CyanogenMod has become one of the resident names to those who are into hacking or rather rooting their Android devices and installing custom ROMs on them.

CyanogenMod being a software startup would obviously require tie ups with some major OEMs to bring it’s products to market. One way could be to continue producing ROMs for existing manufacturers, but looks like the plans are bigger this time. Steve Kondik attended the launch of Oppo N1 held in Beijing on September 23rd and there are rumors that a partnership of some sort was discussed with some of the N1 devices coming with preloaded CyanogenMod OS.
