Just yesterday, when we told you the developers behind CyanogenMod were thinking about releasing a root-only app store for Android, we mentioned that CyanogenMod has a unique user install base of around one million. Last night, that number became official.
Announced by Steve Kondik on Google+, this is a huge milestone for Android modding and the community behind it. CyanogenMod officially has over one million unique user installs. According to the CyanogenMod stats page, over 200,000 users have installed CyanogenMod 7.1 alone. The next closest is CM 7.1RC, with only 48,000. And as for the single most popular device? That would be the HTC Desire with nearly 81,000 installs.
Considering 700,000 Android devices are activated daily, and 200 million total devices have been activated so far, one million unique installs may not seem astronomical. But when you think of it in terms of 1 out of every 200 Android users on the planet uses CyanogenMod, that’s impressive to say the least. And those numbers don’t say anything about the passion, voice and devotion behind the Android modding community.
