It's not clear at the moment if all versions of the GALAXY S 4 will be supported.

CyanogenMod restores opt-out feature after user backlash

On April Fools' Day, the folks behind the popular Android ROM CyanogenMod updated its CM Stats feature and removed the opt-out option for users, which wasn't an April Fools' joke. CM Stats collects a few details about users' devices, but with the opt-out feature removed, a handful of CyanogenMod users have complained. A day later, though, and the dev team restored the feature.

CyanogenMod founder leaves Samsung, bashes TouchWiz UI

Back in August 2011, CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik was hired by Samsung due to the man's expertise of the Android platform and its customization powers.

His words were mostly praises, but he created a little thunder when talking about the company's TouchWiz user interface.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 9, 2012

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 9, 2012

Welcome to Thursday folks, just one more work day before arriving at the weekend. Today we had next to nothing about the Apple vs. Samsung trial, except for the news that a similar South Korean trial has been frozen for fear of it becoming too similar to the one being held here in the US. The lack of Apple vs. Samsung news leaves room for far more interesting things, however, like space! The Curiosity rover sent back a color panoramic shot of the surface of Mars along with its first full resolution image, and it's a pretty awesome sight. Sadly, it wasn't all exciting news for NASA today, as the Morpheus moon lander failed during a flight test and exploded into flames. Luckily no one was hurt, but this is still a pretty big setback for the folks at NASA.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 2, 2012

Well folks, the end of Thursday is nearly upon us, which means we'll be kicking off the weekend soon. Today brought quite a bit more news about the Apple vs. Samsung trial than yesterday did, with Samsung's lawyer fighting back against allegations made by Apple's counsel. Things aren't looking too good for Samsung though, as it appears that Judge Lucy Koh has thrown out quite a bit of the company's evidence, and now Apple is requesting sanctions that uphold its patents based on yesterday's evidence leak. The upside to all of this, however, is that we got another peek at an early iPhone prototype today, so be sure to check that one out.

CyanogenMod 9 starts legacy device cut-off with Qualcomm

Galaxy S III CyanogenMod 9 software spews forward

The team behind CyanogenMod have just opened the doors for Samsung Galaxy S III users to test our their newest software build in "nightly" mode this week. The software known as CyanogenMod 9 is by far the most popular 3rd party "unofficial" build of Android on the web, and now that it's hit the Samsung Galaxy S III in what's essentially the equivalent of a Beta mode, it's about to get a whole lot more popular once again. This software will bring you much closer to a vanilla version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich than Samsung's own TouchWiz UI allows, this being one of the main draws for all CyanogenMod-laden devices on the market today.
