CyanogenMod 12.1 makes its way on to Mediatek powered phones in this video posted by phone maker elephone.
Elephone have been taking a good long look and vested interested in the alternate ROM community. The results have included them offering alternate ROMs to download for their range of Android phones, and the development of their own PC suite to make installation of such ROM’s a simple one click affair.
The latest system the Elephone team are working on is CyanogenMod 12.1. This is the latest build of the popular Android ROM and is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. The video below shows CM12.1 in action on the Mediatek powered P3000S, marking it the first time to see CM12.1 running on an MTK chip.
It’s quite a feat to have ported the ROM so quickly, but before the system is released to customers it really needs some major work done. Performance seems very slow with the UI lagging a lot. Still, it is a step in the right direction and we hope to see a snappier and stable version released in the coming weeks.
