Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Version Certified by Google, Ships December 24

You can talk rounds of funding all you want, but to tech enthusiasts, seeing Cyanogen Inc gain Google’s approval on their version of the Oppo N1 that runs CM might be the bigger deal. And that’s exactly what happened yesterday. The Oppo N1 CyanogenMod version is now Google CTS-certified, which means when you buy one, it’ll ship with Google’s suite of apps like  Google Play, Gmail, Google Maps, etc. 

While those apps packages are readily available in ROM forums, this is all about being 100% legit. For Cyanogen, that’s a major win, which if we want to keep talking about funding and making it to the top, is a crucial step.

We mentioned this news yesterday in our post about Cyanogen’s new round of funding, but wanted to make sure everyone saw it.

The Oppo N1 with CyanogenMod ships on X-mas Eve, December 24.

    I havent looked at the bands yet, but I dont suppose I’ll be able to get this on Big Red?

  • martyjones100

    And this, my friends, is how free market capitalism works!

  • Robert Macri

    Why is this surprising? CM is no different then touchwiz… I don’t think google has a problem with skins as long as they follow there rules.

  • Tim

    Get rid of chinese companies just sayin

  • chris kilps

    is it cdma or gsm, or both? also does it susport LTE

    • Dominick White

      From the reviews I have seen supports gsm network, and no lte.. But does support hspa +

      • chris kilps

        so budget phone then

        • Dominick White

          I wouldnt say that, but the No lte is a major deal breaker and What makes it worse is the supposed retail price of 599

  • Trent Russell

    it will all come down to price….but considering the specs i expect it to fall well above the N5

    • Ej McCarty

      Definitely will be much higher. As their first device they don’t have the money to sell this phone and not make a profit

      • Boblank84

        this is not at all oppos first device.

        • Ej McCarty

          With cm it is.

    • Dominick White

      Price is 599 I believe

  • palomosan

    Great news for the CM team, just wondering about price and if it would unlocked.

    • Adrynalyne

      One would think so.

      • Ej McCarty

        So I could flash aokp on it haha. That would be defeating the purpose of buying the device I guess.

        • Adrynalyne

          I would put pure AOSP on it. Not a fan of either of those camps.

    • sc0rch3d

      did i miss a CM newsflash…who is Ollie?

      • Ej McCarty

        I was wondering the same thing

    • Dominick White


  • Allen George

    I think the coolest and most important point here is that GOOGLE approved of CM.

    • panicswhenubered

      I guess as long as CM keeps the Play Store and Google advertising services intact, they’re doing Google a favor by building and maintaining the OS. Pretty awesome!

    • Adrynalyne

      Possibly only on this device though?

      • nate

        For now. Hopefully the days of flashing gapps packages will be over soon.

        • Adrynalyne

          It won’t be, not for versions distributed on the net.

      • StuckOnVerizonForever

        Oppo> everyone else

        • Adrynalyne

          What kind of nonsense comment is that?

  • droidify

    For those who would like a blinding flash while taking a selfy.

    • Mr E

      Lol. This thing will make a sweet flashlight too 🙂

      • Adrynalyne

        For those times when you need to see your own face in the mirror…in the dark…
