version of CyanogenMod 10.1.0 (CM10.1) for all the supported devices in its repository. The stable version comes after months of bug-fixing, testing, adding new features and rolling out hundreds of nightly builds by the CyanogenMod team.
CyanogenMod is undoubtedly the most popular AOSP based custom ROM. However, due to its popularity, and the sheer number of devices that the team now supports, they have to think thousands of time before adding a new feature. While CyanogenMod was earlier known for its customization options, it is no longer the most customizable AOSP based custom ROM out there.
CyanogenMod is, without a doubt, the biggest and the most popular custom ROM available for majority of the Android devices out there. The custom ROM that initially started as a one-man project by Steve Kondik now includes hundreds, or perhaps, thousands of developers, and a user-base that is now 5 million users strong! Yes, CyanogenMod custom ROM now runs on 5 million Android devices across the world.
