Well known developers from around the world including Chainfire, Xplodwild and Dees_Troy have come together to build another aftermarket ROM (or custom ROM) which aims to make the Android operating system more open and user-friendly – the OmniROM.
Koushik Dutta aka “Koush”, a part of the CyanogenMod team and the creator of various 3rd party tools and hacks like the ClockWork Mod recovery and ROM Manager, recently showcased his progress with AirPlay mirroring on Android.
Being technology enthusiasts, we’re sure you have either come across a phone running on the popular aftermarket firmware, CyanogenMod, or have flashed it on one of your own devices. The very firmware has become so popular that they even have a hardware partner now.
Chinese phone makers are finally looking to offer their phones to the international community, but with very little developer support available for MTK phones should we push Mediatek to honor GPL, or push manufacturers to rival processors.
Cyanogenmod is now a company! The team have funding and they will be working with a hardware maker which will run their excellent ROM! So if you had a choice of Chinese phone maker who would you like to see work with them?
