HP TouchPad gets CyanogenMod Android first boot [Video]

HP's $100 fire sale of the TouchPad led to the webOS slate dropping into the hands of several developers, not least the CyanogenMod team, and they've been hard at work getting their customized version of Android running on the tablet. Already there's a video demo (which you can see after the cut) of Android booting on the TouchPad, and the team says it's hoping to release a multiboot ROM which will allow the users to choose between webOS, CyanogenMod and potentially other platforms too.

Cyanogen Hired by Samsung, Will Continue Work on CyanogenMod for Android

Hardware company Samsung today has been revealed to have acquired one of the single most notorious names in Android modification, that being Steve Kondik, aka "Cyanogen" of CyanogenMod 7.

OnePlus hands out alpha version of new custom ROM

OnePlus is definitely one company that will want to leave behind the problems of 2014 and look forward to the opportunities of 2015. In trying to start the year right, the Chinese startup is giving its fans a rather small taste of what is to come, specifically, the new custom ROM that it will be developing independent of its former partner Cyanogen.

India gives OnePlus some space, temporarily lifts ban

India gives OnePlus some space, temporarily lifts ban

India's High Court just handed OnePlus a timely holiday gift. Overturning the decision of a solitary judge, the court gave OnePlus some amount of reprieve and allowed it to continue selling its OnePlus One smartphone in India. But it is hardly a straight out victory for the Chinese startup as the case is still to formally begin in January.

OnePlus One successor gets hyped by insider source

OnePlus One successor gets hyped by insider source

The OnePlus One smartphone is a rather strange beast. It became one of the most wanted smartphones of the year despite being widely unavailable to a global market. Or perhaps it was precisely because of that rarity that it became highly desired. Of course, there's the high end specs and cheap price, too. Chinese startup OnePlus seems to believe that it can recreate that phenomenon, hopefully minus the sore points, with the OnePlus One successor. But what exactly will the OnePlus Two or OnePlus One Two look like?
