    Can’t believe they would support Mediatek. I guess it is beneficial to Asian countries though. http://www.xda-developers.com/android/have-you-paid-your-linux-kernel-source-license-fee/

    Not a good sign. Wonder if delays in one plus due to CM was a reason? Oh boy, one from htc, now that is a successful company. What a joke.

    • Phantom

      Just because a company is not succesful any more. HTC was very successful before iOs / Android. Particularly during the old Windows phones. Sony has lost money for 6 years now. Would you call them a joke? What about Nintendo?

    • The joke is your post, right?

      A poor vehicle for good ideas does not make those ideas any less good. HTC may be performing poorly as a company right now, but they’ve still managed to create one of the most highly-rated devices and OEM “skins” in the ecosystem.

    Now just release the one plus on every carrier

  • I’m still shocked Droid-life hasn’t made one mention of the Heads Up feature CM found buried inside AOSP code and is now enabled in CM roms. In my opinion it’s way better than Hover

  • Jason Purp

    It’s amazing how a legitimate company has been made from what started out as a simple ROM for Android over on XDA (or whatever other site the first CM ROM was originally posted on). A ROM that was simply stock Android with some custom tweaks.

    I don’t mean “amazing” sarcastically either

    • True it is amazing.

      • KleenDroid

        I agree… Amazing

      I support this. they are getting ready for the big show and i hope they launch in the US well. Next step really is a buy out. maybe Google snatch them up to offer Cyanogen Mod Editions of popular phones…

        The Android Silver program is actually Google shipping flagships with CyanogenMod O.o

    It would be a really good idea for CM to work with Vik Natarajan to get CM on Mediatek devices as that would open up Asia for them which could be huge.
