CyanogenMOD could become Oppo’s standard ROM

    I am actually very excited to see the N1 running CM out of the box. This could be the one for the (nerdy) History books!

    It’s not containers, it’s maintainers

    Cool. Could end up being a good partnership.

      Indeed, CM is a very good ROM and Oppo seem to have nice looking packaging (i.e. hardware).

    Ha told you so!

    Does that mean we will no longer have free access to CM software???

      Not necessarily. I’m not an expert on this subject, but I don’t think CM can directly make a profit from their ROMs because it is built off of Android. If their collaboration with Oppo is a success, they may eventually stop officially supporting devices from other manufacturers. This likely won’t be for awhile though and there will always be people in the XDA community that will develop ports and such for popular devices.

      How does this organization/company make any money? I don’t know how they make profit from a free software that they develop.

    This has got me really excited. If they decide to go with the Nexus model, I can see them gaining a lot of steam. If they go high-end with a high price tag though, it’s likely they’ll stay niche, which is unfortunate since CM is awesome.
