First CyanogenMod Android phone gets Google approval

Last updated:

Cyanogen has announced it will ship the first Google-approved phone running a third-party version of Android.

The Oppo N1 claims to be the world’s first Google compatibility test suite-certified CyanogenMod handset, and it plans to launch on December 24. The plucky smartphone comes running a rooted version of Android 4.2 called CyanogenMod 10.2.

Google gave the third-party phone its blessing to access the Play Store and take its apps out for a date. This means users will be able to download apps from the Store directly instead of having to sneak around and sideload the software.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
