With all the Google acquisition news today, I didn’t think anything could be “just” as exciting. The head honcho of CyanogenMod, Steve, has just added Samsung Mobile as a job on his Facebook account. He later confirmed his new job in the comments and affirmed to everyone that this new job has nothing to do with CyanogenMod. Whatever he is doing at Samsung, has to be a good thing. After all, they did send the CyanogenMod team a Galaxy S II to fiddle with. Samsung won the hearts of Android enthusiast everywhere with that nice gesture, perhaps even Steve. CyanogenMod is on almost 30 different devices ranging from HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung. Downloads have already exceeded the 500k mark. Quite a feat for an ASOP build of Android. I want to take this moment to say Congrats from Gadgetu. Keep up the good work man!
The CyanogenMod community is one of the most active and respected communities in the Android world. They are known for creating custom ROMs that bring the latest version of Android to older devices, as well as adding new features and customizations that are not available on the stock version of Android.
Recently, it was announced that the founder and lead developer of the CyanogenMod project, Steve Kondik (also known as Cyanogen), has joined Samsung Mobile. He will be working with the team to improve the software experience on Samsung devices and bring new features to Samsung users.
This is great news for Samsung users who have been looking for a more customizable and feature-rich software experience. CyanogenMod has always been a popular choice for users who want to customize their Android devices, and now with Cyanogen working directly with Samsung, we can expect even more exciting features and customizations to be added to Samsung devices.
Cyanogen himself has stated that he is excited to work with Samsung and that he believes that Samsung is committed to providing the best possible experience to its users. He also stated that he will continue to work on CyanogenMod in his spare time, so we can expect the CyanogenMod community to continue to grow and improve.
Overall, this is great news for Android users who are looking for a more customizable and feature-rich experience on their Samsung devices. With Cyanogen now working with Samsung, we can expect even more exciting features and customizations to be added to Samsung devices in the future.
Sound off in the comments. What do you guys think this means for Samsung?
