CM Edition Oppo N1The "CyanogenMod Edition" Oppo N1 — the limited edition version with CM 10.2 out of the box — has passed Google's Android Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) and is scheduled to become available from Dec. 24. It's the first time a CyanogenMod-powered phone has passed Google's tests, which are designed to ensure device security and compatibility with apps in the Android ecosystem.

The news was shared on the CM-dev mailing list and on Twitter by manufacturer Oppo, which gave glimpse of the exclusive packaging, stickers and case included with the device. Writing on the CM-dev list, community lead Abhisek Devkota (better known as ciwrl) described it as "a major milestone for everyone in this project," adding "aside from root access, we were not forced to make any compromises in terms of features or functionality."

The CM Edition Oppo N1 isn't listed on the manufacturer's online store just yet, but the vanilla N1 recently launched in the U.S. and Europe for $599 and €449, so it's likely the CM version's price will fall somewhere around this level.

Not worth $599 for that phone (no LTE) and only compatible with ATT, I wonder who is going to be responsible for the warranty.

tidris says:

Right on. Even the most expensive version of the Nexus 5 is only $399.

How is it anything like that? CyanogenMOD is based on AOSP and is basically stock android with a few useful tweaks. This is more of a Nexus Experience than any other OEM provides.

Bwahahahaha says:

^ This... Not sure how it's anything like that at all. Some people need to learn to think before they speak

Well I can yell u right now cm mod is way better than any other but its still a skin as is sense and touchwiz. Pure android for me is all I want. For the record I'm not in no way saying its garbage I'm just stating the facts

Kayone73 says:

Not sure you understand the definition of 'skinned' android OS. CM is a highly customized version of stock vanilla Android

So does that mean it has the Google Play Store? Is it the same test?

Calma10 says:

yes, thats the Google compantability test, all the google apps will be on the phone. But no root out of the box. if you buy it, you will have to root it.
I wonder how much CM Inc. pay Google for the test.

TheMimic12 says:

This is a good first step. This means Google is not entirely opposed to certifying phones running cyanogenmod for proprietary Google apps. This could be good on getting the general public aware of what cyanogenmod is

The public will going to know about CM. It seems by the end of next year or early 2015. CM Inc is going to change brand name. The biggest question, Is Google going to keep realising to AOSP? it seems that Google is taking updating AOSP. CM Inc is also doing something similar, only releasing CM only apps.

SASenfield says:

Though CM takes it much farther than others, I'd assume Google would treat it much like any other skinned version of Android. For example, just as Samsung modifies how Android runs via Touchwiz, CM basically does the same.

MERCDROID says:

I think it's safe to say, Verizon wants nothing to do with this phone or Cyanogen Mod (the OS or the company).

I spent awhile in their forums the other day, wow what a train wreck. Not really the CM stuff because a lot of that was not posted, but the stock roms and updates make it look like 12 year olds are coding it...

s2weden2000 says:

it is not for you...so get something else

NoNexus says:

it is not fit for human consumption when you pass off "updates" that have the most basic of functions broken.

s2weden2000 says:

nothing is broken...

miknxn says:

I like that color scheme...not the phone!

Radios? In guessing att 3g tmo 2g
