CyanogenMod surpasses 10 million install milestone

CyanogenMod Generic

The last few months of 2013 have been pretty big for the CyanogenMod team. After announcing that it was becoming its own company, the group confirmed its partnership with Oppo for a limited CyanogenMod edition of the N1, followed that up by unleashing its CyanogenMod Installer tool onto the masses and then revealed the aforementioned limited edition N1 as the first CyanogenMod device to earn Google’s CTS and CDD approval for use with El Goog’s official Android apps. That’s a pretty impressive list of milestones to hit in just a few months’ time, but it turns out that the CyanogenMod team isn’t done making news in 2013 quite yet.

According to the official CyanogenMod stats page, the custom Android ROM has been installed on over 10 million devices to date. The most popular version of CyanogenMod is the nightly flavor of 10.1, which has been loaded onto nearly 1.16 million pieces of hardware. Meanwhile, the device with the most installs is Samsung’s Galaxy S with 510,913, followed closely by the Galaxy S II and its 494,178 installs. It’s worth noting that devices that haven’t checked in with the CyanogenMod database within 90 days are removed, meaning that this pool of 10 million installs is made up of hardware that’s actively being used.

Not only is passing the 10 million install mark an impressive achievement for the CyanogenMod team, but it’s also a nice way to cap off what has been a big year for the group. Now Cyanogen Inc. has a nice number to boast about in any future partnership negotiations that it might get involved in. Plus, considering how often the team has been in the news lately and the fact that loading CyanogenMod onto a device is easier than ever thanks to the Installer app, that install base is likely to continue growing faster than it ever has before.

Have you ever installed CyanogenMod onto a phone or tablet? If so, which hardware did you load it up on?

    I root every one of my Android devices within the first week (if not the first day) of getting them, assuming root access was out for that device, and always run custom Roms from XDA. I’m perfectly fine with testing alpha and beta Roms as they are being initialized. That said, I’ve never really cared for CM(CyanogenMod). I had the Note 2 and then upgraded to the Note 3, and everyone knows that CM is pointless on the Note series as it breaks most of the features that persuaded you to purchase that device. Even on other Android phones I’ve owned (Evo 4G, Evo 3D, Evo LTE), I didn’t like CM as much as the other Roms available. Wouldn’t even consider CM on any of my tablets! Maybe if they eventually release a SOLID Rom then I might take another look, but for the most part there is nothing appealing about their Roms, in my opinion. Many other custom Roms offer great customization yet also allow you to use all of the features of that particular device, AND most importantly doesn’t have many basic functions broken like CM!

      I’ll admit it didn’t appeal to me for my note 3 because of the loss of function with the feature rich nite 3. That being said CM is great. They have been there since the forefront of Android development and continue to give user a stable clean rom to use that is bloat free. CM keep up the great work.
