The CyanogenMod Oppo N1 smartphone gets Google’s approval, will ship on December 24


The first device running CyanogenMod out of the box, the popular and custom Android firmware developed by Cyanogen Inc, has been approved by Google and will go on sale December 24, CyanogenMod developer Koushik Dutta announced in a Google+ update today.

The Oppo N1 CyanogenMod 10.2 has officially passed Google’s compatibility test — or what is known as the CTS and CDD certification programs, CyanogenMod head moderator and community staff Abhisek Devkota says in a Google Groups update, as spotted first by Engadget.



Oppo’s N1 smartphone became the first to have a version with the CyanogenMod firmware pre-installed on it. The standard N1 model runs Color OS out of the box, Oppo’s latest take on Android version 4.2.2, and users had to set up CyanogenMod via another process.
