From a lot of these comments not many people have actually experienced CM. CM stable release is just that. Stable. CM10.1 brings JB4.2.2 to countless devices which have been forgotten by their manufacturer.

What will be even more exciting is the soon to be announced CM installer which will bring the joy of CM to so many more people who are not tech savvy enough to go through the process of flashing a custom ROM.

One click flash of CM will change the face of Android for ever.

Also, apparently a small Chinese manufacturer known as FAEA mobile are also working with CM inc. to produce a phone with official OEM support. They currently make the cheapest FHD 5 inch phone with NFC called the F2S. This will bring CM to the world of MKT based devices which will allow those who cannot afford high end devices the ability to enjoy the CM experience.

I like CyanogenMod better than TouchWiz. It's simply smoother and better. (:

The "homebrew" modding community is allowing those large corporations to save vast amounts of money in R&D.

The full (real world) test-data and the "tips" on how to implement a novelty are just handed to them, they gain knowledge (through the forums) of what the test group likes (or dislikes) and no longer have to put their teams working from zero.

But still, it is against their profits to allow the world to know that.
They are the ones that cash-in whilst the community is used to do the hard-lifting work.

Locking their devices is their way of ensuring that things stay this way.

Besides Oppo, HTC is the only other company that openly supports allowing their phones to be rooted. The more customizable friendly your phone is the driving force behind new features in the Os'. Apple iphone users in the jailbreak community have known this since the first iphone came out.

Look at the latest features in the new ios 7 - most of those features have been available to jailbroken iphone users via Cydia for years.

This is where the innovation is coming from right now.

Rooted, unlocked and all the good stuff from cyanogenmod. With kernel which support overclocking? CWM or TWRP on board?
This is really a good news in android world.

First of all, the "Google Edition" (even for the phones who have such thing) still isn't available to everyone (all markets and/or owners that bought the non-Google Edition).

Even more importantly, something you would already know if you tried a Nexus device or a Google Edition, is that CyanogenMod is much more than just "AOSP Android".

It does look alike "AOSP Android" but it has many features and extension unique to CyanogenMod. That is why many people with Nexus phones, which do have proper support (updates) from Google, end up flashing CyanogenMod to their phones.
-- It's those extra features that are both smart and advanced whilst still keeping the look and feel like it was just plain AOSP.

> In reply to Ijazz @ 2013-09-21 09:00 from U{J$ - click to readWhat your comment shows is an abysmal lack of experience with CyanogenMod on devices which are actually *officially* supported.

Sure, there is the odd bug once in a while, the occasional bad build and some features (such as HDMI) which will never work (due to licensing).

Still, you get access to the latest version of Android (many times quite far beyond the last stock version) and you get a pretty stable system (even if it is labelled as nightly).

There are exceptions (devices too new to be stable or without proper drivers), but I wouldn't take the exception and make it the rule.

cyanogenmod..... nah not interested. If you want a rom which is perfect on all aspect use stock rom. Root it to debloat it.
Like a previous comment cyanogen is always nightly. When dailer works Contact crashes.when both works camera crashes
Rename it to "Crashogenmod"

Want an android experience use Nexus devices.

Just do the math...

CM is the hope for those 100´s carriers and manufacturers forget to update.

Cyanogenmod is now obsolete, as google is releasing the Google Edition which is a direct code to devices. So, really cyanogenmod is old technology now. Obsolete.

FYI, MIUI is based on CyanogenMod.

so far my experience with Cyanogenmod is they can never make a perfect rom, newbies should never use it.
