Last night we reported that AOKP founder Roman Birg would be joining CyanogenMod Inc. Today, we have confirmation that Clark Scheff, the founder of Chameleon ROM aka ChaOS, will also be joining the CyanogenMod team as a software engineer in Seattle.
For those not aware, ChaOS ROM is an Open Source MIUI-esque alternative. ChaOS is based on CyanogenMOD and focuses on users having the ability to customize each piece of their Android device. The most notable feature of ChaOS is their theme engine. The entire framework on ChaOS has been modified around their theme engine, which allows users to mix and match themes until the user gets it just right.
Fans of ChaOS ROM should be happy to know that Clark still plans to contribute to Chameleon OS as time permits and as long as there are no conflicts of interest while being employed at Cyanogen Inc.
It seems that CyanogenMod is building a Dream Team of ROM developers from the Android development community. Clark’s knowledge and skills surrounding custom user interfaces and themes on Android should fit in nicely with CyanogenMod’s upcoming custom user interface plans.
