Companion application for the CyanogenMod. Following this process will provide your device with the latest version of CyanogenMod, an Android OS distribution made for you, the users.
Development of the CyanogenMod started in 2009, after Steve Kondik aka Cyanogen took over the firmware project run by a coder calling himself JesusFreke. The distribution quickly grew in popularity, attracting hundreds of contributions from established open source projects.
CyanogenMod officially became a company back in September 2013, after receiving $7 million in series A funding.
To date, CyanogenMod had been installed more than 7.5 million times. Quite often, it offers the only chance to upgrade the OS on older devices that are no longer supported by their manufacturers.
Some of the distribution features that improve Google’s mobile OS include native theming support, FLAC audio codec support, a built-in OpenVPN client, extended application permission management, support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB tethering, and CPU overclocking.
