Last night Steve Kondik (Cyanogen) and Jef Oliver from the CyanogenMod team broke the news that the popular custom firmware has reached 1 million unique installs. CM, which is by far the leading multi-device custom ROM for Android phones, is officially supported on 56 Android devices, with many more available via unofficial or nightly builds.
Interestingly, almost half of the CM installations are of unofficial or "KANGed" builds, although that's likely skewed by official-unofficial self-KANG builds by developers maintaining not-yet-supported phones like the HTC Sensation and EVO 3D. Top devices include the HTC Desire and Motorola DEFY, with over 80,000 and 58,000 installs respectively.
Congrats to the CM team in reaching this huge milestone. With more than a few Android owners eagerly awaiting the ICS-based CM9 in the months ahead, that number is sure to increase in 2012.
