CyanogenMod 5.0 ROM makes its way onto the Nexus One

CyanogenMod 5.0 ROM makes its way onto the Nexus One
Owning one of the baddest Android handsets to be available to date, the Nexus One may seem a bit too ordinary by some with its stock Android experience. It’s even made more apparent when you realize the amount of cold hard cash you had to dish out to purchase the unlocked version. Now there is a bit more spice being thrown at the Nexus One thanks to some cyanogen-style fun with a custom ROM. CyanogenMod 5.0 for the Nexus One (5.0-beta4) is a new package that’s based on the latest AOSP code and can be used with or without Google’s apps. There’s a lot to like with this because it comes with various enhancements such as USB tethering, support for FLAC audio files, the all elusive multi-touch support in the browser, and other various other enhancements to the phone and contacts apps. It even manages to pack on a hack that somehow saves an additional 40MB in data. If you really want to experience all that CyanogenMod 5.0 has to offer, we’re sure it’ll keep you looking a bit more different than other owners who choose to stay faithful to the Google experience.
