The CyanogenMod team (that's the open source, community-driven ROM project) has announced some new additions to its supported smartphones, meaning a number of new phones from the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, and more are seeing active development of compatible CyanogenMod ROMs. Of particular note are phones from some lesser-known names such as Smarten and WileyFox, and Huawei, whose team has made some direct contributions to CyanogenMod development for several devices. Here's the full breakdown of newly supported devices from each manufacturer:
- Huawei - Honor 4, Honor 4x, Ascend Mate 2, Snapto
- Motorola - Moto E 2015, Moto G 2015
- Xiaomi - Mi3w, Mi4
- Smartfen - AndroMax Q
- WileyFox - Storm, Swift
- Oppo - R7, R7Plus, R5Plus
- Samsung - S5 Duos, Galaxy S5 (Japan and China variants)
- HTC - M8 Dual SIM
- LG - G3 (Korean variant)
It clearly takes a lot of work by the community to maintain CyanogenMod support across such a wide range of devices, and it's great to see these added to the list. If you own one of the above smartphones, or plan on picking one up, you should start seeing CyanogenMod ROMs available going forward.
