In what comes as great news for people considering smartphones from the Android One smartphone range, CyanogenMod, one of the world's most popular custom ROMs, is now available to be installed on the three Android One phones that were launched in India during September.
The news comes via XDA-Developers, who report that the ROM was developed by XDA Recognised Developer varun.chitre15. Given that there was talk about Android One getting root and custom recovery, there were expectations that a custom ROM was in the works.
According to the report, the ROM is quite stable and a great majority of its functions work properly. However, dual-SIM and Internet connectivity are still being worked on.
"The ROM is universal, and as such it works on every Android One device released to date. There is absolute no need to flash a different radio or some compatibility patches. Such an approach makes things much easier to maintain for developers and creates less confusion among users."
Yesterday, we reported that Cyanogen teamed up with Indian smartphone major, Micromax, to launch smartphones using the custom ROM later this year.
If you own a Spice Dream Uno, Karbonn Sparkle V or Micromax Canvas A1, head over to the CyanogenMod 11 for the Android One development thread at XDA to get started.
