    If there's nothing else to say about last year's incorporation of Cyanogen Inc. and the company's plans going forward, it's that they're wildly ambitious. In contrast to a platform being helmed by a Microsoft or an Apple, we're seeing how what began as a side project for a group of enthusiasts can evolve into something greater when they really put their minds to changing the way we think about the software on our phones. With plans this year for the launch of the OnePlus One, the first really from-the-ground-up CyanogenMod phone, we're quite optimistic for what's on the horizon. Helping it ...

    The Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) is one of the front-runners when it comes to Android custom ROMs. Many have lauded their forward-thinking and rapid development schedule -- especially when compared to CyanogenMod. For those of you who don't remember, back when CyanogenMod was in its infancy we would see new features, tweaks, and changes being added to the ROM very frequently. Today the goals of the CM team have changed. They're aiming for a robust but stable feature-set, and compatibility with many devices as possible.
