To say that the CyanogenMod team has gained a ton of steam lately would be a huge understatement. It’s been a big year for the custom ROM developers, who got officially incorporated, raised tens of millions of dollars in funding, and are looking to strike up big hardware deals in the very near future. Now, another great milestone has been revealed.
Steve Kondik announced on Google+ that CyanogenMod has hit the 10 million user mark. And just in case you were unsure of the language, Kondik clarified to everyone that this is not total downloads, but actual active users reported based on the stats sent through the CyanogenMod statistics reporter. CyanogenMod statistics counts any device that has “checked in” within the last 90 days, so while these might not be true “up-to-the-minute” numbers, it’s still a good mark to measure.
Numbers like these are the reason why the company was able to incorporate and attract millions of dollars from investors, money that they hope will be used to bring the world’s first actual CyanogenMod phone (perhaps through Pete Lau’s OnePlus) and roll in millions more users in the years to come. You can find the full statistics over at CyanogenMod’s website.
